Roddy Buckets breaks foot

Mavericks point guard Rodrigue Beaubois suffered a broken bone in his left foot while training with the French national team. Mavs president Donnie Nelson on Friday confirmed the initial report by the French newspaper L'Equipe.

Beaubois reportedly could miss up to three months if surgery is required to repair the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot. Nelson said the Mavs hope it is a hairline fracture and gave no timetable for his return. The NBA season begins in late October, which would put Beaubois in danger of missing the first part of the season.

Beaubois, who averaged 7.1 points last season, is flying back to Dallas to be evaluated by team doctors.

The Mavericks have worked all summer with Beaubois on leadership, on holding the team together and keeping his poise even if things don't go well when it comes to shooting the ball. However, Beaubois struggled at times during NBA Summer League play.

Beaubois has all sorts of opportunities in front of him. Coach Rick Carlisle has said he wouldn't be surprised if Beaubois was in the starting lineup next season. Jason Kidd said he would consider playing off the bench to get Beaubois more minutes.

However, just because he finished strong in his rookie season, there are no guarantees of success moving forward, especially now with an injury.
