Mavericks' Markieff Morris: Plays for first time in two weeks
Morris (knee) played 11 minutes in Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers, recording three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two assists.
Morris made his first appearance off the bench since March 13, with his two-week absence partially the result of a knee injury and partially the result of him not being included in head coach Jason Kidd's rotation. Maxi Kleber (hamstring) sat out Monday, but because he was believed to be sidelined for maintenance purposes more than anything, he could be back in action Wednesday in Philadelphia. If that's the case, Morris could find himself right back out of Kidd's rotation once again.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Cashes in on defensive end
Irving provided 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six assists, three rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 30 minutes in Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.
Dallas ended a four-game losing streak in emphatic fashion, and it didn't require big minutes or production from either Irving or Luka Doncic (25 points in 28 minutes) to easily dispatch the shorthanded Pacers. Though the suppressed playing time took a huge night off the table for Irving, he still paid dividends for managers by providing efficient scoring to go with ample defensive production. The three blocks were one short of matching a season high.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Dealing with knee sprain
Ntilikina is questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to a right knee sprain.
Ntilikina has been in and out of the Mavericks' rotation in March, but he appears to have suffered a knee sprain during Monday's win over Indiana. He played 16 minutes and posted five points, two assists, one rebound and one assist during that contest, so if he's forced to miss time, a few more minutes could be available for Jaden Hardy, Justin Holiday and Theo Pinson....

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Listed as questionable
Kleber (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.
Kleber took a seat for the second half of a back-to-back set Monday to rest his surgically repaired hamstring but has a chance to return to game action Wednesday. Before his absence, he appeared in eight straight contests (five starts), averaging 5.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Justin Holiday: Limited during Monday's win
Holiday ended with four points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in nine minutes during Monday's 127-104 victory over the Pacers.
Even with Maxi Kleber (hamstring) sidelined, Holiday was unable to make a significant impact. He's scored in double figures during just one of his 12 March appearances, averaging 3.3 points in 14.7 minutes during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Christian Wood: Plays just 12 minutes in win
Wood ended with six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one block across 12 minutes during Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.
Even with Maxi Kleber (hamstring) sidelined, Wood still tied his season low with 12 minutes played. The talented forward has been held under 20 minutes in back-to-back games and has totaled just 15 points during those contests after scoring in double figures in 16 of his previous 17 appearances....

Mavericks' Jaden Hardy: Leads bench with 20-point outing
Hardy ended with 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and three steals over 24 minutes during Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.
Dallas raced out to a big lead early in the contest, allowing head coach Jason Kidd to hold both Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic under 30 minutes while supporting-cast players received elevated minutes. Hardy posted the most notable stat line of the Mavs' reserves, as he reached the 20-point mark for the eighth time this season and for the third time in the last four contests. He supplemented the efficient scoring with solid production in the assists and steals categories, though the rookie typically doesn't offer useful returns in those areas with any sort of regularity....

Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Puts up 25 points in 28 minutes
Doncic registered 25 points (8-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and one steal across 28 minutes during Monday's 127-104 victory over the Pacers.
After the NBA rescinded the 16th technical foul of the season that Doncic picked up in Sunday's loss to the Hornets, the star point guard was cleared to play Monday rather than serving an automatic one-game suspension. Thanks to the blowout, head coach Jason Kidd was able to manage Doncic's minutes on the second leg of the back-to-back set, though Doncic still came through with a serviceable line despite handling less playing time than usual. Doncic's next technical foul will still trigger a one-game suspension, so he'll have to tread lightly with the officials over the next two weeks to avoid any missed time during a critical juncture of the season for the Mavericks, who currently sit a half game behind the Lakers and Thunder for the final two spots in the Western Conference Play-In Tournament....

Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Reaches double figures in start
Hardaway racked up 13 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 127-104 win over the Pacers.
Hardaway made his first start after three appearances off the bench, finishing as one of four starters and six Mavericks players to surpass the double-digit scoring mark. Hardaway has tallied 10 or more points in seven of his last 10 contests.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Josh Green: Retreats to bench
Green isn't starting Monday against the Pacers, Grant Afseth of DallasBasketball.com reports.
Green started Sunday against Charlotte and tallied two points and a steal in 14 minutes. However, he'll come off the bench Monday while Tim Hardaway draws the start.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Starting Monday
Hardway is starting Monday's contest against the Pacers.
After three straight appearances off the bench, Hardaway is starting Monday's contest with Maxi Kleber (hamstring) ruled out. The veteran guard has started in 40 outings this season, averaging 15.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists over 33.3 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Out Monday
Kleber (hamstring) is out for Monday's contest against the Pacers.
Kleber is out for Monday's contest as he tends to a right hamstring injury that sidelined him for 35 straight games earlier this season. The likes of Christian Wood, Reggie Bullock and Davis Bertans emerge as candidates to receive more usage against the Pacers. Kleber's next chance to suit up comes Wednesday in Philadelphia....

Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Won't face suspension Monday
Doncic won't be suspended for Monday's game against the Pacers after the league rescinded his 16th technical foul.
Doncic was issued a technical foul during Sunday's loss to the Hornets, but he'll be available for the second half of the back-to-back set after the league reversed the call. However, the Mavericks still have seven regular-season games remaining, and it's possible he'll be unavailable for one of those matchups if he's called for a technical foul in any of those games. Doncic has been on a tear since returning from a five-game absence, averaging 34.7 points, 11.0 assists and 9.7 rebounds in 39.3 minutes per game over his last three appearances.... See More ...

Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Questionable for Monday's contest
Kleber is questionable for Monday's matchup against Indiana due to right hamstring injury recovery.
Kleber came off the bench Sunday and scored 14 points (4-9 FG) in 32 minutes, but he may take a seat for the second half of Dallas' back-to-back set to manage the left hamstring injury that sidelined him for three months earlier in the season. If that's the case, Christian Wood, Reggie Bullock, Davis Bertans and Josh Green would all be candidates for increased roles.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Productive in return to bench
Kleber closed with 14 points (4-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 loss to the Hornets.
After starting the prior five games, Kleber moved back to the second unit Sunday and had his best scoring performance since October, setting a new season high for made threes in the process. The 31-year-old's lack of consistent offense makes him a generally unappealing fantasy option, but his ability to contribute in both threes and blocks can allow him to pop on occasion as a bargain DFS tournament dart throw....

Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Hits for 15 in return
Hardaway amassed 15 points (5-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 36 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 loss to the Hornets.
The veteran wing had missed the last two games due to an illness, but Hardaway provided solid production off the bench in his return. With Luka Doncic set to be suspended for Monday's game against the Pacers after picking up his 16th technical foul of the season Sunday, Hardaway could pick up some of the scoring slack against Indiana.... See More ... See Less
Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Solid production in loss
Irving registered 18 points (5-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 loss to the Hornets.
The veteran guard has been struggling to get his shot to fall over the last week or so while dealing with a nagging foot injury and bouncing in and out of the lineup, but Irving has been able to supplement his scoring on the defensive end and has recorded at least one steal and one block in three straight games. He'll be flying solo Monday in Indiana, as Luka Doncic picked up his 16th technical foul of the season against Charlotte and faced an automatic one-game suspension. The last two times Irving played without Doncic, he poured in 38 points against the Lakers before laying 28 on the Grizzlies.... See More ... See Less
