Top Kemba Walker News

  • Kemba Walker: On way out of Dallas

    The Mavericks waived Walker on Friday, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Walker is being waived because his salary would have become fully guaranteed Saturday. The Mavericks also want to give rookie Jaden Hardy a path for playing time, and Walker had been standing in the way without providing a major lift to Dallas' second unit. Walker averaged 8.0 points, 2.1 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 16.0 minutes across nine games this season.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Upgraded to probable

    Walker (knee) has been upgraded from questionable to probable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

    Walker has missed back-to-back games due to a left knee injury, but it appears he's on track to return Tuesday. If he's indeed available, the veteran point guard is expected to have his playing time monitor carefully, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Questionable Tuesday

    Walker (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Walker is questionable to miss his third straight game with a left knee injury. The veteran guard's next opportunity to suit up will be Thursday's contest versus the Rockets if he's ruled out Tuesday. Mavericks coach Jason Kidd said that Walker playing 42 minutes on Dec. 17 caused issues with his knee, and his playing time will have to be carefully managed, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. For fantasy purposes, Walker is someone managers in daily leagues can monitor, but chances are he'll be far too inconsistent to feel good about starting in weekly leagues.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Scores 14 points off bench

    Walker delivered 14 points (3-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 24 minutes off the bench in Monday's 116-106 loss at Minnesota.

    Walker returned to the bench after Luka Doncic moved to back to the starting lineup, but he saw extended minutes after the former was ejected in the third quarter. Walker has scored in double digits in his last two outings, but he should continue to fill a backup role behind Doncic. Walker should only see big minutes if the Slovenian needs rest or picks up an injury.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Returns to bench role

    Walker isn't starting Monday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Walker drew a spot start at point guard Saturday night with Luka Doncic (quadriceps) out, but he'll return to his usual role on the bench with Doncic back in action Monday evening.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Vintage performance Saturday

    Walker closed with 32 points (12-25 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and one block over 42 minutes during Saturday's 100-99 overtime loss to the Cavaliers.

    Walker stepped into the starting lineup Saturday, turning back the clock in what was his best performance in recent memory. Both Luka Doncic (quad) and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) were out in this one, affording Walker an opportunity to relive his glory days. Prior to this, he had played no more than 20 minutes in either of his previous three appearances and had a minimal impact. While it was nice to take a trip down memory lane, managers won't want to go chasing this performance unless both Doncic and Dinwiddie miss further time.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Making first start of season

    Walker will start Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Mark Followill of Bally Sports Southwest reports.

    With Luka Doncic (quad) and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) sidelined, Walker enters the starting lineup in what will be just his third appearance with Dallas. Walker has averaged 7.0 points, 3.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 16.5 minutes per game this season and should handle a much larger workload Saturday.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Strong production in 2022-23 debut

    Walker played 19 minutes and finished with eight points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one block in 19 minutes in Saturday's 144-115 loss to the Bulls.

    The Mavericks were defeated soundly while star Luka Doncic (quadriceps) sat out the second half of a back-to-back set, but the absence of Doncic at least allowed Kidd to ease Walker into the mix in a low-stress setting for his 2022-23 debut. As Kidd indicated would be the case, Walker was capped at 20 minutes, and he might not see his playing time expand much beyond that level while he continues to manage his thrice surgically repaired left knee. When available, Walker should at least provide a lift to a Dallas second unit that's lacking in scoring threats beyond big man Christian Wood.

  • Mavericks' Kemba Walker: Will see 15-to-20 minutes Saturday

    Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd said Walker is expected to receive 15-to-20 minutes during Saturday's game at Chicago, Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Walker will make his team debut with Luka Doncic (quadriceps), Josh Green (elbow) and Maxi Kleber (foot) sidelined. It will be the veteran point guard's first NBA action since February. In 37 appearances for the Knicks last season, he averaged 11.6 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 25.6 minutes.
