Mavericks Beaubois has hand surgery, likely done for season


The injury bug that has plagued Roddy Beaubois career has not gone away.

The Mavericks reserve point guard fractured his left hand last Thursday in a game against Oklahoma City and Wednesday had surgery to repair it, reports ESPN Dallas. The odds of him returning this season are “extremely slim” according to the report.

After a promising rookie campaign in Dallas (remember how Rick Carlisle wouldn’t play him against San Antonio in the playoffs while everyone begged him to?) Beaubois has faced a rash of injuries that have slowed him, and he never lived up to his promise because of it. This season he didn’t see a lot of playing time and averaged 4 points a game on 36.9 percent shooting.

Beaubois is an unrestricted free agent this summer. It’s unlikely Dallas brings him back.
