  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Dealing with injury

    Ntilikina won't play for France at EuroBasket in September due to an undisclosed injury, Eurohoops.net reports.

    The details regarding Ntilikina's injury remain unclear, but it sounds like he's expected to remain sidelined until mid-September as he works to recover ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season. While he'll miss the upcoming EuroBasket competition, the injury doesn't sound like it will prevent him from being available when the Mavericks begin their 2022 campaign in the fall.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Sees garbage-time run in Game 2

    Ntilikina logged three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and an assist in five minutes of court time Wednesday in the Mavericks' 129-109 loss to the Suns in Game 2 of the series.

    Ntilikina was sidelined for a good portion of the Mavericks' six-game series victory over the Jazz in the first round, but he's been available for the first two contests of the Western Conference quarterfinals round. He appeared off the bench in Games 1 and 2, but head coach Jason Kidd didn't call Ntilikina's number until the outcome was decided. Ntilikina didn't check into Wednesday's game until the Suns built a 21-point lead with 4:41 remaining in the fourth quarter.

    Ntilikina (ankle) is available for Friday's game in Washington.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Ruled out against Cleveland

    Ntilikina (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Efficient from bench

    Ntilikina produced 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 110-91 win over the Rockets.

    Ntilikina shifted up in the rotation due to Luka Doncic's (ankle) absence and saw more than 20 minutes of action for the second time in three games. He's not fantasy-viable at this point due to low shot volume and a lack of playing time.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Gets garbage-time run Saturday

    Ntilikina racked up 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one block over 23 minutes during Saturday's 129-108 loss to the Hornets.

    With the Mavericks down by more than 20 points heading into the fourth quarter, coach Jason Kidd emptied his bench and Ntilikina wound up seeing his biggest workload since late December, scoring in double digits for the first time since Christmas. Barring another rash of injuries to the Dallas backcourt, the 23-year-old will remain a fantasy afterthought most nights.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Good to go Friday

    Ntilikina (illness) is available for Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Ntilikina may see an uptick in workload given the absence of Jalen Brunson (thigh), though it remains to be seen how Ntilikina's wind is after being sick. In his past 10 appearances, he's averaged 3.0 points in 10.4 minutes.

  • Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Upgraded to questionable

    Ntilikina (illness) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game in Houston.

    Ntilikina has missed back-to-back games due to an illness, but he has a chance to return Friday. With Jalen Brunson (thigh) ruled out, Ntilikina's potential availability should provide Dallas with much needed backcourt depth.
