Barring a last-minute, unforeseen setback, Brandan Wright will make his season debut for the Dallas Mavericks Saturday night when they host the Milwaukee Bucks at American Airlines Center.

Wright has been sidelined since suffering a small fracture of his left shoulder during an Oct. 8 practice. The 6-foot-10, 210-pound center officially listed himself as a game-time decision for Saturday, but sounded as if he’s leaning more toward playing.

“I should be ready to go if all goes well,” Wright said after Friday’s practice. “I’m not 100 percent for sure, but it should be good.

“I’ve just got to go through [Saturday] and feel fine. That’s what it comes down to.”

Wright signed a two-year, $10 million free agent contract with the Mavs last summer. The Mavs sorely need Wright’s shot-blocking, defense and athletic ability at a position that has become the team’s least productive.

“I’m feeling good, the body feels good, I’m moving well, I’m jumping high, so it’s all good things,” Wright said. “I had a good week of practice the last four or five days.

“Overall, I really didn’t lose any strength. The shoulder obviously lost strength, but we’ve been working hard for the last five to six weeks to try to get that back and build it up, and we’re going to continue to build it throughout the whole season.’’
