The Mavs signed Kaman to a one-year, $8 million contract this past July, then he promptly sprained his lower back on the first day of training camp. Less than three weeks later, Kaman strained his right calf.
The latter injury prevented Kaman from playing in Tuesday’s regular season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers, and will also keep him off the court in Wednesday’s game in Utah.
“It’s kind of weird because it’s not the stuff that. . .the calf isn’t something that he’s ever had a problem with before,’’ Cuban said before the Mavs-Lakers game. “We’ve got Frankenstein working for
us and if we have to give him a new leg we’ll give him a new leg.’’
Kaman will be back in the lineup for the Mavs on Saturday in their home opener against the Charlotte Bobcats.
