Dallas Mavericks starting point guard Dennis Smith Jr. missed the Dec. 5 game against the Pelicans with a flare-up of his wrist injury and more news.

The Dallas Mavericks were without point guard Dennis Smith Jr. against the New Orleans Pelicans on Dec. 5. It marked the second game he had missed with a wrist injury, and that is where the worry comes in.

DSJ missed the Nov. 24 win over the Celtics with a right wrist injury. Then, he was on the injury report as questionable for four straight games but played each time. Now, he misses against the Pelicans because he re-aggravated the injury.

Here is what DSJ had to say about it courtesy of Dwain Price.

That news is not positive. It would not be surprising to see Dennis Smith Jr. miss a few games to let his wrist heal properly.

Luckily, the Mavericks are off until Saturday when they face their in-state rival the Houston Rockets. Fans can bet DSJ will want to play in that game, but only time will tell if he is healthy enough to do so.
