Dallas Mavericks

Western Southwest


Dwight Powell scored six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT) with eight assists, seven rebounds, and two blocks over 28 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Timberwolves 136-121 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Powell led the team with a season-high eight assists on the night. He also chipped in two blocks and hauled in seven rebounds. Powell has played well of late and is rounding into form as the season comes to a close. He should be able to provide some quality minutes for Dallas this postseason.

Jalen Brunson put up 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go along with three assists and one steal over 27 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the T-Wolves 136-121 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Brunson led all bench scorers with his 15 points on Sunday. He finishes his third year in the league with averages of 12.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per contest, which were all season highs.

Josh Richardson scored 11 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3PT) with five rebounds and four assists over 22 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Timberwolves 136-121 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson was relegated to the bench in favor of Tim Hardaway Jr. last week and the team seemed to play much better after the move. J-Rich was a letdown during his first season with Dallas but should operate better as a sixth man in the postseason.

Dorian Finney-Smith scored 17 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3PT, 1-2 FT) with three rebounds and two assists 0ver 28 minutes as the Mavericks beat the Raptors 114-110 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Friday's game broke a four-game single-digit scoring streak for DFS. Prior to that four-game streak, he had scored in the double figures in 9-of-11 games. He's picked his game up for the Mavs recently and is averaging 12.4 points per game while making 2.8 3PTM over his last 23 games.

Kristaps Porzingis dropped 21 points (9-19 FG, 3-5 3PT), 10 rebounds, and two assists over 34 minutes as the Mavericks beat the Raptors 114-110 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Porzingis picked up his first double-double since making his return from a knee injury two games ago. He knocked down three triples and hauled in 10 boards. He looks to be rounding into form as the postseason approaches, which should benefit the Mavs tremendously.

Luka Doncic provided 20 points (7-19 FG, 1-8 3PT, 5-5 FT) to go along with 11 assists, 10 rebounds, and one block over 34 minutes as the Mavericks took down the Raptors 114-110 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Doncic picked up his second double-double of the month on Friday as the Mavericks held off the Raptors to secure their 42nd win of the year. The Mavs have a full game lead over the Blazers as they hold on to the fifth seed in the Western Conference. They visit the Timberwolves for their season finale on Sunday.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 27 points (10-18 FG, 3-10 3PT, 4-4 FT) with four rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 29 minutes as the Mavs took down the Pelicans 125-107 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hardaway Jr. took Josh Richardson's place in the starting lineup on Wednesday, a position he's certainly earned with his recent play. He's now scored in the double figures in 10 straight games while scoring 20 or more in six of them. He's starting to peak at the right time with the playoffs fast approaching.

Mavs' G JJ Redick will miss the remainder of the regular season due to ongoing right heel soreness, according to head coach Rick Carlisle. (Source: Tim MacMahon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Redick has only appeared in 13 games this season, a career low for the veteran guard. In the games that he has played, Redick has only notched an average of 4.4 points across 11.3 minutes per game. As such, this move won't make much of a fantasy impact. Redick will look to return to the Mavs come playoff time.

Willie Cauley-Stein scored 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-3 FT) to go along with eight rebounds and one assist over 15 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Grizzlies 133-104 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Cauley-Stein started at center and put up some impressive numbers despite logging just 15 minutes. This marked the first time he's scored in the double figures since April 22. WCS is capable of putting up solid numbers when he logs consistent minutes but he doesn't do it often enough to warrant any DFS value down the stretch.

Maxi Kleber (ankle) will not play on Sunday as the team looks to manage his injury with the playoffs looming. (Source: Mavs PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kleber's presence has been inconsistent of late as his season hasn't been one for the ages, so it's likely that his absence will not affect too many managers. However, with him out, Dwight Powell should be a focal point for Dallas on Sunday.

Trey Burke provided 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-7 3PT) to go along with five assists, two rebounds, and two assists over 28 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Kings 113-106 on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: This game came out of nowhere for Burke, who hadn't played more than 25 minutes since late January. His 19 points were the most he's scored since January 20 as well. He's really taken a backseat to Jalen Brunson, who took over as the second unit point guard in early February so Burke doesn't provide much value from a fantasy perspective.

Nicolo Melli scored 10 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with eight rebounds and three assists over 28 minutes as the Mavericks defeated the Wizards 109-87 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: With Max Kleber sitting out, Melli drew his first start for Dallas. He delivered an excellent game, shooting 100-percent from the field and the charity stripe while hauling in eight rebounds and dishing four assists. He's not really a fantasy option moving forward but he should help Dallas down the stretch as they look to secure a playoff spot.

Boban Marjanovic scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with 12 rebounds and one block over 24 minutes as the Mavericks defeated the Wizards 109-87 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Kristaps Porzingis got the night off to rest his surgically repaired knee so Marjanovic started in his place. He's usually a safe bet for a double-double whenever he plays starter minutes and he came through for Dallas on Saturday. He picked up his third double-double of the season but only swatted one shot. KP should be back in the lineup on Monday vs. the Jazz so Marjanovic will head back to the bench.

James Johnson put up eight points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds, three assists, and two steals over 28 minutes in the Mavericks 110-107 win over the Celtics on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Kristaps Porzingis missed his second-straight game with lower back tightness and Maxi Kleber was also out with an ankle sprain so Johnson drew the start. He was playing for the first time since February 4th and played a quietly efficient game. Johnson can be an effective fantasy performer if he gets the minutes but he hasn't been playing at all over the last month. Johnson will head back to the bench as soon as Porzingis and Kleber are back in the lineup.
