UPDATES & NEWS
Nikola Pekovic (ankle) a game-time decision Monday.
Never fun for Fantasy Owners when you get the "game-time" decision. Pekovic did not participate in morning shoot around, but he will warmup before the game to see if he can give it a go. Right now we would guess that he is not going to play and if that's the case, Gorgui Dieng would step up into the starter role. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Chandler Parsons will not play on Monday.
Richard Jefferson will get the start again on Monday night for the Mavericks while Al-Farouq Aminu will continue to get his minutes increased. The Mavericks were hopeful to get Parsons back early this week but it looks like it could be a few more games. He has not played since February 20th. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Tyson Chandler will not play on Monday.
This will be a small lineup on Monday night for the Mavericks as one again Dirk Nowitzki will play center while we'll see J.J. Barea alongside both Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis in the backcourt, but we could also get a look at Bernard James getting time at the center position as well. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play on Monday.
There is no specific injury from which Lowry is suffering, but there are a world of minor bumps and bruises apparently. He missed Saturday's game to get some rest, he'll miss Monday as well and now there is word that he may sit for the entire week. The priority is full-health heading into the playoffs so the team will not take any unnecessary risks. Analysis: Howard Bender
