04:38 PM ET 12.27 | Dirk Nowitzki's right knee may be recovered after sitting out for two months following surgery, but the rest of his body is still catching up. The Dallas Mavericks' star admitted that his conditioning is still not where he wants it to be, which is why his minutes have been limited thus far. "My wind actually felt fine for the first game back after two months," Nowitzki said. "But my legs were a little heavy. There was just a little pep missing. I can't really move around or get up out there. So I think we're going to monitor my minutes until I start feeling better and moving better out there. But for the first time in two months, it actually was decent."

No surprise. He'll get it back. Just give him a couple weeks.
