Fantasy Impact: Hardaway will continue his playoff absence by missing Sunday's Game 4 of the Western Conference semi-finals with the Suns. The veteran has continued to deal with a foot injury that he had surgery on in January and has continued to have not word on his potential return to play.

Fantasy Impact: The Mavericks were able to take a 2-1 series lead and now get Doncic back. He is still potentially seeing a limit on his minutes in his first game back before likely seeing his full workload in Game 5 if all goes well.

Fantasy Impact: Maxi Kleber will sit Sunday and miss his fourth straight contest as he continues to deal with soreness in his right ankle. Davis Bertans should see a bigger role tonight with Kleber and Marquese Chriss (illness) both out Sunday.

Dwight Powell scored 18 points (7-7 FG, 0-0 3PT, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and a block across 28 minutes in a 128-78 win over Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Dwight Powell was perfect from the field Friday night, scoring 18 and playing in his 81st game of the season. He is also the only Maverick to have appeared in every game this season so far, and one of only five players in the NBA to do so. Powell also scored in double figures for the 14th time in 21 games. Powell's consistency down low will be a big factor is Dallas' ability to go deep into the playoffs in the West.

Dorian Finney-Smith scored 15 points (5-7 FG, 5-7 3PT, 0-0 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block across just 24 minutes in a 128-78 absolute thumping of Portland.

Fantasy Impact: Dorian Finney-Smith posted a solid 15 point, seven rebound performance highlighted by five three pointers. This marked the fourth time in five games that Finney-Smith has scored in double figures. The five three pointers was the Florida product's second highest total of the season and the second time in the last five games that he has hit 5+ from deep.

Spencer Dinwiddie put up 13 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and a steal in the win.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran guard put up an all-around solid performance in just 23 minutes off the bench for Dallas. He has been great in his 6th man role, but I would expect him to see some increased minutes in the postseason.

Jalen Brunson finished with 24 points (9-15 FG, 1-2 3PT, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and a steal in the win over the Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: Brunson continues to be a great two-man to Luka Doncic. He has really thrived in a huge contract year for him. JB should finish the year strongly.

Trey Burke is not with the team and will remain out for Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Burke is currently in the NBA's health and safety protocols, and he isn't with the team at this time. He will miss Sunday's game, and it's unclear how much time he will miss beyond that. Fantasy managers can look for Spencer Dinwiddie and Frank Ntilikina to continue to see additional usage in his absence.

Fantasy Impact: The Mavericks will remain without the services of Sterling Brown, Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway, Theo Pinson, and potentially Frank Ntilikina on Friday as they take on the Wizards. With the quartet of veterans potentially out, the Mavericks will look to give Davis Bertans and potentially new member Brandon Knight more minutes.

Reggie Bullock scored 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3PT) to go along with one rebound, one assist and two steals on Tuesday against the Lakers.

Fantasy Impact: Bullock has averaged 20 points over his last two games, shooting 12-21 from deep in that span. He doesn't offer too much appeal or upside in any category other than three-point shots, though he has racked up six steals in his last five games.

Davis Bertans will be available to play in Sunday's game against the Utah Jazz. (Source: Mavs PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bertans is dealing with right-knee soreness that has sidelined him for three-consecutive games, but he will be able to suit up for Sunday. His presence doesn't have a major impact on the lineup, but it probably will mean less minutes for players like Marquise Chriss.

Fantasy Impact: This is the seventh consecutive game the fifth-year forward will be forced to miss due to right knee soreness. With the addition of Davis Bertans, Chriss may find it hard to carve out minutes when he returns to the lineup.

Theo Pinson (fifth finger fracture) is listed as out against Golden State. (Source: Dallas Mavericks)

Fantasy Impact: After fracturing his pinkie finger against Detroit on February 8th, Pinson has been shelved with no firm timetable for his return given. Should he be cleared soon, he figures to return to his fringe rotation role with Dallas and play sparingly.
