    Jalen Brunson underwent surgery on his torn labrum on Friday and has no timetable for a return.

    The original plan was for Brunson to rehab the injury so he could return later on this season, but with the league stoppage for a minimum of 30 days underway it made sense to proceed with the surgery at this time. It is still not clear how long it will take Brunson to return to the floor as he recovers from the procedure.

    Jalen Brunson has confirmed he has a torn labrum and that he has no timetable for a return.

    Brunson's focus is on recovering from the injury so he can make a return this season to help the Mavs in the postseason, and off season surgery is on the table. It's a tough break for Brunson, who should be dropped in all leagues unless he is a deep dynasty format stash. The outlook for Delon Wright and J.J. Barea remains a bit rosier with this news.

    Tim MacMahon of ESPN has reported that the Mavs fear Jalen Brunson has a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will play through the rest of the regular season but post-season surgery is a possibility.

    Brunson has given the Mavs a good rotation guard off the bench this season but is off the fantasy radar outside of deeper leagues.

  • Luka Doncic

    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 (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.

    Jalen Brunson (right shoulder) is being listed as out for Monday's contest against the Wolves.

    Luka Doncic is expected to return from a one-game absence on Monday, so Brunson would not have gotten much run anyway. Delon Wright might receive a small bump in minutes Monday with Brunson out.

    Jalen Brunson (right shoulder sprain) has been ruled out for the rest of Saturday's game.

    Brunson leaves after scoring two points on the first play of the night. With him now out of commission, Delon Wright will be able to get a lot of run and will be in line for a big night.

    Early into the action in Saturday's game, Jalen Brunson took a spill and hurt his shoulder, forcing him to head to the locker room.

    Ouch. Brunson started in this one for Luka Doncic (ankle). If he's unable to return, the Mavs will lean on Delon Wright, Seth Curry and maybe old man J.J. Barea.

  • 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.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luke Doncic (right ankle soreness) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Doncic missed seven games with the injury earlier this month so the Mavs are likely being cautious as this is the second game of a back-to-back. With Kristaps Porzingis also ruled out for this one and Seth Curry questionable, the Mavs will need to find offense elsewhere. Jalen Brunson will likely replace Doncic in the starting lineup while Tim Hardaway Jr. will be expected to take on much of the scoring load for Saturday's game.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Doncic told reporters earlier Tuesday that he will play in this one, and getting the questionable tag a day in advance is a step in the right direction. Look for more information as tip-off gets closer on Wednesday, but it seems like the young superstar is ready to return. Jalen Brunson would move back to the bench and can be dropped in all leagues.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Mavs coach Rick Carlisle shared that he is "hopeful" that Luka Doncic (right ankle sprain) returns on Wednesday.

    Carlisle also said that he expects Doncic to draw either a "questionable" or "probable" tag, which at this point makes it sound like a mere formality that he'll play. It's strange that the Mavs want Doncic to get one game in before the All-Star break, but fantasy managers aren't complaining. Luka Doncic had been fading before his most recent ankle injury as his percentages gradually regressed to his rookie-year averages, but feel free treat him as a buy-low candidate still. He won't be for very long.

    Jalen Brunson dished out six assists in a loss to the Jazz on Monday while adding eight points on 3-of-7 shooting and two rebounds in 26 minutes in what could be his final start in place of Luka Doncic.

    Brunson had a 3-pointer taken off the board due to his coach getting a technical at the same moment, unfortunately. Brunson has been a borderline-startable player in 12-team leagues while Doncic has been out, but that run is either over now or will be after the all-star break, so prepare for life without a starting Brunson.

    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Jalen Brunson scored 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and three triples in 27 minutes on Saturday.

    Brunson has standard-league value while Luka Doncic is out and averaged 17.8 points, 5.3 assists and 1.5 threes in the four games prior to Saturday. Brunson can be rostered in the short term but should return to the waiver wire once Luka returns.

  • Jalen Brunson
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Jalen Brunson was productive once again on Wednesday with a 20-point bounce-back performance on 6-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, six dimes and three treys.

    Brunson is coming off a nine-point dud on Monday, but scored 27 points before that. There's clearly some up-and-down trend here. Despite the variance, Brunson is worth a hold while Luka Doncic remains sidelined.
