  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Closes Game 1 loss

    Lawson closed with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound in five minutes during Tuesday's 117-95 loss to Oklahoma City in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Lawson played five minutes of garbage time as the Mavericks were dismantled by the Thunder down the stretch. Dallas will attempt to reverse the result in Game 2 on Thursday, hoping to head home with the series locked at 1-1.

  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Used sparingly in victory

    Lawson accumulated no counting stats in one minute during Monday's 115-105 win over the Jazz.

    Lawson continues to be an afterthought in Dallas, playing just one minute for the second straight game. Given he has played in only seven of the past 16 games, logging 16 total minutes, managers can confidently ignore him in all formats.

  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Upgraded from two-way deal

    Lawson agreed Sunday with the Mavericks on a standard multi-year NBA contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Lawson had been in the midst of his second season on a two-way deal with the Mavericks, but Dallas will move him up to its 15-man roster ahead of Tuesday's game against the Pacers. The 23-year-old hadn't been a regular contributor at the NBA level this season, as he had averaged 3.8 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 8.3 minutes per game over 28 total appearances for Dallas. However, he's been a featured player when he's been with the G League's Texas Legends this season, averaging 20.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.4 three-pointers in 33.7 minutes over seven total appearances.

  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Scores 17 points off bench Saturday

    Lawson ended Saturday's 144-119 win over the Spurs with 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals over 31 minutes.

    Lawson benefited from an expanded role in a blowout game, and he took advantage of the opportunity, delivering his best game of the season. However, there's a chance this might have been an outlier and nothing more, as Lawson is averaging just 11.3 minutes per game across 11 appearances off the bench this season.

  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Sidelined with knee injury

    Lawson hasn't appeared in any games for the G League's Texas Legends since Feb. 25 due to a right knee injury.

    One of Dallas' two two-way players, Lawson hasn't suited up at the NBA level since Feb. 15, but he appears to have sustained the knee injury while he was on assignment in the G League. Lawson has appeared in three games to date for the Legends, averaging 25.3 points, 10.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.7 three-pointers, 2.0 steals and 0.7 blocks in 34.9 minutes per contest in those outings.

    Lawson didn't play in in Thursday's 127-100 loss to the Stockton Kings due to right knee soreness.

  • Mavericks' A.J. Lawson: Puts up 10 points in 12 minutes

    Lawson finished Wednesday's 118-109 loss to the Nuggets with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal in 12 minutes.

    Even with Kyrie Irving (back) sitting out Wednesday, Dallas head coach Jason Kidd expanded his rotation to 11 men, allowing Lawson to make his first appearance since Feb. 6. Though Lawson acquitted himself well during his limited time on the court, the two-way player will likely find himself outside of the rotation and perhaps back in the G League when the Mavericks open their post-All-Star-break schedule.
