Rick Carlisle has surgery
DALLAS (AP) - Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has undergone minor
knee surgery and will miss the team's next game at Oklahoma City.
Mavericks spokeswoman Sarah Melton said Carlisle had
arthroscopic surgery on his left knee during a five-day Christmas
break and was told by doctors not to travel for a few days.
Assistant coach Dwane Casey will lead the team Monday night
against the Thunder. Casey was in charge for a preseason game
against Phoenix in Indian Wells, Calif., when Carlisle stayed home
after fainting at practice.
Carlisle is expected back on the bench Tuesday night at home
