LAS VEGAS -- OK, let's clear this up first...Roddy Beaubois hurt his right ankle, he said high up on the ankle, but it doesn't appear to be serious. He thinks he will play in the Mavs' final Summer League game on Sunday.
That explains why Beaubois was limited to less than 16 minutes in a game in which he picked up five fouls in nine minutes of action and just wasn't himself throughout. He hurt the ankle in the first half and after starting the second half, Mavs head coach Monte Mathis saw Beaubois limping and decided not to take any risks.
Beaubois had the ankle wrapped in ice after the game and he grimaced a bit as he conducted interviews. Still, he said, he's not terribly pleased with his inconsistent play through four games this summer.
