Mavericks backup center Brandan Wright is out indefinitely after injuring his left shoulder in practice.

The team said he sustained a small fracture Tuesday but will not need surgery. He will be evaluated weekly and there is no timetable for his return.

The 6-10 Wright re-signed with Dallas in the offseason after averaging career highs of 8.5 points and 4.1 rebounds. He's the backup to newcomer Samuel Dalembert.
