DALLAS — Veteran guard Courtney Lee will be sidelined when the Dallas Mavericks are scheduled to resume organized workouts next week.

The Mavericks said Monday night that Lee hurt his left calf during the NBA hiatus. The team said he wouldn’t be available when workouts start up again July 1, but provided no specific details about the cause or severity of the injury.

Lee became a part-time starter after Jalen Brunson injured his right shoulder. After playing in only 10 of the first 50 games for the Mavericks this season, Lee appeared in 14 of their last 17. He started five of the last six games, including a 113-97 win over Denver on March 11 in the final NBA game completed before the league put its season on hold because of the coronavirus.

Brunson got hurt Feb. 22 against Atlanta, and didn’t play again before having surgery when the season was halted.
