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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jefferson was limited in Tuesday's preseason loss due to a lingering fever, the team's website reports.
Impact: Jefferson played just 12 minutes, scoring two points.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nowitzki (hip) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Thunder, NBA.com's Earl K. Sneed reports.
Impact: He missed Tuesday's game with a right hip contusion and the Mavericks are expected to clear up his status after Thursday's practice. His status for the start of the regular season does not appear to be in jeopardy.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire

Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Wright scored eight points Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He added one rebound and two blocks.
Impact: Wright played 14 minutes but saw new teammate Greg Smith eat into his playing time. Wright remains an efficient but limited offensive option that could serve as a nice source of blocks.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Villanueva scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting Tuesday as Dallas dropped its first preseason game to Houston. Villanueva connected on 3-of-6 from the behind the arc and added one rebound and a block before fouling out.
Impact: Villanueva is earning praise from the coaching staff after impressing in the team's inter-squad scrimmage and preseason. His ability to stretch the floor may earn him a spot on the Dallas roster though his fantasy contributions remain limited.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smith was the first big man off the bench Tuesday, scoring seven points in Dallas' preseason loss to Houston. He added five rebounds and an assist in 14 minutes of action.
Impact: Smith and his surgically-repaired knee looked solid against his former team. The fourth-year player will split time with teammate Brandan Wright.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Parsons scored a team-high 14 points Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He finished 3-of-7 from the field, including 2-of-4 from long-range, and a perfect 6-of-6 from the free throw line.
Impact: Parsons has the ability to fill the stat sheet and is expected to play a major role in Dallas' offense. He shouldered the load Tuesday with Dirk Nowitzki out with a hip contusion.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson scored three points in 17 minutes of preseason action Tuesday. He added two assists and four rebounds in the loss.
Impact: Nelson remains the starting point guard but could see his minutes limited by the play of Devin Harris. The presence of Dirk Nowitzki, out Tuesday with a hip contusion, should open up the floor for Nelson and allow him to be more efficient.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mekel scored seven points on 3-of-4 shooting Tuesday in a loss to the Rockets. He added two rebounds in 12 minutes of action.
Impact: Mekel remains the fourth point guard on the Dallas depth chart behind veterans Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris, and Raymond Felton.

News: Ledo played 16 minutes Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He was 0-of-4 from the field but converted on two free-throw attempts to finish with two points.
Impact: Ledo spent the majority of last season in the D-League and appears to be headed back that way this year.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lamb did not play due to a coach's decision in Dallas' preseason loss to the Rockets.
Impact: Lamb signed a non-guranteed deal with the Mavericks and will have a hard time making a talented Dallas roster.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Johnson (illness) was able to participate in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Rockets. He finished 0-for-5 from the field in 10 minutes of action.
Impact: Johnson picked up two points on two made free-throws but did little else to prove he deserves one of Dallas' coveted roster spots.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jefferson scored two points Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He played 12 minutes and added three rebounds.
Impact: Jefferson was one of the last players to get off the bench and didn't look particularly sharp. Dallas' bench is loaded with talent and Jefferson will have to do better to become a regular member of the rotation.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harris scored nine points on 3-of-4 shooting, including 2-of-3 from behind the arc, in Dallas' preseason loss to the Rockets. He added two assists and a rebound.
Impact: Harris spent a large portion of his offseason regime working on his three-point arc. If he can hit it with regularity, he could develop into a valuable bench contributor.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Felton scored six points (2-of-2 FG, 2-of-6 FT) Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He added one steal in 12 minutes of action.
Impact: Felton came off the bench behind starter Jameer Nelson and Devin Harris. He will have to fight for minutes after he returns from his four-game suspension.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ellis scored 13 points in 24 minutes Tuesday. He added a team-best three assists in the preseason loss to the Rockets.
Impact: Ellis attacked the basket routinely and was rewarded with 12 free-throw attempts. However he turned the ball over six times and finished just 2-of-5 from the floor.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Crowder scored two points in 16 minutes of action Tuesday. He added two rebounds in the preseason loss to Houston.
Impact: Crowder is a role player that makes his living on hard-nosed defense and hustle plays. While useful on the court, these plays do not translate over into fantasy very well and he remains a limited fantasy option.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chandler played just 14 minutes Tuesday in a preseason loss to the Rockets. He was saddled by early foul trouble but finished with 10 points and six rebounds.
Impact: Chandler's five fouls were not surprising considering the referees for Tuesday's game called 81 fouls that resulted in over 100 free-throw attempts. The former All-Star will look to bounce back in Dallas after a down year in New York.
Wed. Oct 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Aminu filled in the for the injured Dirk Nowitzki Tuesday, starting at power forward in Dallas' preseason loss to Houston. He finished with eight points and 11 rebounds in 20 minutes of action.
Impact: Aminu has a knack for collecting rebounds but his limited offensive game makes him a fantasy liability. Nowitzki's injury doesn't appear serious so expect Aminu to slide back to the bench.
