After initially being listed as questionable, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle confirmed that Maxi Kleber would be available Thursday night when the Mavs play the Milwaukee Bucks. Carlisle also noted that Trey Burke would be available, reports Brad Townsend.
Kleber missed the Mavs’ Wednesday night encounter with the Houston Rockets with a leg injury. Otherwise, the big man has appeared in 36 games for Dallas, starting 30 of them, and averages 7.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists. Kleber had his worst outing of the season last time out from a fantasy perspective, putting up 7.0 FanDuel Fantasy Points against the Utah Jazz. It was the second time this season that he failed to record a point.
Burke has been even more unimpressive recently, failing to eclipse 3.5 FanDuel Fantasy Points in any of his last three games. Kleber has an $8,500 salary on the single-game FanDuel slate, and Burke has a $6,500 salary.
The Mavericks are 2.5 point favorites against the Bucks, and the total sits at 228.5 at FanDuel Sportsbook.
