Dirk Nowitzki (right knee effusion) will not play on Wednesday against the Wolves and he is questionable for Friday’s matchup against the Thunder.
That’s water on the knee for those that don’t know and it’s not surprising for the knee he had surgery on to experience some swelling at his advanced age. Owners have gotten the best of it with Dirk this season and these types of hiccups were to be expected. Until we hear otherwise, this news doesn’t change the trajectory of his fantasy value. Dwight Powell will get a chance to step into some of the upside he has left untapped this season, and Charlie Villanueva will start and probably get about 15-20 minutes to hit a few threes.
