Broekhoff had 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three assists, one rebound, and one block in 22 minutes during Saturday's 106-100 loss to the 76ers.
Broekhoff finished with career highs in scoring, assists, made threes, and minutes, as the absences of J.J. Barea (ankle) and Devin Harris (back) allowed the 28-year-old rookie the opportunity to make an impact. This is the first time Broekhoff has reached double figures in scoring, and he has appeared in only 17 games.
Broekhoff (illness) was a DNP-Coach's Decision on Saturday against Golden State.
Broekhoff appeared to be active if needed, although Dallas kept him on the sideline. He doesn't currently possess much of a role within his team's rotation, so it's unclear as to whether he's still nursing an illness or he simply wasn't called upon to check into a tightly-contested game.
Brokehoff was held out of Thursday's matchup and missed Friday's practice because of an illness, so his status for Saturday doesn't currently look promising. Even when healthy he hasn't played much for Dallas so far this season.
Broekhoff missed shootaround due to an illness and is questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Broekhoff is one of three Mavericks players to miss shootaround Thursday morning. The guard, however, is not a key member of Dallas' rotation, so whether he is active or not will not have an impact on Thursday's outing.
Broekhoff dropped nine points (3-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) in Monday's preseason win against the 76ers to go along with two rebounds and an assist in 15 minutes.
The Australian small forward has been able to transfer his shooting skills to the NBA so far, as he's made 50 percent of his threes (5-10) this preseason after coming over from the Euro Cup league in the offseason. He'll likely be a sharpshooter off the Mavs' bench heading into the regular season, a position he filled well for Lokomotiv Kuban last year where he shot 54.9 percent from the field, 50.6 percent from three (5.2 attempts per game) and 88.6 percent from the line across 16 games. It's too early to determine exactly what the extent of Broekhoff's role will be, however if he is able to cultivate a consistent time off the bench, he could be a strong source of threes.
