Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Returns to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein agreed Sunday with the Mavericks on a two-year, $8.2 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Cauley-Stein wasn't a primary target for Dallas in free agency, but the Mavericks became more interested in re-signing him after losing ground in the Marc Gasol sweepstakes. According to Charania, the second year of Cauley-Stein's deal is a team option, so Dallas could move on from him at minimal cost heading into 2021-22. At least to begin the upcoming season, Cauley-Stein could factor prominently into the Mavs' rotation, as the team may be without its top two centers on the depth chart in Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and Dwight Powell (Achilles). Before he opted out of joining Dallas for the 2019-20 season restart in Orlando this summer, Cauley-Stein had largely been an afterthought for head coach Rick Carlisle. After being acquired from the Warriors in late January, Cauley-Stein appeared in 13 games for Dallas, averaging 5.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 12.1 minutes per contest.

Willie Cauley-Stein: Opting for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein declined his $2.28 million player option for the 2020-21 season Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

Cauley-Stein will hit the open market for a second straight offseason after he appeared in 54 games between the Warriors and Mavericks in 2019-20, averaging 7.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 20.3 minutes per contest over 54 games. At this point in his career, the 2015 lottery pick hasn't shown much growth on the offensive end, nor has he developed into the defensive stalwart some talent evaluators may have envisioned when he entered the league. Cauley-Stein may have to settle for another low-cost, one-year deal in free agency, and he'll likely be ticketed for a backup role regardless of where he lands.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Sitting out resumption of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein informed the Mavericks on Thursday that he will sit out the resumed 2019-20 season because he and his partner are expecting a newborn child in July, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

With Cauley-Stein skipping out on joining the Mavericks in Orlando when the season resumes next month, Boban Marjanovic and Maxi Kleber could see more time at center. In a corresponding move, the Mavericks signed Trey Burke.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

The 26-year-old was considered probable with an illness, and he'll be available as expected. Cauley-Stein may see increased run Wednesday with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) unavailable.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Probable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (illness) is probable for Wednesday's contest against the Nuggets.

After a one-game absence, Cauley-Stein will likely be back in the mix. With Kristaps Porzingis (rest) sitting out, Cauley-Stein could see an expanded role along with Maxi Kleber.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Won't travel to San Antonio
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (illness) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Cauley-Stein picked up an illness Monday morning and will not make the trip to San Antonio. The hope is that he'll return for Wednesday night's home matchup against Denver.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Doesn't see floor Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (personal) went unused off the bench in Monday's 109-107 loss to the Bulls, despite rejoining the Mavericks in Chicago for the contest.

Cauley-Stein was back with the team following a nine-day leave of absence due to a death in his family, according to Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News. Given Cauley-Stein lack of recent practice time, it wasn't surprising that he didn't see any run in a close game, but the center won't necessarily be included in coach Rick Carlisle's rotation moving forward. Before leaving the team, Cauley-Stein went unused in the last game he was active for back on Feb. 21.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Will be available
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (personal) will be available for Monday's game against the Bulls, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Cauley-Stein had been away from the team due to a personal issue, but he was at shootaround and will dress for Monday's contest. However, it's unclear how much he'll be involved, even on a night when the Mavs will rest Kristaps Porzingis.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Considered probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (personal) is considered probable for Monday's tilt with Chicago, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Cauley-Stein, who rejoined the team earlier in the day after a six-game absence due to a personal issue, will likely return to the court accordingly. While another update ahead of tipoff should clarify his status, if Cauley-Stein does get back out there, he'll presumably play in his usual backup capacity.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Set to join team Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rick Carlisle said Cauley-Stein (personal) is scheduled to rejoin the Mavericks in Chicago in advance of Monday's game against the Bulls, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Cauley-Stein won't be available for a sixth straight game Sunday against the Timberwolves, the last five of those being the result of the personal matter. The first of the absences came in the Mavs' first game out of the All-Star break Feb. 21 in Orlando, when he simply went unused off the bench in a coach's decision. Though Cauley-Stein will likely dress Monday, he may not be included in Carlisle's rotation, especially after he hasn't even practiced with the team over the past week.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Remains away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein will miss at least the next three games while tending to a personal issue, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

According to coach Rick Carlisle, Cauley-Stein will remain away from the team until at least early next week. This safely rules him out for the following three contests but it could extend beyond depending on Cauley-Stein's needs. Look for an update to come early next week clarifying the 25-year-old's availability for next Monday's tilt with Chicago.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (personal) won't play Monday against the Timberwolves.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Questionable for Monday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein (personal) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

After missing the last two games due to personal reasons, Cauley-Stein is now in jeopardy of missing a third straight contest Monday. Look for Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber and Boban Majanovic to see slight upticks in minutes if the big man does not suit up.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Out for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein is out for personal reasons Saturday against the Hawks.

The Mavericks will be short-handed Saturday across nearly every position. With Cauley-Stein and Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out in the frontcourt, Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber and Boban Majanovic could be in for extended run.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein will come off the bench Monday against Utah, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

Cauley-Stein drew a spot start Saturday against the Hornets with Kristaps Porzingis out of the mix, but he'll head right back to the bench for Monday's tilt. He's averaging 5.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in his first seven games with Dallas.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein will come off the bench Monday against the Pacers.

Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein: Grabs 10 boards as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cauley-Stein finished with seven points (3-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 123-100 win over the Hawks.

Cauley-Stein looked productive in his first start of the season and ended just three points shy of what would've been his third double-double of the year. He only got the start due to Kristaps Porzingis' scheduled day off, however, meaning he should return to a bench role Monday at Indiana.
