Beaubois out indefinitely (fractured hand)

By Tim MacMahon

DALLAS -- The injury bug bit Rodrigue Beaubois once again.

Beaubois exited Sunday night's game against the Thunder after fracturing the second metacarpal in his left hand during the second quarter. He is out indefinitely.

The fourth-year guard had played his way back into Rick Carlisle's rotation with two strong performances this week. Carlisle called Beaubois' 18-point, five-assist outing in Friday's win "by far" his best game of the season.

The career of Beaubois, once considered a potential franchise cornerstone, has been marred by injuries. Most notably, his missed the majority of his second season due to a broken foot that required two operations to fix.

With Beaubois entering free agency this offseason, this injury could be the end of his time in a Mavs uniform.
