The Mavericks are resting seven of their players in their preseason game against the Magic on Thursday.
Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes, Devin Harris, Wesley Matthews, Josh McRoberts, J.J. Barea and Nerlens Noel will all be taking the night off. The Mavs are basically just resting all their older, established players to give more playing time to their young talent. There aren’t any injuries to report, and Dallas is expected to start a backcourt consisting of Dennis Smith Jr. and Seth Curry.
