Dallas Mavericks point guard Jalen Brunson is progressing in his recovery but is still months away from a return to action, according to head coach Rick Carlisle.
Carlisle said that Brunson is doing “pretty much everything” while working on strength and flexibility during his rehab. However, the strength-level in his shoulder is holding him back from playing and he is still a couple of months away from a return. Despite not being available to play, Brunson is expected to travel with the team to Orlando.
Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Dallas Mavericks (+3800) have the 11th best odds to win the NBA Championship.
