Rodrigue Beaubois only Mav out vs. Rockets
Beaubois has been sidelined since suffering a sprained ankle in the Mavs' preseason opener against Alba Berlin.
O.J. Mayo will play despite a cut on his shooting hand suffered during a freak accident in Barcelona. He was 0-for-7 from the floor against FC Barcelona Regal, a poor shooting night Carlisle attributed to the cut. Mayo did not participate in the Mavs' instrasquad scrimmage Saturday.
The Mavs are still optimistic that the swelling will not return to Dirk Nowitzki's right knee, which caused him to sit out last week's game in Barcelona. If the swelling does return, Nowitzki could have to undergo arthroscopic surgery.
