DALLAS (AP) -- Mavericks point guard Derek Fisher left Dallas' game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night with a strained right knee.
Fisher had his shot blocked by Evan Turner and went down to the floor holding his knee after he landed. He walked slowly to locker room with 6:50 left in the first quarter.
The team said Fisher's return to the game is doubtful.
Dallas coach Rick Carlisle told reporters before the game that Fisher wasn't going to play because of the flu, but the 17th year veteran started before his early exit.
Fisher signed as a free agent with the Mavericks on Nov. 29. The 17th-year guard came in averaging 9.4 points and 3.9 assists in eight games this season.

Somehow I feel like I’m in the middle of a “Where’s Waldo” cartoon when I’m watching the Dallas Mavericks as of late. I am and will always be a MFFL, but I have to agree with some of the critics here lately, that the Mavericks are in for a heap of trouble if they don’t clean up their game. Dallas had gone on a three game winning streak, anxiously awaiting the return of...

The Mavericks should be dangerous come playoff time.
It has been eight long years since Vince Carter was traded to the New Jersey Nets, but basketball fans in Toronto have yet to forgive or forget what happened. A return to Toronto for a season would allow him to mentor the team’s younger player and earn back the good favour of basketball fans here in Canada. Then, when he retires, Carter can have his number hanging in the ACC where it belongs.
A win is always a good thing, but tonight’s victory for the Dallas Mavericks over the Philadelphia 76ers was meaningful for quite a few reasons. The schedule for the Mavs was relatively light to begin the year. That seemed ideal at the time considering Dirk Nowitzki was aiming to return from knee surgery by Thanksgiving. [...]
