Powell will start Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. The 29-year-old came off the bench the past five games but will rejoin the lineup Wednesday. Powell has averaged 7.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.2 minutes over 16 starts this season.
Powell was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies for a foul against Brandon Clarke, Eddie Sefko of the Mavericks' official site reports. Powell will end the game with two points (1-1 FG), two assists and one rebound in 11 minutes. The league will presumably review the play to see if it warrants a suspension for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
Powell had 12 points (6-8 FG), nine boards, four assists, one steal and four blocks in Sunday's win over the Cavaliers. The game was out of hand midway through the third quarter, so Powell was able to play a team-high 27 points off the bench. He scored in double figures for the fourth time in six games and established a new season high in blocks. Over the last five games, Powell has racked up 11 swats.
Powell played 27 minutes off the bench and recorded 12 points (4-4 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal Thursday in the 113-109 victory over the Nets. Over Powell's last 10 games, he had started the first eight and failed to grab double-digit rebounds before moving back to a reserve role in his last two outings and collecting 10 rebounds in both instances. Powell has also contributed six blocks and six steals in his last three performances.
Powell tallied seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 127-113 win over the Heat. The 29-year-old returned to the bench after receiving eight consecutive starts but still managed to produce a useful fantasy line while playing more minutes than starter Willie Cauley-Stein. Powell has been solid over his past three games, averaging 10.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.7 blocks in that span. He doesn't need a ton of minutes to produce, so fantasy managers in deeper leagues in need of low-end points, rebounds and defensive stats could do worse than the seventh-year forward out of Stanford.
