Wesley Matthews, Chandler Parsons and JaVale McGee are all still recovering from injuries that ended their seasons last year, and all three are not cleared for training camp, according to Tim MacMahon at

“Three players who are anticipated to play key roles for the Dallas Mavericks will not be fully cleared to begin training camp next week, according to sources. 

Shooting guard Wesley Matthews, small forward Chandler Parsons and centerJaVale McGee are all expected to gradually work into full participation in practices as they continue to recover from major injuries. Matthews and Parsons, the Mavs’ high-priced starting wing duo, have both said that they are hopeful they will be able to play in Dallas’ Oct. 28 season opener.”
