Nowitzki Injuried Last Night [David Stefanini]

Dirk Nowitzki was injured in the first quarter of Dallas' win over Seattle last night. Dirk suffered a sprained ankle and is listed as day-to-day. It is unclear whether the All-Star will play in Friday's game against the Clippers.
Luckily for the Mavericks and all their fans, the injury does not seem to be at all serious. Even if Dirk misses the next game, he is more than likely to miss no more than a couple of days.
In that same game, Sonics' forward Rashard Lewis was also injured in the first quarter. Lewis suffered an injured tendon in his wrist. Lewis is going to be looked at again today to see how bad the injury is. It is unclear as to how long he will be out, but it is more than likely he will miss at least a couple of game.
Injuries are the only thing that will keep the Western Conference from absolutely dominating the East all year long. With that said, I think the West could dominate the East with half of their stars.
