When Dallas Mavericks guard Shane Larkin broke his ankle during a summer league practice in July, there were questions whether or not he’d be ready to go by the time training camp began. While the initial timeframe for his return was two to three months, Larkin has apparently recovered on the shorter end of that estimate, as Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports that it appears the rookie will be "ready to roll" when the Mavericks begin training camp.Hearing our friend @ShaneLarkin plans to be ready to roll when the Mavs open training camp. Great news.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) September 16, 2013 The Mavs took Larkin with the No. 18-overall pick out of the University of Miami. He’s a smaller point guard that possesses good speed and an ability to get to the basket. While he’s a nice prospect that could develop into a solid rotation player at the point, Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talkdoesn’t expect the rookie to see much action during the 2013-14 campaign.At this point, Dallas is heavy at the point guard position. Jose Calderon figures to be the starter, and he’s backed up by solid reserve Devin Harris. Rookie Gal Mekel is also in the mix, and he’s coming off a strong showing at Summer League. Larkin would appear to be behind the trio, but he should have an opportunity to fight for minutes with word that he’ll start training camp healthy.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
