News: Nowitzki (ankle) tallied 30 points (12-22 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, and four blocks in 46 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss to the Grizzlies. Impact: Nowitzki put together a triumphant performance after turning his ankle during Saturday's most recent outing. The German not only went for a whopping 30 points, but also surprised with four blocked shots. With a few more days of rest ahead of the playoffs, Nowitzki's ankle should be a non-factor moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Nowitzki turned his left ankle in Saturday's game against Phoenix, but went through all of the Mavericks' practice sessions on Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Impact: Nowitzki showed no signs of pain during Monday's practice and he expects to be in the starting lineup for the Mavs' regular season finale on Wednesday against the Grizzlies. Nowitzki missed just 19 seconds in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game after turning his ankle, and eventually finished the game. The ankle seems to be just fine but there is still the off chance that Mavs' coach Rick Carlisle could give Nowitzki the day off on Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

Despite turning his left ankle late in the fourth quarter, he returned to finish the game, the Dallas Morning News reports. Impact: Dallas has a three-day break before the team's final game Wednesday at Memphis, so Nowitzki's ankle may not be an issue. However, with Dallas clinching a playoff spot, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him rested in the final game.(RotoWire, )

News: Nowitzki could see his minutes ramped up Saturday in a pivotal game against the Suns, the Mavs' official site reports. Impact: The Mavericks are in a tight battle with Phoenix for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and Saturday's duel could be a make-or-break affair. Coach Rick Carlisle said Nowitzki, Shawn Marion and Vince Carter could all see more than their typical workload against the Suns. Nowitzki has averaged 34 minutes over his past five contests but could approach 40 minutes Saturday, making him a great play in daily leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Nowitzki recorded 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 34 minutes Thursday against the Spurs. Impact: With the Mavericks continuing to fight for a playoff spot as the regular season nears its end, Nowitzki should continue to play as much as possible to try and help his team grab the seventh or eighth seed. He remains a great scorer and has been quite efficient so far in April in addition to providing decent rebounding numbers.(RotoWire, )
