The Dallas Mavericks had 2 players that were late arriving to the bubble in Orlando. Trey Burke was slowed since he signed as a replacement gamer after Willie Cauley-Stein opted out. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist did not take a trip with the group due to the fact that he was attending to a family matter.

Both players are in Orlando and have passed quarantine. Neither has played in the Mavs initially 2 scrimmages, though. Both players are working their way into shape after late starts.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle gave fans an upgrade on the status of both men heading into the team’s last scrimmage against the Philadelphia 76ers on July 28. Let us take a closer look.

Carlisle began his question and answer session with media on Monday by saying that both Burke and MKG practiced. He was later asked a follow up about the two gamers. See Carlisle’s quote listed below.

” Burke is going to play (against the Sixers) unless he has some type of concern coming off of today’s practice. MKG will not play tomorrow. He’s even more far from game action.”

Carlisle went on to state Burke is in “actually excellent shape”. Fans are thrilled to see him back on the flooring. Burke finished last season with the Mavericks. He played 25 video games with the Sixers earlier this year before being waived in February. Expect the 27-year-old guard to be searching for a little bit of revenge in Tuesday’s skirmish.

It sounds as if Kidd-Gilchrist will miss out on a minimum of the first seeding game too. Remember, the opener is on Friday versus the Houston Firecrackers.

Be sure to tune in on July 28 to see what Trey Burke can do in his very first game with the Dallas Mavericks. The Cigarette smoking Cuban will continue to provide fans with updates on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s status plus everything they require to understand about their favorite group from the season’s reboot, so stay tuned.
