  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews (strained left hamstring) will workout before the game on Monday to test his hamstring before deciding on his status.

    Matthews was originally listed as doubtful, but the fact that he's going to test it out gives some hope to him playing. If he were to miss, Devin Harris and Dorian Finney-Smith may be in for heavy minutes with J.J. Barea (hamstring) and Dwight Powell (knee) both out. The Mavericks' starters could also see extra run in this game.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left knee effusion) will not play Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Powell was questionable Saturday before being upgraded and playing, but that is not the case this time around. Maxi Kleber, Dorian Finney-Smith and Harrison Barnes could all see an uptick in minutes without Powell.

  • J.J. Barea - G - Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea (groin muscle strain) will not play Monday against Memphis.

    Barea was originally questionable for this contest but has now been ruled out. The injury was originally an adductor strain but is now being called a groin strain. Given the proximity of the two, the change is likely just a formality. Devin Harris and Jalen Brunson should see the bulk of Barea's minutes while he is out.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left knee effusion) is questionable for Monday's contest.

    Powell was originally questionable on Saturday and played through it, so we would expect the same to happen today. If he were to miss, Maxi Kleber would get the biggest minutes increase.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews (strained left hamstring) is doubtful for Monday's game.

    Matthews did not play Saturday after being doubtful as well. With J.J. Barea (adductor) questionable for this game, the Mavericks wings could all pick up a few extra minutes. Devin Harris, Harrison Barnes and Dorian Finney-Smith would be the main beneficiaries, but it would not be a massive boost for any of them.

  • J.J. Barea - G - Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea (left adductor strain) is listed as questionable for Monday's game.

    Barea was already listed as questionable for this contest so we don't have a real update just yet. If he cannot go, it would mean more minutes for Devin Harris, Jalen Brunson and possibly Dennis Smith Jr. as well.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left knee effusion) is questionable to play on Monday.

    Powell was able to play through the injury on Saturday so we'll consider him likely to play despite the tag. Maxi Kleber would be the big beneficiary if Powell missed time.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews (left hamstring strain) is doubtful to play in Monday's game.

    Look for lots of Dorian Finney-Smith, who actually led the Mavs in minutes on Saturday night. We could also see more of Devin Harris with J.J. Barea (left adductor strain) questionable to play.

  • J.J. Barea - G - Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea is dealing with a left adductor strain and is questionable for Monday's matchup with the Grizzlies.

    Barea is questionable but adductor strains almost always force players to miss a game or two at least. If he can't go, Devin Harris would see a bump in minutes but the real winners for fantasy purposes would be the Mavs' other skill players, who won't be available on waivers.

  • Luka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic has been removed from the injury report.

    Doncic hurt his shoulder last Wednesday and was able to play on Saturday despite being listed as questionable in the lead up to the game. If you were still concerned about his injury, you don't need to be anymore.

  • Luka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (shoulder) helped the Mavs to a 112-109 win over the Warriors on Saturday night, going 9-for-20 from the field with 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Doncic is delivering top-45 value in 8-cat leagues and is top-90 in 9-cat formats, even with 3.9 turnovers a night. All that and he's averaging just 0.9 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. Doncic's ceiling is about as high as it gets and he'll be a joy to watch as he finds his footing in the league. That shoulder injury that landed him on the injury report is not a concern.

  • Harrison Barnes - F - Dallas Mavericks

    Harrison Barnes helped lead the Mavs to a win on Saturday night, tying his season-high with 23 points on 7-of-14 from the field against the Warriors.

    Barnes added eight boards and two threes but was off at the line, going just 7-of-11. He played some tough defense late and forced Kevin Durant into a tough shot in the final minute, and the win over his old squad will probably help him forget about any stat deficiencies tonight. Barnes should stroll his way to late-middle round value.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith - F - Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith led the Mavs in playing time on Saturday night, logging 40 minutes and delivering 13 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two threes.

    DFS made the most of Wesley Matthews' absence and is typically the fill-in of choice whenever one of the Mavs' starters has to miss time. That makes him worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues but he's generally not a great fantasy option.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left knee) played on Saturday night, posting seven points, four rebounds and a steal in 17 minutes.

    Powell was listed as probable but the Mavs never updated his status. He's fine going forward.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews (hamstring) has officially been ruled out of Saturday's game.

    Matthews was doubtful so this isn't overly surprising. Dallas' guards will get a few more minutes while players like Harrison Barnes and Dorian Finney-Smith may also get a little more time on the wing.
