Willie Cauley-Stein is still not with the team due to personal reasons and will sit out of Wednesday’s game vs. the Spurs.
Cauley-Stein had one of the best fantasy stretch of his career while playing starter-level minutes with the Warriors. Since joining the Mavs, Willie has started twice as the team was without Kristaps Porziņģis in both of those games. He played 25-plus minutes in both those games while he has yet to see more than 13 minutes when Kristaps is available. Therefore, it can be reasonably assumed that Willie is a low-end handcuff for Kristaps moving forward. Head coach Rick Carlisle told the media that Cauley-Stein might re-join the team ahead of Monday's game vs. the Bulls.
