Dallas F Brand misses game against Raptors
The short-handed Mavericks were also without forward Shawn Marion, who is expected to miss at least three games after leaving Monday night's game against Portland with a sprained left knee ligament. All-Star Dirk Nowitzki is still recovering from surgery and hasn't played this season.
Chris Kaman is expected to start in Brand's place and rookie Jae Crowder will fill in for Marion. Brand is averaging 5.8 points and 6.3 rebounds in four games this season.
