SAN ANTONIO — The Dallas Mavericks will be without Dirk Nowitzki tonight against the San Antonio Spurs and as if the situation isn’t dire enough, Dallas could be down another starter. Center Tyson Chandler is under the weather and missed the morning shootaround.

Asked if Chandler will be able to play, coach Rick Carlisle said, “Hopefully.”

Chandler was having a difficult time speaking after Thursday’s practice because his voice was going hoarse. Later Thursday night he took to his Twitter account to ask for advice on what to take when you lose your voice.
