Top Maxi Kleber News

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Will play Friday

    Kleber (toe) will be available to play Friday against the Celtics.

    Kleber sat out the second leg of a back-to-back Wednesday, but he'll be back in action Friday night and he should be ready to resume his usual workload in the mid-20s. With Kleber back in the rotation, Daniel Gafford will likely see his minutes dip.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Ruled out for Wednesday

    Kleber (toe) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    Kleber will rest on the second leg of the Mavericks' back-to-back set, but he should be back in action for Friday's game in Boston. While Kleber is sidelined Wednesday, centers Dereck Lively and Daniel Gafford and big man P.J. Washington should all have higher minutes floors.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Doubtful for Wednesday

    Kleber (toe, nose) is doubtful for Wednesday's game versus Toronto.

    Wednesday's game is the second leg of a back-to-back set, and it appears the veteran will get the night off to rest his various injuries. Derrick Jones and P.J. Washington could see a slight uptick in minutes as a result.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go Tuesday

    Kleber (nose) is available for Tuesday's game versus Cleveland.

    Kleber had been listed as probable heading into Tuesday, and as anticipated, he'll be able to suit up for a third straight contest after he had previously missed Dallas' final game before the All-Star break. Expect Kleber to continue to hold down a 20-to-25-minute role while working as a backup at either frontcourt spot.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Listed as probable again

    Kleber (nose) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Kleber, Luka Doncic (nose), Dereck Lively (nose) and Josh Green (elbow) are all probable, so while the Mavericks' injury report is long, they'll likely be close to full strength versus Cleveland. Kleber's operated off the bench in his last three appearances and hasn't produced much, averaging 5.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 24.7 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go

    Kleber (nose) is available for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    As expected, Kleber, Luka Doncic (nose) and Dereck Lively (nose) have all been upgraded from probable to available. With Dallas' frontcourt at full strength, Kleber is expected to come off the bench, but he should still play a sizable role. On Friday, he posted seven points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during a win over Phoenix.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Another probable tag

    Kleber (nose) is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Kleber is expected to play in his second straight game Sunday despite having his injury designation change from a toe injury to a nasal fracture. If Kleber is upgraded to available, he should continue to serve as one of Dallas' primary options off the bench in the frontcourt.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Available for Thursday

    Kleber (toe) will be available for Thursday's game against the Suns, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Kleber should be good to go for minutes in the mid-20s Thursday, but on a 12-game night, there are more attractive streaming options out there. Kleber should be good for some triples, but he doesn't offer a ton outside of that one category.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Likely to play Thursday

    Kleber (toe) is listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Suns.

    Kleber is expected to return to action Thursday after missing Dallas' previous contest with a right dislocated toe. Encouragingly, Kleber participated in Wednesday's practice, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports. If Kleber is upgraded to available, he will likely serve as a primary backup in the Mavericks' frontcourt.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Ruled out Wednesday

    Kleber (toe) won't play in Wednesday's game versus the Spurs, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

    Kleber has been downgraded from questionable to out Wednesday due to a right small toe dislocation. The 31-year-old big man hasn't suffered a setback, but Dallas is opting to play it cautiously with the injury that caused him to miss a lengthy period earlier this season. Kleber should be available to suit up against Phoenix on Feb. 22 after the All-Star break.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Iffy against Spurs

    Kleber is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Spurs due to a right small toe dislocation and a nasal fracture, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Kleber has consistently received questionable tags but has played through his toe and nasal injuries, appearing in each of Dallas' last nine contests (five starts). If Kleber is cleared to play yet again, he will likely compete for backup center minutes.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Headed to bench Monday

    Kleber will play with the second unit while Daniel Gafford enters the starting lineup in Monday's game against the Wizards, Mark Followill of Bally Sports Southwest reports.

    Kleber exiting the starting lineup could mark the beginning of a new trend in Gafford's second game with the Mavericks. Kleber is averaging 3.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 11 games off the bench this season.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Available against Washington

    Kleber (toe) is available for Monday's game against Washington, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kleber continues to deal with a right small toe dislocation, but he was probable ahead of Monday's game and will officially be able to suit up once again. He could draw another start since Dereck Lively (nose) has been ruled out.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Tagged as probable for Monday

    Kleber (toe) will be listed as probable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Kleber has been a regular on Dallas injury reports throughout February, but he has yet to miss any games this month while being listed with a right small toe dislocation as well as a nasal fracture. The 32-year-old made his fifth straight start in Saturday's 146-111 win over the Thunder, finishing with 12 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes. With the Mavericks already ruling out Dereck Lively (nose) for Monday's contest, Kleber could start again and will likely be in store for a split of the minutes at center with the newly acquired Daniel Gafford.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Set to play Saturday

    Kleber (toe) is available for Saturday's game versus the Thunder, Brett Dawson of SelloutCrowd.com reports.

    Kleber has been upgraded from questionable to available Saturday despite dealing with a dislocated toe. With Dereck Lively (nose) out, Kleber should continue to start at center.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Questionable for Saturday

    Kleber (toe) is questionable for Saturday's game against Oklahoma City.

    Kleber has dealt with a dislocated toe recently but has been available for the last seven games. During that time, he's averaged 7.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 24.4 minutes per game. However, he could see his role decline if P.J. Washington (recently traded) makes his team debut Saturday.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Available for Thursday

    Kleber (toe) will be available to play Thursday against the Knicks.

    With Dereck Lively (nose) still out and Grant Williams heading to Charlotte, Kleber should remain a starter and get all the run he can handle. However, he's not the most consistent producer, so there are likely better streaming options available on Thursday's nine-game slate.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Questionable for Thursday

    Kleber (toe) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    Kleber has been available for the last six matchups, but he continues to deal with a dislocated toe. He's started in his last three appearances, averaging 14.0 points, 3.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 30.3 minutes per game.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go Tuesday

    Kleber (toe) is active for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Kleber will suit up for his sixth consecutive game, and he has logged at least 27 minutes in his last two appearances -- both of which have been starts. Dereck Lively (nose) remains sidelined Tuesday, so Kleber's size and spacing ability could be leaned on against opposing center Nic Claxton.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Listed as probable

    Kleber (toe/rest) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

    Kleber racked up 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists and one block in 27 minutes during Monday's 118-102 win over the 76ers and will likely play in the second half of Dallas' back-to-back set Tuesday. When healthy, Kleber is an important rotational piece for the Mavericks.
