Nowitzki to miss Mavs' opener as left ankle rehab continues

DALLAS (AP) Dirk Nowitzki's debut in his record 21st season with the Dallas Mavericks won't be in the opener.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Friday the 40-year-old Nowitzki will miss "multiple weeks" with a longer-than-expected recovery from left ankle surgery in April. The Mavericks open the season Wednesday in Phoenix.

Nowitzki said he had a setback when he started playing again about a week before training camp. He hasn't practiced in the preseason. The surgery just before the end of last season was to remove bone spurs.
