Raymond Felton tweaked his right ankle injury in practice Tuesday, but it isn't believed to be serious.

Felton's suspension continue to be put off because of his injury. He was deemed inactive Monday which pushed it off again. If this re-tweak of the ankle does cause him more time, then his suspension will again have to be postponed.

Brandan Wright had 13 points (6-6 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with four rebounds and two blocks in the Mavericks' 111-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

The only way to get Wright to miss might be to foul him, as he's shooting a league-leading 79 percent from the field. He wasn't thought of as a fantasy contributor coming into the season, but can definitely help any team in need of a boost to their shooting percentages.

Monta Ellis had 24 points (9-19 FGA, 5-8 FTA) and went one-for-five from deep with six assists, three rebounds, and two steals in the Mavericks' 111-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Ellis shoots and scores more than any other Maverick and has scored at least 14 points in every game this season. His current 48 percent shooting would be his best mark since his breakout third year on the Warriors, and he's chipping in nearly five assists per game as well. Ellis is finally coming into his own after years of aimless basketball in Milwaukee and is now one of the best combo guards in the game.

Chandler Parsons had 16 points (6-13 FGA, 1-2 FTA) and went three-for-six from deep with three rebounds, two steals, an assist, and a block in the Mavericks' 111-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Parsons' shot has always been streaky, and he's heating up after a slow start to the season on his new team. He's within shouting distance of his season averages from last year and should continue to boost his efficiency as he gets comfortable in Dallas' offense.

Dirk Nowitzki had 22 points (9-17 FGA, 2-2 FTA) and went two-for-four from deep with 11 rebounds, an assist, and a block in the Mavericks' 111-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Dirk's 11 rebounds were a season-high and his 33 minutes were one off his longest night of the year. After sitting out a slew of blowout fourth quarters over the last few weeks he played to the end in Dallas' second straight loss. He's the focal point of the best offense in the league and continues to be one of the best scorers in the game even at age 36.

Raymond Felton is inactive Monday despite being healthy and done with his suspension.

Even had he been active, he would be behind Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea in terms of playing time. He was suspended due to gun charges, and is working through an ankle injury as well. Until he starts logging significant minutes, he is not relevant for fantasy purposes.

Mavericks have recalled Ricky Ledo from the Texas Legends.

Ledo will come up from the D-League and provide some frontcourt depth to their bench. It is unclear as to how long he'll be up and how much he'll actually contribute, but keep your expectations, for fantasy purposes, low

Brandan Wright came off the bench and scored 14 points (6-7 FGA, 2-2 FTA) with 11 rebounds and three blocks against the Rockets on Saturday.

Wright apparently forgot how to miss over the offseason and is suddenly a surprisingly viable fantasy big man. While he usually doesn't rebound at quite this rate, he can be a key addition for any team in need of help in field goal percentage.

Monta Ellis scored 17 points (7-21 FGA, 2-4 FTA) while going 1-for-6 from three-point range with six rebounds, four assists and one steal against the Rockets on Saturday.

Monta isn't shy about shooting regardless of results, and nights like tonight are the cost of that confidence. He's still a key cog in Dallas' offense and is talented enough that his owners can put up with the occasional off night, especially against what has been the best defense in the league to date.
