Nowitzki has knee surgery, out 6-8 weeks

DALLAS -- Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki underwent arthroscopic surgery on his bothersome right knee Friday, the first operation of his 14-year NBA career.

The Mavericks announced that Nowitzki, 34, is expected to resume on-court activities within approximately six weeks, which means it's certain that he will miss the beginning of the regular season.

The Mavs have 13 regular-season games scheduled during that six-week window.

The 11-time All-Star has missed the Mavericks' last three preseason games due to swelling and soreness in the knee. He hoped to put the surgery off until after the season, but it was determined that he needed to have the cause of the inflammation dealt with now.

The Mavericks' medical staff drained the knee twice this month, and the swelling returned within days both times. Nowitzki's knee did not respond as hoped to a program of rest, icing and low-impact conditioning work this week, leading to the decision to get the knee scoped.

"If it's going to keep swelling up on me, that's obviously not a way to go throughout an 82-game season and hopefully long playoff run," Nowitzki said Monday after the swelling returned again following his participation in three consecutive practices.

Guys always been in spectacular shape health wise you gotta think eventually something had to give.

That being said, good thing he got it now. In the meanwhile the new players will get more burn and acclamate themselves until Dirk comes back.

if Dirk is lucky he can play 10 more years with his style of game

if Dallas are reloading this should be a year of getting healthy for Dirk. they might go for another title under his leadership
