News: Nowitzki will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Pelicans, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Nowitzki is not dealing with an injury, and he'll simply take the night off to rest. He could play Friday against Orlando, though he previously stated he plans to rest for that contest as well.

News: Felton (foot) has progressed to doing exercises in a pool, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.
Impact: Felton is nursing a high ankle sprain and has exceeded the original 10-day recovery timeline. However, with the regular season still a week away, and Felton facing a four-game suspension, he'll have plenty of time to continue his recovery before taking the floor for the first time in a Mavs uniform.

News: Ellis (rest) and the rest of the Dallas starters got the night off Saturday for the team's preseason loss to the Pacers.

News: Nelson (rest) and the rest of the Dallas starters got the night off Saturday for the team's preseason loss to the Pacers.

News: Chandler (rest) and the rest of the Dallas starters got the night off Saturday during the team's preseason loss to the Pacers.

Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wright played 14 minutes Saturday in a preseason loss to the Pacers. He finished with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting.
Impact: Wright will be a key contributor off the Dallas bench and remains an efficient fantasy option in deeper formats.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mekel scored a team-high 19 points Saturday in a preseason loss to the Pacers. He added nine assists and two rebounds.
Impact: Mekel is reportedly on the market and this performance could enhance his trade value. However Dallas may be inclined to keep the second-year point guard with Raymond Felton expected to miss time with a high ankle sprain.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aminu scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a preseason loss to the Pacers. He added two blocks and two assists.
Impact: Aminu saw extra playing time with the Mavericks holding out their starters. He will see time this season and may be a decent source of rebounds, though his contributions outside of that will be minimal.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki (rest) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Pacers, the Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: The Mavericks played an exhibition Friday night, so the short turnaround certainly isn't worth the bother in the preseason. As an aging veteran, Nowitzki will be allowed to rest to preserve his energy for the 2014-15 campaign.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parsons scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting Friday. He added five rebounds and four assists in the preseason win over the Cavaliers.
Impact: Parsons showed his versatility Friday, filling the stat-sheet. He played a team-high 34 minutes and tied Jameer Nelson for the team-high in scoring.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki scored 16 points and collected nine rebounds Friday in a preseason win over Cleveland. He added three steals and two assists.
Impact: Nowitzki looked comfortable playing alongside all four of the projected starters for the first time this season. He remains an efficient and valuable fantasy weapon.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson scored 19 points Friday in a preseason win over Cleveland. He finished 7-of-9 from the floor, including 4-of-6 from behind the arc. He added four rebounds and three assists.
Impact: Nelson was sensational while playing with the four other projected starters for the first time this preseason. He took advantage of the space created by teammates Monta Ellis, Dirk Nowitzki, and Chandler Parsons and was able to find a rhythm early. If he can rediscover his outside shot, Nelson could be worth a flier.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harris scored 13 points in a preseason win over the Cavaliers. He finished 4-of-9 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the arc.
Impact: Harris led the bench in minutes played with 27 and has established himself as the team's first guard off the bench.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis showed no ill-effects of his recent knee sprain, scoring 13 points in Friday's preseason win over the Cavaliers. He added a team-high eight assists and two steals.
Impact: Ellis was expected to miss at least two preseason games after spraining his knee in practice but made a surprisingly quick recovery. He played 31 minutes.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Crowder scored one point (0-of-2 FG, 1-of-2 FT) Friday in a preseason win over the Cavaliers. He added two rebounds, two assists, and two steals.
Impact: Crowder played 13 minutes but did little to impress fantasy owners. He will have to do a better job when given minutes to warrant a roster spot, even in deeper leagues.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chandler failed to score Friday in Dallas' preseason win over Cleveland. He missed all four of his shot attempts but did manage six rebounds.
Impact: Chandler won't be a focal point of the offense but should pick up points off put-backs and alley-oops. His value remains directly linked to his blocking and rebounding ability.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aminu scored nine points on 4-of-11 shooting Friday. He added seven rebounds in the preseason win over the Cavaliers.
Impact: Aminu appears to have established himself as a member of the Dallas rotation but his fantasy value remains limited.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | STATS
News: The Dallas Mavericks have signed Togashi after he played on their summer league team.
Impact: Togashi averaged 5.3 points in four summer league games. The native of Niigata, Japan, played high school basketball in the U.S. at the school that produced Kevin Durant.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki returned from a right hip contusion Sunday in Dallas' preseason win over Indiana. He finished with 7-of-11 shots from the field and pulled in five rebounds.
Impact: Nowitzki was impressive and showed little signs of being bothered by the hip injury. Nowitzki plans on working closely with team athletic trainer Casey Smith to keep his legs fresh throughout the season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis (knee) went through a full practice Monday, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.
Impact: A sprained left knee kept Ellis out of both of Dallas' games over the weekend, but he looks to be on track to return for the team's next preseason game on Friday night.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Felton has a severe ankle sprain and will be out at least 10 days, Mavs' official site reports.
Impact: This 10 day timetable for Felton's return indicates that he has a fairly severe ankle sprain. Felton will have more than 10 days to recover before the regular season starts, so expect him to take as much time as he needs to heal his ankle. Even if Felton does start the season off healthy though, he will only be worth a late round pick in deeper leagues.
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Felton suffered a sprained right ankle Friday in Dallas' preseason game against Oklahoma City, ESPN Dallas reports.
Impact: Felton was helped off the court but x-rays were negative. Even if he is healthy by opening night, he will miss the first four games of the year due to suspension.
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki (hip) went through shootaround Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Pacers, NBA.com's Earl K. Sneed reports.
Impact: This is in line with previous reports about Nowitzki's timetable for return, and his status for the start of the regular season does not appear to be in doubt.
Fri. Oct 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis will miss the next two games with a sprained left knee, which he suffered in Thursday's practice, NBA.com's Earl K. Sneed reports.
Impact: While this isn't ideal, it doesn't sound like his status for the start of the regular season is in jeopardy. The Mavs play Friday and then Sunday, and don't play again until Oct. 17, which is the soonest we could expect Ellis to be back on the court. Ellis has not missed a regular season game since the 2011-12 season, and has developed a reputation as one of the more durable players in the NBA.
Thu. Oct 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki (hip) will not play Friday but hopes to play Sunday against the Pacers.
Impact: After going through a non-contact practice Thursday, Nowitzki will rest his ailing hip Friday before potentially returning to the court for Sunday's matchup with Indiana. Nowitzki is dealing with a simple hip contusion, and it doesn't look like anything that will affect him long-term.
