Dirk Nowitzki hasn't reached a final decision yet, but he is leaning towards continuing his playing career in 18-19.

“I’m not going to say 100 percent I’ll be back -- but it’s looking like it,” Nowitzki said on Thursday. “I feel fine so far. I’ve played every game. I’d love to play all 82. That would be amazing at [age] 39. We’ll see how the body feels. But so far, it’s been fine.”

Nowitzki has been reluctant to speculate on his playing status beyond this season.

Nowitzki signed a two-year contract in July for $5 million per season, with the 2018-19 season at the team’s option.

Nowitzki knew the Mavericks would be rebuilding this season.
