Mavericks Injury News: Dirk Nowitzki Eyeing Mid-December Return

Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki told reporters, including Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News, that he will be sidelined for at least another three weeks as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

“Well, unfortunately not as soon as we all hoped, I think,” Nowitzki said when asked when he might return to the court. “I think originally when the last statement we put out was it’s going to take six weeks before I do any basketball activity. Unfortunately, I tried, but I couldn’t cut the time down.”

Nowitzki underwent knee surgery during training camp, and the Mavericks initially hoped he could return closer to Thanksgiving. However, the All-Star acknowledged the rehab process has been challenging and said he now views mid-December as a more likely return timeframe.

Nowitzki faced a few setbacks during recovery and is now ramping up his rehab effort. He expects to return to the court and resume running and other basketball-related activities in two weeks.
