Description: Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki had an awful game Sunday versus San Antonio.
Insight: Dirk (11 points, eight rebounds) made just four of his 14 field goal attempts and was invisible when the Mavs needed him most in the fourth quarter (0-for-4, two fouls, one turnover in the final six minutes of regulation). The Spurs have given him trouble all season as the seven-footer is averaging just 17 ppg in five games against them in 2013-14 (season average is 21.7 ppg).
 
3/30/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Mavs power forward Dirk Nowitzki collected 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists Saturday in a win against Sacramento.
Insight: Eight of his 19 points came in the fourth quarter. Dirk now has at least seven rebounds in each of his last four games. That's significant because he's only averaging 6.1 rpg for the season.
 
3/26/2014 9:14:00 AM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki had 32 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals, two threes and a block in Dallas' victory over the Thunder Tuesday night.
Insight: Believe it or not, it was just the fourth double-double of 2013-14 for Nowitzki and certainly one of his best all-around stat lines this season.
 
2/26/2014 8:19:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki went to the locker room in the first minute of the first quarter Tuesday against the Pelicans, but he returned to the game a few minutes later.
Insight: Nowitzki took a jumper and one of New Orleans' players made contact with his left arm. He left the floor clutching his left shoulder but probably just had a stinger.
 
2/12/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Pacers, according to Earl K. Sneed of mavs.com.
Insight: Nowitzki suffered a sprained ankle in the first half Tuesday at Charlotte but was able to return to the game and finished with 16 points in 24 minutes. The injury snapped a string of seven consecutive games with 20+ points.

Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki told reporters after last night's game that he would be available Wednesday against the Pacers. SOURCE: Chuck Cooperstein, 103.3 FM ESPN Dallas
Insight: Nowitzki suffered what is believed to be at least the 12th sprained ankle of his career on Tuesday. He played through the injury and scored 16 points in 24 minutes of action. Expect a similar output tonight in Indiana.
 
2/11/2014 8:25:00 PM
Description: Mavs power forward Dirk Nowitzki has returned to action after suffering a sprained left ankle early in Tuesday's game against Charlotte.
Insight: It might already be too late as the Bobcats have jumped out to a 21-point lead early in the second half. Dirk has just two points in 12 minutes so far.
 
2/11/2014 7:49:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki left Tuesday's game against Charlotte after twisting his left ankle. SOURCE: Tim MacMahon, ESPN Dallas
Insight: He limped off the court and is now being treated in the team's locker room. If Dirk is out for the game, we'd likely see Brandan Wright fill in for him at power forward.
 
Hot1/31/2014 11:06:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki has made 34-of-56 (.607) from the field and 27-of-27 from the foul line while averaging 33.3 ppg his last three games.
Insight: Nowitzki put up 34 points and had five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-point in Friday's win over Sacramento. He was named to his 12th All-Star team Thursday.
 
1/26/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki led all scorers with 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting Sunday against the Pistons.
Insight: Nowitzki has averaged 21.2 points and 6.0 rebounds this season. We'll see if that's enough to get him into his 12th All-Star game as a reserve.
 
Hot1/26/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: After putting up 38 points and 17 rebounds Wednesday night against Houston, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki is averaging 21.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season.
Insight: Nowitzki is shooting .483/.393/.908 FG/3P/FT on the season and has averaged 33 points and 13 boards his last two games.
 
1/24/2014 2:24:00 PM
Description: Mavs power forward Dirk Nowitzki was a late scratch Wednesday against Toronto, but will play Friday, according to mavs.com.
Insight: Wednesday appears to have been a rest day for a tired 35-year-old body, not due to injury and fantasy owners should expect to see the "regular" Nowitzki on Friday.
 
1/22/2014 7:16:00 PM
Description: Mavs power forward Dirk Nowitzki was a late scratch Wednesday against Toronto. SOURCE: Josh Lewenberg, TSN 1050
Insight: We're going to assume it's just a rest day for the veteran. Shawn Marion (11.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg) is filling in at the four with Jae Crowder (5.5 ppg) getting the start at small forward. It's only Nowitzki's second absence of the season.
 
Hot1/12/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki's 40 points helped Dallas take home a three-point win over the Pelicans Saturday night.
Insight: Nowitzki made 10-of-20 from the field, including 5-of-9 from 3-point range, and picked up another 15 points from the foul line. The veteran is having another terrific season, shooting .488/.410/.899 and averaging 21.3 ppg.
 
Hot1/7/2014 11:00:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 points with seven rebounds and four assists Tuesday against the Lakers.
Insight: Looks like the ankle injury he suffered last Wednesday isn't an issue. He's averaged 23 ppg in three games since then.
 
1/4/2014 9:05:00 AM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki played through his ankle injury Friday against the Clippers and had 24 points, four rebounds, four assists, four threes and two steals.
Insight: Nowitzki was a game-time decision due to the ankle injury he suffered Wednesday. We'll see how he responds to playing 33 minutes Friday.
 
1/3/2014 7:49:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) will play Friday against the Clippers, according to Earl K. Sneed of mavs.com.
Insight: Nowitzki suffered a left ankle injury early in Wednesday's game and returned to play 32 minutes. He made just 3-of-14 from the field for nine points, however. He's less than 100 percent, so temper expectations for Friday.
 
1/3/2014 1:09:00 PM
Description: Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki hurt his ankle early in Wednesday's game and will be a game-time decision, according to the team's website.
Insight: Nowitzki struggled in his 32 minutes on Wednesday shooting just 3-for-14 from the field and 0-for-4 from beyond the arc. He obviously won't be at 100 percent so you may have to temper your expectations.
 
Hot1/1/2014 6:21:00 PM
