Seth Curry put up 16 points off the bench in Friday's win over the Blazers, rounding out his night by going 6-of-14 from the field with four rebounds, three assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
The Blazers are dropping like flies and probably miss Curry quite a bit. He's been up and down this season but his mix of threes and relatively sound efficiency, plus some timely hot streaks, have him sitting with top-200 value. The Dallas bench can be volatile from night to night and in this game it was Curry and Jalen Brunson (13 points, one steal, one 3-pointer) well ahead of Delon Wright (3-5-4 in 15 minutes). Wright remains the best fantasy option of the bunch even if he didn't show it tonight.

Delon Wright (left foot soreness) has been upgraded to probable ahead of Saturday's game against the Hornets.
Wright is putting up top-100 numbers even though playing on 20.6 minutes per game on the season. His role did not change with Tim Hardaway missing Thursday's game or when Luka Doncic missed time earlier this year and although the lack of minutes is a bit disappointing, he is still worth a roster spot in most standard leagues mostly for his steals, low turnovers and strong percentages.

Delon Wright is now questionable for Saturday's Mavs-Hornets tilt due to left foot soreness.
This is a new injury for Wright that you will have to circle back to check on before Saturday's game tips off. With Tim Hardaway Jr. also questionable the Mavs could be rather shorthanded. Seth Curry, Justin Jackson and Jalen Brunson would seem best suited to benefit.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will not play against the Nets on Thursday as he continues to recover from a left hamstring strain.
With Hardaway Jr. ruled out, look for Seth Curry, Delon Wright, Justin Jackson and Jalen Brunson as streaming options depending on team needs. They will all also have some DFS appeal depending on their price tags.

Delon Wright was able to produce seven points, three rebounds, two assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 26 minutes on Tuesday.
Sadly, Wright's steals streak came to an end here. It had been eight straight games with a steal,with 21 total in that span. Despite failing to meet lofty preseason expectations, Wright should be on rosters in all standard leagues. Seth Curry also played 26 minutes with Tim Hardaway Jr. out and was good for nine points, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers, though he shot 3-for-13 to get there.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left hamstring strain) is being listed s out for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
With Hardaway sitting, Delon Wright, Seth Curry, J.J. Barea and Justin Jackson will all see a bit more time. With top-85 per game value in 9-cat leagues on the year, Delon Wright seems like the best bet of the group for however much time Hardaway ends up missing.

Delon Wright was solid in 19 minutes off the bench on Sunday, tallying 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, one trey, three assists and three steals.
Despite his ups and downs throughout the season, Wright has managed to settle into a low-end holding pattern, making him a fringe play in standard leagues but worth a hold in deeper ones.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will miss the rest of Sunday's contest with the Lakers due to the hamstring injury he suffered in the first quarter.
Seth Curry replaced Hardaway on the floor after he headed to the locker room. Curry and Delon Wright will be the biggest beneficiaries if THJ is out for an extended period. Wright has had a lackluster season but he has been coming on of late and is worth a speculative add if you are in need of steals, 3-pointers and decent assists.

Delon Wright scored 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 22 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Warriors.
Wright has held on to the rope in fantasy leagues despite what has appeared to be dire straights for much of the season. He has been a top-90 play when on the floor in 9-cat leagues.

Delon Wright had a productive outing on Thursday despite the return of Luka Doncic and was good for 12 points (5-of-11 shooting), five rebounds, four dimes, two 3s and three steals.
This is a reminder of the inherent talent that Wright has. Unfortunately, he's unable to bring games like this to the table on a nightly basis, keeping him as someone to own in 16-team leagues or deeper at the moment.

Delon Wright was able to play through his finger sprain again on Sunday, but went 1-of-7 from the field for five points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 19 minutes.
Wright got a nice ovation in his return to Toronto but didn't have a great game. The fact that he's playing through his injury (he was listed probable today) is the big takeaway, and he remains a late-round option in standard leagues. Seth Curry (back) was also able to play through his injury and put up one point and four assists, shooting 0-for-7 in 18 minutes. Curry's more of a 14-team player, though he does have some explosive potential when the shot is on.

Delon Wright (finger sprain) was able to play on Friday, turning in eight points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in 23 minutes.
Wright didn't look bothered at all and this is the sort of quality line that keeps him on the map in standard leagues, even if he is going to struggle to meet his ADP. It won't be what you envisioned at the start of the year but Wright belongs on rosters in all but the shallowest of leagues.

The Mavs anticipate that both Seth Curry (back) and Delon Wright (finger) will be in the lineup on Friday night.
Both players are technically questionable but it seems like you can pencil the guard duo into your lineups. They're safe bets for extra minutes and production with Luka Doncic out. Curry is the better bet for points and threes while Wright is the guy for assists and defensive numbers.

Delon Wright (right fifth finger sprain) is being listed as questionable for Friday vs. the 76ers.
This is a new one. Wright just cannot take advantage of his opportunities. He missed his shot in Toronto when Lowry went down and FVV overtook him in the rotation, and now he's allowed Jalen Brunson to do the same in Luka Doncic's stead. We still like Wright to emerge with decent value while Doncic nurses his ankle sprain, but it's been frustrating, to say the least. Check back in on Wright's status tomorrow and remember that he was a clear drop in standard leagues if not for Doncic's injury.

Seth Curry had another big night, going for 26 points (9-of-15 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), five boards, four dimes and four triples in 26 minutes off the bench in the Mavs win over the Bucks on Monday.
Like many rotation players on the Mavs this season, Curry's minutes haven't been consistent. But now with Luka Doncic (right ankle sprain) out for a while, Curry might be one of a couple Mavs to step up in a big way. Just two games back, Curry had 30 points, six threes and seven boards. He's worth a flier if he's still available in your league. Delon Wright played his normal allotment of minutes, but he made the most of it, putting up 13 points (5-of-6 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three rebounds, two assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.
