Kristaps Porzingis will not play vs. Celtics on Tuesday
The Dallas Mavericks won’t have their big man Kristaps Porzingis available against the Celtics on Tuesday night. Porzings missed the Mavericks’ win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday and remains out with back tightness for the second straight day. The Unicorn is second on the team in points (20.5) and rebounds (8.2) but has recently come under fire for his defense and had his name bandied about in trade rumors. Forward Max Kebler joins his center on the injured list and will also miss tonight’s game.
With Porzingis out, Dwight Powell and Willie Cauley-Stein will be popular targets at FanDuel DFS. Both men will see plenty of time at the center spot for a very thin Mavericks frontcourt. Cauley-Stein carries a $3700 price tag while Powell costs a thrifty $3500.
