    Trey Burke put in a "pretty full" practice on Monday along with teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    Burke got his first practice in on Friday. Both he and Kidd-Gilchrist arrived in the bubble relatively recently. Neither are especially relevant in fantasy, although Burke could have a path to minutes with Jalen Brunson out for the rest of the season.

    Jalen Brunson logged 17.9 mpg across 57 games, including 16 starts, for the Mavs on his way to 279/289 per-game value before suffering a season ending shoulder injury that required surgery to repair his torn right labrum.

    Brunson saw his minutes decrease by almost four in his sophomore season with the Mavs as the team had their sights set on their first playoff appearance since 2015-16. Even though he saw fewer minutes, his stats remained consistent season over season: 8.2 points (-1.1), 2.4 rebounds (+0.1), 3.3 assists (+0.1), 0.4 steals (-0.1), 0.8 threes (-0.1) and 1.2 turnovers (+0.0) with .466/.358/.813 shooting splits. Brunson will likely continue to operate as the primary back-up point guard for the Mavs next season and his fantasy ceiling is likely around the top-225 in that role.

    Mavs guard Jalen Brunson (torn right labrum) won't be available for coach Rick Carlisle to deploy when the team resumes play in late July in Orlando.

    The last we heard about Brunson's injury came on May 1, and it wasn't any different. He still claims to be "out for the remainder of the season" and that has not changed even after the league announced in plans moving forward. Brunson had become a decent streamer for fantasy purposes whenever his name was penciled into the lineup for an injured starter but, at full strength, the Mavs don't ask too much (at least statistically) from Brunson. Regardless, everyone's fantasy season is over, at least if you're using a major fantasy site.

    Jalen Brunson (torn labrum) said he is still "ruled out of the remainder of the season".

    Brunson had surgery on March 13th and had a time table of four-to-six months after the surgery. Despite being ruled out for the remainder of the season he said, "we have no idea when the season actually is going to pick back up, so we shall see." Brunson echoes the uncertainty that still surrounds the 2019-20 NBA season. Even when basketball activities resume, he will likely have to go through incremental steps like playing 3-on-3 and moving up to 5-on-5. That may be challenging under the quarantine restrictions.

    Jalen Brunson, who is still recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum, recently said in an interview that a return to action if the 2019-20 season is extended has been ruled out.

    Brunson goes on to say that his timeline is more aligned with making a return for next season's camp, He has been rehabbing at home but has kept in close contact with family and teammates via video calls and chats. Brunson is expected to be ready for a full load come 2020-21.

    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.

    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.

    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.
