Mavs' Lever out for year

DALLAS -- Lafayette Lever, the veteran guard of the Dallas Mavericks, expects to miss the entire 1992-93 NBA season because of chronic knee problems.

The two-time All-Star told the Dallas Morning News 'unless something drastic happens, I will be out for the whole season.'


Knee injuries in his first two seasons with Dallas caused the 32- year-old to be sidelined for 129 of a possible 164 games. In his first eight seasons with Portland and Denver, he missed just 20 games. Lever was limited to 31 games in 1991-92.
