Dallas Mavericks

Western Southwest

In an interview with Mavs.com, Jalen Brunson revealed that he has been given a four-to-six month timetable for recovery after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. (Source: Mavs.com)

Fantasy Impact: Brunson elected to have surgery on March 13th, two days after the NBA season was suspended indefinitely. Now seven weeks removed from surgery, Brunson said that his rehab is "going pretty well" but acknowledged that he would miss the remainder of the season if play resumes. The Mavericks backup point guard is expected to be ready for training camp next season.

Delon Wright scored 10 points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), with nine rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one block in 28 minutes off the bench in Wednesday night's 113-97 win over the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Wright (28 mins) ended up playing more off the bench than Courtney Lee did with the starters (20 mins). He doesn't take a lot of shots, but what he lacks in scoring, he more than makes up for in multiple other categories including rebounding, dishing the rock, and accumulating steals. He's a swiss-army knife off the bench for Dallas, and has quietly had a very productive month of March, averaging seven points, 5.9 boards, 4.1 assists, and 2.3 steals in 26 minutes per game. Wright, along with the rest of the NBA, will now have to wait and see what happens in the coming days and weeks as the league wraps its head around the indefinite suspension that was put in place after all the games went final tonight.

Luka Doncic compiled 28 points (10-22 FG, 6-11 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, two steals, and two 2-pointers across 40 minutes as the Mavericks beat the Nuggets 113-97 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Luka Doncic helped the Mavericks stop a two game losing streak. During the second half of the Mavericks game, the NBA announced that all games will be suspended going forward due the corona virus outbreak. Doncic did play the game with a wrap on his right wrist and now will have the time to get his wrist right for the playoffs.

Boban Marjanovich scored a career-high 31 points (12-20 FG, 7-8 FT), with 17 boards, one assist, and two steals in 31 minutes in Wednesday night’s 113-97 win over the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Free Boban! He was absolutely ballin’ tonight. Marjanovich started for the resting Kristaps Porzingis, and took full advantage of his opportunity, posting a monster 31 and 17 double-double. Everytime Boban sees the floor 20+ minutes he crushes. Unfortunately for us all, there won’t be any more NBA games for the foreseeable future, as the league has decided to suspend the season indefinitely after Jazz C Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus, but it was nice to see Boban go out with a bang.

Seth Curry (ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday night’s game against the Nuggets. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: It’ll be Curry’s 3rd straight game missed due to the ankle injury. Courtney Lee has been starting in his place, but it’s been Tim Hardaway Jr. that has been the biggest beneficiary of Curry’s absence. Hardaway Jr. has averaged 25 points in 38 minutes per game the last two games that Curry has been out.

Kristaps Porzingis has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game against Denver for rest.

Fantasy Impact: The Mavs are managing Porzingis on the second half of a back-to-back set on Wednesday. It may do him some good, as he's been mired in a shooting slump the last two games. Maxi Kleber and Willie Cauley-Stein could see more involvement Wednesday, while Porzingis should be back to action against the Suns on Saturday.

Dorian Finney-Smith put up 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3PT), four rebounds, and one steal across 37 minutes of play Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Finney-Smith re-entered the starting lineup after missing the previous two games with a hip injury and played his full allotment of minutes. Even so, he's only a borderline fantasy option as a secondary option in Dallas.

Category: Game Recaps


Tim Hardaway Jr.compiled 20 points, seven rebounds, four 3-pointers, three assists, and two steals over 37 minutes in the Mavericks 119-109 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hardaway continues to have an incredible March as he’s averaging 22.6 points and four 3-pointers a game over his last five contests. He might be a valuable pick-up in 3-pointers made category leagues, especially if you are streaming and need some help from beyond the arc in a tight match-up.

Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) will not play Tuesday’s game against the Spurs. (Source: Saad Yousuf on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Cauley-Stein did not make the trip to San Antonio and will not play Tuesday’s game. He picked up the illness sometime on Monday and it was serious enough to keep him out at least one game. His next chance to return will be Wednesday’s tilt against the Nuggets.

Maxi Kleber scored five points on 2-8 shooting from the field (1-4 3PT), with seven boards, four assists, one steal, five blocks and no turnovers across 39 minutes in a big 127-123 overtime win against Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact: Kleber got the start over Seth Curry tonight for Dallas. That’s a welcome sign for Kleber owners, as he’s been coming off the bench most games that Kristaps Porzingis has been in the starting lineup. Kleber lived up to expectations in this one, blocking five shots in a huge nationally televised game against a very solid New Orleans team. Over his last five games, Kleber is averaging 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, and less than one turnover per game. He’s efficiently producing across a multitude of categories for fantasy owners, and needs to be owned in all leagues at this point, especially if he continues to start alongside Porzingis.

Courtney Lee started and finished with eight points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3PT, 1-1 FT), three steals and three turnovers across 24 minutes in a 107-109 loss to the Bulls on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Lee was a player that forced his way onto the starting lineup because of injury reasons. There is no real reason to consider him in season-long leagues. For DFS, the risks much outweigh the rewards of playing a player like Lee.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not play in Wednesday's matchup against the Kings. (Source: Brad Townsend on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kidd-Gilchrist has yet to play since January 10th nor has he had his Mavericks' debut. Hopes are that the former 12th overall pick will be able to suit up and contribute after the All-Star break.

Category: Injury Updates


In order to create a roster spot for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the Dallas Mavericks have released Ryan Broekhoff, according to Tim MacMahon (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: While the Dallas shooting guard was not quite fantasy relevant, hopefully he will be able to find a roster spot elsewhere. It will be intriguing to see what Kidd-Gilchrist provides in his place.

J.J. Barea left Monday's game early with an ankle injury and apparently it is severe enough to keep him sidelined on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact: Barea and backcourt teammate Seth Curry have both been ruled out while Luka Doncic also remains sidelined. Jalen Brunson, Delon Wright, and Ryan Broekhoff will look to see extended minutes in their absences.

Dwight Powell suffered a right Achilles injury and did not return to Tuesday's game against the Clippers (Source: Tim MacMahon)

Fantasy Impact: Powell, the Mavs starting center, has been a solid contributor in the frontcourt for Dallas averaging 9.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists over 26.5 minutes per game this season. Expect Maxi Kleber to fill most of the void, while Boban Marjanovic may also see more consistent playing time now.

Category: Injury Updates


Justin Jackson finished with eight points, two rebounds, and one one block in 26 minutes of action in a win over the Nets on Thursday while starting in place of Kristaps Porzingis.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson certainly has some DFS appeal with Porzingis out of the lineup. Maxi Kleber is appearing to be the add for the time being while KP is out.

Category: Game Recaps


Zach Randolph has announced his retirement from the NBA. (Source: Clevis Murray on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The two-time All-Star played for five teams and averaged 16.6 points and 9.1 rebounds in his 17-year career. He most notably suited up for Memphis for eight seasons, and the Grizzlies plan to retire his jersey.
