    Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) will be available vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Kristaps Porzingis (rest) will not play on Wednesday, which could give Cauley-Stein some deep-league streaming appeal. His role is too small in Dallas to trust him and he should be left on waiver wires after tonight's game.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game.

    Cauley-Stein has played sparingly for the Mavs. Assuming he is cleared to play, he should see more action with Kristaps Porzingis resting versus the Nuggets.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) did not travel with the team and will miss Tuesday's contest vs. the Spurs.

    Willie has seen his value plummet since joining the Mavs. He has streaming appeal when Kristaps Porziņģis sits out but doesn't see enough minutes when everyone is healthy in order to provide value in standard leagues. He can be considered in 18-team leagues and deeper at this time.

    Willie Cauley-Stein is probable to face the Bulls on Monday and has returned to the team following a personal absence.

    Cauley-Stein has missed the last six games but should be good to go, and might get right back into the mix with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) out. He's on the board for a deep-league source of boards and blocks.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) will rejoin the Mavs in Chicago on Monday.

    Cauley-Stein has missed the last five games for this personal matter, though he had played under five minutes in the team's two games prior to that. We hope all is well with WCS just the same.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal reasons) is officially questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    WCS is in jeopardy of missing his fifth straight game on Friday and has little to no value when Kristaps Porziņģis is healthy. WCS has some streaming appeal if he is given spot-starts down the road but can be left on the wire in standard leagues.

    Willie Cauley-Stein is still not with the team due to personal reasons and will sit out of Wednesday’s game vs. the Spurs.

    Cauley-Stein had one of the best fantasy stretch of his career while playing starter-level minutes with the Warriors. Since joining the Mavs, Willie has started twice as the team was without Kristaps Porziņģis in both of those games. He played 25-plus minutes in both those games while he has yet to see more than 13 minutes when Kristaps is available. Therefore, it can be reasonably assumed that Willie is a low-end handcuff for Kristaps moving forward. Head coach Rick Carlisle told the media that Cauley-Stein might re-join the team ahead of Monday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    WCS hasn't seen much of a role since moving to the Mavs as the team has elected to move Kristaps Porzingis to C and play smaller. WCS should be considered day-to-day going forward.

    Willie Cauley-Stein will not play on Monday for personal reasons.

    This shouldn't move the needle for many fantasy players. Consider him day-to-day going forward.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) is being listed as questionable ahead of the Mavs' game on Monday vs. the Wolves.

    Cauley-Stein's fantasy value has been nonexistent since being moved to the Mavericks prior to the trade deadline. He missed Saturday's game but Kristaps Porzingis has been very good and even Maxi Kleber is ahead of Cauley-Stein on Dallas' pecking order down low.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) will not be with the Mavs on Saturday when they take on the Hawks.

    Cauley-Stein picked up a DNP-CD on Friday and played only 4.3 minutes per game in the prior two contests so he can be left on waivers. With Kristaps Porzingis also unavailable on Saturday, Maxi Kleber and Boban Marjanovic will hold down the center position.

    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (knee injury recovery) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Porzingis posted a ridiculous 24-point, 10-rebound, 5-assist, 5-block, 4-triple line on Friday and will be rested on the second game in the back-to-back. Maxi Kleber, who posted a season-high 26 points in 23 minutes on Friday should slide into the starting lineup with Boban Marjanovic picking up the backup minutes after getting a DNP-CD on Friday as Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) is unable.

    Willie Cauley-Stein double-doubled in a start on Saturday with 15 points (7-of-7 from the field), 10 rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Cauley-Stein got the start with Kristaps Porzingis (injury recovery, left knee) sitting out. WCS hasn't seen enough minutes while the Mavs are healthy to be rostered outside of very deep leagues.

    Willie Cauley-Stein will start in place of Kristaps Porzingis during Saturday's game versus the Hornets.

    WCS comes in as an interesting value play for DFS, but doesn't hold any long-term value for season long leagues until we see him starting on a ightly basis.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (injury recovery, left knee) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

    This is the second game of a back-to-back so this was to be expected. Porzingis has been putting up elite fantasy numbers filling in as the primary scorer with Doncic out but the Mavs will have to rely on Maxi Kleber, Willie Cauley-Stein and Dorian Finney-Smith to hold down the frontcourt for this one with Boban Marjanovic likely to also get some minutes.
