Dirk Nowitzki: (Knee) Practices With Starters Friday
Update: Nowitzki (knee) practiced with the starters Friday for the first time all season, reports.

Recommendation: Coach Rick Carlisle wouldn't commit to starting Nowitzki against the Hornets on Saturday, but it's sounding like Nowitzki's return to the starting lineup is around the corner. The 34-year-old posted a season-high 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting in 29 minutes Wednesday, and while there's no telling exactly when Nowitzki will be starting again, his fantasy value is trending upward.
