Sick as a dog: No Brian Cardinal tonight
By Jeff Caplan
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Mavericks reserve forward Brian Cardinal won't be available tonight. He's back at the team hotel dealing with a second bout of stomach illness over the last couple of weeks.
Activated in his place is 7-foot, fourth-string center Alexis Ajinca.
Assistant coach Dwane Casey is at the controls tonight as Rick Carlisle watches back in Dallas recuperating from arthroscopic knee surgery.
