DALLAS -- The Mavericks recalled Gal Mekel from the D-League after the rookie point guard spent three games playing for the Texas Legends on a rehab stint.

Mekel averaged 9.3 points, 6.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game for the Legends, but he shot only 34.4 percent from the floor during his time in the D-League.

The 26-year-old Mekel has averaged 2.4 points and 2.1 assists in 9.6 minutes per game during his 30 appearances for the Mavs, shooting only 34.5 percent from the floor.

Mekel hasn’t played for the Mavs since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-January. He’s unlikely to get much playing time the rest of the season, as he’s buried beneath Jose Calderon, Devin Harris and Shane Larkin on the depth chart at point guard.
