  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Questionable Monday

    Wood (thumb) is questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Wood has missed the last eight games due to a fractured left thumb, but the Mavericks hope he'll be able to return Monday against Utah or Wednesday against the Clippers. If he's available Monday, it wouldn't be surprising to see him face a minutes restriction.

  • Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Set to make Dallas debut Wednesday

    Irving (calf) is expected to arrive in Dallas on Monday to take his physical before making his Mavericks debut Wednesday versus the Clippers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After being acquired from the Nets on Sunday, Irving won't be available for the Mavericks' first of the team's four games this week on Monday against the Jazz, but he looks like he'll be ready to go for Dallas' other four contests. Luka Doncic (heel) has also been ruled out for Monday's game, opening the door for Tim Hardaway, Jaden Hardy, Reggie Bullock and Josh Green to get some extended time in the spotlight.

  • Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Traded to Dallas

    The Mavericks acquired Morris (knee) and Kyrie Irving (calf) from the Nets on Sunday in exchange for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, an unprotected 2029 first-round pick and 2027 and 2029 second-round picks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Morris hadn't been a regular part of the Brooklyn rotation this season, and though he joins a Dallas frontcourt that's comparatively lacking in depth, the 33-year-old isn't a lock see consistent minutes off the bench. At least in the short term, Morris may have a path to playing time on the second unit while Finney-Smith is out of the picture and while Davis Bertans (calf) and Maxi Kleber (hamstring) are both potentially out through the All-Star break. Christian Wood (thumb), meanwhile, has missed Dallas' last eight games but could be back in action as soon as Monday in Utah.

  • Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Shipped to Dallas

    The Nets traded Irving (calf) and Markieff Morris to Dallas on Sunday in exchange for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, an unprotected 2029 first-round pick and 2027 and 2029 second-round picks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Irving's tenure in Brooklyn is over after a tumultuous four-year stretch. When available, the star point guard's basketball abilities are undeniable, but his antics off the court have been the storyline since he won a championship with LeBron James and the Cavaliers in 2016. His fit in Dallas appears to be seamless, as he'll take over the No. 2 role behind Luka Doncic that Dinwiddie had flourished in recently. More importantly, Irving is on an expiring deal, so given the amount of assets the Mavericks gave up, it seems likely that Dallas will attempt to sign the veteran to a multi-year deal, though it's unclear if Irving is willing to do so. He was recently sidelined for Brooklyn's previous game (Saturday against Washginton) due to a calf injury, but there's no reason to believe that issue will hinder his ability to suit up for Dallas moving forward. Dallas will return to action Monday in Utah, but it's not yet clear if he'll be able to make his Mavericks debut for that contest.

  • Mavericks' Dwight Powell: Decent numbers in loss

    Powell closed with 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and four steals over 30 minutes during Saturday's 119-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Powell's output has dipped this season due to Christian Wood's (thumb) presence, but the former has seen a bit of a boost during the latter's recent absence. Over the past eight games, Powell has averaged 9.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocked shots.

  • Mavericks' Dorian Finney-Smith: One rebound shy of double-double

    Finney-Smith finished Saturday's 119-113 loss to Golden State with 18 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes.

    Finney-Smith is usually dependable as a production source when Luka Doncic (heel) is sidelined, and he came through with a respectable total in Saturday's loss. The Florida product is as consistent as they come for the Mavericks, with 180 starts in 180 games over the past three years. The veteran has experienced some struggles with his shot this season, as his field goal percentage of 41.6 percent through 40 games is a sharp decline from previous seasons.

  • Mavericks' Spencer Dinwiddie: Pours in 25 without Doncic

    Dinwiddie produced 25 points (9-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 119-113 loss to the Warriors.

    As one might expect, Dinwiddie carried a heavy load with Luka Doncic (heel) sidelined. Dinwiddie had an efficient night of scoring, converting 52.9 percent of his shots and going 3-of-6 beyond the arc. Doncic's absence resulted in Josh Green's insertion into the backcourt alongside Dinwiddie, but the combo was able to produce a total of only 37 points, far below the backcourt's usual numbers when Doncic directs the offense.

  • Mavericks' Davis Bertans: Out through All-Star break

    Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd said Saturday that Bertans (calf) will "probably" remain sidelined through the All-Star break, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports. "When we come back [from the break], we'll see where he's at," Kidd said of Bertans.

    Bertans exited Thursday's 111-106 win over the Pelicans with a left calf strain and underwent an MRI on Friday that apparently revealed that his injury was more significant than a day-to-day concern. The veteran forward will sit out the Mavericks' final six contests prior to the break before the Mavericks reassess his status.

  • Mavericks' Josh Green: Starting for injured Doncic

    Green will start Saturday's game against the Warriors, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.

    Green gets the nod with Luka Doncic (heel) sidelined for the next two games. It will mark just his second start of the season, but in the six games Green has seen 30-plus minutes, he's averaged 15.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Will remain out through Monday

    Doncic (heel), who has already been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Warriors, will remain sidelined for Monday's contest against the Jazz, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Josh Green is expected to enter the starting five in place of the four-time All-Star, while Spencer Dinwiddie and Tim Hardaway are projected to take on increased roles as the Mavericks' primary ball handlers and scoring options in Doncic's stead. The Mavericks will presumably re-evaluate Doncic following Monday's contest before making a call on his status ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

  • Mavericks' Spencer Dinwiddie: Active Saturday

    Dinwiddie (knee) will play in Saturday's game against the Warriors.

    Dinwiddie was initially listed as questionable for the contest due to recovery from a right knee issue but has been given the green light Saturday. He should retain a larger role in the Mavericks' offense with Luka Doncic (heel) sidelined and should increase his scoring output during the duration of Doncic's absence.
