Powell totalled 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and a block in 23 minutes Wednesday against the Hornets. Powell got a boost in minutes due to the game being well in hand by halftime and produced an all-around line with his trademark efficiency, managing to hit multiple three-pointers for just the third time on the year. While Powell is a steady backup center, these types of performances are far to infrequent for him to be considered a viable option in standard formats.
Powell managed 16 points (7-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Monday's 101-76 victory over Orlando. Powell played well in 20 minutes off the bench Monday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Powell has had some nice games over the past few weeks but rarely sees enough playing time to warrant any sort of standard league ownership. Barring any injuries to the starting frontcourt, Powell can be left alone in most formats.
Powell totaled 12 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 132-106 loss to the Pelicans. Powell had a season-high 10 rebounds Wednesday, adding 12 points to deliver his first double-double of the campaign. Powell has provided some nice energy off the bench of late but limited playing time does mean his fantasy value is restricted to deeper formats only.
Powell pitched in seven points (2-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, and one assist in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 111-102 win over the Trail Blazers. Powell had been listed as questionable due a left knee injury but ultimately was healthy enough to play his usual load of minutes. This was the second time this season that Powell drained two threes, but that's still very much something he's trying to develop rather than a skill fantasy owners should regularly expect. Powell is capable of filling up the box score as part of the team's high-scoring bench unit, and upcoming matchups with the Pelicans and Rockets provide him with opportunities against dismal defenses.
Powell (knee) will be available Tuesday against the Blazers, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports. Powell was listed on the initial injury report with a left knee injury, but the Mavs never gave much of an indication that his status was ever truly in doubt. Expect Powell to play his usual role of roughly 15 to 20 minutes. Over his last five games, Powell is averaging 10.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
