Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: 'Doing pretty much everything'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Rick Carlisle, Brunson (shoulder) "is doing pretty much everything," but the strength level in his shoulder is what's keeping him a couple months away from playing, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

While Brunson has already been ruled out of participating in the remainder of the 2019-20 season, it's encouraging that he's making good progress with his recovery from right shoulder surgery. All signs are pointing to him being full strength for next year.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Ruled out for 2019-20 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said last week that Brunson (shoulder) will join the team in Orlando in late July for the restart of the season but won't play in games, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.

Brunson underwent surgery in mid-March to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, a procedure that was expected to sideline him for 4-to-6 months. Though Brunson will have already passed the short end of that timeline by the time the season restarts, the Mavericks are apparently inclined to take a cautious approach with his recovery and won't be rushing him back to action. With Brunson out of the picture for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, either Delon Wright or J.J. Barea will act as the Mavs' primary ball handler when Luka Doncic is off the floor.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Seven weeks into 4-to-6 month rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) is seven weeks into his rehab, which was expected to be four-to-six months following surgery, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports.

Brunson added that his recovery is "going pretty well," but that it seems unlikely that he'd return in July if the season resumes then. However, he should be ready for next season's training camp. This campaign, he's averaging 8.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 17.9 minutes.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Should be healthy for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) is planning on being recovered in time to participate in next season's training camp, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Brunson underwent shoulder surgery to address a torn labrum in mid-March. He had a similar season to his 2018-19 rookie campaign but set career marks in assists (3.3) and rebounds (2.4) per game, as well as free-throw percentage (81.3) and three-point percentage (35.8). Barring any major roster shakeup, Brunson should remain the Mavericks' backup point guard in 2020-21.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle confirmed that Brunson won't return this season after undergoing right shoulder surgery earlier Friday, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

Brunson was initially deemed out indefinitely after requiring the procedure to address a torn labrum, but Carlisle was able to provide a clearer timeline for the second-year guard's recovery. Even with the current NBA season being suspended and potentially on track to run deeper into the summer than in years past, Carlisle said he doesn't anticipate Brunson to receive full medical clearance until training camp next fall. Brunson will wrap up his sophomore campaign with averages of 8.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game across 57 appearances.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson underwent surgery on his right shoulder Friday to address a torn labrum, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 23-year-old suffered the injury in late February and was attempting to finish the season without going under the knife, but the suspension of the NBA season Wednesday appears to have spurred a change of plan. Brunson remains without an official recovery timetable.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Remains out vs. Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) will remain out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

The reserve guard hasn't played since Feb. 21 due to a sprained right shoulder, but he was able to get some on-court work in over the weekend. Consider him very much questionable for Saturday's home matchup against Phoenix.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Gets in on-court workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) completed an on-court workout prior to Sunday's game against the Pacers, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

Brunson will miss his eighth straight game Sunday and remains without an official timeline to return from his sprained right shoulder, but his ability to take part in some on-court work can be taken as a positive sign. The Mavericks will likely have a more definitive target date for the guard's return to action once he's able to take part in practice in some capacity.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rick Carlisle indicated Wednesday that Brunson (shoulder) is considered week-to-week, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Brunson is apparently taking part in running and shooting, but he's otherwise fairly limited. The 23-year-old suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder Feb. 22 and doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, but he's attempting to recover enough without surgery to retake the court again this season.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Torn labrum confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) confirmed Friday that he has a torn labrum, but he'll look to heal well enough to finish this season without surgery, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

While it's possible Brunson will undergo surgery over the summer, his current focus is to rehab and return this season. More information on a timetable may emerge once he hits various milestones in his recovery.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: May have torn labrum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mavericks fear Brunson has a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Brunson has missed the past three games due to the shoulder injury, and he's expected to remain sidelined for the rest of Dallas' road trip -- which spans three more games and ends Monday in Chicago -- and potentially beyond then. While he's apparently planning on returning at some point before the end of the season, postseason surgery remains a possibility for the 23-year-old guard.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Out another five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rick Carlisle said Brunson (shoulder), who is out for Monday's game against Minnesota, will not play during the Mavericks' upcoming four-game road trip, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Brunson injured his shoulder during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, and it turns out he'll miss at least the next five games as a result. In his absence, Seth Curry, Delon Wright and Tim Hardaway are all candidates to see increased run.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Listed out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson (shoulder) is listed as out for Monday's game against Minnesota.

Brunson dislocated his shoulder Saturday night, and he'll miss at least one game as the Mavs head into a four-game week. The Villanova product said Saturday night that he was able to pop the shoulder back into place, but he's presumably dealing with a fair amount of soreness that could linger.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Suffers dislocated shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson suffered a dislocated right shoulder during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 23-year-old said his shoulder thankfully popped back in quickly, but he didn't return to the game with what the team labeled as a shoulder sprain. Brunson sustained the injury on the first play of the game and should be considered questionable for Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves until the team updates his status.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Leaves after hard fall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson won't return Saturday against the Hawks after spraining his right shoulder on the first play of the game.

Brunson took a hard fall and immediately left for the locker room. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss. Delon Wright should see increased run since Luka Doncic (ankle) is also sidelined.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson is starting Saturday's game in Atlanta.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson will come off the bench Friday against the Magic.

Brunson will come off the bench for the first time since Jan. 31, with coach Rick Carlisle giving Seth Curry the nod in the backcourt. Across 40 appearances as a reserve, Brunson is averaging 6.7 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 14.4 minutes.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson will start Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

In a late change to the starting lineup, Brunson will take on first-team shooting guard duties instead of Courtney Lee, who was initially pegged as the starter. On the year, the Villanova product's averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: To bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt with Sacramento, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

Brunson will shift back into his usual bench role with Luka Doncic making his return from a seven-game absence. In 18.3 minutes per game this season, the second-year guard out of Villanova is averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.5 rebounds.

Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Scores 20 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brunson notched 20 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists and two rebounds in 33 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 121-107 loss against the Grizzlies.

Brunson has started in Dallas' last three games, and he has reached the 20-point plateau in two of those outings. He has shot 41.7 percent from three-point range in those three contests. Considering how depleted the Mavericks' backcourt is, Brunson should remain a starter while logging heavy minutes, at least on a short-term basis.
