Dennis Smith has been ruled out of Saturday’s game with left knee soreness, though Rick Carlisle says that it’ll be a precautionary absence.
It’s Smith’s left knee, which is concerning since that’s the ACL he tore a few years ago. The Mavs remain hopeful that DSJ feels better tomorrow and will be able to play against Houston later that night. It’s an injury that’s already cost him some time this season, however, so Dallas could choose to play it safe. J.J. Barea and Yogi Ferrell should both get extra time, with Barea the better play for assists and steals and Ferrell the pick if you need points and threes.
