Dallas Mavericks

Chandler questionable against the Nets


DALLAS – Dallas Mavericks center Tyson Chandler is questionable to play in Saturday’s home game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Chandler sat out Wednesday’s game in Atlanta after he injured his left hip flexor late during Tuesday’s home game against Toronto. Chandler went through some non-contact portions of Friday’s practice and is hopeful of playing against the Nets.

"I feel a lot better than the way I did before the start of the Atlanta game,’’ Chandler said. "I’m just hoping that things continue to go the way they’ve been going and I continue to feel better so I can get out on the court.’’

Without Chandler to control things in the middle, the Mavs lost to the Atlanta Hawks, 104-87.

Coach Rick Carlisle said: "Tyson went through portions of practice and he’s doing much better.’’
