Wesley Matthews    G/F  Mavericks

 

 

Wesley Matthews ended up with 19 points, two assists, two rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot over 29 minutes in Saturday's road loss to the Lakers. Matthews was a very efficient 7-of-12 from the field, including 5-of-8 from behind the 3-point line, but the game got away from the Mavs early on. The swingman had an efficient shooting night, but he was also a dismal minus-29 rating, tied for worst on the team with fellow starter Harrison Barnes. He'll look to redeem himself in Saturday's game at Utah.

Wes Matthews (lower back tightness) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Kings, scoring 13 points with five rebounds, two assists and three triples in 29 minutes. Matthews, J.J. Barea and Dirk Nowitzki all looked fine, suggesting that they were simply rested on Sunday vs. Houston on the second night of a back-to-back. It wouldn't be surprising if the Mavs lowered the minutes of all their veterans down the stretch, but Matthews is a hold for now.

Wes Matthews (lower back tightness) will play Tuesday vs. the Kings. Matthews had played in every game this season prior to Sunday's contest vs. Houston. He's put up solid numbers this year, but will likely see quite a few more days off and fewer minutes over the final two months of the season, as Dallas races towards the lottery. Doug McDermott and Kyle Collinsworth will likely eat into his playing time.

Wes Matthews (lower back tightness) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings. Similar to Dirk Nowitzki (ankle), he should be ready to roll after getting a night off on Tuesday. Matthews is worth owning, but his value could trend down as the season progress since the Mavs will have some incentive to get their younger players more involved. Doug McDermott and Kyle Collinsworth lose some value with Matthews expected back.

Wesley Matthews matched his season-high with seven triples vs. the Clippers on Monday, finishing with 23 points in 34 minutes. This was his third game of the season with seven triples, and he also racked up five assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal on 7-of-16 shooting. Matthews had more on his plate tonight with Harrison Barnes (ankle) out, and it was nice to see him snap out of a funk after scoring in single digits in two out of his previous four games. He's a name to watch at the deadline, but his contract won't be easy to move.

Wesley Matthews    G/F  Mavericks

 

 

Matthews scored six points (2-17 FG, 0-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five steals, four rebounds, three assists and a block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 102-88 loss to the Suns. The veteran wing finds himself in a brutal slump, shooting 32.1 percent (17-for-53) from the floor and 18.2 percent (4-for-22) from three-point range over the last four games. Matthews has been able to soften the blow to his fantasy value on the defensive end, and he should find his shot again sooner or later, but in most formats if he's not draining threes, he's not worth an active roster spot.

Wesley Matthews scored 16 points with four rebounds, three assists, one block, five steals and one turnover on 2-of-17 from the field against the Suns on Wednesday. Well, he ends January on a down note offensively, but those steals work. Matthews had a strong month before this, averaging 16.2 points, 3.8 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 treys in 35.1 minutes per game during this previous January outings. He's also reportedly on the trade block, but the Mavs may have a tough time getting a first-round pick in the deal. He's worth holding in standard leagues.

Matthews finished with 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 95-88 loss to the Heat. Matthews was effective on both ends of the court, tallying solid stats in the process. He is in the midst of his best month of the season (by far), and the Mavericks appear intent on showcasing the veteran wing in hopes that a playoff contender will make a decent offer. Fantasy owners will likely have to hope that doesn't come to fruition, as his value would almost certainly take a hit.
