Powell put up two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT) over six minutes in a 101-92 loss to the Timberwolves on Monday.
Powell's playing time has fallen by the wayside lately with Andrew Bogut and Dirk Nowitzki both suiting up in each of the past four games, with Monday's six-minute workload representing a season low for the third-year big man. Bogut did end up exiting the contest in the second half with a strained hamstring, however, so if he's forced to miss some time, Powell could reclaim some minutes. Even so, it will likely take several games in a row where Powell approaches double-double production before those in deep leagues may be eager to take a chance on him.
Powell finished with 10 points (5-7 FG), 13 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 26 minutes in a 108-99 loss to the Warriors on Friday.
The Mavericks made the final score closer than the game actually was, and that's due in large part to what Powell was able to do in the second half when coach Rick Carlisle gave frontcourt starters Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes and Dorian Finney-Smith some rest. The third-year big man claimed his first double-double of the season and hit double figures in the scoring column for a third game in a row. The Mavericks should have more depth on hand down low in their next game Tuesday against the Wizards, when Andrew Bogut, who was held out Friday for rest, is expected to play, but Powell may have nonetheless earned himself some elevated minutes off the bench in light of this outing.
Powell submitted 14 points (7-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and six rebounds across 14 minutes in a 101-89 win over the Lakers on Thursday.
It's the second straight double-digit scoring performance for Powell, but it's surprising he didn't see more run while playing effectively and steering clear of foul trouble on a night when Dirk Nowitzki (illness) was held out. The Mavericks are set to be without Andrew Bogut (rest) on Friday against the Warriors, while Nowitzki is questionable for that contest, so Powell would seemingly have a good shot at seeing his playing time expand a bit if both big men are sidelined.
Powell turned in 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, an assist and three blocks Monday in a 107-117 loss to Denver.
Powell has had one of his best months of basketball to date. He's averaging 10.2 points per game in December on 60 percent shooting. With Dirk Nowitzki out with an Achilles strain, expect the Mavs to continue to lean on Powell. If he can keep his production high, he'll earn himself minutes even when Dirk returns.
Powell tallied 14 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes in Friday's 111-103 win over the Pacers.
Though he hasn't started either of the last two games with Andrew Bogut (knee) sitting out, Powell has continued to thrive off the bench while Salah Mejri has slotted in as the starting center. Powell is averaging 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.5 minutes per game over the last four outings, all while shooting 57.1 percent from the field. Since both Bogut and Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) are slated to miss several more games, Powell could be worthy of a pickup in deeper formats where available.
