Mavericks Waive Derek Fisher At His Request!!

With Derek Fisher gone, the Mavericks will turn to Douglas-Roberts | Dallas Mavericks Blog

"The Mavericks have waived point guard Derek Fisher, who suffered a knee injury last week.

Update: The move came at Fisher's request as he has released the following statement via Twitter:

The Mavericks also are expected to make a move to fill Fisher's spot on the roster.

Fisher's statement:

"In Tuesday's game against Philadelphia, I suffered an injury to my patellar tendon. The recovery time will be approximately two weeks. With this news and the difficulty I have been having being away from my family, I have asked the organization to waive me so I can return home.

"(Mavericks owner) Mark Cuban has been extremely supportive and has granted me this request. I cannot say enough good things about this organization. From Mark, to Coach (Rick) Carlisle, to the players on the Mavericks' team, I sincerely thank them for the opportunity."
Go Spurs Go!
