Guys, this injury looks very ugly. We might not have him back for the playoffs. The first round anyways. He is a big defensive stud for us. We need him.

With the playoffs a sure thing, hopefully he can just sit on IR until then.

Im confused, the DMN says that Buckner is listed day-to-day, while the espn recap has him out indefintely. I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow for a more accurate update. We play Atlanta on Thursday and Utah on Saturday, I believe. I think we can afford to sit Buckner for those games, at least. That should give him some rest, if it's not as serious as we're all thinking.

Looks like Buck will be out 4-6 weeks i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif

Buck is my favorite Mav......So I hope he will get back soon....We are going to need a defender.....Especially if we face LA in the 1st round....I'd like to see Buck guard Kobe some....

unfortunately the refs won't allow Buck to breathe on Kobe...
