Mejri finished with two points (1-1 FG), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in eight minutes during Wednesday's 112-101 loss to the Heat.
Mejri drew the start but barely played, perhaps in part due to the unfavorable matchup. Moreover, Jalen Brunson started the second half with coach Rick Carlisle opting to go small, which speaks to Mejri's minimal involvement and fantasy value.
Mejri will start Wednesday's game against the Heat.
Mejri was held out of the previous four games after negotiating a new contract with Dallas. He'll join the starting-five for what will likely be a spot start as he's averaging just 6.8 minutes per game in 16 appearances this season.
Mejri isn't listed on the Mavericks' injury report and should be available for Wednesday's game against the Heat.
After reaching a new contract with Dallas over the weekend, Mejri wasn't cleared in time to play in Monday's 120-104 loss to the Rockets. His absence from Wednesday's injury report implies that he was able to take part in the Mavs' morning shootaround, which should be enough for him to dress later in the evening as a reserve center. Mejri was averaging 2.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in 6.8 minutes per game over 16 appearances with Dallas prior to getting waived and subsequently re-signed.
Mejri could be available for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Mejri was released by the Mavs last week, but he re-signed with the team shortly after, and the hope is that he'll be able to get back on the floor by Wednesday night. The big man started his final game as a Maverick on Jan. 31, but he hadn't been a part of the regular rotation prior to his release. However, with DeAndre Jordan now in New York, Mejri could pick up some minutes at center down the stretch.
Mejri (not with team) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Rockets.
Though Mejri formally re-signed Sunday with Dallas three days after being waived by the team, he apparently wasn't able to catch a flight to Houston in advance of the intrastate showdown. Assuming he's able to put in a practice Tuesday, Mejri should be ready to fill his usual role as a depth center in Dallas' final game before the All-Star break Wednesday against the Heat.
