Dirk Nowitzki News

Dirk Nowitzki    F  Mavericks

 

 

Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Kings, scoring 12 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and one triple. He played 32 minutes, but there was never any indication that he was going to be limited. It's safe to assume that Nowitzki was rested on Sunday vs. Houston on the second night of a back-to-back set, so his fantasy owners should be mindful of those going forward. Looking ahead, the Mavs do have a back-to-back set on Feb. 23 and Feb. 24, but maybe Dirk plays in both games since the Mavs now have nine days off for the All-Star break.

Coach Rick Carlisle said that Dirk Nowitzki (ankle), J.J. Barea (rest) and Wes Matthews (lower back tightness) will all be available to play Tuesday vs. the Kings. Dirk sat out Sunday vs. Houston. It was the first and only game he's missed this season. Prior to Sunday's contest, Dirk was averaging 15.8 points, 7.6 boards and 2.6 triples over his previous five games. He can still produce, but the Mavs will likely limit his minutes as the shift in tank mode over the final two months of the season.

Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings. This pretty much confirms that Nowitzki was rested on the second night of a back-to-back on Sunday. He's only missed one game this season, but it will be interesting to see how the Mavs handle his minutes down the stretch with nothing to play for expect lottery balls. That's another reason why Dwight Powell is trending up.

Dirk Nowitzki    F  Mavericks

 

 

Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points with four rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 24 minutes during a 130-123 win over the Lakers on Saturday. The Mavs offense has looked a lot better recently and Dirk has hit his stride over his last five outings. In those games, Nowitzki averaged 15.8 points, 7.6 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks, 2.6 treys and 0.2 misspelled jerseys per game. He's actually been a fifth-round value over his last 20, so he's one of the sneakiest fantasy assets out there.

Nowitzki tallied 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and an assist in 26 minutes during Saturday's 106-99 win over the Kings. Nowirzki continues to be a steady presence in Dallas' frontcourt, and the 39-year-old just keeps chugging along with decent stat lines. He's been averaging 12 points and 5.6 rebounds this season, and while that's nowhere near his totals of the old days, he's still making an impact.

Nowitzki scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 loss to the Suns. It's only his third double-double of the season, and his first in over a month. Nowitzki is still capable of the occasional production performance, but overall his numbers continue to trend down -- not surprising for a player who'll turn 40 just after the playoffs, and who is old enough to be the father of some of his teammates.

Nowitzki supplied 11 points (4-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 25 minutes in Saturday's 91-89 loss to the Nuggets. The future Hall of Famer snapped a three-game streak of single-digit point totals, getting back over the 10-point mark with the help of an impressive 60.0 percent success rate from behind the arc. Nowitzki had actually failed to hit double digits in the scoring column in five of the last six contests overall prior to Saturday, and he remains mired in a four-game shooting slump that seen him drain just 27.7 percent of his 36 shot attempts during that stretch. The 39-year-old has remained more consistent on the glass, as he's hauled in between four and nine rebounds in six of the last seven contests.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Dirk Nowitzki (illness) is feeling better and will play Friday vs. Portland. Dirk played only 15 minutes Wednesday vs. Houston due to a stomach bug. Surprisingly, Dirk has yet to miss a game this season, appearing in all 48 games the Mavs have played.

Dirk Nowitzki was battling an illness on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes against the Rockets. Coach Rick Carlisle said he was sick a couple days ago, so apparently there's a bug going around with the Mavs. Nowitzki's minutes were down in this game, so this news explains that. He should be OK for Friday against the Blazers.
