The Mavericks had just two-fifths of the team's regular starting lineup, with Rajon Rondo (suspension), Tyson Chandler (hip) and Chandler Parsons (ankle) sidelined, and with Dirk Nowitzki scoring just four points, the Mavericks couldn't generate enough offense to hang with the Hawks despite ending the first quarter up 34-22.

Despite the struggling offense, Ellis was able to deliver his most efficient shooting performance since going 15 for 23 against the Spurs in late December. He also chipped in two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes in the loss. The Mavericks will square off with the Nets Saturday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle sounded optimistic that injured starters Tyson Chandler, Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo would be able to return to action after the All-Star break, the Associated Press reports.

Carlisle indicated that Chandler's ankle sprain wasn't considered serious and that Rondo is improving in his return from orbital and nasal fractures, though the team has yet to rule out surgery for the injured point guard. The Mavericks are awaiting the results of an MRI taken on Ellis's injured hip.

"We've got to get our best players back on the court, but we have to do it in an expeditious but prudent fashion," Carlisle said.

The Mavericks entered Tuesday in fifth place in the Western Conference. Just 2 1/2 games separate the third-place and seventh-place teams in the conference playoff race. The Mavericks are 3 1/2-point favorites at home against the Jazz Wednesday.

Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler expected to miss final game before the break


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Although the Mavericks did not provide many details on the injuries that knocked Monta Ellis (hip) and Tyson Chandler (ankle) out of Monday's loss to the Clippers, both are likely to sit out Wednesday's game against the Jazz, according to ESPN.

"Hopefully it's not going to be bad," star forward Dirk Nowitzki said following the game. "It's nothing we can really control now. We don't really expect either to play on Wednesday and we've got to be better. We've got to be better with what we've got."

Chandler landed awkwardly on his left ankle after being fouled by Spencer Hawes 39 seconds into the game. He never returned. Ellis exited with 8:03 remaining in the opening period with what coach Rock Carlisle indicated was "some kind of strain." He's due for an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

Wednesday's game against Utah will be Dallas' final game before the All-Star game, giving Ellis and Chandler plenty of recovery time for the final stretch of the season.
