News: Dallas recalled guard Jared Cunningham from the D-League on Saturday, reports NBA.com.
Analysis: Cunningham had been thinking about shutting it down for the season after a knee injury in late February so he must have improved enough to return. In either case, he doesn't figure to have any Fantasy value.
News: The Dallas Morning News reports that Mavericks guard Jared Cunningham is possibly done for the season due to tendinitis in his right knee. Cunningham told reporters that he is "out for a while" and is already setting his focus toward the 2013-14 season. My goal is to be completely ready for summer league, Cunningham said after the Mavericks shootaround. I want to get my body back to the way it was in college so I have my athleticism.
Analysis: Cunningham, the No. 24 overall pick in last year's draft, played eight games for the Mavericks this season, totaling just 26 minutes of game action. He spent 15 games in the D-League, averaging 5.3 points, 3 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 34.5 minutes per game. We'll continue to keep an eye on his progress moving forward. For now, the 21-year-old should not be considered a worthwhile Fantasy option in seasonal formats, when healthy.
News: For the second time this season, the Mavericks assigned guard Jared Cunningham to the NBA Development League on Monday. Cunningham, who averaged 18.1 points per game during his first stint at the lower level, was promoted by Dallas in late December.
Analysis: Cunningham was hardly visible in the Mavericks' rotation upon his promotion and appeared in just one game, logging a mere two minutes. The rookie out of Oregon State still needs to improve his shot selection and is not a worthwhile Fantasy option for now.
News: The Mavericks recalled guard Jared Cunningham from the D-League on Monday. "I think it's good to have high energy athletic guys around," coach Rick Carlisle told reporters. "He had a stint in the D-League, he got a chance to play some minutes, so now he'll be back with us until -- if and when -- we decide to have him go back down."
Analysis: Cunningham is expected to battle Darren Collison, Dominique Jones and Rodrigue Beaubois for playing time in his latest stint with the Mavericks. He averaged just 2.3 points in seven games for Dallas earlier in the year and poses minimal appeal in Fantasy at this point. Continue to ignore him in all formats.
News: The Mavericks assigned guard Jared Cunningham to the NBA Development League on Tuesday, giving him an opportunity to earn more minutes at the lower level. Cunningham, a rookie out of Oregon State, has appeared in just seven games with Dallas this season.
Analysis: Cunningham was battling a host of veterans for playing time at the point guard position and was held to just 3.4 minutes per game. He posted a decent average of 2.3 points a night considering the time crunch, but should not be viewed as a worthwhile Fantasy option for now.
News: The Mavericks announced Saturday the signing of their first-round pick, Jared Cunningham, to a rookie-scale deal. Cunningham was the 24th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, as Dallas acquired him in a draft-day trade.
Analysis: Cunningham spent three years at Oregon State, making First Team All-Pac 12 as a Junior, averaging 17.9 points and 2.8 assists per game. He will likely begin his career in a small role this season, making him more of a long-term Fantasy keeper option.
