    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Returns from Achilles injury with another double-double

    Pachulia (leg) scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 FT) while adding 12 rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Friday's win over the Nets. After missing three games with an Achilles strain, Pachulia picked right back up where he left off and notched his 21st double-double of the season, tying his previous career high set way back in '05-'06 with the Hawks. He's had trouble staying healthy in recent years, but if the 31-year-old can stay on the court he's headed for a career season.

    Pachulia (leg) has been cleared to play and is probable for Friday's contest against the Nets, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports Pachulia said he will be on the court Friday night after missing the previous three games with a sore right Achilles. An official announcement about his status should come later in the day as tip approaches. He could see his minutes slightly monitored due to the injury and may come off the bench. If that is the case, look for Salah Mejri to see more action than normal.

    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Hopeful to play Friday

    Coach Rick Carlisle is hopeful that Pachulia (leg) will be able to play Friday against the Nets, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Lower right leg soreness has prevented Pachulia from starting each of the last three games, paving the way for lightly-used rookie Salah Mejri to step into a starter's role. Mejri has generally acquitted himself well and should continue to serve as the starter for the duration of Pachulia's absence, but the Mavericks seem optimistic the 31-year-old will be back in the fold in short order. Look for the team to provide an update on Pachulia's condition following Friday's morning shootaround.

    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Considered doubtful Wednesday

    Pachulia (leg) is considered doubtful to play Wednesday against Golden State, Tim Macmahon of ESPN reports. Pachulia has missed the last two games with pain in his right Achilles tendon, and at this point it appears likely that he's headed for a third straight absence. In Pachulia's absence Tuesday night, the Mavs went with Salah Mejri at center, and that could again be the case Wednesday. Mejri finished with nine points in 23 minutes, while Dwight Powell (10 minutes) and JaVale McGee (10 minutes) each saw smaller roles off the bench.

    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Doubtful for Tuesday's contest

    Pachulia (leg) has been listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Lakers, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. Pachulia missed Sunday's game against the Rockets due to his leg injury and now appears likely to miss a second game. That being said, it doesn't appear like the injury is too serious, and he shouldn't miss too much more time. If he is unable to play on Tuesday his next chance to return will be Wednesday against the Warriors. Look for JaVale McGee and Dwight Powell to see extra time in Pachulia's absence.

    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Ruled out Sunday

    Pachulia (leg) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Pachulia has dealt with both a left Achilles injury, as well as a lower right leg injury recently, so he'll receive the night of Sunday in order for further recovery. JaVale McGee started in Pachulia's place earlier in January when he missed time with an injury, so the Mavericks could opt to go that route again Sunday. Otherwise, Dwight Powell is another candidate to take his spot in the starting lineup. With that being said, both McGee and Powell could be in line for increased minutes.

    Mavericks' Zaza Pachulia: Questionable to play Sunday

    Pachulia is questionable to play Sunday versus the Rockets due to issues with his lower right leg, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. He only played 25 minutes in Friday's matchup with the Thunder, when his normal workload in in the lower 30 minute range. This right leg injury could be an explanation for that. If Pachulia cannot go, Javale McGee, Dwight Powell, and even Salah Mejri could see work in the Mavericks rotation. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off Sunday.
