DALLAS (AP) — Mavericks backup center Brandan Wright is out indefinitely after injuring his left shoulder in practice.
The team said he sustained a small fracture Tuesday but will not need surgery. He will be evaluated weekly and there is no timetable for his return.
The 6-foot-10 Wright re-signed with Dallas in the offseason after averaging career highs of 8.5 points and 4.1 rebounds. He’s the backup to newcomer Samuel Dalembert.
Wright is entering his third season with the Mavericks. He started his career at Golden State and had a brief stint with the Nets.
Dallas opens the season Oct. 30 against Atlanta.
