Mavs' starting five should be whole


DALLAS -- Point guard Jason Kidd and center Erick Dampier participated in Tuesday morning's shootaround and should play against the Bucks.

Kidd missed Sunday's rout of the Knicks because he had to return to Dallas to deal with a personal issue.

The win over the Knicks was the third game Dampier missed this month due to a left knee effusion.

"We’re doing what we can through a medical standpoint to address it and manage it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "We’re kind of day-to-day on it, but he’s making some progress and we’re trying to knock that thing out of there."
