Dallas Mavericks back-up center Brendan Haywood will miss Sunday’s Game Three of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat with a strained right hip flexor,coach Rick Carlisle said.

Haywood,a seven-footer (2.13 m) in his 10th NBA season,has played in all 17 of the Mavericks’ playoff games,averaging 3.3 points. He has a total of five points in the two games against Miami in the finals. Ian Mahinmi,a 6-foot-11 (2.11 m) center from France who has played in only three postseason games this year,will see some action,Carlisle said.

It will change our rotation,obviously,Carlisle told reporters shortly before tip-off. (Haywood is) one of our biggest guys,we all know that. And so we have some different scenarios. Mahinmi will most likely play some minutes. And then there’s a possibility we could look at some other lineups that would be obviously smaller. But we’re going to have to adjust. The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1.
