Top McKinley Wright IV News

  • Mavericks' McKinley Wright: Will be available Sunday

    Wright (foot) will be available to play Sunday against the Clippers.

    Wright missed Dallas' last two games with a right foot sprain and had been listed as questionable heading into Sunday, but he'll ultimately be able to suit up for the Mavericks' final contest of the week. Prior to suffering the injury, Wright had taken hold of a spot in head coach Jason Kidd's rotation as a backup point guard, but the second-year player is averaging just 7.7 minutes per contest in January.

  • Mavericks' McKinley Wright: Questionable Sunday

    Wright (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

  • Mavericks' McKinley Wright: Plays career-high 23 minutes

    Wright chipped in two points (1-1 FG, 0-1 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 23 minutes during Thursday's 129-114 win over the Rockets.

    Wright randomly logged a career-high 23 minutes in the victory, shifting up in the rotation due to the fact the Mavericks were without a handful of regular rotation pieces. Despite the unexpected opportunity, Wright failed to make the most of his uptick in playing time, registering very little in terms of tangible production. Simply put, there is no need to pay too much attention to this situation.
