Top Mavericks News

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Probable with sprained toe

    Kleber is probable Wednesday against the Hawks due to a sprained left great toe, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

    Kleber seems to have aggravated his toe during Monday's game against the Magic. More information about his status may arrive following morning shootaround.

  • Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Could return Wednesday

    Nowitzki (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Nowitzki has yet to take part in any game action this season due to ankle surgery, although there's hope he could return in the near future. More news on his status for Wednesday should emerge closer to tip.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: To remain out Wednesday

    Smith (wrist) is out for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    J.J. Barea, Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris will continue to see an uptick in minutes with Smith set to miss his fourth straight game. He'll have a chance to return Thursday in Phoenix.

  • Mavericks' Salah Mejri: Returns from three-game absence

    Mejri (knee) played seven minutes off the bench Monday in the Mavericks' 101-76 win over the Magic, finishing with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound.

    Mejri hadn't played since Dec. 2 due to a knee injury, though it's believed he was held out of the Mavericks' prior contest Saturday against the Rockets in a coach's decision rather than as a result of any health concerns. He returned to action Monday, but it's unlikely he would have seen the floor if the game had been competitive throughout. Mejri is buried on the depth chart at center and has seen double-digit minutes just once in his nine appearances in 2018-19.

  • Mavericks' Harrison Barnes: Team-high 19 points Monday

    Barnes tallied 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3Pt), and five rebounds in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-76 victory over Orlando.

    Barnes led the way for the Mavericks on Monday, scoring 19 points including five triples. Barnes has been scoring the ball well lately but continues to offer very little outside of scoring and threes. He is consistent in doing what he does well but the limited skillset means he is simply a low-end standard league player.

  • Mavericks' Dwight Powell: Scores 16 points in victory Monday

    Powell managed 16 points (7-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Monday's 101-76 victory over Orlando.

    Powell played well in 20 minutes off the bench Monday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting. Powell has had some nice games over the past few weeks but rarely sees enough playing time to warrant any sort of standard league ownership. Barring any injuries to the starting frontcourt, Powell can be left alone in most formats.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Career-high numbers in victory

    Doncic had seven points (2-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, nine assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 101-76 victory over the Magic.

    Doncic struggled from the field in Monday's comfortable victory but compensated with career-high numbers in both rebounds and assists. His playing time was somewhat limited due to the nature of the scoreline which likely had an impact on his scoring. Doncic has to be the early season favorite to take out rookie of the year honors and is going to be a hot fantasy commodity for many years to come.

  • Mavericks' Jalen Brunson: Team-high 31 minutes Monday

    Brunson finished with 17 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 31 minutes during Monday's 101-76 victory over the Magic.

    Brunson set a new career-high with 17 points, beating out his previous high from just two days ago. Dennis Smith (wrist) is still yet to practice and it appears as though he could miss at least a couple more games. Brunson has certainly made the most of his opportunity, putting up double-digit scoring in three straight games. As long as Smith remains out, Brunson could be worth streaming in as a nice source of points, assists, and steals.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Available to play Monday

    Coach Rick Carlisle said Kleber (undisclosed) will be available Monday against the Magic, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.

    Kleber is slated to return after missing Saturday's game against the Rockets due to an undisclosed reason. The forward should assume his normal role off the bench. Over his last five games, Kleber is averaging 8.0 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 19.8 minutes.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Ruled out vs. Orlando

    Smith (wrist) will not play Monday against Orlando.

    Smith was initially listed as doubtful so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. The second-year guard will sit out for a third consecutive game, and the likes of J.J. Barea, Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris should continue picking up increased minutes in his stead.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Doubtful for Monday

    Smith (wrist) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Magic, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Smith is on track to miss a third straight game as he continues to battle a right wrist sprain. If the second-year guard remains sidelined, J.J. Barea, Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris should continue to pick up extra minutes.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Questionable for Monday

    Kleber is questionable for Monday's game against Orlando, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    After being held out of Saturday's contest against the Rockets due to undisclosed reasons, Kleber remains questionable for Monday's date against the Magic. If Kleber remains absent, Dorian Finney-Smith will likely get the bulk of minutes off the bench Monday.

  • Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Still no return date

    Nowitzki (ankle) said he remains without a timetable for his return, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

    Nowitzki said he's feeling much better, though he added that he's not quite ready to make his season debut. The hope is that he'll be cleared to return sometime in December. A concrete timetable for his return will hopefully materialize as he continues to ramp up his rehab.
