Rajon Rondo scored six points (3-11 FGA) with seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals in his Mavericks debut Saturday night. 

Rondo failed to get it going from the floor in his first game as a member of the Mavericks as he shot just 27.3 percent resulting in six points. However, the Mavericks do not need Rondo to be much of an offensive threat, considering both Monta Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki are both still on the team.

Tyson Chandler scored six points (1-2 FGA, 4-4 FTA) with 14 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in Saturday's 99-93 win over the Spurs.

Chandler his having himself a great season in his return to the Mavericks as he is now averaging 10.6 points and 11.6 rebounds through 28 games. Although his offense has been inconsistent, as long as he keeps hitting the boards he remains a must-start in all formats.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 13 points (4-14 FGA, 5-5 FTA) with three rebounds and three assists in the Saturday's 99-93 win over the Spurs.

Nowitzki struggled with his shot on Saturday night as he converted only 28.6 percent of his shots, which is far below his season average (46.9 FG%). However, he is still averaging 18.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 three-pointers through 26 games, making him a must-start even if his struggles from Saturday follow him.

Monta Ellis scored 38 points (15-23 FGA, 3-6 FTA) going 5-for-6 from three-point range with one assist and four steals in Saturday's 99-93 win over the Spurs.

Despite the presence of Rajon Rondo in the Mavericks backcourt, Ellis was able to post a game-high 38 points in the team's win over the Spurs. He is now averaging 21.3 points, 4.6 assists and 1.6 steals through 28 games which is more than enough to keep him in starting lineups even if his production decreases slightly moving forward.

Raymond Felton (ankle) is unlikely to be able to play before Christmas.

Felton opened the year serving a suspension and when he was able to finally return, his ankle injury was just too severe for him to run on. The Mavericks have not given any sort of a recovery timetable and it sounds like January is a potential target date.

Mavericks have recalled Ricky Ledo from the D-League.

Ledo goes back and forth and back and forth, never to really hold any fantasy value with such inconsistent playing time. He'll serve as bench depth once again for the Mavericks.

Rajon Rondo passed his physical and will play in Saturday's game against the Spurs.

It was looking to be a toss up as to whether Rondo would be able to play on Saturday, but it looks like he'll slide into the starting lineup and is good to go. Rondo was recently traded from the Celtics to the Mavericks, and will now have a better chance to compete for a play off spot. Rondo hasn't been doing great this season, but a trade to the Mavericks should give him a new opportunity to put up great numbers. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect immediate success from Rondo as he is joining a new offense with new teammates, but the move should eventually pay off for the stud point guard.

Rick Carlisle said there's a good chance Rajon Rondo will play Saturday against the Spurs.

Rondo is arriving late Friday and needs to log a little practice time with his new teammates. He should participate in the morning shootaround, but that might just not be enough to give him his usual minutes.

Rajon Rondo isn't practicing with the Mavericks on Friday. He will arrive in Dallas early Friday afternoon and get his physical.

Rondo may have a slight adjustment period to go through, but he should slide right in with the Mavericks soon enough and go on to being one of the top point guards in fantasy now that he's on a significantly more-talented team. He should be able to log some minutes Saturday against the Spurs.
