Top Mavericks News

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Dominant outing despite loss

    Doncic accumulated 45 points (17-29 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, 14 assists and three steals in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 121-119 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Doncic recorded team highs in points, rebounds, assists and minutes during Tuesday's narrow loss to Cleveland. The superstar guard was one rebound shy of posting his 11th triple-double of 2023-24. Doncic is shooting a career-high 38.0 percent on 10.2 three-point attempts per contest this season.

  • Mavericks' Josh Green: Briefly exits against Cleveland

    Green returned to Tuesday's game versus the Cavaliers with 1:49 remaining in the third quarter after leaving with right elbow pain, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Green was listed as probable with a right elbow contusion before being upgraded to available against Cleveland. The 23-year-old forward appears to still be bothered by the injury, as he has now left Tuesday's twice. However, each time, Green has returned to the Mavericks' bench shortly after.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go Tuesday

    Kleber (nose) is available for Tuesday's game versus Cleveland.

    Kleber had been listed as probable heading into Tuesday, and as anticipated, he'll be able to suit up for a third straight contest after he had previously missed Dallas' final game before the All-Star break. Expect Kleber to continue to hold down a 20-to-25-minute role while working as a backup at either frontcourt spot.

  • Mavericks' Josh Green: Playing Tuesday

    Green (elbow) will play Tuesday versus Cleveland.

    Green had been listed as probable with a right elbow contusion, which may be a lingering effect of the right elbow sprain that cost him significant time earlier this season. In any case, the 23-year-old is officially in the clear to suit up Tuesday and will be part of a Dallas squad that is at full strength aside from the continued absence of Dante Exum (knee).

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Good to go Tuesday

    Lively (nose) has been cleared to play in Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

    Along with Luka Doncic (nose), Maxi Kleber (nose) and Josh Green (elbow), Lively was one of four Mavericks listed as probable heading into Tuesday who will ultimately get the green light to play. Though he's started in his last two appearances following his recent return from a broken nose, Lively has been limited to 16- and 14-minute workloads while the Mavericks have turned the center spot into more of a rotation that also includes Daniel Gafford, Maxi Kleber and P.J. Washington. Assuming Lively continues to see less than 20 minutes per game on a regular basis, he'll profile as more of a 14-team than a 12-team fantasy option.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Cleared for Tuesday

    Doncic (nose) will play Tuesday versus Cleveland.

    Doncic will suit up for his 10th consecutive game Tuesday despite continuing to deal with lingering effects of a broken nose. He's averaging 37.0 points, 8.5 assists and 7.5 rebounds through his first two appearances since the All-Star break.

  • Mavericks' Dante Exum: Out Tuesday, return is near

    Exum (knee) will not play Tuesday versus Cleveland, but he has a "good chance" of suiting up Wednesday versus Toronto, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Exum has logged just two appearances since Jan. 1 while dealing with heal and knee injuries, but he appears to be nearing a return from the ongoing right knee inflammation that has plagued him of late. The Mavericks rotation will need to be monitored upon his eventual return, with Tim Hardaway and Josh Green (elbow) representing his primary competition for minutes.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Listed as probable again

    Kleber (nose) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Kleber, Luka Doncic (nose), Dereck Lively (nose) and Josh Green (elbow) are all probable, so while the Mavericks' injury report is long, they'll likely be close to full strength versus Cleveland. Kleber's operated off the bench in his last three appearances and hasn't produced much, averaging 5.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 24.7 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Expected to play

    Lively (nose) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Lively has appeared in three straight games since returning from his nasal fracture. He's played an average of 15.8 minutes in that stretch, posting 5.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.3 steals.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Carrying probable tag

    Doncic (nose) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Doncic has been carrying probable tags for the last several games, but his nose hasn't seemed like much of an issue. In his most recent outing against the Pacers on Sunday, Doncic had 33 points (10-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 9-12 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal in 33 minutes.

  • Mavericks' Dante Exum: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Exum (knee) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    While Exum likely won't play Tuesday, he returned to practice Monday and isn't being immediately ruled out, which are both positive signs of his availability moving forward. Assuming he's sidelined Tuesday, his next chance to suit up will come Wednesday in Toronto, but given the lengthy absence, Exum will probably be limited during his return.

  • Mavericks' Josh Green: Dealing with minor elbow injury

    Green is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers due to a right elbow injury, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Per Townsend, Green "dinged his elbow" during Sunday's loss to Indiana, but it appears the issue is minor. He finished that contest with 14 points (6-8 FG), five rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes and continues to be a solid starter for a Mavericks squad that snapped a seven-game win streak Sunday. Over the last eight games, Green has averaged 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 28.5 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' Josh Green: Efficient despite loss to Indy

    Green totaled 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and two steals across 32 minutes during Sunday's 133-111 loss to the Pacers.

    The Mavericks were far from their best offensively outside of their star duo of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, and in fact, Green was the only other starter who scored in double digits in this one. That said, Green is far from being a top-notch offensive threat, as evidenced by the fact he has failed to surpass the 15-point mark in his last seven appearances, a span in which he's averaging 11.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per contest.

  • Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Puts up 29 points in defeat

    Irving amassed 29 points (10-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 133-111 loss to the Pacers.

    Irving was far from being at his best, but the veteran floor general still provided a solid stat line in a game where he and Luka Doncic had to do most of the heavy lifting on offense. Irving has reached the 25-point mark in each of his last five appearances, tying his season-long streak in that department. He's averaging 27.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per contest in February.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Goes for 33 points in loss

    Doncic closed Sunday's 133-111 loss to Indiana with 33 points (10-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 9-12 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal in 33 minutes.

    Doncic delivered another impressive performance Sunday, but his efforts were not enough to lift Dallas to what would've been a significant victory on the road against one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Although the Mavs ended on the wrong side of the score, Doncic was massive once again, recording 30 or more points for the sixth time in nine appearances this month. Doncic is averaging 32.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 9.2 assists per game in February.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go

    Kleber (nose) is available for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    As expected, Kleber, Luka Doncic (nose) and Dereck Lively (nose) have all been upgraded from probable to available. With Dallas' frontcourt at full strength, Kleber is expected to come off the bench, but he should still play a sizable role. On Friday, he posted seven points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during a win over Phoenix.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Officially active

    Lively (nose) will play Sunday versus Indiana, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Lively, Luka Doncic (nose) and Maxi Kleber (nose) have all gained clearance to play in advance of Sunday's game against Indiana. Sunday will mark the second occasion that Dallas' frontcourt has been at full strength with the new additions of Daniel Gafford and P.J. Washington.
