Mavericks’ Shane Larkin Returns To Practice

shane_larkin_2013Dallas Mavericks first-round pick Shane Larkin practiced Monday for the first time since breaking his right ankle this summer.

Larkin, a point guard out of Miami who was selected with the 18th overall pick, needed surgery after breaking the ankle in the Mavs’ summer league team’s final practice before leaving for Las Vegas.

There isn’t a firm timetable for when Larkin will start playing games.

“I felt good out there,” Larkin said. “I don’t have my quickness back yet, but that’ll come in the next couple of practices. Hopefully within the next couple of weeks — a week, week and a half, I’ll be back being able to play.”
