Dirk Nowitzki did not play in the fourth quarter of the Mavericks’ win over Portland due to a foot injury. “At this point, it’s not considered serious,” coach Rick Carlisle told reporters. “But you don’t mess around with something like that.” Nowitzki scored only six points – his fewest since his third game of the season – on 2-of-7 shooting in 24 minutes. He suffered the injury during the second quarter but played in the third quarter before the decision was made to sit him for the remainder of the game.
