Dirk Nowitzki received surgery on his ankle that will cause him to miss the Mavericks’ remaining games but says this does not change plans for next season.
Nowitzki, over the course of the season, returned top-70 value on a per game basis and top-50 value total. That’s nice to see from the 20-year veteran. He was not a major liability in any category and got in 77 games before this ankle surgery. If Nowitzki does indeed return as intended, it may be tough to repeat this season, but it all lies on what personnel changes the Mavericks make going into next season.
