  • Mavericks' Kostas Antetokounmpo: Continues to factor into rotation

    Antetokounmpo finished Wednesday's win with 11 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot.

    The younger brother of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kostas has been eased into G League action lightly, averaging about 23.9 minutes per game with the Legends. As a result, he hasn't put together many dominant performances, totaling 9.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in his rookie season but figures to get more opportunities as the campaign progresses.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Not expected to travel with team

    Smith (illness) isn't expected to join the team on their upcoming road trip, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith has missed the last four games due to back soreness and illness, and he figures to remain in Dallas when the Mavs travel to Indiana and Milwaukee over the next few days. While Dallas initially looked as though they were closing in on a trade involving Smith, they failed to receive any enticing offers and appear content holding onto the 21-year-old guard for now. Smith will likely remain on the shelf for the next few contests, although he should have a chance to take the court Tuesday against the Clippers.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Could remain with Mavs

    According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, the Mavericks are intent on reconciling with Smith.

    Within the last week, reports suggested the Mavs had amplified their efforts to trade the 2017 first-rounder, but they've apparently changed their tune after failing to receive any appealing offers. Per MacMahon, Dallas will not deal Smith for less than what it believes he's worth, so for the time being the guard will likely return to the rotation as next month's trade deadline nears. Smith has sat out the Mavs' last four games, with the team listing him on the injury report first with back soreness, and more recently with an illness. Dallas did not practice Thursday, and Smith's status is up in the air for upcoming road matchups against the Pacers and Bucks.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Big night in loss to Spurs

    Doncic scored a game-high 25 points (10-21 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 105-101 loss to the Spurs.

    He was mostly a one-man show for the Mavs -- no other Dallas player scored more than 13 points or dished more than three assists on the night, and Doncic tied Harrison Barnes for the team lead in boards as well. The rookie has drained multiple three-pointers in 14 of the last 16 games, averaging an impressive 23.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 3.1 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Ruled out Wednesday

    Smith (illness) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Mark Followill of Fox Sports Southwest reports.

    Wednesday will be Smith's fourth-straight absence with myriad issues. To add confusion, his name has been thrown in trade rumors throughout that period as well. It's unclear how long Smith will remain out, or if he'll be traded, but for the time being, he can be considered day-to-day. Jalen Brunson should continue to play a larger role in his absence.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Questionable with illness

    Smith is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs due to an illness, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith has been sidelined for the last three games due to back soreness, but the point guard is now reportedly dealing with an illness that could keep him out for Wednesday's outing. Dallas has also reportedly been discussing trade packages with other teams involving Smith, but that and his continued absence appear to be unrelated. Look for an update on Smith's health to come following the team's shootaround Wednesday morning.

  • Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Could be dealt by Mavs

    The Mavericks are "escalating talks" to trade Smith out of Dallas, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Smith has missed the last three games with what the Mavs are calling a sore back, but it's fair to question whether the team is simply holding him out because it believes a deal could be imminent. Wojnarowski mentions the Suns and the Magic as two teams that have been active in trade discussions, but Smith, a lottery pick in 2017, figures to draw interest from other organizations willing to take a chance on a 21-year-old with considerable upside. Smith is averaging 12.6 points, 3.9 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 27.7 minutes per game this season, and while he's improved his efficiency as a shooter -- 44.3% FG, 37.5% 3PT -- he's clashed with coach Rick Carlisle and has struggled to fit alongside the Mavs' new franchise cornerstone, Luka Doncic. From a fantasy perspective, a change of scenery would likely benefit Smith, assuming he's traded to a team that would be willing to commit to him as a starter.

  • Mavericks' DeAndre Jordan: Cruises to double-double in loss

    Jordan submitted 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 FT), 14 rebounds and three assists across 31 minutes Sunday in the Mavericks' 119-114 loss to the Warriors.

    It was another workmanlike double-double for Jordan, who has now achieved the statistical feat in 11 of the last 18 contests. As per usual, Jordan's 63.9 percent mark from the field places him among the league leaders, but the overall improvement he's shown from the charity stripe this season is beginning to tail off. His 68.8 percent mark is still 10 points better than his career-best rate from last season, but he's sitting at just 58.9 percent over the past month of action.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Deadly from deep vs. Warriors

    Doncic supplied 26 points (8-18 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 32 minutes Sunday in the Mavericks' 119-114 loss to the Warriors.

    While Doncic's outside shooting paled in comparison to his counterpart at point guard, Stephen Curry (11-for-19 from distance), the rookie still held his own in a touch matchup. Doncic is averaging 28.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 3.3 three-pointers and 1.8 steals in 34.5 minutes per game over his last four contests and should continue to benefit from a bump in usage while Dennis Smith (back) is sidelined.
