Maxi Kleber

  • Maxi Kleber - F - Dallas Mavericks

    Speaking on the Mavs' offseason plans, Mark Cuban said that the team would "probably" bring back Maxi Kleber.

    Fantasy owners are hoping they do as well, as Kleber has been able to return standard-league value even in a sixth man role for the Mavs. With Dirk Nowitzki gone and Harrison Barnes off the roster, there's a possibility that Kleber slots into a completely vacant power forward spot depending on how Dallas fills out the roster this offseason. If the Mavs spend elsewhere, Kleber has the looks of a player that can really sneak up on the casual fantasy crowd.

    Maxi Kleber played in 71 games and averaged 21.1 mpg, 6.8 points, 1.1 threes, 4.6 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game in the 2018-19 season.

    Kleber's athleticism and efficiency sometimes took a backseat to Dwight Powell's similarly situated fantasy game, but it was a great year for both of them. Kleber knocked on the door of the top-150 and with more minutes and general improvement, he could easily be a solid late-round pick next year if he can keep a path to minutes.

    Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) will miss Wednesday's regular-season finale.

    Kleber's absence will open up more minutes for Dwight Powell, Dirk Nowitzki and Justin Jackson.

    Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) is probable to play in Tuesday's tilt with the Suns.

    Kleber sat out on Sunday and had a disappointing showing on Friday, though he's been good enough in the second half of the year to warrant a spot in your lineups tomorrow despite the late dip.

    Maxi Kleber (right knee contusion) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Kleber put up a dud in a good spot on Friday and the knee injury may explain that performance. Dwight Powell rested on Friday, but should be in for a big workload against Memphis.

    Maxi Kleber finished Friday's loss with six points, five rebounds, a 3-pointer and a 2-of-9 shooting line in 21 minutes of action.

    No Dwight Powell (rest) was supposed to mean big things for Kleber, who was already producing middle-round numbers down the stretch, but it wasn't in the cards tonight. You should stick with him going forward but this line probably killed a bunch of lineups out there tonight.

    Maxi Kleber scored 17 points off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Kings, hitting 6-of-10 shots (including four threes) with four rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    Kleber is finally getting loose for fantasy owners and at precisely the right time. Even with Dirk (11 minutes) in the mix down the stretch, both Kleber and Dwight Powell are going to get serious run.

    Maxi Kleber put up 16 points, nine rebounds and four 3-pointers on 6-of-9 from the field in Saturday's demolition of the Warriors.

    Kleber didn't block a shot but we're guessing that fantasy owners won't have many issues with this game. It looks like he's fully recovered from his wrist sprain and should be in standard-league lineups from here on out. He sort of faded in the immediate aftermath of the DeAndre Jordan trade, which led to a lot of fantasy players writing him off, but Kleber is back.

    Maxi Kleber scored five points on 2-of-5 shooting while adding seven boards, two assists, a triple, a steal and a block on Thursday.

    Kleber was dealing with a wrist sprain, but played through it and looked solid. He logged over 30 minutes and delivered every peripheral stat which makes him a standard-league guy ROS.

    Maxi Kleber (left wrist sprain) will play on Thursday against the Kings.

    Kleber missed Wednesday's game but fantasy owners are thankful that he came away with minimal missed time. He's been playing well lately and is worth adding in all formats for his ability to help out with rebounds, steals, blocks, 3-pointers and field goal percentage.

    Maxi Kleber (left wrist sprain) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's tilt with the Kings.

    Kleber has been a middle-round guy over the last couple of weeks thanks to well-rounded contributions, so this is a nice break for fantasy owners. He's worth picking up anywhere he may have been dropped. Justin Jackson and Salah Mejri will slide back to the very end of the bench.

    Maxi Kleber (left wrist sprain) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Kleber missed Wednesday's game with the wrist sprain, and looks iffy for Thursday as well. Justin Jackson and Salah Mejri saw the biggest boosts in playing time on Wednesday and would be in line for more minutes again, but nothing is certain as Dorian Finney-Smith, Dirk Nowitzki and Dwight Powell are competing for more minutes as well.

    Maxi Kleber (left wrist sprain) is out for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    This is tough news for owners, as Kleber was playing very well these last few weeks with top-70 value in 9-cat leagues. Dwight Powell, Dorian Finney-Smith, Dirk Nowitzki and Salah Mejri should absorb the 28.6 mpg Kleber has recieved the past two weeks.
