Bradley Beal:

4/4 FG
3 assists

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
This has been a superb start for Bradley Beal, not just with his shooting but also with his decision-making in giving up the ball when Dallas brings two defenders to him. Beal is 4-for-4 from the field & has also been unselfish, with three assists. Washington leads Dallas 19-15. – 8:51 PM

Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
Jalen Brunson (left foot injury) and Frank Ntilikina (right calf strain) will both miss tonight’s game against Washington. – 7:17 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wes Unseld Jr. says Deni Avdija will spend some time guarding Luka Doncic tonight. Unseld Jr. says part of defending Doncic is not being too aggressive because it plays into his hands; he draws fouls and creates open 3s for others. – 7:13 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
With Spencer Dinwiddie out, Aaron Holiday will start tonight in Dallas. Full starters:
Holiday
Beal
KCP
Kuzma
Gafford – 7:02 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
With Spencer Dinwiddie out on the second night of a back-to-back, tonight’s Wizards starters in Dallas will be Aaron Holiday, Bradley Beal, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma and Daniel Gafford. – 7:00 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Spencer Dinwiddie is listed as OUT with right knee injury maintenance against Dallas. – 6:58 PM

Jalen Brunson will be out tonight vs Washington (left foot). Jason Kidd said Brunson was sore after going through practice yesterday and is hopeful it’s just a one game absence – 6:54 PM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Per JKidd: Brunson is out tonight despite going through practice yesterday. Mavs-Wizards 7:40 tip @theeagledallas6:51 PM

Jalen Brunson out tonight. Jason Kidd said he hopes it’s a one-game thing. – 6:51 PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Rod Boone @rodboone
Asked James Borrego if he thinks he will have a minutes restriction on PJ Washington since it is a back to back, and if he is concerned about his cardio.
“I mean, he’s been resting the whole year so I think we are going to be OK,” Borrego said. “I think we are going to be OK.” – 6:47 PM

Happy birthday to Brendan Haywood! 🥳

Spencer Dinwiddie (right knee injury maintenance) will not play Saturday night in Dallas. – 4:38 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
As expected, the Wizards have listed Spencer Dinwiddie as out for tonight’s game here in Dallas, continuing with the early season plan of resting Dinwiddie on the second nights of back-to-backs. Dinwiddie is not quite 11 months removed from surgery to repair a partial ACL tear. – 4:22 PM

Mark Followill @MFollowill
A shoutout to the good folks at Medical City Las Colinas. In their care most of Friday for my first ever kidney stone. Those are as bad as they’re made out to be. Listen to your body. Wish I had 3 wks ago & this may have been avoided. Anyway, see y’all tonight for Mavs vs Wizards – 3:57 PM
