Dallas Mavericks guards Josh Green (elbow) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (back) have both been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Star guard Kyrie Irving (foot) will join them on the sideline for this game. The absence of these three will leave the Mavs extremely shorthanded for this game. Luka Doncic will be asked to carry the load on offense. Fantasy managers should expect Seth Curry and Jaden Hardy to have expanded roles, which should give them some streaming appeal.
Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Green has agreed to a new deal with the organization on Monday. The 22-year-old quietly put together a nice season with the Mavericks in 2022. That earned him a three-year, $41 million extension with the team. The expectation is that Green will slide into the starting five to begin the season. He averaged 9.1 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in 25.6 minutes per game in 60 games last season. He's an above average defender and he should improve on offense as well, which makes him an interesting late-round pick in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Josh Green (back) sustained a back injury on Monday and missed Tuesday's practice as a result. Green must have suffered the setback during Monday's session, but there's no indication of a significant problem at this juncture. The Mavericks aren't back in action until Friday's preseason finale versus the Detroit Pistons, so we'll see if Green is healed up by then. The 22-year-old former first-rounder figures to be good to go for Oct. 25's season opener, in any event, as a key component of head coach Jason Kidd's razor-thin depth chart outside of Luka Doncic (calf) and Kyrie Irving (groin). Green is a decent speculative fantasy flier with an efficient three-and-D skill set, but his status needs to be monitored moving ahead.
Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Josh Green is looking to improve defensively in 2023-24. "I want to be able to be a bigger defensive presence next year for the Mavs," Green told Grant Afseth of DallasBasketball.com. "I think this is a perfect time to try. I think I'll be in pretty good shape from picking up full court every game." Green took big strides last season to produce a career year, and the 22-year-old appears to have no intentions of resting on his laurels. He already had a solid role in the rotation a season ago, averaging close to 26 minutes a night, but taking his defensive game up a notch will definitely improve his chances of earning even more playing time.
