Mavs waive Derek Fisher at veteran guard's request

DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Mavericks have waived Derek Fisher, a move made at the request of the veteran guard.

The Mavericks announced the move Saturday, four days after the 38-year-old Fisher strained a tendon in his right knee in a game against Philadelphia.

Fisher, a 16-year veteran who won five championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, was a free agent when he signed with Dallas three weeks ago because of injuries and lack of depth at the point.

In nine games for Dallas, Fisher averaged 8.6 points and 3.6 assists.

Fisher released a statement Saturday saying his recovery time will be about two weeks, and that it was difficult for him to be away from his family. He said he asked to be waived so he could return home.
