DALLAS – Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle didn’t sound too optimistic that center Chris Kaman will be able to play in Tuesday’s regular season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kaman has missed the last three games while nursing a strained right calf. The 7-footer also missed less than a week of practice earlier this fall when he sprained his lower back during the first day of trianing camp.
Now the Mavs aren’t sure how long he’ll be on the sidelines.
“I don’t know how realistic (playing opening night) is,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said. “I know he mentioned the other day that he thought he could do it, but we’re going to have to evaluate him
each day and just kind of see what’s what.
“He’s working at it and he’s made some mild progress. He’s not there yet, and so we’ll just working with him.’’
