Dirk Nowitzki: Will Come Off Bench Thursday
Update: Nowitzki (knee) will come off the bench in Thursday's game against the Thunder, Earl Sneed of reports.

Recommendation: Nowitzki made his season debut Sunday and did not report any setbacks, but it appears head coach Rick Carlisle wants to ease his veteran big man back into action. The Mavericks have lost six of their last seven games, so expect Nowitzki to jump into the starting lineup as soon as Carlisle believes he is ready for a full workload.
