An MRI revealed a minor bone bruise in Andrew Bogut's right knee and he's expected to spend at least the next two weeks on the sidelines.
This is probably the best news the Mavs could have got regarding their oft-injured center, but with Bogut and Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) out of commission, Dwight Powell will get his time to shine and he's someone to consider swooping up as a speculative add in standard leagues. Salah Mejri should be able to earn some starts sans Bogut, but he's more of a wait-and-see guy in deep leagues. Bogut only has 14th round value on the year, so he's not really worth holding through the injury. Dec 6 - 4:00 PM

Rick Carlisle said that he expects Andrew Bogut to miss at least the next three games "and probably longer," after suffering a right knee injury during Monday's loss to the Hornets.

Bogut is currently undergoing an MRI, so we should have an updated and official timetable for his return soon, but it doesn't seem very likely that he'll be able to get back to the court until at least next Tuesday's game (Dec. 12) against the Nuggets. Salah Mejri could draw a few starts in Bogut's absence, but Dwight Powell is the guy you want to add in standard leagues.
Dec 6 - 2:40 PM

The initial prognosis of the injury suffered by Andrew Bogut on Monday is a hyperextended right knee, which isn't believed to be serious.

"We don't think it's terribly serious," coach Rick Carlisle said. "At this point, it appears we dodged a bullet." A source expressed optimism that Bogut's injury would not be a long-term issue. He will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity. Salah Mejri may start in place of Bogut, but Dwight Powell is the biggest fantasy beneficiary. Powell scored 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 32 minutes on Monday night.

Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee on Monday vs. the Hornets, according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

X-rays came back negative and the injury isn't believed to be too serious, but the Mavs will be cautious since they don't have much to play for. Bogut finished scoreless on Monday with six rebounds in 10 minutes. Dwight Powell played 32 minutes with Bogut out and finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Salah Mejri only played eight minutes. Carlisle has started Mejri in the past when Bogut was on the shelf, so both players are on the fantasy radar with Powell offering more upside.
Dec 5 - 11:20 PM

Andrew Bogut (right knee) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

The Mavericks will likely run some tests on him and there should be another update after the game. He was ruled out about 10 minutes after he went down with the injury, so that's usually not a good sign. If you're in a deeper league and need a big, Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri should both be on your radar.
Dec 5 - 9:23 PM

Andrew Bogut (leg) left Monday's game vs. the Hornets and went back to the locker room.

It's being called a lower right leg injury for now and he should be considered questionable to return. If Bogut misses time, both Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri should benefit the most. Stay tuned.
Dec 5 - 9:10 PM

The Mavs reportedly have no immediate intention of trading away Andrew Bogut, as they are currently focused on salvaging their season.

Dallas is currently sitting on the second-worst record in the league at 4-15, and with Dirk Nowitzki 38 years old and dealing with Achilles issues, it doesn't seem likely that they'll suddenly be able to turn things around. The Mavs do understand that Bogut has significant trade value as a complementary piece to a championship squad, and they acknowledge that a move could be made once they're mathematically eliminated from the playoff hunt. In other words, Bogut is unlikely to finish the year in Dallas, and Boston has already been linked to him.

Celtics reporter A. Sherrod Blakely believes the team will go after Andrew Bogut before the trade deadline.

The Celtics could use some additional rim protection to partner with Al Horford, and Bogut should be readily available -- he's on the last year of his deal and the Mavs are rebuilding. Bogut's long-term fantasy outlook would get a bump in Boston because his owners wouldn't have to worry about frequent maintenance days and the shut-down risk if he remains in Dallas. For what it's worth, Blakely believes the Celtics would need to trade Amir Johnson and a future first-round pick to make the deal worth it for Dallas.

Andrew Bogut returned from a day of rest and had a season-high eight points, 11 rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in 22 minutes before fouling out on Saturday.

He's averaging just 4.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.5 blocks over his last four games played, and while the rebounds are fun, the non-existent scoring and blocks are not. Add in that he's always a candidate to miss games and he's barely worth owning in most fantasy leagues, especially when an eight-point night in December is your season high in scoring.
Dec 4 - 1:03 AM

Andrew Bogut (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Thursday.

Bogut will get a rest day on the second half of the Mavs back-to-back, and Salah Mejri will likely draw the start in his stead. Mejri is worth a look in daily fantasy leagues, while Bogut is worth holding onto as a blocks and boards specialist.
Dec 1 - 12:10 PM

Andrew Bogut (calf) looked good in his return on Wednesday, posting four points with 12 rebounds (four offensive), six assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

The Mavs' big man got off to a quiet start this year, averaging just 3.8 points on 41.3 percent shooting with 9.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 25.6 minutes. He picked apart the Clippers with his passing tonight, and helped Dallas earn a 44-43 edge in rebounding, but it wasn't nearly enough as Dallas fell at home 124-104. If you own Bogut as a blocks and boards specialist, feel free to run him out there.

Andrew Bogut (calf) will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He is back after missing the last game. Bogut logged a surprising 34 minutes on Saturday, so don't expect the Mavs to play him that much.
Nov 23 - 8:21 PM

Rick Carlisle confirmed that Andrew Bogut (calf) will play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

With Bogut back in action, Salah Mejri will return to the bench, and his value will take a significant hit with the demotion to the second unit. The Clippers are a good matchup for Bogut, so feel free to get him active.
Nov 23 - 1:11 PM

Andrew Bogut (calf) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

Bogut said that he's hopeful he'll be able to take the court tonight, and after getting through an hour of practice on Tuesday without a setback, things are trending in a positive direction. Owners will need to check back on his status closer to tip-off, but if he is able to return to the court tonight, Salah Mejri's value would take a massive hit with the return to the bench.

Andrew Bogut (calf) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

Bogut practiced for an hour on Tuesday and head coach Rick Carlisle said "there's a chance" that he'd be available on Wednesday, so he's more than likely headed for a game-time call. If he is able to return, Salah Mejri would return to the bench, and his value would take a pretty massive hit with the demotion. Stay tuned.
