Finney-Smith (hip) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports. Finney-Smith returned to action Tuesday following a two-game absence, but he's feeling some soreness after 38 minutes on the court. In his absence, plus the absence of Kristaps Porzingis (rest), Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson are strong candidates to see extra minutes.
Finney-Smith (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets. Finney-Smith returned from a two-game absence Tuesday, playing 38 minutes. However, he's apparently feeling sore and might sit out on the second night of a back-to-back. If that's the case, Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson presumably would see extra minutes, especially with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) on the shelf.
Finney-Smith (hip) played 38 minutes and finished with 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal Tuesday in the Mavericks' 119-109 loss to the Spurs. Back in action following a two-game absence due to a hip injury, Finney-Smith immediately stepped back into a starting role at power forward, bumping Maxi Kleber to the bench. Finney-Smith's ability to handle a hefty minutes load suggests the injury is firmly in the rear-view mirror, though the forward shouldn't be expected to score at this sort of rate moving forward. He's averaging 9.3 points per game on the season.
Finney-Smith will start Tuesday's game against the Spurs. After a two-game absence, Finney-Smith is back in the starting lineup, sending Maxi Kleber to the bench. Since the start of February, Finney-Smith is averaging 9.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 29.7 minutes.
Finney-Smith (hip) is available for Tuesday's game against the Spurs. Finney-Smith will make his return after missing two games with a hip injury. The 26-year-old has started in 60 of 63 games he has played this season, so Maxi Kleber could shift back to the bench Tuesday.
