Chris Kaman won't make trip with Mavs

DALLAS -- Center Chris Kaman will not travel with the Mavericks to Wichita for Wednesday's preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

It will be the third consecutive game Kaman misses due to a strained right calf.

The center said Monday night that he is "pretty sure" he will be ready to play in the season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers but could not guarantee anything.
