Dwight Powell    F  Mavericks

 

 

Dwight Powell came off the bench for 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and one triple in 26 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday. He's getting minutes at the four and five these days and is one of the most efficient players in the NBA -- out of the 61 NBA players with at least 75 possessions as the latter half of the pick-and-roll, Powell leads them in scoring efficiency with 1.36 points per possession. He's scored at least 18 points in four straight games with at least six rebounds in each, so it's time to pick him up if he's still available in your league.

Dwight Powell    F  Mavericks

 

 

Dwight Powell started vs. the Rockets on Sunday, notching 18 points and 12 rebounds in 29 minutes during a competitive loss in Houston. This was Powell's second double-double of the season. He benefited from the absence of Dirk Nowitzki, who missed his first game of the season due to swelling in his left ankle. Dirk's role isn't guaranteed over the final 25 games of a rebuilding season, and Powell stands to gain whenever the veteran is limited. He's providing value in most formats even with Nowitzki active, so this is just one more reason to add him.

Dwight Powell    F  Mavericks

 

 

Dennis Smith Jr., Yogi Ferrell, Doug McDermott, Harrison Barnes and Dwight Powell are listed as the probable starters vs. Houston on Sunday. J.J. Barea (rest), Dirk Nowitzki (left ankle effusion), Wesley Matthews (lower back tightness) are all out on the second night of a back-to-back set. This lineup isn't official yet, but Powell has a great opportunity to produce tonight and is coming off a solid game with 19 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 23 minutes. His rest-of-season outlook is promising and he's trending up in a hurry.

Dwight Powell scored 19 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday. The move to the bench didn't phase him at all and he continues to put up strong lineups night after night. Since his minutes went up five games ago, Powell averaged 13.8 points, 7.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 turnovers on 73.0 percent from the field. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Dwight Powell made his third straight start on Monday vs. the Clippers, scoring eight points with 10 rebounds, four assists and a block in 28 minutes. We now have a decent sample size to work with and Powell continues to trend up. He's averaging 10.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.6 steals through three starts, making him a decent low-end big to pick up. It's going to be interesting to see what the Mavs do with Nerlens Noel (thumb) at the deadline, but Powell's role is safe for now.

Dwight Powell    F  Mavericks

 

 

Powell tallied 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 FT). nine rebounds, an assist and a steal in 31 minutes during Saturday's 106-99 win over the Kings. Powell started at power forward for the second time this week in lieu of Max Kleber, and once again he put up an impressive total, as he was one rebound shy of a double-double. It appears Kleber may be suffering a bit from the mid-season 'rookie wall', as his lackluster production was likely a big reason got the change. If Powell continues to start he could become relevant enough to be considered in seasonal formats.

Powell will start Saturday against the Kings, Sean Cunningham of KXTV Sacramento reports. Powell gets a second consecutive start in place of Maxi Kleber. He had seven points, seven rebounds and a steal over 28 minutes as a starter Wednesday against the Suns.

Dwight Powell made his first start this season with seven points, seven rebounds, one steal and three fouls in 28 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday. While the stat line doesn't pop, it's an encouraging game. The Mavs were trailing at half, but coach Rick Carlisle started Powell again in the third quarter. We'd probably like to see him start again and he would get a good matchup against the Kings on Saturday.

Dwight Powell is starting against the Suns on Wednesday. This is a very interesting move here and it'll be his first start of the season. He has upside, so he's a name to watch with a strong game today. Although, the Mavs play the matchups a lot.

Powell will start Wednesday against the Suns. Powell will pick up his first start of the season in place of Maxi Kleber, who will head to the bench after starting the previous seven contests. It's unclear if Powell will remain in the starting lineup beyond Wednesday, but either way he should continue to play an increased role for the struggling Mavericks.
