Rick Carlisle didn't sound optimistic about Harrison Barnes being ready for the start of the regular season, saying, "I’d love to have him back for the first game, but we’ve got to prepare to play without him."
Barnes was jogging on a treadmill at practice earlier today but the general vibe has always been that he'd miss at least opening night. With both Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki on the sidelines, the Mavs could need to lean on bench guys like Dorian Finney-Smith and Maxi Kleber in the interim.
