Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber is in the starting lineup for Monday's Game 1 tilt against the Clippers, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Mavericks have opted to go big against the Clippers, which means Kleber will start opposite Kristaps Porzingis in the frontcourt. He averaged 9.9 points and 6.4 rebounds across 30.9 minutes as a starter during the regular season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber (knee) will play Tuesday against the Trail Blazers.

As expected, despite dealing with some knee soreness, Kleber will participate in the Mavericks' seventh seeding game. In the bubble, he's averaging 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.3 minutes.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Probable vs. Portland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber (knee) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

Kleber is dealing with a bruised right knee, but it's not expected to keep him from Tuesday's game, which falls on the second half of a back-to-back. He played 24 minutes in Monday's win over Utah, logging 11 points, three rebounds and three assists for his third consecutive game with double-digit scoring.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Scores 18, drains four treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber produced 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt) and six rebounds in 23 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 scrimmage loss to the Pacers.

Kleber got hot from beyond the arc while filling in as the starting center in place of Kristaps Porzingis, who forgot to get tested Saturday and was forced to sit this one out. Kleber has seen a boost in value since Dwight Powell (Achilles) was lost for the season, but it remains to be seen how many minutes Kleber will earn going forward assuming coach Rick Carlisle continues to employ Porzingis at center more often than not.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Productive in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber supplied 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 38 minutes Wednesday, as the Mavericks beat the Nuggets 113-97.

With Kristaps Porzingis (rest) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) inactive, Kleber was a boom candidate. While the usage and playing time was there, Boban Marjanovic (31 points, 17 rebounds) stole the spotlight. Nonetheless, Kleber hit double-digit scoring in consecutive contests for the first time since mid-January. The Mavericks will likely be fully healthy by their next game, which is in limbo given the ongoing international health scare.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber is starting Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

The 28-year-old returned to the bench Tuesday after starting the previous four games, but he'll move back into the starting lineup Wednesday with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) sitting out. Kleber is averaging 9.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.7 blocks in 30.6 minutes across his 20 starts this season.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Back to bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber will come off the bench Tuesday at San Antonio.

The 28-year-old started the last five games but will return to the bench with Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) back in action Tuesday. Kleber is averaging 8.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 block over 23.0 minutes in 44 games off the bench this season.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Blocks five shots in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber amassed five points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, five blocks, four assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 victory over the Pelicans.

Kleber moved into the starting lineup, supposedly for matchup purposes, and was able to deliver on the defensive end. The big man typically fills a muted role on offense, but he has value as a blocks streamer. Since the All-Star break, Kleber is averaging 2.6 rejections per game.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Double-double plus three swats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber totaled 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 109-107 loss to the Bulls.

Kleber filled in as the starter in place of Kristaps Porzingis (rest) and delivered an impressive performance with his second double-double of the year. Dwight Powell's season-ending Achilles injury has resulted in Kleber earning a couple additional minutes per night over the last month or so, and on nights when Porzingis is rested, Kleber makes for a quality choice in daily leagues.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Enters starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber is starting Monday's game against the Bulls.

Kleber will step into the starting lineup in place of Kristaps Porzingis, who's being held out Monday due to rest. Kleber's last start came Feb. 22 against Atlanta, when he finished with nine points, eight rebounds, five blocks and two assists in 30 minutes of action.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Scores eight points Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber contributed eight points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and two blocks during Friday's 126-118 loss to the Heat.

Along with Kristaps Porzingis, Kleber primarily guarded the paint on defense and shot from the perimeter on offense. Despite the lackluster shooting, he led both the bench in rebounds (six) and the team in blocks (two). The 28-year-old has averaged 9.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks since his 26-point performance on Feb. 21.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Season-high five blocks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber posted nine points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, five blocks and two assists across 30 minutes during Saturday's 111-107 loss to the Hawks.

Kleber has established himself as one of the better shot blockers in the league. Saturday's five swats marked a season high, and his block percentage of 3.9 ranks 19th in the league. In nine February games, Kleber is averaging 10.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.2 assists.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Career night off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber scored a career-high 26 points (10-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three rebounds, an assist and a block in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 122-106 win over the Magic.

The third-year big apparently recharged his batteries completely during his time off, as he hadn't scored more than 10 points in his last six games before the All-Star break. Kleber's role off the bench when the Mavs' roster is fully healthy won't afford him much consistency as a fantasy asset, but he does have upside in DFS tournaments if the game flow falls his way.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Kings, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.

Kleber started five of the last six games but will head to the bench, as he is 12-for-his-last-36 from the field. Courtney Lee will join the starting five as Luka Doncic (ankle) also makes his return.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Forgettable performance Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber recorded five points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes during Monday's loss to Utah.

Kleber was virtually played off the court by Bojan Bogdanovic and Rudy Gobert as the 27-year-old posted a team-worst minus-31 net rating during his 22 minutes of court time. While he isn't likely to blow owners away with his averages, it's highly unlikely that Kleber will continue to be this ineffective going forward.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Rejoins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber is in the starting lineup Saturday at Charlotte.

Kleber came off the bench Friday but is back in the starting five Saturday for the fourth time in the last five games. The 28-year-old is averaging 10.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 blocks in 30.8 minutes during that stretch.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber will come off the bench Friday against the Wizards.

After three straight starts, Kleber is coming off the bench while coach Rick Carlisle gives his starting spot to Courtney Lee. In 37 appearances off the bench this season, Kleber is averaging 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 23.2 minutes.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber will start Saturday's game against the Hawks, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

With Kristaps Porzingis (rest) out, Kleber will enter the starting five. In 10 previous starts, he's averaged 10.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.4 assists in 29.7 minutes.

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Has quiet night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kleber accrued eight points (3-9 FG, 2-8 3Pt), three rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Jazz.

With Dwight Powell likely out for the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles, Kleber was a hot add momentarily. Unfortunately, that was short-lived as the Mavericks recently traded for Warriors center Willie Cauley-Stein and Thunder big man Justin Patton to bolster their frontcourt depth. To make matters worse, this outing wasn't what fantasy owners had hoped for, as Kleber surprisingly saw only 17 minutes of action, and he took all but one of his shot attempts from beyond the arc. With Kristaps Porzingis now back in the picture and the team acquiring Willie Cauley-Stein via trade, Kleber's role is suddenly looking murkier.
