Nowitzki was back to his efficient ways against the Bucks on Sunday shooting 66.7 percent from the field. He is still slightly out of rhythm because of his back injury, but it seems as if Coach Carlisle is taking a page out of San Antonio's book with his decisions to sit Nowitzki or keep him out of the lineup from time to time.

Nowitzki (back) will start Friday against the Suns, Dwain Price of the Star-Telegram reports.

Dirk looked to suffer a small back injury early in the week, and it was not clear if that had any impact on his absence in the second game of a back-to-back Wednesday. He is not listed on the team injury report either, and should be entered back into fantasy lineups as usual.

Nowitzki (rest) will not play Wednesday, the Star-Telegram's Dwain Price reports.

He suffered a minor back injury Tuesday night, but the team downplayed it, and there's certainly a chance this is strictly for rest as it is the second night of a back-to-back. Look for Brandan Wright and Al-Farouq Aminu to see extra minutes Wednesday. He should be back in the lineup Friday against the Suns.

Nowitzki (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Saturday, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

The Mavs will take advantage of a soft spot in the schedule on the second night of a back-to-back, after Nowitzki played 32 minutes in Friday's win over the Raptors. Last time Dallas faced Philadelphia, back on Nov. 13, the Mavericks led 38-10 at the end of the first quarter and 73-29 at halftime. Expect some combination of Greg Smith, Brandan Wright, and Al-Farouq Aminu to absorb Nowitzki's minutes in what should be a blowout.
