After missing two games with a groin injury, Dirk Nowitzki said he will participate in the morning shootaround, and provided he has no setbacks, he will play Monday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“I feel OK,” Nowitzki said after Sunday’s workout in Phoenix. “I went through most of the stuff, a little running, a little shooting. It was pulling a little bit, but as long as it doesn’t grab on me and completely tighten up, it’s fine. Obviously, the meds had time to kick in over the weekend."
Nowitzski missed a Thursday night game against Golden State and a Friday night game against the Suns. The injury in his right adductor seemingly came out of nowhere, as Nowitzski was coming off a season-high 26 points last Tuesday against Portland.
