Dallas Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber out indefinitely due to hamstring injury, announces team


The Mavericks struck deals to acquire two big players over the summer, trading for centre JaVale McGee and inking him to a three-year deal. However, due to a hamstring injury, Maxi Kleber is out indefinitely.AgenciesMaxi Kleber, a reserve forward for The Dallas Mavericks, tore his right hamstring during practice on Tuesday and will be out for an indefinite period, the team announced on Thursday. His return has yet to set a date. He has been shooting 37 per cent from three this season. Of the team’s 28 games this year, he has participated in 22.

Kleber moved to the United States from Wurzburg, Germany, and has developed into a dependable two-way player. Even in a year when the defence has been subpar, the big man, now in his sixth season in Dallas, has proven to be the team’s lone defensive anchor.

He alternated between the starting lineup and the bench throughout his time in the NBA. He has frequently been paired with Christian Wood this season. And Kleber has consistently been a part of the team’s closing lineups even in his reserve capacity.

Coach Jason Kidd will have to think outside the box given this extended and indefinite absence. In the offseason, the Mavericks made moves to acquire two big men, trading for centre JaVale McGee and signing him to a three-year contract. McGee quickly found himself out of the regular rotation because Kidd had not consistently trusted Wood. This injury’s occurrence has come at a phase when the Mavericks are searching for consistency in their performance. With a 14-14 record, they are currently ninth in the Western Conference standings. As the NBA enters the true trade season and most players with offseason contracts become available for trade, any decisions made by the Mavericks’ front office are worth eyeing.

Which nationality does Maxi Kleber belong to?
