Good game yesterday (Box Score | Caplan Recap | Moore Recap | Garcia Recap), although not particularly exciting. The best thing was that Dallas walked over a team the way they should. That's only second time this season they have done that -- and the other time was the third game of the season.

That further look would be an MRI.
If it is nothing too serious it actually came at decent time. The Mavs schedule is fairly easy right now, so Avery can afford to rest him.
