Roddy Beaubois had a minor achievement Sunday afternoon. He got his shirt and suit on with only one hand. “It was tough,” he said. “I needed maybe one hour, but I did it.” Beaubois’ left hand is wrapped in a big, protective claw-like bandage after surgery on his hand near his second finger. He had a screw put in and will need four-to-six weeks to recover. But the future remains bright for the oft-injured guard. “It’s tough, but there’s nothing you can do about it,” he said. “When it happens, you just need to make sure you do everything you can to fix it. That’s what we did. I had surgery on it. I just need to take care of it and get back as quick as I can. Besides that, I can’t do a thing about it.
Admittedly, the playoffs are a long shot for the team and it would probably be the second round before Beaubois would be able to get back into action. As for his long-term future, the free-agent-to-be said he is not thinking about the summer. “Right now, I don’t think about it,” he said. “Even though I cannot play right now, I still really want us to make the playoffs. So I’m going to be around the guys and do everything I can to help them make the playoffs. And when the season is over, then I’ll think about the summer.”

Backup guard Roddy Beaubois could be done for the season after suffering a broken bone in his hand during the first half against the Thunder. The fourth-year player suffered a broken second metacarpal on his left hand. “I don’t know what to say,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “I feel very bad for him. He had been putting the work in and obviously was playing well and this was a game where we needed him. He’s had some bad luck with injuries. “I just hope he can get back, but I don’t know if he’s going to be able to this year or not.”

Have you already got in mind who you want back here next year? Rick Carlisle: I’ve got an idea, but there’s a lot to be determined. For example, Beaubois has been in and out of this year. But he’s had some good days in practice recently, in shootaround he was real energetic this morning. I take not of that, and if there’s an opportunity to play him in an upcoming game in some meaningful minutes, I’m not going to hesitate. He’s showing me that he’s ready. There have been other guys who have done that too. Brandan Wright got back into it with that sort or daily approach.
Beaubois said he had mixed emotions when he heard his name mentioned in trade talks last month. “Usually at that time, you’re kind of anxious,” he said. “There’s nothing you can do about it.” Beaubois becomes a free agent on July 1 and knows he hasn’t lived up to his reputation in his nearly four years with the Mavs. Whether he will be with the Mavs beyond this season is anybody’s guess. “Right now I just don’t think about it,” Beaubois said. “The season is not finished yet, so I just need to make sure I keep working and get better.”
Rodrigue Beaubois’ health has become a concern for the Dallas Mavericks. From injuries to his foot, ankle and hand, Beaubois has run the gamut on being gimpy and unable to give 100 percent on the court. It has become a regular occurrence for the fourth-year guard, who currently wears a brace on his left ankle. “I’ve been really concerned about his health, to be completely frank about it,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He’s the guy that if he’s five percent off in his athleticism and his quickness, it’s going to affect his game and it’s going to affect guys around him. “Right now we are going to need him to play in some situations. But if he’s not playing that much we encourage him to spend more time on rehab strengthening and those kinds of things.”
