  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Questionable for Tuesday

    Lively (back) is questionable for Tuesday against Houston, Grant Afseth of reports. Lively was able to practice Monday, but the Mavericks want to see how his back responds Tuesday before making a decision. Richaun Holmes drew the start in Lively's place Saturday against the Clippers, but he failed to impress.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Won't return after ugly fall

    Lively has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Lakers with a lower back contusion. Lively took a scary fall on an alley-oop attempt and was assisted off the court before being ruled out for the rest of the tilt. While he's out, expect Dwight Powell and Richaun Holmes to see more action. Fantasy managers should be on the lookout for a status update prior to Saturday's meeting with the Clippers at 10:30 pm ET.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Grabs double-digit boards in loss

    Lively totaled six points (3-4 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes during Saturday's 132-125 loss to the Bucks. Lively turned in another decent performance despite the loss, continuing his impressive rookie campaign. Although he is typically playing fewer than 30 minutes, he remains the starting center. His production is likely to fluctuate based on both matchup and feel, limiting his season-long value. With that said, as long as he is starting, Lively should be rostered in most leagues.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Questionable Friday

    Lively (illness) is questionable for Friday's matchup against the Clippers. An illness prevented the rookie from suiting up Wednesday against the Raptors, prompting Dwight Powell to start at center. The Mavericks could certainly use Lively's size against opposing big man Ivica Zubac. Lively's workload and production have fluctuated this season, but he's worth rostering in 14-team formats and probably 12-team formats, especially if two starting centers are required.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Won't suit up Wednesday

    Lively (illness) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Raptors, Grant Afseth of reports. Lively has been downgraded from questionable to out Wednesday due to an illness. Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell will likely receive extended minutes in Lively's absence. The rookie center's next chance to suit up will be Friday's matchup with the Clippers.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Questionable to play

    Lively has an illness and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, according to Mavericks reporter Grant Afseth. Lively was not present at the morning shootaround, and it sounds like he could become a game-time call. Maxi Kleber (toe) is also questionable, so we could potentially see a lot of Dwight Powell on Wednesday evening.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Dominant in win

    Lively supplied 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and one block across 32 minutes during Sunday's 124-118 victory over the Hornets. Lively supplemented Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving combining for 41 points, 15 rebounds and 19 assists, as the big man showed off excellent chemistry with both. Lively protected the rim and sacrificed his body on defense as well, marking a legitimate two-way sparkplug for Dallas.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Impresses off bench in opener

    Lively ended with 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 126-119 win over San Antonio. Head coach Jason Kidd had stated that Lively could open the season as a starter, and while he came off the bench in this one, he still posted impressive numbers and above-average instincts for a player making his NBA debut. Lively can be an asset in most fantasy formats if he receives enough minutes, but as of now, his bench role limits his upside a bit.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Getting start for preseason opener

    Head coach Jason Kidd said over the weekend that he plans to start Lively at center in Thursday's preseason opener versus the Timberwolves in Abu Dhabi, Grant Afseth of reports. Kidd didn't commit to Lively or Olivier-Maxence Prosper maintaining spots in the starting five heading into the regular season, but both rookie first-round selections will get the chance to stake claims to spots on the top unit. If Lively is able to established himself as Dallas' top center, he likely wouldn't be in store for much usage while sharing the floor with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, but the 19-year-old could profile as an effective rim runner who converts the post touches he does receive at an elite rate. The 7-foot-1 Lively was also one of the NCAA's premier shot blockers during his lone season at Duke, swatting away 2.4 shots in just 20.6 minutes per appearance.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Nearly double-doubles

    Lively finished with nine points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 25 minutes during Friday's 112-91 Summer League win over Indiana. Lively has been extremely active in the Summer League, making winning plays and outworking his opponents on the glass. His stats across four games do leave a bit to be desired from a fantasy perspective, as he's averaging 8.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.8 blocks through four games.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Double-doubles in win

    Lively posted 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 98-96 overtime Summer League win over the Warriors. Lively recorded his first double-double of the Summer League on Wednesday. The No. 12 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft also showed off his impressive defensive potential, as he was altering shots at the basket all game. Lively could see playing time sooner rather than later for a Mavericks team that needs rim protection and a lob threat to complement Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Muted production in loss

    Lively posted four points (1-2 FG, 2-6 FT), five rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes during Saturday's 91-80 Summer League loss. Lively made his Summer League debut Saturday after being selected 12th overall in the 2023 NBA Draft. While his aggressiveness and trips to the free-throw line are encouraging, he struggled with his efficiency.
