Seth Curry (illness) is questionable to face the Cavs on Friday.
Curry missed Wednesday's contest due to the same illness that may hold him out of Friday's game. If he does sit out, it will be hard to predict exactly who will be given Curry's 21.5 minutes per game as Wednesday's game was a complete blowout. Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, Jalen Brunson, Delon Wright and Justin Jackson are all candidates but Hardaway and Wright seem like the most likely.

Justin Jackson scored 17 points off the bench on Saturday with four threes, shooting 6-of-10 from the floor and 4-of-7 from deep in 25 minutes.
The 17 points and four threes were both season-highs for Jackson. This was also Jackson's first time playing over 20 minutes this season and he looks like he will remain behind Dorian Finney-Smith (11 points in 24 minutes on Saturday) in the rotation moving forward. Jackson can be left on the waiver wire.

Justin Jackson notched 18 points off the bench in Thursday's 102-87 win over the Clippers, adding six rebounds and three triples to round out his game.
Jackson ends his preseason on a strong note and it looks like he'll hold a solid rotation role for Dallas, and may even start if the forward core suffers injuries. That said, he's always been a weak fantasy play and would need immense volume to change anyone's mind.

Justin Jackson scored 13 points with three treys, two rebounds and two assists on Friday.
Jackson had more minutes than any other Mavs player off the bench, but wasn't the only productive one. Jalen Brunson also had 12 points with four assists, two rebounds and two threes. Jackson is at a critical point in his career with the Mavs and if he doesn't earn a role this year don't be surprised to see them move on.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points on 6-for-10 shooting on Wednesday to go along with three threes, three assists, one rebound and a block.
Hardaway played more minutes (24) than anyone else on the Mavs bench suggesting he could still be in the running for a starting spot. Justin Jackson (two points and one steal in 23 minutes) got the start in this one but failed to distinguish himself yet again.

Justin Jackson played in just the first half on Tuesday, but he put up 14 points (6-of-8 FGs) and two triples in his 15 minutes vs. the Thunder.
Jackson and Tim Hardaway Jr. (1-for-7 FGs and not much else) are two likely candidates for a starting wing role. Fantasy-wise, Hardaway would do much more with the extra minutes. Jackson traditionally puts up some of the emptiest stat lines even when has does start.

Justin Jackson scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes in Wednesday's finale against the Spurs.
Jackson started to show signs of life in reality ball in Sacramento, at least in terms of being a rotational player, but never got going in standard leagues in any capacity. Averaging just 0.6 combined steals and blocks in 19.9 mpg, he's simply not good enough anywhere else to offset that. All in all though, even with a mediocre run after the trade in Dallas it should be viewed as a good year for him.

Justin Jackson managed 19 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies.
Jackson went 7-of-15 from the field and logged a team-high 32 minutes. The Mavs rested a bunch of guys tonight and Jackson has been trending up with the season over for Dallas, though he needs big playing time to produce usable lines. He's not the worst flier in the world but he's certainly not the best, either.

Justin Jackson scored nine points with five assists on 4-of-11 shooting in a loss to the Wolves on Wednesday.
Jackson and Jalen Brunson combined to shoot 8-of-23 from the field for 18 points, so neither guy was on their game in this one. They are both starting and have enticing stream potential for the final four games of the season, but do not expect consistency from these youngsters.

Justin Jackson led the Mavs in scoring in their 122-102 win over the Sixers on Monday with 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.
Jackson stepped up with Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) out, but he's still a bit hard to trust outside of points and triples. However with the season winding down, owners may find him useful for a late boost. The Mavs have stated they won't rush Doncic back and with how banged up he's been all season we wouldn't be surprised if his season is finished.

Justin Jackson played his former team on Thursday and scored 19 points on 9-of-16 shooting while adding five boards, an assist and a triple.
Jackson had a "revenge game" against his old team if you like buying into narratives. He's starting now that Tim Hardaway Jr. (stress reaction) is shut down for the season, but even with the high minutes and points, he doesn't do much else. There's some streaming appeal here, but outside of points and triples he doesn't do much else and even his strong categories are inconsistent considering the sample size.
March 21, 2019, 9:58 pmJustin JacksonF, Dallas Mavericks
Justin Jackson will move into the starting lineup on Thursday against the Kings.
Jackson had been buried on the bench in Dallas but might hold down a starting spot with Tim Hardaway Jr. done for the year. He needs massive volume to come close to even low-end value, so the lineup change doesn't do much unless you're in a league with more than 20 teams.

Justin Jackson scored 21 points off the bench on Wednesday against the Blazers, hitting 8-of-15 shots (including three treys) with four rebounds and one assist in 34 minutes.
Jackson doesn't have a very good fantasy stat set and we need to see him do this a few more times before he hits the radar in most formats.

Maxi Kleber (left knee effusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Magic.
Justin Jackson should get another chance to produce but he’ll be a risky play in DFS.

Justin Jackson was feeling it on Wednesday as he clocked in with 5-of-7 shooting from deep en route to his 18 points, five rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes off the bench.
Jackson has not made much noise as of late and this could be an outlying performance. Leave him on the wire for now.
