Dirk Nowitzki will not play tonight at 6 when the Dallas Mavericks face the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre. Nowitzki, 35, isn''t injured. The Mavs are just doing what a lot of teams do around the league with their elderly players -- they're simply resting him as a precaution. Jae Crowder will start in Nowitzki's place tonight.
Nowitzki not hurt, but won't play tonight
