    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 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.

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip soreness) returned from a two-game absence on Tuesday night and was good for 15 points, four rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    Finney-Smith went right back into the starting five and played 38 minutes, so he's no worse for wear after a few days off. Consider DFS a fine end-of-bench type in 12-team leagues, though his muted blend of multiple stats probably offers more utility in roto formats.

    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (right wrist pain) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) are expected to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Rick Carlise mentioned that he's afraid that Doncic's wrist is something that is going to continue to bother him for the rest of the season. Owners will just have to roll with it and hope that the young superstar will continue to push through the pain and suit up down the stretch.

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) is officially questionable for Tuesday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

    Finney-Smith is in jeopardy of missing his third straight game. The Mavs will already be without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) and Seth Curry (left ankle) so there is even more need for Finney-Smith. If he is unable to play, Justin Jackson and Courtney Lee will continue to see more minutes.

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) has been ruled out on Sunday.

    It'll be the second straight absence for DFS, which means we'll see some patchwork at the forward spots for Dallas today. Courtney Lee and Justin Jackson seem like beneficiaries with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out sick, but there's no pickup in standard leagues here.

    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.

    Dorian Finney-Smith is listed as gametime decision for Friday night's game against the Grizzlies.

    Keep an eye out for Finney-Smith's status leading up to tomorrow's game as he could be a sneaky contributor if he can suit up with Luka Doncic's status up in the air.

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) is considered day-to-day after leaving Wednesday's game, according to Tim MacMahon.

    It does not seem as if Finney-Smith will miss significant time. As a 3-and-D player who ranks just outside the top-150 he is not worth hanging on to. With the Mavericks back on the court tomorrow night expect Seth Curry and Maxi Kleber to see increased minutes if Finney-Smith misses any time.

    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 (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.

    Dorian Finney-Smith was able to deliver nine points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and a 4-of-6 shooting line on Sunday.

    Finney-Smith does a little bit of everything and has turned that mutli-cat ability into low-end appeal in standard formats. It's rarely this exciting with DFS but when you take a step back, the numbers are usually there in the long run.

    Dorian Finney-Smith did a bit of everything on Wednesday night, ending with 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3PT), four rebounds, one assist, two steal and three blocks.

    DFS has been checking many boxes across the categories for fantasy owners in recent outings. The defensive output tonight is particularly attractive, although not to be expected often. He is worth a look for teams that have an opening at the end of their roster.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (injury recovery, left knee) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

    This is the second game of a back-to-back so this was to be expected. Porzingis has been putting up elite fantasy numbers filling in as the primary scorer with Doncic out but the Mavs will have to rely on Maxi Kleber, Willie Cauley-Stein and Dorian Finney-Smith to hold down the frontcourt for this one with Boban Marjanovic likely to also get some minutes.

    Dorian Finney-Smith had a quiet yet still-productive outing on Wednesday, chipping in five points (2-of-9 shooting), five rebounds, one triple, three assists, one steal and one block.

    Considering DFS was coming off a reasonably solid double-double effort in his last game, tonight's line could be looked at as a bit of a letdown. That said, he still managed to check a lot of category boxes tonight, which helps float the value he's been treading over the last week and change.
