DALLAS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki is healthy and ready for the opener with a revamped Dallas roster.

A year ago, the big German was just days removed from knee surgery and had to watch a roster full of new faces for the first 27 games. That’s the biggest reason a 12-year playoff streak ended for the Mavericks.

Nowitzki has two new guards in his starting lineup for the second straight year. Now the Mavericks have to see if Monta Ellis and Jose Calderon will be better than the pairing of Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo.

Dallas starts getting answers Wednesday night at home against Atlanta.

Coach Rick Carlisle says the “mission this year is to get back to winning in the playoffs.”
