Mavericks F Maxi Kleber (shoulder) out at least 3 weeks

Maxi Kleber

Dallas Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber will be sidelined at least three weeks after sustaining an AC joint separation to his right shoulder, the team announced Sunday.

An MRI revealed the severity of the injury.

Kleber was hurt early in the second quarter of the Mavericks’ 114-101 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round series. He was driving toward the hoop and landed awkwardly after being fouled by Amir Coffey.

Kleber scored four points before exiting as he managed to make one of two free throws immediately after the injury. In Game 5, Kleber scored 15 points on five 3-pointers and averaged 5.7 points in the series for the Mavericks, who will play Game 1 of their conference semifinal series at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.

In the regular season, the 32-year-old from Germany averaged 4.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 43 games (seven starts).

Overall, Kleber has averages of 6.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 406 games (147 starts) over seven NBA seasons, all with Dallas. He has made 477 career 3-pointers while shooting 35.7 percent from long range.
