Dallas Mavericks center Chris Kaman is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion during Monday's practice, reports the Star-Telegram's Dwain Price.

Kaman is suffering from headaches and dizziness, Price wrote. The center described how the injury occurred:

"I just got undercut in practice and landed on my head," Kaman said. "It was a weird play. (Jae) Crowder drove down the middle, Elton (Brand) tried to take a charge, and Elton slid to his left and took my leg out.

"I tried to block it and I was three feet in the air on my side and didn't know where to go. Obviously it all happened real fast.''

The 30-year-old Kaman has started 33 games for Dallas this season, his first with the franchise. He is averaging 12.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. The Mavericks are 19-26 this season.
