DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks center Chris Kaman will not play in Monday's game against the New Orleans Hornets because of a strained calf, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle announced Monday morning.

Kaman also missed Saturday's preseason game in Atlanta because of the calf. Carlisle did not say when he expects Kaman to return.

The 7-footer received treatment on the calf this weekend as the club works to keep him healthy. Kaman, 30, has had a history of injury issues, missing 152 games in the previous five seasons. He signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Mavericks this summer.
