Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Will come back for 20th season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki is expected back with the Mavericks for the 2017-18 season, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Nowitzki has squashed retirement talks immediately after the regular season, agreeing to come back to the Mavericks, who hold a $25 million team option for the 38-year-old veteran. They'll be expected to exercise the option, which means Nowitzki is set to take part in his 20th NBA season. Nowitzki continues to see his numbers fall as he gets further and further into his career, with the 2016-17 season marking his lowest scoring average at 14.2 points per game since his rookie season with the Mavericks. That said, he'll still join Harrison Barnes in opening next season as arguably the team's two most important players, although another slight dip in production wouldn't be surprising.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Will be rested for season finale Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki will be held out of Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies for rest, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Nowitzki finished his final game of the season against the Nuggets on Tuesday with 21 points (9-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 27 minutes. However, with the Mavericks eliminated from playoff contention, there's no real reason to have their veteran play in the second game of a back-to-back set at the very end of the season. Nowitzki finishes his 2016-17 campaign averaging 14.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 26.4 minutes. While there's obviously going to be talk about a potential retirement, the Mavericks hold a $25 million team option on Nowitzki for next year and he appeared to have plenty of juice left in the tank.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Sees restricted minutes Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki contributed eight points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three blocks and one assist across 16 minutes in a 102-89 loss to the Spurs on Friday.

With the Mavericks eliminated from playoff contention, it looks like coach Rick Carlisle intends to take it easy on the team's main contributors down the stretch. Aside from undrafted rookie Yogi Ferrell, who has stepped in as the starting point guard with Seth Curry (shoulder) out, Nowitzki and the Mavs' other three starters all saw 18 minutes or fewer Friday. Given that Nowitzki recently got over an Achilles injury, expect his playing time to remain restricted over the final thee contests, making him an unappealing lineup option in most season-long leagues entering the last week of the season.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki (Achilles) will play in Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

The veteran big man's Achilles began acting up during Sunday's win over the Bucks, and ultimately held him out of Tuesday's tilt with the Knicks. The team may have been just exercising caution with Nowitzki, as they have officially been eliminated from playoff contention. Barring any setbacks, look for Nowitzki to take on his usual workload Wednesday.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Questionable Wednesday vs. Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki (Achilles) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Nowitzki missed Tuesday's game against the Kings with a sore Achilles that started bothering him during Sunday's game against the Bucks. While the injury isn't considered serious, the Mavericks coaching and medical staff will likely exercise caution with the veteran, as the team has officially been eliminated from playoff contention. If he's ultimately ruled out, look for Dwight Powell and Nerlens Noel to see additional run.
