Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki will receive the key to Dallas from the mayor during the Nov. 21 game and other Mavs news to discuss.

The Dallas Mavericks have been lucky to have Dirk Nowitzki on their team for the last two decades plus.  Dirk is a legend both on and off the court.  He is a generational type player and with that comes plenty of honors.

Another will be coming Dirk’s way during Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.  Here is Dwain Price with the news.

Fans will want to pack the American Airlines Center to honor Dirk’s well-deserved recognition.  Here is Coach Carlisle had to say about it thanks to the Mavs official Twitter.

Dirk injury update

The Coach also provided an injury update on Dirk.  The news is fantastic, and Dwain Price has fans covered once again.

Updates on Barea, Matthews, and Powell

The coach shared a full injury report after Tuesday’s practice which fans can read about here courtesy of Bobby Karalla.

Having Wesley Matthews out hurts, but the return of J.J. Barea might be most important.  The Mavericks need Barea running that second unit against the Nets tonight.  Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
