Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He wasn't able to play in Monday's contest, so the Mavs might be just playing it safe here. There is a good chance that he doesn't play on Thursday, but should be fine for the regular season opener. Brunson doesn't carry huge upside, but could be late round guy or a nice piece in a deep league.
Dallas Mavericks forward/center Dwight Powell (hamstring) has been making progress, but won't play in the preseason. He suffered a left hamstring injury last week and the team is going to be cautious with him during camp. They will re-evaluate Powell before the season opener. Powell still should have value in almost all formats despite the injury. Maximilian Kleber would benefit the most, assuming Powell misses time in the regular season. Boban Marjanovic might get a few extra minutes as well.
Dallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) won't suit up for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Mavs aren't going to push Porzingis too hard, but he is expected to play on Wednesday. There is a good chance that Porzingis misses around 15-20 games due to rest. Fantasy owners should keep that in mind, but when he's on the court, Porzingis is a stud.
Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea (Achilles) has been ruled out for the first two preseason games on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Mavs are easing him back into action as he was a limited participant in camp. It's unclear if Barea will be ready for the regular season opener. The Mavs have plenty of depth with Delon Wright and Jalen Brunson, so Barea won't be worth targeting in fantasy leagues.
Dallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis was a full participant in Tuesday's practice. It is a promising sign that Porzingis is back to being 100 percent healthy. Head coach Rick Carlisle said that Porzingis did terrific during his first practice from start to finish in awhile. This is a great step forward for Porzingis, so hopefully he's able to get back to 100 percent healthy this season.
