Mavericks’ Wood to miss multiple games with broken thumb

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Mavericks forward Christian Wood will miss multiple games with a broken left thumb. The team says the injury to Wood’s non-shooting hand occurred during the Mavericks’ 130-122 loss to Atlanta on Wednesday night. He will be re-evaluated next week. Wood winced in pain while holding the thumb at one point during the game but stayed in. The Mavericks have been dealing for weeks with injuries to several key defensive players. Now they will be without the No. 2 scorer behind NBA scoring leader Luka Doncic.
