News: Aminu collected his first double-double of the season Thursday, finishing with 16 points and 10 rebounds in a win over the Jazz.
Impact: Aminu took advantage of 20 minutes of playing time to crash the boards and connect on 6-of-7 shooting. He has a knack for rebounding but has to repeat the scoring performance with some regularity before he's worth consideration in most formats.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barea played 19 minutes off the bench for the Mavericks on Thursday in his first game after signing a minimum contract with the team on Wednesday.
Impact: Barea spent five years with the Mavericks before spending the past three seasons with the Timberwolves. Barea returned to the Mavericks against the Jazz on Thursday, scoring four points (2-5 FG, 0-0 FT) and pulling down four rebounds.

Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | STATS

Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire

News: Chandler narrowly missed a double-double to start his second stint with Dallas. Acquired in the offseason, Chandler started at center and finished with eight points and 10 rebounds.
Impact: Chandler was limited in the first half by early foul trouble but still managed to play 28 minutes. He looked comfortable back in a Dallas uniform and will anchor the team's defense moving forward.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aminu failed to score in five minutes of playing time Tuesday. He did manage to grab two rebounds in the loss to the Spurs.
Impact: Aminu is a defensive-minded player whose contributions will not always appear in the boxscore. As a result he will be a limited fantasy contributor.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | STATS
News: Ellis scored 26 points in Tuesday night's opener at San Antonio.
Impact: Ellis added six assists and four rebounds. He finished 11 of 21 from the floor, taking 10 more shots than Dirk Nowitzki.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barea was waived by Minnesota and will be on waivers for 48 hours before he can sign with any team, Dallas Morning News reports.

Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | STATS
News: The Minnesota Timberwolves have reached a buyout agreement with veteran guard J.J. Barea to get down to the roster limit of 15 players.
Impact: Coach Flip Saunders announced the decision Monday. Barea had one year and $4.5 million remaining on his contract. But Saunders didn't believe there would be as much playing time for him this season with Ricky Rubio and Mo Williams entrenched as the team's top two point guards.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parsons (knee) was a full participant in Monday's practice and had no issues, the Star-Telegram's Dwain Price reports.

Oct 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barea is expected to be waived within the next 24 hours, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.
Impact: It's unclear exactly when the move will be made, but the Wolves will have until Monday evening's roster cutdown deadline to waive the veteran, who would have complicated the team's efforts to give its younger players more playing time. It's speculated that once waived, Barea will look to return to the Mavericks, the team with which he won the 2011 Finals. In order for that to happen, the Mavs would have to clear a roster spot.
Oct 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Felton won't be able to practice for the first week of the regular season as he continues to nurse a right high ankle sprain, The Star-Telegram reports. Although, Felton still faces a four-game suspension which would have sidelined him during the first week of the season regardless.
Impact: Felton sprained his ankle two weeks ago and has been limited to pool exercises ever since. However, he pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a firearm and weapon in July and was sentenced to a four-game suspension from the NBA as a result. This suspension won't allow him to be available until Nov. 6 against the Trail Blazers. Barring a setback with his ankle injury, the Nov. 6 return date will likely give him enough time to rehab his ankle back to health.
Oct 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parsons missed the last 30 minutes of practice due to a knee injury stemming from Friday's preseason game against the Magic, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Parsons remained in the preseason game after the knee issue occurred, but appears to be feeling some effects Sunday. While the injury doesn't appear to be major, his status should be monitored as the regular season draws near.

News: Nowitzki scored 16 points Friday in a preseason win over the Magic. He finished 5-of-10 from the field, including 4-of-7 from behind the arc.

Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson scored four points and handed out seven assists in a preseason win against his former team. He added four rebounds and two turnovers.
Impact: The Mavericks treated this game as a tuneup for the regular season with the five members of the starting unit each playing over 20 minutes. Nelson has secured the starting point guard position and is worth a roster spot in most formats.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis scored 11 points Friday in a preseason win over the Magic. He added four assists and two steals in 27 minutes of action.
Impact: The Mavericks treated this game as a dress rehearsal for the regular season with the five members of the starting unit each playing over 20 minutes. Ellis played a team-best 27 minutes and remains the starting shooting guard.

Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aminu scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting Friday. He added four rebounds in the preseason win over Orlando.

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.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Barea scored eight points with nine assists and four rebounds in Wednesday's preseason win over Milwaukee.
Impact: Barea will begin the season far down on the depth chart behind Ricky Rubio, Mo Williams and perhaps Zach LaVine at point guard. The T-Wolves also have plenty of options at shooting guard, where Barea also got time the past two seasons. With a minimal role seen for Barea, there's been speculation he could be traded or released. However, the T-Wolves playing time distribution is unsettled, so it's not unrealistic that he may find a significant role off the bench.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis (rest) and the rest of the Dallas starters got the night off Saturday for 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: 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.

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.
