    Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) failed to score (0-for-2) in 18 minutes in his return to action on Tuesday but did secure six rebounds and blocked one shot.

    Kleber has not been the late-round flier we were hoping he'd be. Still, he's worth streaming in deeper leagues for boards and blocks.

    Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) is available to play for the Mavs on Tuesday.

    Kleber was probable prior to this update, so it's nice to see that he's indeed good to go. Depending on the minutes he gets, Kleber should be good for some low-end multi-cat production.

    The Mavs have upgraded Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Kleber should resume his usual role splitting time with Dwight Powell. Kleber has returned just 229/237 value in 9/8 cat leagues and is hard to trust in standard leagues as long as his front court mates are healthy.

    The official NBA injury report is listing Maxi Kleber as questionable to face the Clippers on Tuesday due to an illness and a right knee contusion.

    This is the first time we hear about a contusion, even though Kleber was recently bothered by what was described as a “sore knee”. We should get another update before tipoff.

    Maxi Kleber got the start and played a solid 38 minutes in Saturday's win over the Raptors, scoring 10 points, with six rebounds and two steals.

    Kleber made more of an impact in real life than on the box score which should translate to an increase in playing time. He and teammate Dwight Powell will continue to share minutes but Kleber got the bulk tonight. As long as he is starting for Dallas he is startable in fantasy-land.

    Maxi Kleber started on Monday vs. the Celtics and hit four threes on his way to 15 points (4-for-10 FGs, 3-for-4 FTs), eight boards, two dimes and a block in 33 minutes.

    That's two starts in a row for Kleber. Dwight Powell came off the bench, played 30 minutes and shot 6-for-7 tonight. Both players are borderline startable in standard leagues, but it's going to be frustrating with the constant changes in roles.

    Maxi Kleber knocked down three 3-pointers on Saturday to go with 11 points (4-of-7 shooting) and four rebounds in 24 minutes.

    Kleber started but played fewer minutes that Dwight Powell (11 points in 29 minutes). Kleber is a deep-league option for now and is someone to monitor to see if his minutes increase.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis and coach Rick Carlisle would not comment when asked if the Latvian star would be available on Saturday versus Memphis.

    Porzingis has payed in all eight games so far after missing the entire 2018-19 season but this is the Mavs' first back-to-back so it would be no surprise if he rests. Pozingis had a big game in the loss to the Knicks on Friday with 28 points, nine rebounds, five blocks and four triples. Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber and Dorian Finney-Smith would assume bigger roles if Porzingis is held out.

    Maxi Kleber (sore right knee) returned to action on Wednesday, playing 17 points off the bench to tally 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

    It's safe to plug Kleber into your lineups, if you're in a deep-ish league, after tonight's performance. Dwight Powell started and brought 12 points (5-of-8 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes. Expect both bigs to often split time at the four for the Mavs moving forward.

    According to head coach Rick Carlisle, Maxi Kleber will play in Wednesday's game against the Magic despite dealing with some soreness in his right knee.

    With Dwight Powell back in the mix, Kleber's fantasy outlook becomes a bit more complicated as there doesn't seem to be enough minutes to go around. It is definitely a situation to monitor in the near future to see who, if anyone, is relevant in standard leagues.

    Maxi Kleber (sore right knee) is questionable to play on Wednesday.

    Kleber missed Sunday's game and practiced on Tuesday. Kleber did a nice job when Dwight Powell was injured, but he may have trouble getting as many minutes going forward.

    If Kleber can return to game action, he'd join a timeshare with Dwight Powell at the C position. As long as Powell and Kristaps Porzingis are healthy, Kleber's fantasy value will be capped.

    Maxi Kleber (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Cavs.

    This should mean additional minutes for Dwight Powell, whose minutes restriction has been increased over the last couple of games. We could also see some Boban Marjanovic against a bigger opponent in Cleveland, while Dorian Finney-Smith and Justin Jackson will likely soak up PF minutes in smaller lineups.

    Maxi Kleber has a sore knee and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Cavs.

    Kleber has been impressive filling in for Dwight Powell (hamstring, minutes restriction), but he looks to have picked up an injury of his own. Don't cut bait on Kleber just yet, as he's proven to be a solid per-minute producer in the past and can rack up blocks even in a bench role. Check back in tomorrow before game time.

  • Dwight Powell
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dwight Powell (left hamstring strain) made his season debut on Tuesday in the starting lineup, playing 14 minutes and putting up four points and four rebounds.

    Powell got the start at center in his return to action. While Maxi Kleber’s minutes weren't impacted tonight, expect him to be the one to take a hit once Powell's minutes increase. Kleber came off the bench for 14 points, seven boards, three blocks, an assist, a steal and a three in 30 minutes tonight.
