DALLAS (AP) -The Dallas Mavericks upgraded the injury status of Dirk Nowitzki to day-to-day on Tuesday, the eve of a pivotal Western Conference game against Golden State.
The reigning MVP, who has been out since spraining his left ankle and knee March 23, would be re-evaluated Wednesday to see if he can play against the Warriors.
The Mavs (46-28) began Tuesday a half-game ahead of Golden State for the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference. The Warriors play at San Antonio on Tuesday night.
Nowitzki landed awkwardly on his left leg after running to block a shot in a loss to San Antonio. He was diagnosed with a moderate high ankle sprain and a mildly sprained knee. The Mavs are 2-2 since he was sidelined.
