Kleber finished with 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 97-92 loss to Minnesota.
Kleber had another impressive outing, despite the Mavericks suffering their third consecutive loss. He continues to start, having now averaged 29 minutes per game over the last three outings. Dallas has nothing to play for and developing their young players is going to be their main priority moving forward. While he isn't worth owning in most leagues at this stage, he is worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for his interesting skill-set.
Barnes tallied 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 997-92 loss to the Timberwolves.
Barnes led his team in scoring again Sunday, finishing with 19 points. He has been fairly consistent so far this season, without being spectacular. He is always going to be a nice source of points on an offensive starved Mavericks team but provides little else. He has seen his rebounding numbers go from 5.0 last season, to 7.4 this season. He still remains a purely a source of scoring and should be the number one option moving forward.
Butler had 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 97-92 victory over the Mavericks.
Butler was everywhere Sunday, helping the Timberwolves to a tough victory over Dallas. His slow start to the season is now a distant memory, as he continues his resurgence back into form. He looks like a completely different player of late, seemingly more aggressive on both ends of the floor. He has now played over 40 minutes in five consecutive games, a sign that he is healthy and free of any injury concerns.
Towns finished with 28 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 97-92 victory over Dallas.
Towns backed up his last game with another strong performance Sunday. He appears to be looking for the basket a bit more on offense, and his teammates are rewarding him by delivering the ball. He was guilty of committing seven turnovers, a number that is likely an outlier. Owners will be hoping he can continue his nice form against Joel Embiid and the 76ers on Tuesday.
Young finished with 18 points (8-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 126-116 victory over Denver.
Young was questionable heading into the game but appeared untroubled in 39 minutes of action. He was likely suffering from a thigh bruise, an injury which often causes discomfort more than anything serious. He was very efficient from the field Sunday, a common theme across most of his games this season. Barring any setbacks from the thigh concern, he should be ready to roll against the Thunder on Wednesday.
