DALLAS -- Rookie Gal Mekel will start tonight for the Dallas Mavericks at point guard.
Following an MRI performed today, starting point guard Jose Calderon has a bone bruise in his right ankle and he will not play tonight.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Calderon is a "gametime decision'' as far as if he will play tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves at American Airlines Center. He also lists him as day-to-day.
"He had an MRI where there was nothing other than a bruise to show up on the MRI,'' Carlisle said. "So it's good news.''
Calderon suffered the injury at some point in the first half of Friday's 88-87 loss in Atlanta.
