Mavericks News

J.J. Barea    G  Mavericks

 

 

J.J. Barea played 26 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds and eight assists on Monday. Barea has come off the bench in three of his four games this season and Dennis Smith Jr. was back in action tonight. JJB is averaging 13.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 2.0 3-pointers on the season, and while he'll take a hit once Devin Harris (personal) and Seth Curry (leg) are back, he does look like a sneaky DFS play and possibly a short-term fix in deeper standard leagues.

Nerlens Noel    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

Nerlens Noel played just 12 minutes and hit 3-of-7 shots for eight points, seven rebounds and two steals in Monday's loss to the Warriors. Noel was a hot pickup after his debut on Wednesday that featured 16 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks on 6-of-6 shooting. However, he's been coming off the bench, hasn't played more than 16 minutes in his last two games, hasn't blocked a shot in two games and hasn't scored more than eight points in his last three. He's being used for matchup purposes by Rick Carlisle, which means he wasn't really needed against the Kings, Rockets or Warriors. The Mavs get the Grizzlies on Wednesday, which should mean a few more minutes for the big man. We still think he's worth holding onto, especially if Dirk Nowitzki doesn't pick it up soon, but it's been a rough ride over the last three games.

Wesley Matthews    G/F  Mavericks

 

 

Wesley Matthews hit 7-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 19 points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 34 minutes of Monday's loss to the Warriors. This was the first time in four games he's shot it well from the floor and this was one of his better games of the season. If you throw out Friday's 0-for-7 dud in which he failed to score, Matthews is playing pretty well. He's a hold in most fantasy leagues.

Dennis Smith Jr.    G  Mavericks

 

 

Dennis Smith Jr. returned from his knee injury and hit 3-of-11 shots and just 4-of-10 free throws for 10 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes. He also missed both his 3-pointers, but the good news is he played after sitting out a couple games. He struggled tonight, and the six missed FTs are certainly a concern, but he still has a solid handle on the starting point guard job, so don't let this game bring you down. He also tried to dunk on Draymond Green while talking trash, to which Green replied "That s--- ain't happening."

Dirk Nowitzki    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

Dirk Nowitzki hit 4-of-12 shots and zero 3-pointers for a season-high 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 29 minutes on Monday. He was just 1-of-9 on Saturday, has yet to hit half his shots in a game, hasn't scored more than 11 points and simply looks old. The numbers aren't good and while there's still a chance he'll get it going at some point, if there's a hot free agent you've got your eye on, you can probably live without Dirk, who is shooting just 30 percent through four games.

Dennis Smith Jr.    G  Mavericks

He joins Yogi Ferrell, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki in the starting lineup. J.J. Barea will move to the bench and can be dropped in most leagues if DSJ comes out of this game without any setbacks.
