Wesley Matthews (ankle) is labeled with the questionable tag heading into Monday’s preseason opener against the Bucks, according to Earl K. Sneed.
Matthews sat out the Mavs intra-squad scrimmage last Friday with ankle soreness as well. The injury does not appear to be serious but the Mavs will likely be cautious with Matthews and let him rest up before the start of the season. Matthews value has taken a hit ever since his Achilles surgery and the addition of Dennis Smith Jr. and emergence of Seth Curry will cut into his role even more. Matthews is not an ideal target and can safely be avoided until the late rounds.
Update: Wesley Matthews (ankle) is expected to play on Monday against the Bucks according to Earl K. Sneed.
