McRoberts was waived by the Mavericks on Saturday, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports. McRoberts was never a part of the Mavericks' rotation, as the veteran has only played in two games this season after arriving in Dallas via trade with the Heat this past summer. He'll now have a chance to sign on with another squad in need of veteran depth.
McRoberts was a DNP-CD in Sunday's win over the Thunder. McRoberts was available off the bench for the first time this season after battling a lower-body injury for several months, but he did not see the floor in the Mavs' three-point victory. The former Duke standout could work his way into a rotational role over the next few weeks, but McRoberts is very unlikely to be a significant fantasy contributor this season.
Contrary to an earlier report, coach Rick Carlisle confirmed McRoberts (lower body) will be available to play Sunday against the Thunder, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. While he was initially ruled out for Sunday's tilt earlier in the day, it turns out McRoberts, who has been sidelined all year with a lower body injury, is feeling well enough to make his season debut. That said, he figures to be on some sort of minutes limit, though he isn't expected to play a large role of the Macs' bench regardless.
McRoberts (lower body) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. McRoberts has yet to see the floor this season while working through a lower body injury, but finally appears to be nearing a his return. The Mavericks reported there was an "outside chance" that McRoberts could play Sunday, though they'll hold him out one more contest in order to avoid bringing the big man back too soon and risking some sort of setback. McRoberts' next opportunity to take the floor will be Wednesday against the Warriors.
McRoberts (lower body) will remain out Friday against the Pelicans, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports. McRoberts continues to sit out with what the team is calling a lower-body injury. He's yet to be activated this season, and at this point it's very much unclear when the former Duke standout could make his season debut. That said, the Mavs appear content to handle his status on a game-to-game basis.
