Fisher was sidelined for last night’s matchup against the Miami Heat, and he will also miss tonight’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies and Sunday’s matchup with the San Antonio Spurs. Dallas’ next contest comes on Thursday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Prior to his injury, Fisher had averaged 27.9 minutes per night while only shooting 35.5 percent from the field. In place of the veteran the Mavericks are expected to turn to backup point guard Darren Collison.
