Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles’) will be one of three Mavs starters that will not play in Tuesday night’s game against the Kings.
Nowitzki said his Achilles’ stiffened up Sunday when the Mavs beat the Bucks. Nowitzki was able to play 26 minutes in that game but was concerned about how it would react after a day off. Without Nowitzki, Curry and Matthews, the Mavs will start giving more minutes to their youngster. It’s not clear if Harrison Barnes will play Tuesday night. Earlier he was listed as likely to get the night off for rest.
Per Rick Carlisle, Curry (left shoulder), Matthews (rest) & Dirk (sore right Achilles) are out vs. the Kings. Dirk & Curry are day-to-day.
