One positive for the Mavs is Devean George is in uniform. Coach Rick Carlisle sounded doubtful that he'd actually be able to play against the Knicks, but first steps first.
Now onto another player, Jerry Stackhouse, who's start to the season has been bizarre and disappointing. He is not in uniform tonight, but rather sitting on the bench in coat and tie. It might not be an injury that has Stackhouse on the bench, but more will be known after the game.
