DALLAS (AP) - Dallas Mavericks forward Dwight Powell will miss the rest of the season with a torn right Achilles tendon. It's a blow to a team contending for a playoff spot for the first time in four years. The club confirmed  the diagnosis it had feared after Powell was injured in the first quarter of a 110-107 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Powell is exploring his options on surgery. The 28-year-old Powell went down with a non-contact injury with 2:57 left in the first quarter Tuesday night.
