Mavericks News

Dennis Smith Jr.    G  Mavericks

 

 

Dennis Smith Jr. scored 17 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday. The bad news is he made just 6-of-15 from the field and 4-of-9 from the line in this loss. Smith Jr. has really played well since his triple-double 16 games ago back on Dec. 29 and he's hit double-digit scoring in each. It's becoming very clear DSJ has his coach's trust late in the game and he scored seven points in the final four minutes. In his last 15 games, DSJ has a whopping 31.0 usage rate and a 64.1 TS%. Expect a strong finish, especially if he can up his percentages early in games.

Wesley Matthews    G/F  Mavericks

 

 

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.

Yogi Ferrell    G  Mavericks

 

 

Yogi Ferrell scored 13 points with two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday. The Mavs are hopeful that J.J. Barea (oblique) will be back for Saturday night, so Yogi's minutes could be dropping soon. Plus, Dennis Smith Jr. playing well lately really caps Ferrell's upside.

Maxi Kleber    F  Mavericks

 

 

Maxi Kleber moved to the bench with two points, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 14 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday. Dwight Powell looked pretty comfortable in his first start and coach Rick Carlisle keeps yo-yoing Kleber. It's really tough to count on him in fantasy.

Dwight Powell    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

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    F/C  Mavericks

 

 

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.

Maxi Kleber    PF  Mavericks

 

 

Kleber will come off the bench Wednesday against the Suns. Kleber will head to the bench as the Mavericks reward Dwight Powell with his first start of the season following a double-digit effort on the glass Monday. He should split minutes with Powell at power forward.

Dwight Powell    PF  Mavericks

 

 

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.

J.J. Barea    G  Mavericks

 

 

J.J. Barea (oblique) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday. He is going to do some individual workouts today, practicing on Friday, and hopefully he'll be playing on Saturday against the Kings. With him out, Devin Harris should pick up minutes while Dennis Smith Jr. and Yogi Ferrell should be busy in a plus matchup.

J.J. Barea    PG  Mavericks

 

 

Barea (oblique) is out for Wednesday's tilt against the Suns, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. Barea will miss a third straight game Wednesday as he continues to deal with a left oblique strain. In his stead, Yogi Ferrell and Dennis Smith should continue seeing some uptick in workload and usage.
