  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry (right knee soreness) is being listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game versus the Hawks.

    Curry cooled off on Friday with only six points in 28 minutes after being on fire in the previous six games. With Luka Doncic already sitting in this back-to-back game, the Mavs may end up relying on Tim Hardaway Jr., Delon Wright, Jalen Brunson and J.J. Barea to handle all the backcourt minutes if Curry sits.

    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry will be able to play through his left knee tightness for Friday's showdown against the Wizards.

    It was just a two-game absence for Curry. Kristaps Porzingis (nose) will also be active for this one so Curry is more of a streaming option for this game. J.J. Barea is also active on Friday, now that he is able to overcome his sprained left ankle. Barea is always a high risk-reward option while Luka Doncic is out.

    J.J. Barea (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable ahead of Friday's game with the Wizards.

    The oft-injured veteran started in the first game sans Luka Doncic (ankle), but went down early during Monday's win against the Pacers. If Barae can't go, there will be extra minutes to go around for Jalen Brunson, Delon Wright, Ryan Broekhoff and possibly Seth Curry (questionable).

    J.J. Barea will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle.

    With Barea sidelined and Luka Dončić (ankle) out, Delon Wright and Jalen Brunson will continue to have streaming appeal on Wednesday.

    J.J. Barea (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Barea unexpectedly got the start for the first game sans Luka Doncic (ankle) but went down after only nine minutes on Monday. If Barea can't go, more minutes will be available for Jalen Brunson and Delon Wright.

    J.J. Barea (left ankle sprain) will not return to Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Barea's night comes to an end with just a 3-pointer and a turnover on 1-of-4 shooting in nine minutes. We should have an update from the Mavs after the game.

  • J.J. Barea
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea started Friday's loss against the Rockets and racked up 11 points (on 4-of-10 FG), nine assists and five rebounds.

    Barea got the opportunity to start in place of the injured Luka Dončić and played well in his absence. With Dončić expected to miss at least five more games, expect Barea and Ryan Broekhoff to continue to see more playing time. Barea is only worth a look if you're in need of specific stats in deeper leagues and once Dončić comes back, Barea's an immediate drop.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis had arguably his best game of the season in Friday's 128-121 road loss against the Rockets, scoring 35 points and snagging 12 boards.

    He also had three defensive stats (two steals and a block) and seemed to fare just fine with Luka Dončić on the sidelines. Porzingis did a lot of damage from the FT stripe tonight, getting there 13 times and making ten of them. If he continues to play well in Dončić's stead, Porzingis could become a sell-high candidate. Keep an eye on him over the next week.

  • J.J. Barea
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea has joined the Mavs starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rockets.

    With Luka Doncic out for the next six games due to an ankle sprain, several Mavs are bound to benefit, including Barea as the starting point guard. Ryan Broekhoff may also see more minutes now that he is in the starting lineup, but we have still not seen him emerge with a significant role for fantasy purposes. Barea makes sense as a streaming option while he is starting, but the Mavs' rotations are going to get creative as Rick Carlisle goes with the hot hands.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim MacMahon of ESPN has reported that Dončić will miss at least their next two games with a right ankle sprain.

    This news will rule out Dončić of their back-to-back that has them face the Rockets on Friday and the Hawks on Saturday. Although Luka has only been ruled out of those two games, he may miss additional time. When he suffered a sprain in December, he missed four games as a result. Jalen Brunson, Delon Wright, Seth Curry and J.J. Barea could all see additional time while Dončić is sidelined.

  • Tim Hardaway Jr.
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. is questionable to face the Rockets on Friday as he deals with a lower back injury.

    The Mavs could be without both of their starting guards in Friday's affair as Luka Dončić (right ankle) has already been ruled out. If Hardaway Jr. does miss the game, Seth Curry would be the most likely candidate to start alongside Jalen Brunson while Delon Wright, J.J. Barea and Justin Jackson could all see additional minutes off the bench.

    J.J. Barea got some extra run in garbage time on Tuesday and he finished with 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting, two rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes vs. the Suns.

    Barea has been in and out of the lineup lately and he can be left alone in fantasy leagues. Jalen Brunson closed out the game and totaled 15 points (5-of-7 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes.

  • J.J. Barea
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    J.J. Barea (illness) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game against the Lakers.

    Barea has not shown to be a fantasy relevant player when the Mavs backcourt rotation is at full strength. He is only worth a look in 30-team leagues unless something forces him up the depth chart.

    JJ Barea (illness) is questionable to face the Lakers on Friday.

    Barea didn't appear in Wednesday's game and his playing time has been trending down with the Mavs returning to fuller health. He's only a deep-league option for assists.

  • J.J. Barea
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    JJ Barea started and tallied nine assists with 11 points in 33 minutes on Saturday.

    Barea is starting with Tim Hardaway Jr. out and played more minutes than Jalen Brunson (two points in 14 minutes) and Seth Curry (12 points in 26 minutes). Barea can be streamed for assists while Hardaway Jr. is out but has little long-term value and won't be a factor outside of 30-team leagues when the Mavs are healthy.
