MIAMI -- Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said center Brendan Haywood will be active for Game 6.

Haywood strained his right hip flexor in the fourth quarter of Game 2. He was inactive for Games 3 and 5 and played just three minutes in Game 4. Haywood said his hip didn't feel good after playing in Game 4.

The Mavericks went with a smaller lineup and used Ian Mahinmi off the bench in Haywood's absence.

The 7-footer is averaging 3.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 18 postseason games.
