Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Modest line in Rising Stars Challenge loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith collected just seven points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), six assists and four rebounds across 21 minutes during Team USA's 155-124 loss to Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge.

The energetic rookie couldn't get much going with his shot, but he managed to offer serviceable contributions elsewhere on the stat sheet. Smith's shooting struggles have been a troublesome trend at times during his first campaign, and he headed into the All-Star break having posted a mediocre 39.4 percent success rate from the field -- including 31.7 percent from distance -- during his first 50 games. The 2017 first-round pick's 4.9 assists also leave something to be desired for a starting point guard, but given his first-unit role and vast skill set, he's likely to continue trending upward the more he plays during the remainder of the regular season.

Mavericks' Dwight Powell: Plays well again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Powell tallied 18 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 114-109 loss to Sacramento.

Powell shifted back to the bench with Dirk Nowitzki returning from a one-game absence, continuing his recent strong play. He continues to press his claims as standard league relevant, scoring and rebounding at a high rate. The minutes appear as though they are going to be there moving forward, and he has a chance to carve out a nice role for himself on the rebuilding Mavericks roster. Give him a look if you have someone to drop.

Mavericks' Wesley Matthews: Scores 13 points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews collected 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 114-109 loss to the Kings.

Matthews missed just one game due to a back concern, returning to the starting lineup for the matchup with the Kings. He saw a fairly standard workload, producing a fairly standard fantasy line. He is a streaky shooter and really holds value as just a streaming option in standard leagues.

Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nowitzki had 12 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 114-109 loss to Sacramento.

Nowitzki returned from a one-game absence, seeing 31 minutes of action. He didn't appear bothered by his ankle and was able to record a standard type of line. As the season moves past the All-star break, the Mavericks are going to be moving into tank mode and Nowitzki is one of the players who could see a reduced workload. This shouldn't have a major impact on his fantasy value if it does happen and he should remain owned in deeper leagues and a fringe player in standards.

Mavericks' Salah Mejri: Plays six minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejri played six minutes off the bench Tuesday against the Kings, finishing with one rebound and two block.

Mejri was considered questionable coming into Tuesday with a stiff neck but he was ultimately cleared to play two days after picking up a DNP-CD in Sunday's loss to Houston. Mejri played at least 14 minutes in each of his first three games in February, but he's played only 14 minutes in the Mavs' last three contests combined.
