Wesley Matthews scored 13 points Tuesday on 4-of-12 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks lost to the Sacramento Kings 114-109. Matthews grabbed five rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -12 in his 28:54 of playing time. Matthews went 3 of 7 from behind the arc.
Matthews collected 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 114-109 loss to the Kings.
Matthews missed just one game due to a back concern, returning to the starting lineup for the matchup with the Kings. He saw a fairly standard workload, producing a fairly standard fantasy line. He is a streaky shooter and really holds value as just a streaming option in standard leagues.
Matthews was held out of Sunday's loss to the Rockets due to back in his lower-back, but the expectation all along was that he'd return to action Tuesday. Expect Matthews to move back into the starting five, likely pushing one of Yogi Ferrell or Doug McDermott back to the bench.
Matthews (back) is listed as probable in the Mavericks' official game notes for Tuesday's matchup with the Kings.
Matthews was held out of Sunday's game against the Rockets due to lower-back tightness, but it doesn't look like the injury was anything serious and the veteran is on track to return for Tuesday's contest. A return for Matthews would send Doug McDermott, who started at small forward Sunday, back to a role off the bench.
Matthews is available Tuesday after he did not play Sunday against the Rockets due to a sore back.
We didn't expect him to be sidelined for very long.
