  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Mark Cuban holds an optimistic view regarding the return of NBA games, saying on Monday that "Hopefully by the middle of May, we're starting to get back to normal and the NBA is playing games."

    Cuban's optimism is sure to get hopes up among NBA fans, but there's obviously immense uncertainty and plenty of hurdles to clear before the NBA season can continue. If you want something to grab onto to keep spirits up, though, Cuban also mentioned that he "would say that the over/under would be June 1" and that he's taking the under.

  • Jalen Brunson
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Jalen Brunson underwent surgery on his torn labrum on Friday and has no timetable for a return.

    The original plan was for Brunson to rehab the injury so he could return later on this season, but with the league stoppage for a minimum of 30 days underway it made sense to proceed with the surgery at this time. It is still not clear how long it will take Brunson to return to the floor as he recovers from the procedure.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright scored 10 points with nine rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in 28 minutes on Wednesday.

    Wright has shown the ability to post well-rounded lines with big steal numbers when he is given the minutes. The minutes were there tonight, so the production followed.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic scored 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting with six rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 40 minutes on Wednesday.

    Doncic shot 6-of-11 from the free throw line but was still able to lead the Mavs to a win vs. the Nuggets. Doncic is a superstar in the NBA at the young age of 21 and he is a joy to watch every time he takes the floor.

  • Boban Marjanovic
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Boban Marjanovic dominated the Nuggets in a start on Wednesday, scoring 31 points on 12-of-20 shooting with 17 rebounds in 31 minutes.

    He also shot 7-of-8 from the line and added two steals. Marjanovic balled out tonight in a spot start for Kristaps Porzingis (rest).

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) is available to play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Kidd-Gilchrist has a limited role in Dallas and can be left on the waiver wire in all formats.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) will be available vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Kristaps Porzingis (rest) will not play on Wednesday, which could give Cauley-Stein some deep-league streaming appeal. His role is too small in Dallas to trust him and he should be left on waiver wires after tonight's game.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith (sore hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Nuggets.

    Finney-Smith played in Tuesday's game after missing the previous two contests with hip soreness. Wednesday's game comes on the second half of a back-to-back so the team is likely exercising caution with Finney-Smith. His next chance to take the court will be on Saturday vs. the Suns. Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson will see additional minutes with this news.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith has been downgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup vs. the Nuggets as he nurses a sore hip.

    This news doesn't bode well for Finney-Smith's availability for Wednesday. If he gets ruled out, look for Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson to pick up additional minutes. Kleber is definitely worth streaming in standard leagues regardless of Finney-Smith's status.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Dončić is no longer listed on the injury report with a wrist injury and will play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Dončić did appear to be bothered by his right wrist at times during Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs but it didn't stop him from having an excellent game. Expect the Slovenian All-Star to take on his usual role within the offense as the Mavs face a tough Nuggets squad. Lock and load him in lineups across all formats.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

    Even with Kristaps Porzingis out against the Nuggets, Kidd-Gilchrist has done nothing to merit fantasy ownership.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game.

    Cauley-Stein has played sparingly for the Mavs. Assuming he is cleared to play, he should see more action with Kristaps Porzingis resting versus the Nuggets.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry (sprained left ankle) will not play during Wednesday's contest.

    Curry was injured on Friday and hasn't played since. Tim Hardaway Jr. is likely to see heavy usage again while Delon Wright keeps his expanded reserve role.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (rest) will not play during Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

    This is a second half of a back-to-back, so the Mavs aren't taking any chances with Porzingis and his knee. Despite two consecutive disappointing showings, he has averaged 22.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 2.8 blocks over his last eight games. Look for Maxi Kleber to step up in his absence.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic was outstanding yet again on Tuesday night, cooking up 38 points on 13-of-26 shooting, seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers.

    All this through a right wrist sprain, too. Doncic remains Dallas' primary source of just about everything, and it's been a delight to watch him grow by leaps and bounds as a fantasy asset. His percentages have both jumped notably, and that Doncic has managed to improve his FG% by almost 3.5 percentage points despite an increase of almost four shots per game is truly remarkable. We can't wait to see him in the NBA playoffs, much like his fantasy GMs can't wait to watch him in theirs.
