Bernard James to miss Sunday's game

Per team officials, second-year center Bernard James is out for today’s summer league against the Charlotte Bobcats due to an illness.

After the team’s win against the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said that James should “dominate” the summer league with his defensive tenacity.

James scored two points in the team’s victory against the Kings. He struggled on offense but was a defensive anchor for the team as he pulled down a team-high nine rebounds and had three blocked shots.
