  • Lakers' Christian Wood: Catches on with Lakers

    Wood agreed Tuesday with the Lakers on a two-year, $5.7 million contract that includes a player option for the 2024-25 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports

    Wood was one of the top remaining free agents on the market and will join a Lakers team looking to build off of an appearance in the Western Conference Finals. Over 67 appearances with the Mavericks a season ago, the 27-year-old big man averaged 16.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 26.0 minutes per contest. Wood saw his role with Dallas decline down the stretch, and though he's been a strong fantasy producer on a per-minute basis, his limitations on the defensive end could relegate him to a backup role at center behind Anthony Davis. The Lakers could at least give Wood a chance to compete for a starting gig if head coach Darvin Ham is willing to deploy Davis at power forward, but if not, Rui Hachimura and Jarred Vanderbilt may be more realistic options to form a starting frontcourt tandem with Davis.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Available for season finale

    Wood is not on the injury report for the season finale Sunday against the Spurs.

    The Mavericks will rest several starters for the season finale, but Wood won't be one of them, and it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up operating as one of the focal points on offense in a game the team has nothing to play for. Wood is averaging 13.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game since the beginning of March.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Won't play Friday

    Wood has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls due to rest purposes.

    With the Mavericks a half game out of the final Play-In spot, they will surprisingly rest Wood, Kyrie Irving, Josh Green, Tim Hardaway and Maxi Kleber. Wood should be back for Dallas' regular-season finale Sunday against the Spurs, which will likely be a must-win game for the Mavericks, regardless of Friday's outcome.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Invisible again in loss

    Wood produced eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one block over 13 minutes during Saturday's 129-122 loss to the Heat.

    Wood's season continues to go from bad to worse, as he's now played fewer than 15 minutes for the third straight game. Despite Wood's promising start to the season, the Dallas coaching staff seems to have since realized his impact, or lack thereof, on the defensive end is hard to cover. While his minutes continue to remain suppressed, Wood can be dropped in the majority of formats.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Plays just 12 minutes in win

    Wood ended with six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one block across 12 minutes during Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.

    Even with Maxi Kleber (hamstring) sidelined, Wood still tied his season low with 12 minutes played. The talented forward has been held under 20 minutes in back-to-back games and has totaled just 15 points during those contests after scoring in double figures in 16 of his previous 17 appearances.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Nears double-double

    Wood closed with 20 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes during Monday's 112-108 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Wood came off the bench for a 17th straight contest, but he logged 29 minutes and finished tied for second on the Mavericks in scoring. The forward also led the team with nine rebounds and six assists, turning in a strong all-around stat line. After seeing his minutes drop mostly into the teens and low 20s through February and early March, Wood is averaging 30.3 minutes over his past three games and contributing 20.0 points, 10.3 boards, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals over that stretch.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Posts well-rounded stat line Friday

    Wood totaled 12 points (5-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt), nine rebounds, eight assists, one block and four steals across 34 minutes during Friday's 111-110 win over the Lakers.

    Wood came off the bench but trailed only Kyrie Irving (34 minutes) for the most playing time on the team. Wood didn't shoot well from the field but made his mark across multiple categories, leading Dallas in rebounds, assists and steals. His four thefts tied a season high, and the other time he reached that mark also came against the Lakers (on Christmas Day).

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Ends slide with big double-double

    Wood (foot) finished Wednesday's 137-128 overtime win over the Spurs with 28 points (8-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 10-11 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and one block across 28 minutes.

    Wood returned from a one-game absence due to a foot injury and took on a central role offensively for Dallas, though it comes with the caveat that Dallas was without both Kyrie Irving (foot) and Luka Doncic (thigh) for the third contest in a row. Irving suggested that his foot injury is worse than he initially anticipated, and while he could be trending toward another absence Friday against the Lakers, the Mavericks may have Doncic available for that contest. If that's the case, Wood likely wouldn't come close to reaching the team-high 39.9 percent usage rate he handled Wednesday, but he should still see enough playing time and touches to bring value in the points, rebounds and field-goal percentage categories. Wood will be a less palatable option once Dallas has both of its two star guards back in the fold.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Good to go Thursday

    Wood (foot) is available for Thursday's game versus the Spurs.

    Wood will return to the lineup Thursday after being upgraded from questionable to available with right foot soreness. He is averaging 12.6 points and 4.0 rebounds in 19.6 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Questionable against Spurs

    Wood (foot) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus San Antonio.

    Wood is in danger of missing his second straight game Wednesday due to right foot soreness. If the 27-year-old big man is ultimately ruled out, his next chance to suit up will be Friday's matchup with the Lakers.
