The Dallas Mavericks are now 34-25 after Wednesday night's victory over the Toronto Raptors, and the sky is the limit for this team.

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are continuously proving that they are a top duo in the NBA while the supporting cast is also stepping up. P.J. Washington shot the ball extremely well against Toronto, as he knocked down five 3-pointers and put his poor shooting performances behind him.

The Mavs are looking like they can contend in the Western Conference, but they must stay healthy.

One-sentence progress reports of all 14 Dallas Mavericks players on the roster

Dallas is finally starting to get healthy, but they must maintain their health to remain as serious contenders. Dante Exum returned to the lineup after being out for a month on Wednesday, and him remaining on the court will be crucial for Dallas.

Without further ado, here are one-sentence progress reports of all 14 Dallas Mavericks players on the roster.

End-of-bench guys

Markieff Morris

Markieff Morris provided size on the wing when Dallas needed it, but has shifted into someone whose biggest impact is his positivity on the bench and his relationship with his teammates.

Dwight Powell

Dwight Powell went from having the chance to start to not playing at all and has maintained a positive attitude through it all.

Olivier-Maxence Prosper

Olivier-Maxence Prosper has as much potential as anyone on this roster, but his struggles as a shooter and playing out of control have limited him to garbage time minutes.

Role players

Derrick Jones Jr.

Derrick Jones Jr. started the season hot from downtown but has been unreliable as of late as his jumper has come back down to earth.

Jaden Hardy

Hardy's minutes have been extremely inconsistent, but he makes the most of his minutes every time he plays and looks like he could be Dallas' sixth man one day.

Dante Exum

Injuries have derailed Dante Exum's first year in Dallas, but he has been a phenomenal glue guy on both ends of the floor when healthy.

Maxi Kleber

Maxi Kleber does everything that doesn't come up on the stat sheet and is an essential piece of the rotation due to his defense, 3-point shooting ability, and versatility.

Daniel Gafford

Daniel Gafford has been the perfect backup big man due to his rebounding and defense, and the energy he brings is contagious.

Tim Hardaway Jr.

Tim Hardaway Jr.'s inconsistency is a problem, but his shooting remains vital for the Mavericks and winning.


Josh Green

Josh Green has turned into an everyday starter and his 3-point shooting from the corners and hustle is second to none.

Dereck Lively II

Dereck Lively II has been everything that Dallas needs out of a starting big man and more, and his shot-blocking, lob-catching, and feel for the game are excellent.

P.J. Washington

P.J. Washington quickly became Dallas' best defender and if he stays hot from downtown, he'll be the Mavs' third scorer moving forward.

Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving is one of the best fourth-quarter players in the NBA and his leadership and fit next to Luka Doncic have been great.

Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic continues to prove that he is one of the best players in the NBA and his improved shooting off the catch and defense have made him even more complete of a player.

For all the latest on Luka Doncic, P.J. Washington, Kyrie Irving, and the rest of the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
