Dampier Update

New, comments

From Art Garcia:

Avery told us last night that Nowitzki and Stackhouse weren't making today's trip to Minny. Today the General decided to leave Erick Dampier back to rest his tender right shoulder. The good news on Damp, who reaggravated the strain last night, is the MRI showed no further damage and he could be back on the court Friday at home against Utah.

"I'm going to do what's best for me and the team," Damp said, adding he's not going to hurry back just to play.
So here's the probable Mavs depth chart against the TWolves tomorrow.

PG: Devin Harris Jason Terry J.J. Barea
SG: Jason Terry Greg Buckner Maurice Ager
SF: Josh Howard Devean George Maurice Ager
PF: Devean George Austin Croshere Kevin Willis
C: DeSagana Diop Kevin Willis

Pops Mensah-Bonsu is with the Fort Worth Flyers.

It's possible we might see Buckner start and Harris come off the bench like Avery tried in the middle of the season, but Devin did start both the previous games against Minnesota this season.

The really interesting thing -- that team could be a top 4 seed in the East.
