Justin Holiday finally got a look in Memphis, but it was Omri Casspi who posted the decent line. Maxi Kleber is making a case for more ownership, but is it tied to DSJ's absence? Dan…

Maxi Kleber put up seven points with two 3-pointers, four steals and one block in a loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
He has stream potential while he is starting and could have an increase in value if Dennis Smith Jr. is ultimately traded. He has been a top-80 player over the past two weeks and worth an add if he is available in your league.

Maxi Kleber nearly double-doubled in a start on Wednesday as he had 13 points and nine rebounds in a win over the Suns.
He added one assist, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers to the stat sheet. He is a deep-league guy with value in points, rebounds, 3-pointers and blocks. However, he has stream potential on games like this when he enters the starting lineup.

Maxi Kleber moved back to the bench on Monday night and was only able to post one point and six rebounds in 19 minutes.
Kleber's been a nice deep-league play for his ability to chip in rebounds, threes and blocks but he didn't have it tonight. There's not much sense in using him in leagues with fewer than 16 teams, but those of you who do have him in those larger formats should just sit tight.

Maxi Kleber joined the starting lineup on Wednesday to help match up with the Pelicans' size and posted 10 points, three rebounds, two 3-pointers and six blocks.
Deep-league owners have long known about Kleber's rim protecting abilities, and it was great to see him strut his stuff in 24 minutes tonight. Unfortunately he figures to return to a much more restrictive bench role for the next game, and while this performance does open the door for more matchup starts going forward, Kleber's utility remains confined to deeper fantasy leagues.

Maxi Kleber will be joining Mavs starters, Luka Doncic, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes and DeAndre Jordan on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.
This is a matchup decision and to make them more resilient vs. the Pelicans' formidable frontcourt. Kleber makes for an interesting DFS play but is not worth owning in season-long formats in most league depths.

Maxi Kleber (toe) and Dirk Nowitzki (ankle surgery) are both probable to play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.
Kleber has top-180 9-cat roto value on the season but has been outside the top-200 over the last few weeks. He’s an option in very deep leagues while Dirk Diggler, unfortunately, is not.

Maxi Kleber was able to play through his toe sprain on Thursday but only posted four points and two rebounds in eight minutes of action.
This was a fairly weird box for the Mavs, who didn't really use any of their bigs against the Clippers aside from DeAndre Jordan. Dwight Powell played seven minutes, Dirk played six and little-used Salah Mejri actually led the bunch with nine. Kleber and Powell are the deep-league targets.

Maxi Kleber (left toe sprain) is questionable to play on Thursday.
Kleber missed the last game with the injury and has been battling it on and off for a few weeks. Dirk Nowitzki, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith will all see more minutes if Kleber can't play.

Maxi Kleber (left great toe sprain) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.
Kleber has played sparingly lately, especially with the return of legend Dirk Nowitzki. With Kleber sidelined, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith should get a slight uptick in work. Kleber is a very deep-league option these days.

Maxi Kleber (left great toe sprain) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.
Kleber dealt with the toe sprain a couple weeks back but was removed from the injury report last week, so it's a mild concern that he can't shake the injury. The return of Dirk Nowitzki is going to impact him eventually, but right now Dirk is playing small enough minutes that Kleber is still a fine deep-league play. Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith always benefit with Kleber sits and that'd be the case tomorrow.

Maxi Kleber (toe sprain) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Thursday night's game.
Kleber played Monday and Wednesday, so it was only a question of caution for his status on Thursday. He is a solid deep league option given his diverse stat set. With Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) scheduled to return, Kleber could take a small hit. He doesn't play that many minutes to begin with.

Maxi Kleber (toe sprain) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns.
Kleber had as good of a game one can have while only logging 17 minutes on Wednesday. We'd suspect he's healthy enough to play Thursday, but we'll see if they want to be cautious on a back-to-back. He's a solid deep league option right now.
