07:21 AM ET 11.26 | Whoops. Samuel Dalembert missed the Dallas Mavericks' shootaround Monday morning when he overslept and [Rick Carlisle] used both DeJuan Blair as the starter and Bernard James as the backup center before putting Dalembert in the game at the start of the second quarter. Dalembert was apologetic about the situation. "I'm very disappointed at myself," he said. "I let my teammates down. I don't have an excuse. And it shouldn't have happened. I'm still trying to get over it." ... Dalembert has been fighting bruised ribs, but that had nothing to do with this situation. Had he been at shootaround, he would have started. Asked if Dalembert would be back in the lineup Wednesday against Golden State, Carlisle said: "We'll see." Said Dalembert: "Whatever I have to do."

Nit picking, maybe he was tired or did not set the alarm, problem with the Mavericks is that the organization always send the wrong message; just as they did when it did not resign Tyson Chandler.
