Dirk Nowitzki is "getting closer" to returning to the court and may be able to play by the end of November if things progress well but the Mavs still don't have a firm timetable for the veteran's return.
Nowitzki returned to practice last Friday and should be back in the next week or so, barring any setbacks. When he does return it'll eat into the minutes of Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber, though the Mavs will surely take things slow with their franchise icon. He's someone you can stash away in deeper roto formats but we're skeptical that he ends up playing enough to make a dent in 12-team formats.
