Some good news for the Dallas Mavericks fans as their star Dirk Nowitzki is not at all injured. The Dunkin Dutchman tore the tendon in his left middle finger, but fortunately it isn’t as sore as he expected, giving him optimism that he won’t have to wear a support for the remainder of the NBA Finals. Vegas odds.
Nowitzki tore the tendon in his finger when he was called for a foul after stealing the ball from Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh with less than 4 minutes remaining in the Mavericks’ Game 1 loss Tuesday night.
During a timeout break in the 4th quarter Nowitzki got his finger fixed but it was bent at an awkward angle immediately after the injury, which typically takes six weeks to heal. However, Dirk played the remainder of the final period. Betting lines.
Mavs athletic trainer Casey Smith did a quick fixing job with Dirk’s finger by straightening it and taping it. Nowitzki acknowledged that he has some anxiety about how the damage could change aspects of his game other than jump-shooting, such as controlling the ball, finishing penetrations, catching and passing.
The Mavericks aren’t worried about Nowitzki’s capability to deal with any hurting. He has played through a number of injuries in his career and has a long track record of extraordinarily quick come backs from sprained ankles. Sports scores.
