What is it with former Lakers players getting homesick?
In a statement he issued Saturday night to confirm the move, Fisher said: "In Tuesday's game against Philadelphia, I suffered an injury to my patellar tendon. The recovery time will be approximately two weeks. With this news and the difficulty I have been having being away from my family, I have asked the organization to waive me so I can return home."
In his place, the Mavericks will bring up current D-League star Chris Douglas-Roberts, who has been impressing fans on the Texas Legends this season. Douglas-Roberts will play in tonight's Legends game in Frisco and then fly to meet the team in San Antonio tomorrow.
Stay tuned as this develops.
