    Dwight Powell (left hamstring strain) is progressing but has been ruled out for the remainder of the preseason.

    The Mavs haven't said anything in the way of a potential timetable for return, but this is concerning for fantasy managers. Powell's draft stock is slipping, and though he's still a recommended late-round target that now comes with the caveat that you could be without his services for an undetermined length of time. Maxi Kleber figures to be the big beneficiary and is a nice source of steals, blocks and threes, so he's definitely worth a look in 14-teamers. Boban Marjanovic also stands to benefit in specific matchups but he's more of a streaming play.

    Dwight Powell (left hamstring strain) will sit out of Friday's exhibition game vs. the Bucks.

    Powell was already ruled out of the first two preseason games and will miss his next opportunity on Friday. The Mavs have not made this injury sound serious. Powell will get his next opportunity on Monday against the Thunder. He will enter his sixth NBA season with some sleeper-appeal.

    Dwight Powell (left hamstring strain) will not play in the Mavericks' first two preseason games.

    The fact the team is giving a timetable of two games is a good sign. It it were more serious they would not even consider playing Powell in any preseason games and letting him rest.

    Rick Carlisle again emphasised that Dwight Powell and Kristaps Porzingis make sense starting next to each other on Tuesday.

    It sure looks like more confirmation that Powell will be the starting C next to the Unicorn this year. Powell is a reliable big man to consider in the back-end of standard drafts for his steady value.

    Dwight Powell withdrew from Canada's FIBA World Cup squad to focus on the upcoming NBA season.

    This has been a common trend for a number of players. Canada also lost R.J. Barrett recently as well, so their ranks are thinner going into the tournament.

    According to Marc Stein, the Mavs and Dwight Powell reach an agreement in principle on a three-year $33 million extension that kicks in the 2020-21 season.

    The Mavs have made it clear that Powell is an important part of their future plans and this extension is a concrete sign of good faith. He's going to see minutes at both the four and five positions, allowing him and his low-key production to fly under most radars once again next season.

    The Mavericks intend to offer Dwight Powell a three-year $33 million contract extension when free agency opens according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

    The two sides have long made it known that they would like to work towards a long term deal and Stein went on to say that both sides are expected to quickly agree to it. For the most part of second half of the year, Powell was Dallas' second best player behind Luka Doncic. While that doesn't figure to be the case with Kristaps Porzingis set to return to game action, Powell will undoubtedly be large part of Dallas' foundation moving forward.

    Dwight Powell officially opted into the final year of his contract with the Mavs for $10.2 million, with both sides hoping to agree to an extension in July.

    Powell took offense to an earlier report from Yahoo! Sports that stated he would be turning down his player option, and now we have official word on why he was so upset. Powell's role next season is less certain with Kristaps Porzingis' imminent return and the Mavs having a ton of cap room available. Though, if the extension talks are accurate, we'd have to assume that Powell remains an important piece of the Mavs puzzle moving forward.

    Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News is hearing that Dwight Powell plans to opt-in to his $10,259,375 player option with the Mavs for next season.

    Powell, who yesterday denied an earlier report by Yahoo! Sports that he will decline the option, has until June 29 to make it official. It is uncertain what role Powell would have on the Mavs next season with the team looking to lock down Kristaps Porzingis in addition to having money to blow in free agency.

    Dwight Powell denied the validity of the Yahoo! Sports report that he will explore free agency on Tuesday, saying “I did not have any conversation prior to that article coming out with whoever wrote it. So I don’t know where the information came from. I didn’t have any conversation with anybody about that.”

    Powell was in Dallas on Tuesday to help dedicate a new Mavs Tech Center that will serve former foster youth, ages 16-24, as well as homeless youth in DISD schools. While it is certainly possible that Powell opts out and elects to hit the open market in search for a long-term contract, if we're going by his word, that decision has yet to be made.

    According to Chris Haynes, Dwight Powell will turn down his $10.2 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    At just 27 years old, Powell is likely looking to get a longer deal with more guaranteed money. However, there are a litany of fours and fives that could be on the market this summer, making this an interesting decision for Powell. With Kristaps Porzingis returning from injury, Powell may seek more minutes elsewhere. A return to Dallas is still certainly in the cards for him.

    Dwight Powell said on Thursday, "I definitely want to be here," but declined to say whether he would exercise his contract option with the Mavs this summer.

    Powell can always negotiate a multi-year deal even if he declines his option. With Kristaps Porzingis looking to make his return next season in a presumed feature role, Powell may opt to take the wait-and-see approach and weigh all his options.

    Dwight Powell cruised to the finish in Wednesday's finale against the Spurs, scoring seven points on 1-of-3 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds and two assists over 33 minutes.

    Powell was an early-to-mid round player (9/8 cat) over the last two months of the season as he got easy look after easy look playing with Luke Doncic. His efficiency has always been why we've had him on the fantasy radar, and he finally bucked the inconsistency that had plagued him in the past.

    Dwight Powell is not listed on Sunday's injury report.

    Powell got Friday night off for rest, but will now return with Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber both out. He should be in for a good game.
