Delon Wright

Fantasy News

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Courtney Lee
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Courtney Lee started on Tuesday night, finishing with two points and two steals in 22 minutes.

    Great. We definitely wouldn't have rather seen Delon Wright (7-4-4 with a steal and a triple in 19 minutes) get some of this playing time instead. Lee will drop from the rotation when Seth Curry returns from his ankle sprain, and Wright remains the reserve guard of choice on the Mavs.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry (sprained left ankle) will remain out for Tuesday's contest vs. the Spurs.

    Curry will miss his second consecutive game on Tuesday. This is unfortunate as Curry was red-hot over over the last month, producing mid-round value over that span. Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Delon Wright are candidates for more minutes while Seth is sidelined. Curry's next chance to play will be on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright had another solid game off the bench on Friday, finishing with 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals in the Mavs' drubbing of the Grizzlies.

    His value has fluctuated dramatically throughout the season and he is currently on one of his better stretches, having reached top-100 value in his past four games. He's seen more minutes lately and always seems to do more when he gets a bigger opportunity to shine. Wright is a deployable guard in deep leagues but seems like more of a streaming option other than that, especially if Luka Doncic misses a game for any reason.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) will miss Friday's tilt with the Grizzlies.

    Dorian Finney-Smith carries some intrigue when he's healthy for his ability to fill up the boxscore. He's more of a 16-team option when he's on the floor so for now, you can drop him outside of deep leagues. With Finney-Smith out alongside Tim Hardaway Jr., the Mavs will be turning to Seth Curry more often. Delon Wright should also have more minutes if he is able to increase his usage.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Dončić (illness) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Grizzlies.

    Dončić was sent home on Thursday and was unable to practice. We should learn more regarding the young All-Star's availability Friday afternoon. Seth Curry, Delon Wright, Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.J. Barea could all see increased value if Luka misses the game. It is worth noting that Barea and Hardaway are also questionable for the contest.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith (right hip) will not return on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Finney-Smith is a top-150 player on the season who brings average production in multiple categories. His upside is low enough that he isn't worth holding in standard leagues if you are in the playoffs or fighting for a playoff spot. Seth Curry should see increased value and Delon Wright could be a streaming option in 14-team leagues, but he is hard to trust.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith (right hip) is questionable to return on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Finney-Smith is a late-round player on the season who produces in multiple categories but isn't great in any single category. Seth Curry will see a boost in value and is a strong standard-league value, while Delon Wright may have streaming value but it is hard to trust him with the way Coach Carlisle uses him.

  • J.J. Barea
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea (right ankle soreness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Seth Curry continues to be considered questionable as well. Delon Wright should be in the mix for greater usage if either Barea or Curry cannot play. While Barea is a decent playmaker, his role has been fairly limited.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry (lower back tightness) will not play during Monday's game.

    He was previously considered questionable.
    Delon Wright is likely to soak up some of his minutes versus the Bulls.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright started for Luka Doncic on Sunday and came away with four points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals in 32 minutes.

    A 2-of-9 shooting line was the major blemish here, but Wright's fantasy appeal has always stemmed from his ability to stuff the box score outside of the scoring column. JJ Barea was initially slated to start but came off the bench, chipping in seven assists in 17 minutes. Wright is the better play whenever Doncic sits and is a borderline 12-team option while Barea is just an assists specialist.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Dončić (left thumb sprain) is questionable heading into Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Dončić injured his thumb during the first half of Wednesday's game but was able to play through the injury. With Jalen Brunson (shoulder) already ruled out, Delon Wright, J.J. Barea and Seth Curry will all see increased value if Dončić sits out.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luke Doncic (right ankle soreness) will play during Monday's game.

    Doncic had been listed as probable after missing Saturday's matchup. Jalen Brunson is out due to an injury, with Delon Wright and J.J. Barea able to provide reserve minutes.

  • Jalen Brunson
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Jalen Brunson (right shoulder sprain) will miss at least the next five games.

    Brunson has been ruled out for the current road trip. Luka Doncic is expected to return with Delon Wright playing some backup minutes.
