Early game alert! This evening, the 18-16 Portland Trail Blazers visit the 25-8 Dallas Mavericks (Media notes). Prepare for a different Mavs team tonight due to injuries. Also, Joel Przybilla returns tonight from his ankle injury.
Injury report: Stop me if you've heard this one: Brandon Roy is out indefinitely. For the Mavs, Dirk Nowitzki is still out, and Caron Butler underwent surgery this morning for a torn patella tendon (aka the Joel injury). He's done for the season.
