Boban Marjanovic was extremely efficient (5-for6 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs) on Tuesday, producing 12 points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 16 minutes vs. the Clippers.
With Dwight Powell likely lost for the season, Marjanovic should see a few extra minutes. And that's really all he needs to provide decent fantasy value. However, even with Kristaps Porzingis out for the past ten games, Boban played in just six. Keep in mind that he's unlikely to play in nearly every game even if his minutes get bumped into the 15-minute range.

Boban Marjanovic double-doubled for the second time in three games on Tuesday with 13 points (6-for-14 FGs) and 11 rebounds in 20 minutes vs. the Warriors.
Don't do it. You want to pick Boban up because he's so much fun and can pile up stats at an incredible rate. But unless you're in a very deep league, he's just going to hurt you unless you stream him for the right game. This was the second-highest minute total for Marjanovic this season, too.

Boban Marjanovic headed to the locker room on Saturday with a right knee injury.
Boban had nine points in seven minutes before leaving the game. Boban is barely in the rotation most nights and there is little fantasy impact if he misses time.

Boban Marjanovic registered 14 points (5-for-9 shooting) and 10 rebounds in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Marjanovic and Seth Curry (16 points, three triples, two assists and a steal) where the only two players to score in double figures off the Mavs bench. With Kristaps Porzingis injured and the supersized Lakers in town, Marjanovic needed only 10 minutes to notch the double-double.

With Kristaps Porzingis sitting Thursday night's game, there was enough for the Mavs' bigs to eat and Boban Marjanovic got a taste of 13 minutes on the floor, producing 10 points and seven rebounds.
Porzingis is expected back next week, so Boban could be a low-end streaming option in deep leagues for a couple of games. Other than that, his season-long outlook isn't as big as he is in real-life. Sadly.

Boban Marjanovic produced a decent line on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with five rebounds and an assist.
Marjanovic had a solid game, but it's the same story with him, not enough minutes. He's averaging 11.0 minutes a game and is nothing more than a DFS or streamer play if Dwight Powell and Kristaps Porzingis both miss time.

Boban Marjanovic scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with five rebounds and one block in 16 minutes on Saturday.
Boban started with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) sitting out on Saturday. Marjanovic is tough to trust when the Mavs are healthy, but he is a player to spot start when the Mavs are missing a big.

Boban Marjanovic played well in 15 minutes on Sunday as he put up 12 points and eight rebounds on 6-of-11 shooting.
Maxi Kleber (sore right knee) was out for this one, so Marjanovic saw an increased role. He had a team-high plus-25. His role is limited when the team is healthy, but he could be worth a DFS spot start for games that Kleber, Dwight Powell or Kristaps Porzingis are out.
October 22, 2019, 1:59 pmDwight PowellPF, Dallas Mavericks
Dwight Powell (left hamstring strain) will not play in the Mavs next two games on Wednesday vs. the Wizards or Friday vs. the Pelicans at minimum.
Powell was already set to miss the first game, but now there's confirmation of missing the first two. There is hope that he can return soon after, but he hasn't practiced in full since October 5th. Maxi Kleber and Boban Majanovic are in line for an increase in minutes, and Kleber is worth a look.

Boban Marjanovic went for 16 points on 6-for-9 shooting and eight rebounds on Friday.
Marjanovic tends to put up numbers when he gets minutes, but his minutes are never predictable so it's pretty tough to find a use for him in fantasy.

Bogdan Bogdanovic finished with 32 points on 10-of-17 shooting and drained seven triples as Serbia topped Czech Republic 90-81 to finish in 5th place.
Bogdanovic also added four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block and was certainly one of the most impressive players in the tournament. Although he has the talent to be a successful full-time starter, the 27-year old will likely be relegated to a similar 25-27 minute, off-the-bench role he played last season with Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes and newly added Trevor Ariza also on the wings. Nikola Jokic also did his usual thing this game with seven points, 14 rebounds and seven assists. Boban Marjanovic and Nemanja Bejlica were not really involved in this one, playing only two and eight minutes, respectively.

Boban Marjanovic played just two minutes and registered three fouls and two turnovers, as Serbia lost to Argentina 97-87 in the World Cup Tournament.
Bobi committed a couple offensive fouls as Argentina went small-ball and made it difficult for the big guy to stay on the floor. Marjanovic played a lot in the first four games but he wasn’t a factor against Spain and Argentina finishing with averages of 7.2 points and 2.7 rebounds for the entire event. He is expected to be the backup center in Dallas and the Mavs are likely to use him based on the nightly matchups, making him an inconsistent fantasy option.
September 6, 2019, 12:52 pmNikola JokicC, Denver Nuggets
Nikola Jokic put up 14 points and 10 boards in 16 minutes of action as Serbia routed Puerto Rico 90-47 on Friday.
Jokic is always so quietly excellent, and he doesn't need to show off in heavy minutes against these weaker opponents. His teammate Boban Marjanovic was fantastic as well in a light 16 minutes with 16 points, four boards and a no-look assist.
