Dallas Mavericks big man Maxi Kleber is out for an indefinite amount of time after suffering a torn hamstring. According to the team, he suffered the injury during practice on Tuesday. He and the team are currently considering treatment options and have not decided on the course of action they will take. Kleber is a key player in the Mavericks’ rotation who signed a three-year extension this past offseason worth $33 million. This could set the team back while they are without him. There is no word if this injury will or could end his season.
