04:07 PM ET 12.06 | The Dallas Mavericks are now 8-10 after being blown out by the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, and they got some bad news on the injury recovery of their biggest star. Dirk Nowitzki was originally targeting December for his return from knee surgery in October, but he now says that he probably won't make that date. "I don't think middle of December is happening now to be honest," he said. "That was my goal a couple weeks ago. But the swelling was in there too long and it held me back too long and I couldn't start working soon enough."
