Villanueva totaled nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 15 minutes during the Mavericks' 96-91 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday. Villanueva has appeared in three of the last four games while seeing double-digit minutes in two. He has been called upon sporadically this season for his ability to drain three-pointers, but Villanueva is extremely unlikely to receive similar playing time during the Mavericks' first-round series with the Thunder.
Villanueva scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt) in a loss to the Warriors on Friday. He added five rebounds, one block and a steal. Charlie V. scored all 16 of his points in a fourth quarter flurry that helped the Mavs make a late push against the Warriors. He will likely continue to see a bump in minutes with teammate Chandler Parsons (knee) out for the season.
Villanueva recorded seven points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 13 minutes during the Mavericks' 128-101 win against the Timberwolves on Sunday. Villanueva made an appearance in six out of 10 games during the month of February. However, he averaged just five points, 2.3 rebounds, 0.6 threes, 0.4 assists, and 0.1 steals in 10 minutes per matchup. The 31-year-old forward had averaged more playing time in every other month during 2015-16, and his fantasy value is nearly non-existent at this stage of his career.
Villanueva scored a team-high 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists over 23 minutes in Friday's 116-90 loss to the Spurs. The fact that the 11-year reserve led Dallas in scoring is indicative of thetype of night it was for the Mavericks. It was the Villanueva's first double-digit scoring output since Jan. 20 against the Timberwolves, and his ninth overall on the season. While Friday's production was certainly solid, Villanueva's opportunities to reach even modest scoring totals only typically come about as a result of injury to others in front of him, or in the second half of severe blowouts.
Villanueva posted 14 points (5-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 28 minutes during the Mavericks' 106-94 win against the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Villanueva made his fourth start of the season on Wednesday, and stepped in nicely with Dirk Nowitzki (knee) receiving the night off. Nowitzki reported he is set to return on Friday, which would result in Villanueva returning to his role off the bench. He might make a decent DFS play on nights when Nowitzki sits, but otherwise Villanueva is mostly a non-factor in fantasy.
