Samuel Dalembert missed the Dallas Mavericks' shootaround Monday morning when he overslept and Carlisle used both DeJuan Blair as the starter and Bernard James as the backup center before putting Dalembert in the game at the start of the second quarter. Dalembert was apologetic about the situation. "I'm very disappointed at myself," he said. "I let my teammates down. I don't have an excuse. And it shouldn't have happened. I'm still trying to get over it. I'm very upset. I overslept. Just saying it (makes me mad). I shouldn't be in that situation. And I deserved what I got. The decision coach made, I'm behind it. And I apologized to my teammates." Said Carlisle: "Sam missed shootaround this morning because he overslept. So the two guys that were there got the first two rotations." Dallas Morning News

Nobody’s quite sure how long Brandan Wright’s recovery from a shoulder fracture will take, but coach Rick Carlisle is certain of one thing. The next man up will have to do the job. Namely, DeJuan Blair, along with Bernard James and Samuel Dalembert. “If it’s going to happen, this isn’t the worst time,” Carlisle said Friday. “He’s got a little time to heal. It’s going to be evaluated weekly. It could have been a lot worse. “(We’ll have to) plug other guys in. Now Blair becomes more at the forefront. Sarge has to be ready. Sam has to keep playing like he did the other night. And it gives guys like Balkman and Melo to get more minutes in the preseason.” Dallas Morning News
