    Justin Jackson scored 13 points in 29 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Suns.

    This was by far Jackson's best outing of the bubble and that really isn't saying much. He did make half his shots, bury a triple and run around for half an hour, but it's just not really an exciting profile even if he does get playing time.

    Justin Jackson was awful in a spot-start for the Mavs on Monday, going 1-for-5 from the field for just two points, two boards and one assist in 24 minutes.

    Jackson drew the started as the Mavs rested Dorian Finney-Smith (sore hip). He was not much to look at and he also got into some foul trouble, which likely exacerbated his woes. He was the team's worst starter in the +/- column with a minus-7. Leave him on the wire and don't look back.

    Justin Jackson closed the 2019-20 fantasy season as a top-385/360 player.

    Jackson saw all of his numbers trend down, and he played a career-low 16.0 mpg while shooting a career-worst .298 from deep. Already a low-usage option, a flaky 3-point shot is going to severely limit Jackson's chances of carving out a consistent role. No longer employed by the organization and front office that made him a first-round selection, Jackson is trending down and should not be a consideration in fantasy formats going forward.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith

    Dorian Finney-Smith (sore hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's tilt vs. the Nuggets.

    Finney-Smith played in Tuesday's game after missing the previous two contests with hip soreness. Wednesday's game comes on the second half of a back-to-back so the team is likely exercising caution with Finney-Smith. His next chance to take the court will be on Saturday vs. the Suns. Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson will see additional minutes with this news.

    Dorian Finney-Smith has been downgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup vs. the Nuggets as he nurses a sore hip.

    This news doesn't bode well for Finney-Smith's availability for Wednesday. If he gets ruled out, look for Maxi Kleber and Justin Jackson to pick up additional minutes. Kleber is definitely worth streaming in standard leagues regardless of Finney-Smith's status.

  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) is officially questionable for Tuesday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

    Finney-Smith is in jeopardy of missing his third straight game. The Mavs will already be without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) and Seth Curry (left ankle) so there is even more need for Finney-Smith. If he is unable to play, Justin Jackson and Courtney Lee will continue to see more minutes.

  • 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.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright is now questionable for Saturday's Mavs-Hornets tilt due to left foot soreness.

    This is a new injury for Wright that you will have to circle back to check on before Saturday's game tips off. With Tim Hardaway Jr. also questionable the Mavs could be rather shorthanded. Seth Curry, Justin Jackson and Jalen Brunson would seem best suited to benefit.

    Justin Jackson moved into the starting lineup on Thursday night and was almost invisible with eight points, two rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Jackson perfected the anonymous start when the Kings tried to make him their small forward, and there's no reason for him to be on any rosters outside of 30-team leagues.

  • Tim Hardaway Jr.
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. will not play against the Nets on Thursday as he continues to recover from a left hamstring strain.

    With Hardaway Jr. ruled out, look for Seth Curry, Delon Wright, Justin Jackson and Jalen Brunson as streaming options depending on team needs. They will all also have some DFS appeal depending on their price tags.

    Ryan Broekhoff will be out indefinitely with a left fibula fracture.

    There is no timetable for his return according to the Mavs. Broekhoff wasn't a major fantasy contributor in the first place, but now the rest of his season could be in question. Justin Jackson could see a slightly expanded role going forward.

    Justin Jackson logged 23 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 19 points (7-for-11 shooting), with six rebounds, four triples and a steal as the Mavs destroyed the Cavs.

    Jackson wasn't the only player off the Mavs bench to have a hot shooting night – Delon Wright (10 points on 4-for-9 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, a three, a steal and a block) and J.J. Barea (12 points on 5-for-8 shooting, two threes, two assists, one rebound, one steal and a block) had solid games as well.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    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.
