After taking the first month of the season off, it appears that Derek Fisher will make his return to the NBA soon.

The Mavericks will be the veteran point guard’s fifth team of his 17-year NBA career. Fisher averaged almost 6 points and 3 assists last season in 63 games split between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder.

With Darren Collison now injured, Fisher may be counted on to play big minutes for the Mavericks in the near future. He will certainly give the team veteran leadership, but whether or not he can produce on the court remains to be seen.
