Wesley Matthews out for the year with fractured right fibula

If the Mavericks hadn't completely turned their focus to the draft before, they certainly have now as guard Wesley Matthews will miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his right fibula, head coach Rick Carlise said Tuesday (AEDT) ( via The Dallas Morning News ).

Matthews sustained the injury in Saturday's win over the Memphis Grizzlies and underwent further testing on Monday.

The Mavericks are in the running for one of the worse records in the league, already eliminated from playoff contention with a futile 21-46 record, having gone 3-7 in their last 10 games.

An MRI on Tuesday revealed the stress fracture.

Matthews is averaging 23.6 FanDuel points per game this season, with 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 3-pointers per contest. Matthews' absence should mean more minutes for Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea in the backcourt alongside rookie Dennis Smith.
