Dallas forward Elton Brand is not with the team for the Mavericks' game Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors so he can be with his wife for the birth of his second child.
The short-handed Mavericks were also without forward Shawn Marion, who is expected to miss at least three games after leaving Monday night's game against Portland with a sprained left knee ligament. All-Star Dirk Nowitzki is still recovering from surgery and hasn't played this season.
Chris Kaman is expected to start in Brand's place and rookie Jae Crowder will fill in for Marion. Brand is averaging 5.8 points and 6.3 rebounds in four games this season.

O.J. Mayo and the rest of the Dallas Mavericks newcomers are getting into quite a groove while waiting for Dirk Nowitzki, even though they don't always know exactly what they're going to do next.
With what Mayo best described as organized street ball, the Mavericks have shot better than 60 percent from the field in consecutive games for the first time in franchise history...

DALLAS (AP) -- O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman each scored 22 points as the short-handed Dallas Mavericks won their third straight game, beating the Toronto Raptors 109-104 Wednesday night.
The Mavericks, who jumped out to a 16-point lead early in the second quarter, improved to 4-1 for the first time since 2007-08 despite playing without forwards Shawn Marion and Elton Brand. Marion...
It's Election time and Texas-lovin' Chris Kaman and I are discussing - half-jokingly, I guess – the idea of our state seceding from the Union. ‘I might be disowned for this, or something,’ Kaman tells me, ‘but … ’ We’ll, this is Premium Mavs Stuff, and supremely funny stuff. C’mon inside, my fellow Americans, Texas and Mavs fans:
At some point in the next few weeks, the Dallas Mavericks will welcome Dirk Nowitzki back to the lineup. But against all odds, they're doing just fine without him.
In past seasons the Mavs have looked lost without their superstar. But with a surprising 4-1 start, they appear to be flourishing. And with each passing day, the degree of difficulty seems to rise. Already missing...
Here we are just 5 games into the season and we are 4-1 without one of the biggest players in the league on the court; who would have thought that the Dallas Mavericks would be where they were without Dirk Nowitzki. I know that we have recapped this over and over again in the media, but I really feel that once the young, new team of players on the Mavericks won the game against...

The Dallas Mavericks suffered a big blow when they lost 11-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki to knee surgery. O.J. Mayo's play of late has made Nowitzki's absence a little easier to withstand.
Having scored 30 or more points in consecutive games, Mayo will try to keep that streak going Wednesday night against the visiting Toronto Raptors.
The Mavericks (3-1) signed Mayo with...

It’s been an NBA kind of day around the old website here, so it seems only fitting we feature another NBA related post, albeit one that is quite a bit more fanciful and carefree than Dwight Howard’s airball free throw and Kobe’s terrifying death stare.
Enter Mavs forward Dirk Nowitzki. The big German...
DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks' streak of shooting at least 60 percent ended at two games, but they did extend their winning streak to three in a row, dumping the Toronto Raptors 109-104 Wednesday at the American Airlines Center. The Raptors trailed by double digits for most of the game but came back with a late charge, getting to within five points twice in the final minute...
