    Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki will miss at least a week because of lingering soreness in the 38-year-olds right Achilles tendon. Michael Roberts Jersey .Hes going to be out for a while, coach Rick Carlisle said during his news conference Friday night after the Mavs fell to 0-5 for the first time in franchise history with a 105-95 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. Well update you guys in about seven days. Hes not going to play at least until then.Nowitzki, the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history, did not play in the second half of Fridays loss because of the soreness, which has been an issue since late in the preseason. He had five points on 2-of-6 shooting in 16 minutes during the first half.It gets better on days off, and as soon as I go out there and try to push off, try to show on pick-and-rolls, run backwards, all that stuff is just uncomfortable and sore, Nowitzki told reporters. So just thought Id just shut it down. I mean, it makes no sense to keep dragging this for weeks, you know? Obviously, it hasnt really gotten better, so were going to take a few days off and not get on the court, not do all the stuff that makes it sore. And hopefully, Ill be better in a couple days and we can ramp it back up.But for now, thats where were at. It just hasnt gotten to the point where I can move well, where I can move pain-free, so it just doesnt make any sense to be out there.Nowitzki, a 13-time All-Star who remains the Mavs franchise player in his 19th NBA season, has led Dallas to the playoffs in 15 of the past 16 seasons. The lone exception was the 2012-13 season, when Nowitzki missed the first two months after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.Its bad news, but well get through it, Carlisle said in his news conference. Weve gone some periods like this before, but his health is the most important thing. Hes more than willing to continue playing, but its pretty obvious that things arent right, so weve got to do the right thing here and back him off.Nowitzki missed the Mavs second and third games of the season because of an illness and said upon his return that he hoped the Achilles issue had subsided. However, it flared up again after he played 29 minutes in Wednesdays loss to the Utah Jazz.It felt better after a couple days of not doing anything, but as soon as I got back out there with the cutting, with the showing, with the quick changing of direction, it went right back to the same old [pain], Nowitzki said. Im already obviously not moving great at 38 as it is, and to be out there on one leg is really not helping myself. Its not helping the team at all.I dont think its anything major. Its just that the Achilles is inflamed. Weve been trying a bunch of stuff. Ive been getting treatment for hours every day. My guy from Germany is even here. Hes been treating me every day for over two hours and Ive been on the meds, and nothing really has made it better to the point where I can move out there without it bothering me. Glover Quin Jersey .

Match factsSeptember 6, 2016 Start time 1900 local (1330 GMT)Big PictureSri Lanka may have the beginnings of a future-proof Test team, but in the shorter formats, the juggernaut that is their transition rolls relentlessly on. So long has it reigned now, it probably deserves to be capitalised: Transition. Perhaps in years to come, Sri Lankan historians will see fit to add a prefix, and it will become The Great Transition. Whatever the case, it continues to guzzle up players and spit out empty husks of international careers, chewing up those husks and spitting them up even emptier, fans wailing by the roadside in rags, a terrible limited-overs drought afflicting their once-lush land.Back together in this current squad are players like Chamara Kapugedara, Sachithra Senanayake and Thisara Perera, many of whom had
