Dirk Nowitzki doesn't mind coming off the bench with the arrival of DeAndre Jordan and said that he should be 100% healthy by training camp.
Nowitzki had ankle surgery this offseason to remove two bone spurs but has already begun scrimmaging and playing 5-on-5. As far as coming off the bench he says, "Hey, if that's the role, and we play great with it, then I'm all for it, but that's what camp is for — to see what works, who works best with each other. " Either way, he still put up fantasy value last year as a center eligible player that drained 1.8 triples per game in 24.2 minutes At 40 years old, the future Hall of Famer should continue to see a 20-24 minute role this season and maintain top-100 value in standard leagues.
