Dirk Nowitzki went through the Dallas Mavericks' full practice session Monday and showed no signs of pain after he turned his left ankle late in Saturday's game.
With the Mavs not slated to play again until their season finale Wednesday, the ankle should be a non-issue. Given the report from practice, that seems to be the case already. You've got one more day from Nowitzki coming for you so feel free to keep him in your active lineup. Obviously double-check reports leading up to game-time, but all should be fine.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
