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.

Tyson Chandler scored 13 points (5-7 FGA, 3-3 FTA) with 13 rebounds and one assist during the Mavericks' 95-92 loss to the Rockets on Saturday.

Chandler took advantage of the Dwight-sized hole in the middle by dominating the paint all night. He's looked resurgent so far in Dallas this season. While he's never been an elite fantasy option, he's solid enough to deserve a roster spot.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 11 points (4-18 FGA, 3-4 FTA) while going 0-for-8 with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks during the Mavericks' 95-92 loss to the Rockets.

A surprising off night for Dirk considering Dwight Howard's absence coupled with the unusual amount of rest he's been able to get in recent games. The NBA's 9th all-time leading scorer should bounce back from a night like tonight with ease.

Devin Harris (leg) will play on Saturday against the Rockets.

Harris will rejoin the starting lineup after missing a game with a leg injury. He may be limited in terms of minutes on the court, but he'll take a primary role over Monta Ellis at shooting guard.

Dirk Nowitzki has not played a second in the fourth quarter in four of the last five games. He's averaging only 27 minutes per game, his lowest since his rookie season.

So what are we saying here? That the 36-year old who has dominated on the court for years and averaged no fewer than 31 minutes per game in any of the last 15 seasons is actually slowing down? Well, duh. Of course he is. However, he's still averaging 19.4 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, so he's still plenty productive. You can expect this for the majority of the regular season, but don;t be surprised to see him push himself a little harder if it means a playoff spot.

J.J. Barea scored 16 points (5-7 FGA, 1-2 FTA) going 5-for-5 from three point range with two rebounds and eight assists during the Mavericks' 140-106 win over the Lakers on Friday. 

Barea has rediscovered his mojo in Dallas as a bench scorer for probably the only team brave enough to play a 5' 10" shooting guard. The Mavs are incredibly deep at guard and his scoring output is hard to predict, but when he's on it's fun to watch. He's probably not much more than an injury fill-in in most leagues.

Monta Ellis scored 20 points (7-10 FGA, 3-3 FTA) going 3-for-4 from three point range with three rebounds and 10 assists during the Mavericks' 140-106 win over the Lakers on Friday. 

Cannot stress this enough: MONTA HAVE IT ALL. The Mavs took turns carving up the Lakers' "defense" tonight and Ellis had one of his most efficient games of the season on his way to a double-double. He's Dallas' most reliable perimeter scorer and will continue to rack up points, assists, and shot attempts in bunches.

Chandler Parsons scored 21 points (8-13 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 3-for-4 from three point range with two rebounds, and three assists during the Mavericks' 140-106 win over the Lakers on Friday. 

Parsons needed a game against the Lakers' nonexistent defense to help right the ship after a slow start to the season. Given his massive contract he'll get every opportunity to prove himself, and when he's on he can contribute in every category. If your league gives bonus points for modeling appearances, all the better.
