Dallas guard Jason Terry missed the Mavericks' game against Denver on Wednesday night because of a strained right quad and is expected to miss at least one more game as well.
Dallas coach Rick Carlisle says he doesn't believe Terry's injury to be serious. The coach said the guard will miss Friday night's game at Philadelphia because of a "personal situation" and is expected to be back Sunday at New York.
The Mavericks also were without guard Rodrigue Beaubois on Wednesday night. Carlisle said Beaubois missed the game for personal reasons, but the coach wouldn't give any details on what those were.
