However, he has joined the team in Dallas and may return in the upcoming games.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 13 points, and Kristaps Porzingis - who had missed their previous 10 games with soreness in his right knee - dropped 10 points and nine rebounds in 27 minutes.

Porzingis can relate to Powell, as he came back this year after missing a season-and-a-half with a torn ACL. He scored 24 points in the second half to help rally the Mavericks after they trailed by double digits from late in the second quarter through most of the third. Montrezl Harrell added two free throws, then Shamet sunk three more directly and increased the clippers by seven.

After Powell's retirement, Dallas received 16 valuable minutes from former clipper Boban Marjanovic, who had 12 points and seven rebounds.

The 28-year-old Powell has been a tremendous rotation piece for a Mavs team that continues to raise its ceiling in the National Basketball Association playoff picture, he's an athletic, powerful center that complements stretch four Kristaps Porzingis in the team's starting lineup.

Powell went down when he started to drive toward the basket but his right leg gave out. He's great for the dressing room.

Powell has averaged 9.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this season and will be missed if the MRI confirms what the franchise is bracing for.

Dallas Mavericks suffered a major blow Tuesday after their center Dwight Powell reportedly was ruled out of the season.

Coach Rick Carlisle said the club would wait for an MRI exam to determine the extent of the injury, but said the injury was "feared to be serious". A Maryland police officer has been suspended for shooting a video that shows West as he was being questioned while shirtless and handcuffed. "He's been playing wonderful, getting everyone involved, getting to his spots, making shots and we just wanted to make it hard for him". "The hope is that he will get help".
