  • Dorian Finney-Smith
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Dorrian Finney-Smith (left hip strain/right hip soreness) remains listed as questionable ahead of the rescheduled Game 6 on Sunday.

    There is no new info on Finney-Smith as he has played in all five playoff games so far with 9.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.8 triples in 30.8 minutes with a 41.5 field goal percentage. The Mavs are already short up front with Kristaps Porzingis out and if Finney-Smith cannot go, expect Maxi Kleber, Boban Marjanovic and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to all get more minutes.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was called on to defend Kawhi Leonard in Sunday's win, getting 19 minutes off the bench.

    MKG had three points and three rebounds but took on a tough assignment for the good of the team. He wasn't in the Mavs' rotation much during the regular season so we'll see if Rick Carlisle calls on him again for Game 5 and beyond. Leonard still got his on offense, even with Kidd-Gilchrist serving as a speed bump.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not suit up for Friday's game, as he has yet to return to game shape.

    Kidd-Gilchrist was late to get into the bubble and the Mavs don't want him active until he's truly ready to contribute. MKG isn't really in the Mavs rotation so there's no fantasy impact here.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist practiced with the Mavs on Monday, but he was somewhat limited and will not play against the Sixers on Tuesday.

    MKG appears to be further away from game action and the Mavs want to take the time and make sure he is ready to contribute. He only provides depth insurance at this point and it’s unlikely that he has any fantasy impact.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Trey Burke put in a "pretty full" practice on Monday along with teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    Burke got his first practice in on Friday. Both he and Kidd-Gilchrist arrived in the bubble relatively recently. Neither are especially relevant in fantasy, although Burke could have a path to minutes with Jalen Brunson out for the rest of the season.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has yet to join the Mavs for the Orlando restart and head coach Rick Carlisle told the media on Wednesday that "We're working to get him here logistically and we hope that it happens soon."

    It is unclear as to when or how Kidd-Gilchrist will be able to join the team in Orlando. However, it appears that he will join the team at some point prior to the restart on July 30. Kidd-Gilchrist is a depth piece for the Mavs and is off the fantasy radar.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was a non-factor in the 2019-20 season, averaging career-lows across the board while falling out of the rotation in Dallas.

    Kidd-Gilchrist was let go by the Hornets as they prioritized their next wave of players, and he played in only nine games with the Mavs after signing with the team in February. He was a top-450 fantasy option and may no longer receive the sort of minutes that would make him a desperation option for rebounds and steals in deep leagues.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) is available to play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Kidd-Gilchrist has a limited role in Dallas and can be left on the waiver wire in all formats.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

    Even with Kristaps Porzingis out against the Nuggets, Kidd-Gilchrist has done nothing to merit fantasy ownership.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) did not travel with the team to San Antonio and will remain out ahead of Tuesday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

    Kidd-Gilchrist is not on the fantasy radar at this time and can be left on wires across formats.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) will not play in Sunday's matchup vs. the Pacers.

    MKG played 15 minutes in Friday's win over the Grizzlies and only managed to put up four assists, one rebound and two turnovers on 0-of-3 shooting. He's still trying to find his place with this Mavericks roster but he's not worth owning as of now.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is active for the Mavs on Friday against the Magic.

    MKG will try to work his way into a regular rotation slot for the Mavs, but it is hard to know how he will gel with the roster right off the bat. Rick Carlisle is never one to maintain a stable rotation and Kidd-Gilchrist will have plenty of competition for minutes. He's nothing more than a deep league play for now.

  • Cody Martin
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Martin (concussion protocol) fully participated in Tuesday's practice session.

    Martin found himself in the starting lineup before going down a few weeks ago, as he has started to earn a bigger role in coach James Borrego's rotation. With Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out of the picture, Martin should have a reasonably safe role for the second half of the season.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Kings after signing with the team two days ago.

    MKG will not see enough opportunity to be fantasy relevant barring any major injuries. He will be a nice depth piece for a team looking to make a push for the playoffs.

    Recently waived forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has agreed to sign with the Mavs, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic.

    MKG will be the primary backup of Dorian Finney-Smith moving forward once he's on the team. There will be times that he spares Maxi Kleber at the four. His opportunities in Dallas will be limited, so leaving him on the wire for now is the smart move to make.
