Interim coach Brian Hill expects Charlie Villanueva (hamstring) to play Friday against the Mavericks.
Villanueva warmed up before Wednesday's game against the Knicks but was ultimately unable to play. Greg Monroe (ankle) is also expected to play Friday, but the two are being called game-time decisions. Jonas Jerekbo had 12 points and four rebounds as a starter Friday, but would likely return to a timeshare with Villanueva once he's healthy. Check back after tomorrow's shootaround for confirmation on Villanueva's status.
