DALLAS (AP) -- Dallas Mavericks starting center Brendan Haywood is out again.
Haywood is expected to miss at least five games with a sprained right knee, which he sustained midway through the third quarter Thursday night against Charlotte.
The Mavericks on Friday recalled forward Sean Williams from the Texas Legends of the NBA D-League.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Haywood's injury isn't considered serious, but needs some time to heal. Haywood played in just two games after returning from a sprained left ankle that forced him out of four games.
The 6-foot-10 Williams has averaged 4.1 points in his seven games for Dallas this season. When Haywood had returned Tuesday, Williams was reassigned to the Legends, where he has averaged 14.7 points and 8.5 rebounds games this season.

Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson didn't make any moves prior to Thursday's trade deadline because he says the club is in good shape to make a postseason run and positioned well to be a serious player in free agency this summer.
"We like our team," Nelson said Thursday. "We like the flexibility we have this summer. We need to get some healthy bodies...
DALLAS -- There are lazy assumptions being made regarding the Dallas Mavericks and their cap. There is inaccurate information being issued regarding the money Deron Williams can be paid if he joins the Mavs in the Summer of 2012. But there is nothing dull or unclear about the facts, or about the intentions expressed in recent hours by Deron or by Mavs GM Donnie Nelson.
SEAL OF APPROVAL
Jason Terry is in competition with the Spurs, but that doesn't mean he can't compliment his division rivals for a recent trade.
DALLAS It was natural for San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to be forced to endure questions about Dirk Nowitzki, the backbone of a Dallas Mavericks team that on Saturday was missing three starters and still beat the Southwest Division-leading Spurs won 106-99.
"Dirk gets a lot of points no matter who's guarding him,'' Popovich said. "He's an MVP...
Things haven’t been going real well for Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom this season and he’s reportedly blaming his wife (much like we did) for his struggles.
Odom hasn’t played well since being traded to the Mavs and he was even supposed to spend some time in the D-League to get his head straight. Well, a report by In Touch says Odom believes his on-court struggles are...
Lamar Odom’s unhappiness has been well-documented this season. Since the Lakers traded him to the Mavericks, Odom has not been the same. Rumors of his marital issues with Khloe Kardashian have added to the speculation that Odom is not a happy camper, and a couple of recent reports from gossip magazines and websites are adding to that speculation.

There were plenty of trade rumors concerning the Lakers prior to Thursday’s deadline, but very few, if any of them, involved Derek Fisher. That’s why it was so shocking to hear the Lakers had dealt their team leader to Houston. Even former Laker Lamar Odom, who was stunningly traded to Dallas before the season, was surprised.
“I’m a little bit surprised, but you never know...
Before the Charlotte-at-Mavs game, GM Donnie Nelson talked of ‘landing a big fish,’ of ‘having cake’ and of ‘eating it, too.’ And then Dallas feasted on Bobcat, a 101-96 win serving as a sidedish to all the Deron sugarplums that are head-dancing as the Mavs, says Nelson, ‘feel like we can contend this year and be active in the market.’ Let's serve it up in Mavs Donuts!
No matter who or how many San Antonio Spurs were on Dirk Nowitzki, or how much they pushed, prodded or swatted at the 7-foot All-Star, he kept making big plays for the Dallas Mavericks.
''He probably doesn't get enough credit for being the competitor that he is, and for being so tough-minded,'' teammate Lamar Odom said of Nowitzki. ''There's nothing...
The San Antonio Spurs have sat atop the Southwest Division all season and the way the team is playing, it is highly unlikely they will lose their grip on the division lead.
But don't tell that to Dallas Mavericks' Jason Terry.
