DALLAS (AP) _ Forward Eduardo Najera and center Evan Eschmeyer were activated from the injured list by the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.
To make room on the roster, Dallas placed forward Popeye Jones (right ankle sprain) and Avery Johnson (right calf strain) on the injured list.
Najera, one of the Mavericks' best defenders, has been out since arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Dec. 5. He averaged 8.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 25.4 minutes in 15 games this year.
Eschmeyer played in two games before arthroscopic surgery in November, getting five points and three rebounds in 19 minutes.
