Tyson Chandler needs 'about a week'
"It will be all right," Chandler said after the game. "It'll probably take about a week to heal."
If that's the case, it leaves Chandler's status for the season opener in question.
Chandler suffered the injury trying to block a layup by Orlando's Dwight Howard just before halftime of the Magic's 101-76 victory -- their 21st straight in the preseason.
The Mavericks also may be without shooting guard Roddy Beaubois for the opener. The second-year player is still recovering after having surgery for a broken left foot suffered in early August while working out with the French national team in preparation for the FIBA World Championships.
