  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Good to go Monday

    Wood (thumb) has been upgraded to available for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Wood missed Dallas' last eight games with a fractured left thumb and is still dealing with some bruising, but it won't be anything that prevents him from playing for the first time since Jan. 18, per Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News. The Mavericks are missing Luka Doncic (heel), and Kyrie Irving won't be ready to make his team debut until Wednesday, so Wood could be in store for heavy usage in his return to action.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Questionable Monday

    Wood (thumb) is questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Wood has missed the last eight games due to a fractured left thumb, but the Mavericks hope he'll be able to return Monday against Utah or Wednesday against the Clippers. If he's available Monday, it wouldn't be surprising to see him face a minutes restriction.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Won't play Saturday

    Wood (thumb) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Golden State.

    Wood was considered unlikely to play Saturday, but the Mavericks are optimistic that he'll be available Monday against the Jazz or Wednesday against the Clippers. He's been progressing in his recovery from a fractured left thumb recently, as he was fully cleared for practice Thursday before participating in a post-practice scrimmage Friday. Dwight Powell should continue to see increased run Saturday, but Wood's return appears to be imminent.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Inching closer to return

    Wood (thumb) said he's unlikely to play Saturday against the Warriors, but there's a strong possibility he's able to suit up for Monday's matchup in Utah or Wednesday's contest versus the Clippers, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Wood was fully cleared for practice Thursday and participated in a post-practice scrimmage Friday, per Tim MacMahon of, but it appears he'll remain out for at least one more contest and attempt to return sometime during Dallas' upcoming five-game road trip. He's already missed seven consecutive matchups, but since he's not dealing with a lower-body issue, he shouldn't have conditioning limitations when he eventually suits up. Wood's return couldn't come at a better time, as the Mavericks lost Luka Doncic (heel) and Davis Bertans (calf) to injuries during Thursday's matchup against New Orleans, and it's currently unclear if those two will be able to play anytime soon.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Fully cleared for practice

    Wood (thumb) was cleared for full practice Thursday, Tim MacMahon of reports.

    Wood will remain out for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, but getting fully cleared for practice marks the final step in his recovery process from a fractured left thumb. He'll accompany the team on its upcoming five-game road trip, though it's unclear if Wood will get enough practice time under his belt to be available for Saturday's game at Golden State. Since he's not returning from any sort of lower-body injury, Wood shouldn't face a significant minutes restriction whenever he's cleared to play.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Won't play Thursday

    Wood (thumb) is out for Thursday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Head coach Jason Kidd said last Thursday that Wood will be re-evaluated in one week, meaning fantasy managers should get an update on his status sometime ahead of Dallas' upcoming matchup with the Pelicans. His next chance to suit up is Saturday's contest versus the Warriors.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Out at least one more week

    Coach Jason Kidd said Thursday that Wood (thumb) will be re-evaluated in one week, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.

    After sustaining a fractured left thumb a week ago against Atlanta, it seems that Wood will miss at least another week as he continues to recover. Expect the Mavericks to continue to rely on production from Dwight Powell and JaVale McGee while the center is out.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Sustains fractured thumb

    Wood sustained a fractured left thumb in the second quarter of Wednesday's game against Atlanta and will be re-evaluated next week.

    Wood had been especially productive for the Mavericks over the last few weeks, as he posted double-doubles in four of his last seven appearances and averaged 21.1 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 35.0 minutes per game. A better idea of his return timetable could come into focus once he's re-evaluated, but Dwight Powell, Davis Bertans and JaVale McGee are candidates to see increased run in Wood's absence.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Third straight 20-point game

    Wood logged 22 points (9-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 130-122 loss to the Hawks.

    Wood scored 11 of his 22 points in the third quarter on 4-of-6 shooting from the field before chipping in just two more points in the final period. He added nine boards in the contest, which tied Dorian Finney-Smith for the team lead, while also connecting on three attempts from beyond the arc for just the third time this month. Wood has now broken the 20-point mark in three straight contests and in five of his last six.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Claims double-double in loss

    Wood (ankle) registered 23 points (8-22 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and one block over 35 minutes during Sunday's 140-123 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    After sitting out Saturday's loss to Portland with a right ankle sprain, Wood checked back into the lineup for the second half of the back-to-back set without any limitations. Wood took home his 10th double-double of the season in the blowout loss, but some rough shooting from three-point range and limited production in the defensive categories made his line less valuable in eight- and nine-category leagues. On the whole, Wood has still been an excellent performer since moving into the starting five Dec. 17. While starting in each of his last 15 appearances, Wood is averaging 20.2 points, 9.4 boards, 2.4 blocks, 2.2 three-pointers, 2.1 assists and 0.6 steals while shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 81.2 percent from the charity stripe.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Available Sunday

    Wood (ankle) is available Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

    Wood sat out the first half of the Mavericks' back-to-back set against Portland on Saturday, but he'll be available a day later. He's posted double-doubles in three of his last five appearances and has averaged 20.6 points and 10.2 rebounds in 35.0 minutes per game during that time.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Considered questionable

    Wood (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Portland.

    Wood was held out of Saturday's loss to Portland with a right ankle sprain and is in danger of missing a second straight contest. If Wood is sidelined again, Dwight Powell and JaVale McGee would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Absent Saturday

    Wood (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Wood will take a night to let his sprained right ankle heal before potentially facing off against the Trail Blazers in the second game of a back-to-back set Sunday. In his stead Saturday, Dwight Powell and JaVale McGee will see increased roles.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Nabs questionable tag

    Wood is listed as questionable for Saturday's meeting with the Trail Blazers due to a sprained right ankle.

    Wood logged 24 points, 14 rebounds, six assists and five blocks across 46 minutes of Thursday's double-OT win over the Lakers and appears to have also picked up an ankle injury. Considering the massive workload, and the fact that the Mavericks face the Trail Blazers again Sunday as part of a back-to-back set, the team could opt to give Wood a rest. If that were to be the case, Dwight Powell and JaVale McGee would be in line for more minutes.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Huge line in double-overtime win

    Wood closed with 24 points (10-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, six assists, five blocks and one steal in 48 minutes during Thursday's 119-115 double-overtime victory over the Lakers.

    Wood played a season-high 47 minutes in the double-overtime victory, and he finished second on the Mavericks in scoring and assists while tying for the team lead in rebounds. His biggest impact may have been on the defensive end, where he tied a season high with five blocks. One of those swats came with Dallas up by one and under two minutes remaining, though Wood appeared to hurt his ankle when coming down after deflecting a Russell Westbrook layup attempt. However, after limping off the court, Wood returned to the contest and proceeded to block LeBron James on a layup try on Los Angeles' ensuing possession. Wood has started 13 of the Mavericks' past 15 contests and has emerged as the team's second-best weapon this season, averaging 18.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.8 three-pointers, 1.3 blocks and 0.5 steals over 40 games on the campaign.
