Powell finished with eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in 13 minutes Monday night against Orlando.
Powell saw extended minutes in the second half after Willie Cauley-Stein (thumb) exited, and he made the most of his opportunities, knocking down three of four attempts from the field. The Stanford product could be in line for additional minutes Wednesday against Oklahoma City if Cauley-Stein is unable to go.
Powell will come off the bench Thursday against the 76ers, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Coach Rick Carlisle will opt to start Boban Marjanovic against Joel Embiid, so Powell will come off the bench. In 11 games off the bench this season, Powell has averaged 4.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.2 minutes.
Powell is starting Monday's game against the Grizzlies, MavStats reports.
Powell gets the starting nod at center for the Mavs, marking his seventh start of the season. He'll be in for considerable playing time with Kristaps Porzingis (back) ruled out.
Powell (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) missed his lone field-goal attempt and tallied three rebounds, one assist and one block across 13 minutes during Wednesday's 116-104 loss to the Jazz.
After missing the Mavericks' previous eight games while he navigated the health and safety protocol, Powell only saw limited action off the bench in his return. The Mavericks were beaten soundly, but Powell was at least a team-best plus-10 while he was on the court, though his contributions didn't really show up on the stat sheet. Powell could eventually work his way back into a starting role, but with Kristaps Porzingis, Willie Cauley-Stein and eventually Maxi Kleber (COVID-19) expected to factor into the mix at center, the 29-year-old will face a tough path to a consistent 20-minute role.
Powell (COVID-19 protocols) is available for Wednesday's game at Utah.
The 29-year-old missed eight games while going through the NBA's health and safety protocols, but he's been cleared to retake the court Wednesday. Powell is averaging 5.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 19.8 minutes this season.
Powell (COVID-19 protocols) is considered questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against Utah, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Powell has already missed eight games due to the league's health and safety protocols, but he might not miss any more. The questionable tag is an upgrade compared to where he's been throughout that period. He was averaging 5.0 points and 3.6 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game prior to being shut down.
Powell (COVID-19 protocols) won't play Monday against the Nuggets.
Powell remains in the NBA's health and safety protocols, and he'll be sidelined for an eighth consecutive contest as a result.

Powell had seven points (2-2 FG, 3-3 FT) and one steal in 10 minutes during Thursday's game against the Nuggets.
The 29-year-old averaged 22.0 minutes as a starter through the first six games of the season, but he played only 25 combined minutes coming off the bench the past two contests. Powell and new starter Willie Caulie-Stein should continue to split minutes at center until Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is cleared to return.
Powell recorded two points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes in the 93-83 win over Miami on Friday.
Powell had his second worst performance of the season in the win Friday. The center a season-low in attempts and could only convert from the line. He did manage to grab eight in the paint however and added an assist. Powell will continue to be a focal point, until Kristaps Porzingis returns to the team.
Powell played just 18 minutes, posting two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds, one assist and one steal during Wednesday's 106-102 loss to the Suns.
This was Powell's first game since January of last season when he tore his Achilles. There's a good chance he sees more time as the season goes on, but coach Rick Carlisle seemed plenty comfortable with using other frontcourt options like Maxi Kleber (27 minutes), James Johnson (14 minutes) and Willie Cauley-Stein (six minutes).
Powell (Achilles) confirmed Wednesday that he will be a "full go" when training begins later this month, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. "No hiccups [in the recovery process]," Powell said. "Ready to get going."
Though Powell ruptured his right Achilles' tendon Jan. 21 and required surgery, he looks to have benefited greatly from the delayed start to the 2020-21 season. While coach Rick Carlisle could look to limit Powell's minutes early on in the season and perhaps not use him in one half of back-to-back sets, the 29-year-old is expected to begin the campaign as the Mavericks' starting center with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out indefinitely. Before suffering the injury last season, Powell averaged 9.4 points (on 63.8 percent shooting from the field), 5.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks in 26.5 minutes per game over 40 appearances.
Powell (Achilles) has no movement limitations and would be able to scrimmage, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Powell has seemingly made close to a full recovery from the torn Achilles that he suffered in late January. While it's unclear when exactly teams will start getting together for workouts and training camps ahead of next season, the expectation should be that Powell will be 100 percent healthy by the time that comes around.
Powell (Achilles) recently progressed to jogging and on-court shooting, Tim Cato of The Athletic reports.
Powell underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles' tendon in late January, so it's encouraging he's starting to make some tangible basketball-related progress just over five months later. Prior to getting hurt, Powell was enjoying a strong season for the Mavericks, averaging 9.4 points (63.8 percent from the field), 5.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 26.5 minutes per game. A start date for the 2020-21 NBA season has yet to be firmly set, but if the upcoming campaign doesn't begin until at least mid-to-late December, Powell should have a decent shot at being cleared for the opener.
