Brandan Wright Day-to-Day With a Strained Quad

by October 01, 2012

Joining Chris Kaman on the chillin’ list in Dallas, is big man Brandan Wright. Neither injury is considered serious, but the Mavericks now have two centers out of action. Per the Star-Telegram: “One day after Chris Kaman suffered a sprained lower back on the opening day, Brandan Wright strained his quad during Sunday’s practice at American Airlines Center. Mavs officials believe the injuries are minor, but aren’t sure how long either player will be forced into limited duty before returning to the court. ‘Brandan Wright got a little quad strain today, but it’s not considered serious,’ coach Rick Carlisle said. ‘We’ll evaluate him and he’ll be day-to-day.’ As a backup last year who played in 49 games, Wright averaged 6.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 16.1 minutes. He often got pushed around because of his lithe body, but he did something about it by beefing up over the off-season.”
