Mar. 17 5:48 PM PT6:48 PM MT7:48 PM CT8:48 PM ET0:48 GMT8:48 5:48 PM MST7:48 PM EST4:48 UAE (+1)01:4820:48 ET6:48 PM CTNaN:� - Dirk Nowitzki scored 10 points Friday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks fell to the Philadelphia 76ers 116-74.

Analysis: Averaging 20.2 points and 6.6 rebounds while shooting 47.8 percent (11 of 23) from beyond the arc over his last five games, it appears Nowitzki's days as a fantasy asset aren't over just yet.
Feb. 13 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET4:34 GMT12:34 9:34 PM MST11:34 PM EST8:34 UAE05:3423:34 ET10:34 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki had 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals Monday against Boston.

Analysis: The Mavericks gave their aging superstar most of the night off in a game that was over by the second quarter. Now over his early-season injury issues, Nowitzki is back to being a fantasy factor during a three-game stretch in which he's averaged 19.7 points.
Feb. 9 8:05 PM PT9:05 PM MT10:05 PM CT11:05 PM ET4:05 GMT12:05 9:05 PM MST11:05 PM EST8:05 UAE05:0523:05 ET10:05 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki scored 20 points Thursday against Utah, giving him at least 20 in consecutive games for the first time this season.

Jan. 19 6:52 PM PT7:52 PM MT8:52 PM CT9:52 PM ET2:52 GMT10:52 7:52 PM MST9:52 PM EST6:52 UAE (+1)03:5221:52 ET8:52 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki had one of his best games of the season with 19 points in a loss at Miami on Thursday.

Jan. 15 12:42 PM PT1:42 PM MT2:42 PM CT3:42 PM ET20:42 GMT4:42 1:42 PM MST3:42 PM EST0:42 UAE (+1)21:4215:42 ET2:42 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki contributed 17 points, six rebounds and three blocks to the Mavericks' 98-87 win over Minnesota on Sunday.
Analysis: Nowitzki is averaging 20.3 points and gone 11 of 19 from 3-point range during what's by far the best three-game stretch of his injury-plagued season. The 19-year veteran continues to receive around 30 minutes per game, making him a usable but unspectacular fantasy option as long as he's in the lineup.
Jan. 13 6:08 AM PT7:08 AM MT8:08 AM CT9:08 AM ET14:08 GMT22:08 7:08 AM MST9:08 AM EST18:08 UAE15:089:08 ET8:08 AM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki dropped in 18 points in 30 minutes and added six rebounds during the Mavericks' win over Phoenix in Mexico City on Thursday.

Jan. 9 7:29 PM PT8:29 PM MT9:29 PM CT10:29 PM ET3:29 GMT11:29 8:29 PM MST10:29 PM EST7:29 UAE (+1)04:2922:29 ET9:29 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki set season highs with 26 points, five 3-pointers and 31 minutes in Monday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: The big German has scored in double figures in five straight games, averaging 14.4 while adding 5.8 rebounds. Nowitzki's playing time has increased each of the last five games, a sign that he is getting healthier.
Dec. 29 10:18 AM PT11:18 AM MT12:18 PM CT1:18 PM ET18:18 GMT2:18 11:18 AM MST1:18 PM EST22:18 UAE19:1813:18 ET12:18 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki has been cleared to play Friday after missing Thursday's game due to an illness.
Analysis: The good news is Nowitzki's absence had nothing to do with the Achilles injury that's limited him to a mere eight games this season.
Dec. 24 10:02 PM PT11:02 PM MT12:02 AM CT1:02 AM ET6:02 GMT14:02 11:02 PM MST1:02 AM EST10:02 UAE07:021:02 ET12:02 AM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki logged 10 points and four assists in 17 minutes Monday in his second game back from a strained Achilles.
Analysis: The Mavericks are going to gradually increase the 38-year-old's minutes, so he's more of a stash player for fantasy purposes at the moment. Dallas plays again Tuesday night, and there's a good chance Nowitzki sits that game out with the injury still a long-term concern.
Nov. 27 8:03 AM PT9:03 AM MT10:03 AM CT11:03 AM ET16:03 GMT0:03 9:03 AM MST11:03 AM EST20:03 UAE17:0311:03 ET10:03 AM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki will return Friday against the Clippers after missing the past 14 games with a strained Achilles.
Analysis: Achilles problems have kept the 38-year-old out of all but five games this season, so it appears likely his minutes will be limited upon returning.
Nov. 25 6:32 PM PT7:32 PM MT8:32 PM CT9:32 PM ET2:32 GMT10:32 7:32 PM MST9:32 PM EST6:32 UAE (+1)03:3221:32 ET8:32 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki scored 15 points on 7-of-18 shooting with six rebounds Friday in his fifth game of the season because of an injured right Achilles.
Analysis: It's hard to judge Nowitzki because the Mavs are just a mess right now and he's playing under a minutes limit as he works his way back into game shape after a long layoff. It'll be interesting to see if the consistent losing wears on the veteran and if he could just shut it down at some point this season.
Nov. 4 6:40 AM PT7:40 AM MT8:40 AM CT9:40 AM ET13:40 GMT21:40 6:40 AM MST8:40 AM EST17:40 UAE14:409:40 ET7:40 AM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki made his long-awaited return Wednesday, netting 10 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes in the Mavericks' loss to the Clippers.
Analysis: Nowitzki was understandably rusty in his first game since Nov. 4, finishing 3 for 10 from the field. The Mavericks will continue to monitor the 38-year-old's minutes as he makes his way back from a sore Achilles, so his fantasy value isn't particularly high at the moment.
Oct. 30 5:53 PM PT6:53 PM MT7:53 PM CT8:53 PM ET0:53 GMT8:53 5:53 PM MST7:53 PM EST4:53 UAE (+1)01:5320:53 ET6:53 PM CTNaN:� - Nowitzki returned to the Mavericks' starting lineup Wednesday but had only nine points on 4-of-14 shooting in a loss at Utah.
Analysis: The future Hall of Famer had missed Dallas' last two games with a sore Achilles and a stomach ailment. He played 29 minutes Wednesday but was ineffective.
