CHICAGO -- Following a one-game absence because of a stomach illness, Dallas center Brandan Wright will be back on the court tonight at 7 at the United Center when the Mavericks square off against the Chicag Bulls.
Forward Dirk Nowitzki said the Mavs missed Wright's presence Thursday night when they lost to the San Antonio Spurs, 116-107.
"His length, his athleticism, he can play above the rim, finish above the rim, grab some rebounds, block some shots,'' Nowitzki said after this morning's shootaround. "He's a big player for us.
"We missed him early on in the season for a long time, and we’re happy he's back.''
