J.J. Barea News
Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea scored 18 points with eight assists and two triples in 26 minutes on Monday. Barea filled in at point guard for Luka Doncic (ankle) and ran the offense masterfully, helping to lead his team to a victory. The 36-year-old may not be the most attractive fantasy option, but take a look at his averages every time he's played 20 or more minutes this year: 12.8 points and 7.8 assists per game. The ceiling is not high, but the floor is there as a cheap DFS option, especially if Doncic is forced to miss Tuesday's game against Portland.
Dallas Mavericks point/shooting guards Seth Curry (back) and J.J. Barea (ankle) both have their statuses up in the air for Wednesdays contest versus the New Orleans Pelicans. With Jalen Brunson (shoulder) on the shelf for an extended period of time, the duo of Luka Doncic and Delon Wright could wind up shouldering a significant ball-handling load should both Curry and Barea be unavailable Wednesday. Curry has been an electric scorer over his past five games, averaging 22.4 points on 57.9 percent shooting from long range. With the pace of Wednesdays game expected to be vastly above league average, owners will want to confirm the status of both Curry and Barea ahead of tip-off.
Dallas Mavericks guards Seth Curry and J.J. Barea have both picked up questionable tags for Wednesdays contest against the Memphis Grizzlies. Curry missed Mondays game due to a left knee ailment, while Barea departed early due to a sprained left ankle. The absence of both men would put further stress on a backcourt already looking to hold steady without Luka Doncic (ankle). Jalen Brunson and Delon Wright would figure to benefit the most from an absence by Curry or Barea, but Tim Hardaway Jr. could also enjoy a further offensive role. Check back prior to tip-off to see which Mavericks have been given the green light to play.
Dallas Mavericks point/shooting guard J.J. Barea will miss the rest of Mondays game versus the Indiana Pacers due to a sprained left ankle that he sustained during the first half. Prior to his departure, Barea logged three points on 1-for-4 shooting across his nine minutes off the bench. He returned Monday from a one-game absence and figured to see a sizable role with Luka Doncic (ankle) unavailable for the near future. Bareas next chance to get back into action comes Wednesday against Memphis, a contest which he figures to be questionable for the time being.
