Rodrigue Beaubois to undergo foot surgery. Again.

Jun 27, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT


One reason the Dallas Mavericks could repeat as champions — they should get their two most dynamic wing players back from injury next season. Caron Butler is one.

Rodrigue Beaubois is the other — but not until he has another foot surgery, according (a French sports site).

Beaubois missed most of last season after injuring his foot before the season and needing to have surgery. Even when he did return he was not the same player he had been as a rookie and barely saw the floor, not even logging a minute during the NBA finals.

This second surgery is expected to have him out two to three months, which means he would be back for training camps even in training camps open on time because Billy Hunter and David Stern came to their senses. He would be part of the Mavs from the start this time.

Of course, if you’re a Mavs fan who wants to be skeptical about that timeline, we can’t blame you. But if they can get Beaubois back for next season and healthy, he is the kind of change-of-tempo guard off the bench the Mavs could really use.

    Im a Wiz fan so I was mad to see Caron leave DC, but he is a true pro and a very good player. I can’t believe how far Dallas made it without him, with his ability to create his own shot and his all-around game they should be good for next year as well.

    Not sold on the Roddy hype but he has a lot of potential. Unfortunately he looks to be having more problems with the same injured foot. We’ll see if he can get his old form back but it doesn’t look too good
