Dirk Nowitzki Not Concerned About Finger Injury


According to Nowitzki, the torn finger tendon will have minimal effect on his performance in the NBA Finals. From the Star-Telegram: “Dirk Nowitzki didn’t get this far to have his dream shattered by an injured finger. So when the Dallas Mavericks play Game 2 of the NBA Finals tonight at 8 against the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena, Nowitzki will try not to let the torn ligament in his left middle finger affect him. He will try to play on as if nothing is wrong — even though something is wrong. ‘I don’t think it’s going to be necessarily bothering me on the shot,’ Nowitzki said prior to Wednesday’s practice. “It’s not like you do anything crazy with it. It’s going to be other stuff — dribbling, passing, catching, swiping down — stuff like that. I think it will be OK.’”

    It’d be funny if he rolled out on a wheelchair, as a shot at PP. Jumped out & did one of those german dances in the wooden shoes , yodling. Why not?
