Wright contributed 10 points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in 28 minutes during the Mavericks' 113-97 Wednesday night victory versus the Nuggets. Wright finished at a team-high plus-27 off the bench Wednesday. He had strong fantasy numbers in Memphis to close last season and is connecting on career-best percentages from the field as well as from beyond the arc this season in Dallas. Wright is a name to remember in case of future injuries or an offseason trade.
Wright recorded four points (2-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists and three steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's 111-91 win over the Timberwolves. Wright filled in as the starting point guard with Luka Doncic (thumb) sidelined, and while he struggled from the field, he turned in a very well-rounded stat line overall. It's unclear whether Doncic will remain sidelined for Monday's matchup versus the Bulls, but if so Wright would once again make for a sneaky cheap choice in daily leagues.
Wright will start at point guard Sunday against the Timberwolves. He'll move up to the top unit for the fifth time this season, replacing Luka Doncic (thumb) as the Mavericks begin the front end of a back-to-back set. Doncic could be available Monday in Chicago, but Wright should at least make for an appealing, low-cost option in DFS contests for one day while he likely take on a greater share of minutes. Over his previous four starts this season, Wright is averaging 5.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 three-pointer in 25.5 minutes.
Wright (ankle) logged 26 minutes and finished with six points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one block Wednesday in the Mavericks' 130-111 win over the Kings. Listed as probable heading into the day with the sprained right ankle, Wright was cleared to play in advance of tipoff and actually picked up his most minutes since Feb. 1, despite the fact that Dallas welcomed Luka Doncic (ankle) back from a seven-game absence. Wright was able to tick off most categories on the box score in the Mavs' final game before the All-Star break, but the overall volume was still relatively muted. Wright didn't exactly dazzle while Doncic was sidelined at the start of the month, so now that Dallas is at full strength in the backcourt, the 27-year-old can probably be safely dropped in 12-team leagues.
Wright (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Wright sprained his ankle during Monday's game against the Jazz but will play through the issue Wednesday as expected. Across six games in February, Wright is averaging 6.7 points, 5.0 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 21.8 minutes.
