Dirk will not play tonight--surgery imminent?
All we know right now is that Dirk is not playing tonight and that he will address the media after the game. It's a good bet, but not a certain bet, that he's on his way to some kind of surgery. Why? Well, there's no doubt he wants to get acclimated with these guys, so if something's stopping him from playing tonight, just a few days from having his knee drained, the odds are it isn't good. But we'll know more soon, stay tuned.
