The Mavericks waived Eric Griffin Tuesday.

The thought was that Griffin had a shot to win one of the final roster sports after performing well in the Las Vegas Summer League, but it looks like he's reached the end of the road in Dallas. While the 24-year-old may hook on with another team, he won't provide much fantasy value to owners in standard leagues.

The Mavericks waived G Yuki Togashi.

Togashi was just signed to a non-guaranteed contract just a week ago, but the Mavs were always thinking more about the D-League for him than anything else.

Coach Rick Carlisle said PG Raymond Felton (high ankle sprain) is making progress.

That's good to hear, since his original prognosis was to be out 10 days from his original October 10th injury. He is still a depth player, listed as fourth on the depth chart at point guard. A late round draft pick in fantasy leagues at best.

Dirk Nowitzki (rest) won't play in Saturday's preseason game.

Just a day off for Nowitzki as the regular season rapidly approaches. He'll be just fine for the start of the season and provide his usual fantasy totals.

Mavericks may weigh offers for Gal Mekel or Bernard James. It's worth noting that James can't be moved until December.

Both players are currently buried on the depth chart and would serve only as depth on the bench. Neither is worth a look in fantasy, so it's almost irrelevant to us which direction they decide to go.

Jameer Nelson is in the starting lineup on Friday.

The job at point guard is Nelson's for now, so he'll see starts if he can continue to play well.

Yuki Togashi officially signed with the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Togashi played professionally in Japan last season where he averaged 16.3 points, and 7.6 assists per game. It is uncertain what his playing time will be as they already have Jameer Nelson, and Devin Harris at the point guard position.

The Dallas Mavericks are finalizing paperwork to sign Japanese point guard Yuki Togashi. 

The 5-foot-7 point guard became a fan favorite during the Las Vegas Summer League, setting off "toga, toga, toga!" chants each time he checked in for the Dallas Mavericks. Togashi enjoyed incredible success in Japan's BJ league. Last season, he averaged 15.3 points and 7.6 assists per game while playing for the Akita Northern Happinets. Prior to that he graduated from Kevin Durant's alma mater, Montrose Christian in Maryland, but didn't receive any attention from Division I college basketballl programs stateside. Time will tell whether this sharpsooter can secure a lasting spot on an NBA roster, but it's clear that he's already secured a fan base among NBA fans and Animal House lovers alike.

Monta Ellis (sprained left knee) went through all of practice on Monday.

After suffering a sprained left knee, the Bucks expected him to miss just a couple games of preseason action. The injury is not considered serious. Over his career, Ellis has been extremely durable since his moped fiasco and has played in every game in each of the last two seasons. He's still worth a look in the early-middle rounds.

Mavericks’ Raymond Felton is out at least 10 days with a high ankle sprain.

He was fighting for the backup PG role with Devin Harris as Jameer Nelson is slated to be the starting PG for the Mavericks. Felton had minimal fantasy value before this injury and will have zero fantasy value if he ends up being the third string PG for the Mavs.
