Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki will be out at least six weeks after arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

The Mavericks said surgery was performed today by a team surgeon. The 11-time All-Star is expected to resume on-court activities in about six weeks.

The 34-year-old German has missed the past three preseason games with fluid buildup in the knee.

The 2001 NBA Finals MVP had knee trouble early last season as well, eventually sitting out four games before playing the rest of the season without significant trouble.

What do you make of LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland?

It's a good call and makes perfect sense. He's an Ohio boy

He should have stuck with the Miami Heat

Who cares? I'm all about the Breakers

Cavs fans will never forgive him for leaving them the first time
