Kleber contributed nine points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt) in 15 minutes during Monday's 95-88 loss to the Heat.
Among the 10 Mavericks who saw the floor, Kleber saw fewer minutes than all but two (Salah Mejri and Kyle Collinsworth). Kleber's role and minutes fluctuate pretty wildly from game to game, as evidenced by the fact that he dropped eight points, four boards, three dimes, three steals, two blocks, and two threes in 35 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Nuggets. However, Kleber is mostly hit or miss when it comes to fantasy, and more often than not it's the latter.
Kleber will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
The Mavericks are going big once again, with Kleber entering the starting five and Yogi Ferrell settling for a bench role. That said, Kleber is no stranger to the starting five and already has 28 previous stints in the top unit, posting averages of 6.3 points and 3.9 rebounds across 20.5 minutes. Despite the promotion, Kleber has limited utility for Tuesday's DFS slate.
The Mavericks originally reported that Kleber would start as usual, but made a last second swap and added Yogi Ferrell to the top unit in what appears to be a smaller lineup. Kleber, as a result, will head to the bench and could see a slight drop in his overall workload.
Kleber finished with 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, five blocks two assists and two steals in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 98-93 victory over the Raptors.
Kleber did a bit of everything Tuesday, helping the Mavericks to an upset win over the Raptors. He had seen his minutes drop over the last three games but was able to get 25 minutes of court time in the win. He has been a nice find for the Mavericks, and although very inconsistent, he has flashed some nice fantasy upside. He is not really worth owning except in deeper leagues but should be able to carve out a more prominent role as the season progresses.
