News: Coach Rick Carlisle said Monday that he hopes to slightly reduce Nowitzki's minutes this season. "I'd like to continue to work [Dirk's] minutes gradually down," Carlisle said. "I think we can find a way to get him from 32 minutes to 31 or 29." Impact: The 36-year-old Nowitzki has played at least 31.0 minutes per game in every season since his rookie year of 1998-99. Carlisle has held him to around 33 minutes per game over the last few years - down from his career average of 35.9 - and with added firepower this season, the hope is that Nowitzki can get more rest on a nightly basis. The idea sounds great, in principle, but how often the Mavs are able to rest Nowitzki will depend largely upon the development of Chandler Parsons, as well as the consistency of Monta Ellis.(RotoWire, )
