Mavs’ Samuel Dalembert rolls ankle against Spurs (GIF)

The Dallas Mavericks are without center DeJuan Blair after he was suspended for game five against the San Antonio Spurs, he is out serving a suspension for kicking Tiago Splitter in the face in Game Four. That means the Mavericks need Samuel Dalembert to step up, unfortunately they got a bit of a scare when Dalembert came up limping.

He left the game briefly, but got his ankle re-taped and came back into the game at the 7:48 mark. He was temporarily listed as “probable” for a return, but that didn’t last long.
