Steve Novak gets shot on active roster

DALLAS -- With Dominique Jones playing for the D-League's Texas Legends, Steve Novak moves onto the active roster for tonight's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Novak this season is averaging a rebound per minute. Of course, he's logged just two total minutes in one appearance against the Memphis Grizzlies on Nov. 11.

Alexis Anjinca got his shot to wear the uniform last Friday at San Antonio when Brendan Haywood was suspended for the game. But, with Haywood, Tyson Chandler and Ian Mahinmi all suiting up, the Mavs went with the long-range shooter.
