Poku isn’t in OKC’s planned rotation tonight.
Daigneault: “It’s been up and down for him. Right now the most important thing is that he’s working … I still think he’s a much better player right now than when he got here, but we’re gonna have to help him work through this.” – 8:10 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Jason Kidd talked before tonight’s game about some Mavs guards often asking him for advice or picking his brain about certain situations.
But not Luka, he joked.
“Picasso, you make sure the paints are there and the brushes are clean and let him go.” – 7:40 PM

Notes from Jason Kidd before Mavs-OKC:
— KP “looks good [and] his spirit is good” to “hopefully” return “soon” from bone bruise.
— THJ is flying back now from surgery in Indy yesterday.
— Mavs already canceled practice tomorrow bc of weather: “Basketball school is closed.” – 7:26 PM
Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Mark Daigneault says he takes the cues from the other coaches on if they want to talk or not he says he doesn’t feel like he is in a position to just say “hey Pop, come on over. I’m just coaching the Thunder.” “Head down” he described – 7:25 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Truly appreciate @TermineRadio, @eddie_johnson7 and @Sirius XM NBA for having me on today to discuss the James Harden trade, the Seattle SuperSonics and Kevin Durant leaving for Golden State.
Would love to come back on sometime to talk about the Thunder rebuild! – 7:08 PM
Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
Sterling Brown (left foot soreness), Tim Hardaway Jr. (left foot surgery) and Kristaps Porzingis (right knee bone bruise) will all miss tonight’s game against the Thunder. – 6:56 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Ice-cold night outside. Hopefully it’ll be a little warmer inside American Airlines Center as Mavs take on the Thunder. We’ll bring you the in-game nuggets. OKC without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Mavs without Kristaps Porzingis, Sterling Brown and Tim Hardaway Jr. – 6:38 PM
