Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Iffy for Friday
Hardaway is questionable for Friday's game versus the Grizzlies due to back spasms, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.
It's unclear when Hardaway suffered his back injury, but it could cause him to miss his first game of the season Friday. If Hardaway is ruled out, Jaden Hardy, Seth Curry and Josh Green are candidates to receive extended minutes.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Olivier-Maxence Prosper: Questionable for Friday
Prosper is questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies due to an ankle sprain, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.
Prosper has been on the fringes of the Mavericks' rotation this season, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to suit up Friday. His status shouldn't significantly impact the team's plans.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Still sidelined
Kleber (toe) has shed his walking boot but won't play in Friday's game versus Memphis, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.
Kleber's absence streak will extend to 10 games Friday due to a dislocated right toe. His next chance to suit up is Saturday's matchup with the Thunder.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Dante Exum: Reaches double digits in win
Exum dropped a season-high 12 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT) along with three assists, one rebound and one steal in Tuesday's 121-115 victory over the Rockets.
Exum seems to have embraced his role as the backup point guard, and he has been rewarded with a steady increase in minutes, as he averaged 14.4 minutes per game in his last nine contests compared to only 5.3 minutes per game in his first six. After being a healthy scratch against the Magic on Nov. 6, Exum has averaged 6.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.1 blocks across 13.8 minutes since then.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Scores 11 points in win
Hardaway supplied 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt) and one rebound in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 win over the Rockets.
Hardaway has gone cold in recent games, and his minutes suffered Tuesday as a result. Over his last three games, Hardaway is shooting 30.6 percent from the field. Hardaway is still on pace for his highest scoring average since 2018-19, with 16.8 points per game this season, so it's just a matter of time before positive regression kicks in.... See More ...

Mavericks' Grant Williams: Held scoreless against Houston
Williams posted zero points (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 18 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 win over the Rockets.
Williams picked up four fouls for the third game in a row, but unlike his previous two matchups, he saw reduced minutes with Derrick Jones (15 points) providing a spark off the bench. Williams has been very quiet over his last four games, averaging 4.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 26.1 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Plays well in bench role
Jones ended Tuesday's 121-115 victory over Houston with 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.
Jones was moved to the bench Tuesday in favor of Josh Green, but it seemed to have a lit a fire under him. Jones scored in double figures for the first time since Nov. 15 and for the sixth overall time this season. He also showed off his improved three-point shooting, and he's currently on pace to shoot a career-high 38.1 percent from beyond the arc.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Goes off for 41 points
Doncic had 41 points (15-29 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 8-9 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 win over Houston.
Doncic was one game removed from undergoing X-rays on his left hand, so it's impressive what he was able to accomplish Tuesday at less than 100 percent. Doncic has scored at least 40 points three times this season and has reached nine assists in eight total games.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Derrick Jones: Heads to bench
Jones isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Rockets, Jackson Gatlin of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.
Josh Green will replace Jones in the starting lineup Tuesday. While Jones has started all 16 of his appearances this season, he is averaging just 4.0 points and 3.3 rebounds on 25.0 percent shooting from the field over his last four games.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Josh Green: Joins starting lineup
Green will enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.
The Mavericks will shake things up after losing three of their last four games, and it will be Derrick Jones who heads to the bench to open up a spot for Green. In three previous starts this season, Green averaged 5.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 three-pointers.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Richaun Holmes: Returns to bench
Holmes isn't in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Rockets.
Dereck Lively will replace Holmes in the starting lineup Tuesday. Holmes is averaging 3.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 8.8 minutes across his previous six appearances off the bench this season.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Active Tuesday
Lively (back) will play Tuesday against Dallas.
Lively will return from a one-game absence due to a back contusion. He'll be a welcome addition to a Dallas frontcourt still lacking Maxi Kleber (toe). Dwight Powell and Richaun Holmes have uninspiringly split part-time duties, so Lively should reprise his alpha center role.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Remains out
Kleber (toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup versus Houston.
Kleber is due for another evaluation soon but will likely remain out until that drops. He's been sidelined since Nov. 8 due to a dislocated right toe, and in his absence, Dereck Lively (back), Dwight Powell, Derrick Jones and Richaun Holmes have garnered increased roles.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Questionable for Tuesday
Lively (back) is questionable for Tuesday against Houston, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.
Lively was able to practice Monday, but the Mavericks want to see how his back responds Tuesday before making a decision. Richaun Holmes drew the start in Lively's place Saturday against the Clippers, but he failed to impress.... See More ... See Less
