Dirk's MRI Results Are In - No Tears!

Art Gracia is reporting that the MRI this morning showed Dirk sprained his knee and ankle.

Dirk Nowitzki has a moderate left high ankle and mild left knee sprain, MRI tests confirmed. No timetable has been set for the return of the reigning MVP.

Nothing is torn which was obviously everyones biggest fear, so I guess this is good news.

Dirk always recovers from these ankle sprains rather quickly, but the sprained knee and the fact that this is a high ankle sprain could make this one a little more complicated.

My uneducated guess is that Mark Cuban's initial two week diagnosis will be a pretty good one.

Two weeks would see Dirk miss seven of the remaining 12 games.
