Nowitzki will sit tonight against the Kings


SACRAMENTO – Dirk Nowitzki will not play tonight against the Sacramento Kings, according to the Dallas Mavericks, so he can rest.

This is the fourth game Nowitzki has missed this season so he could rest. And all four games were on the back end of a back-to-back.

He also missed games against Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Denver.

Nowitzki played 30 minutes and was just 4-of-15 from the field with 15 points in Wednesday’s 128-114 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
