The hot Dallas Mavericks may have suffered a blow to cool their winning streak.

All-Star and team MVP Dirk Nowitzki left early in the second quarter against the Charlotte Bobcats.

The injury was suffered when the Bobcats’ Josh McRoberts drove in and stepped on the left foot of Nowitzki.

Nowitzki played just 10 minutes and had 2 points and 3 rebounds before leaving the game.

Nowitzki is averaging 21.9 points and 6.1 rebounds on the season.

Update: Dirk returned to start the second half.
