  • Matthews managed four points (2-12 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks across 34 minutes during Saturday's 94-86 loss to the Raptors. Matthews continues to struggle from the field while recovering from hip and calf injuries, though has totaled a solid 18 rebounds, 18 assists, six steals and three blocks over his past four contests. Fantasy owners in year-long formats will have to decide whether or not his total statistical production is worth his massive dip in scoring, while DFS players are faced with the decision on whether or not to roster him while his price declines, hoping for a bounce back game.

  • Matthews managed five points (1-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during Thursday's 97-95 victory over the Clippers. Matthews has completely fallen off the map over the past 13 games, averaging 8.2 points across 31.5 minutes per game while shooting just 30.5 percent from the field and 27.9 percent from beyond the arc. He's been dealing with hip and calf injuries over that period, so his poor shooting could be attributed to a lack of lift. Regardless, he's performing poorly by anyone's standards. He could be worth dropping for a hotter shooter if there's one available, considering most year-long fantasy leagues are in their playoffs, where wins in the short term take priority.

  • Matthews finished with 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 111-104 win over the Nets. Matthews struggled in Friday's return to the lineup following a one-game absence due to a calf injury, managing just three points (on one-of-eight from the field). He has been in a bit of a funk lately, scoring less than 10 points in eight of his last 11 appearances. Nevertheless, Matthews was in a groove for most of February, and the veteran could be called upon to play heavy minutes down the stretch as the Mavericks chase the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

  • Coach Rick Carlisle said that Matthews (calf) would start Friday against the 76ers, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Matthews missed Wednesday's win over the Wizards with the right calf strain, but after he completed morning shootaround without a hitch, the team was comfortable with clearing the veteran to play. It's expected that Matthews will take back his usual starting role at small forward, resulting in Dorian Finney-Smith heading back to the bench. Given the brevity of Matthews' absence, it's not expected that he'll face any minutes limitations Friday.

  • Matthews (calf) is expected to play Friday against the 76ers, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Mavericks are still officially listing Matthews as questionable on their injury report, but it sounds as though he was present for the team's morning shootaround and is on track to play following a one-game absence due to the right calf strain. Assuming Matthews is cleared to suit up, he'd likely take back his starting role on the wing from Dorian Finney-Smith and face no minute restrictions.
