With the Western Conference stacked full of former NBA MVPs, the Mavs and their fans have been more than okay with a full-on rebuild, especially when it has helped land Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. While 33…

Maxi Kleber is probable to start in Thursday's preseason finale vs. the Clippers.
Kleber is likely to be joined by Luka Dončić, Kristaps Porzingis, Courtney Lee and Delon Wright. With Dwight Powell hampered by a hamstring strain, Kleber is a strong candidate to look at in DFS lineups for Thursday's slate. Kleber could provide fantasy value at some point this season. He is someone to look at at the very end of drafts. Kleber should be on watch-lists if he is a free agent in your league.

Courtney Lee scored 14 points off the bench in Wednesday's regular season finale, hitting 6-of-9 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.
Lee had a mysterious neck issue while also being on the outs in New York one way or another before getting traded to the Mavs. He finished the year averaging 12.6 mpg in just 34 contests, which begs the question of what he has left, but a summer off to get healthy and a year away from the Knicks might lead to some sort of bounce-back.

Courtney Lee continues to be listed as questionable to face the Spurs on Wednesday because of a left hip contusion.
Lee missed the game against the Suns on Tuesday and it looks unlikely that he plays tonight and risks any further damage to his hip. The Mavs will rely on Devin Harris, Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke as the fill-in shooting guards to close the season.

Courtney Lee has been added to the injury report and is questionable to face the Suns on Tuesday because of a left hip contusion.
Lee has taken on extra minutes with the Mavs dinged up lately, but we'd advise you to look elsewhere for threes and steals tomorrow unless the Mavs provide an early update on his status.

Courtney Lee came through with a season-high 21 points on Friday night, going 9-of-15 from the field while adding seven assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.
The steals tied a season-high, while the threes and assists were new season-highs. Lee started and played 30 minutes with Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson out, and fantasy owners should remember that he was a borderline top-100 guy for most of last season in New York. This year was never able to get off the ground because of his neck injury and subsequent burial with the Knicks, though Lee does have a track record of success if you're looking for a streaming target.

Courtney Lee started in place of Luka Doncic in Sunday's win against the Thunder but only scored nine points in 17 minutes of action.
Lee was not expected to have a big role despite the start. He carries more of a locker room presence for the team and is not on the fantasy radar.

Courtney Lee played his first game in a Mavs jersey this season on Friday vs. the Bucks and logged just four minutes with one rebound and one assist to his name.
Lee does not fit the Mavs' youth movement and will wind up being more of a locker room mentor for their young guys. He's not going to have much fantasy value this season and can be left on the wire.

Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Trey Burke and Kristaps Porzingis will not be with the Mavs on Saturday to face the Cavs.
All four new Mavs were scheduled to undergo physicals on Friday but there has been no word on the results and thus will not be playing on Saturday. Dallas is extremely short handed so Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson are DFS guys to look at.

Courtney Lee is not looking to be bought out by the Mavs and is excited to get a chance to play.
Lee missed most of the season's early portion because of a mysterious neck injury and has been only a fringe rotation player for the Knicks even after getting healthy. He's still a quality 3-and-D guard, and while today's trade might point towards the Mavs looking to next year and potentially letting Lee join a contender, it sounds as though he's ready to get back to regular playing time. While Lee is unlikely to carve out a massive role, he was a solid player for 12-team leagues last season with the Knicks and should be watched closely in deep leagues in case he becomes one of the top wing options in the second unit.

Courtney Lee has been traded to the Mavs.
Lee was moved in the Knicks' effort to clear salary cap room for this summer, and attaching him to a budding superstar got another team to bite. Lee probably isn't in line for much playing time in Dallas, who have turned their eyes to the future with today's trade. We'd imagine that Dorian Finney-Smith and Jalen Brunson would hold priority over Lee in the rotation, especially if the Mavs fade in the playoff race.

Courtney Lee started for Tim Hardaway Jr. (illness) on Thursday against the Bucks, scoring nine points on 4-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and three steals over 23 minutes.
Lee can be a late-round player with a heavy bent toward 9-cat formats, but he has to be at full usage with no major hiccups. He's not close to that playing for a Knicks team that's actively trying to deal him.

Courtney Lee will miss the game against the Cavs tomorrow as he will be with the Westchester Knicks of the G-League in Lakeland, Florida.
Lee is expected to rejoin the Knicks in Charlotte on Friday. This is basically his preseason as he is trying to get into game shape after missing the beginning of the year with a neck injury. He has no fantasy value this year and the team will likely shop him around the league once he is back to full speed.

The Knicks have sent Courtney Lee for a stint with their G-League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.
Lee does not fit the Knicks' youth movement and can be forgotten in fantasy for the foreseeable future.

The Knicks Twitter account has announced that Courtney Lee is officially available for Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Lee has been out with a neck injury since late September and is yet to play in a game this season so he will likely be worked in slowly. He has always been an efficient, under-the-radar player in fantasy but can be left left on the waiver wire for now as there really isn't much upside and at best would produce late-round value. The Knicks will surely be shopping him but in the meantime he may hurt the playing time of Damyean Dotson and Allonzo Trier.
