Description: Mavericks center Brandan Wright is out indefinitely with a non-displaced fracture of his left shoulder, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.
Insight: Wright won't need surgery but will be in a sling for at least 10 days. Once he's healed, he'll need to regain strength and range of motion so he's expected to miss regular season time. The team will reevaluate him on a week-to-week basis. With Wright out, Samuel Dalembert will see a boost in minutes.
 
7/23/2013 9:18:00 PM
Description: The Mavericks have re-signed center Brandan Wright to a two-year, $10 million contract.

Description: The Mavericks will start Brandan Wright at center for Dallas on Wednesday.
Insight: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle has shuffled his center position all season with Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Wright all getting starts. You can't trust any of them in fantasy.
 
1/2/2013 11:38:00 AM
Description: Mavericks' PF Brandan Wright is questionable for Wednesday's game against Miami due to a strained right quad.
Insight: The return of Dirk Nowitzki alongside big men Shawn Marion, Chris Kaman and Elton Brand means Wright was seeing his playing time drop even before the injury. Wright's fantasy value is minimal.
 
12/21/2012 11:58:00 AM
Description: Mavericks center Brandan Wright is questionable for Friday's game against Memphis due to a sprained right ankle.

Description: Mavericks center Brandan Wright and Elton Brand will start Saturday's game. SOURCE: Earl Sneed, Mavs.com.
Insight: Wright started the first eight games this season, scoring double figures in the first six, but has been buried on the bench since Chris Kaman returned. Brand came off the bench Wednesday in favor of Troy Murphy. Kaman is still the player to own out of the four big men; his minutes shouldn't change much despite coming off the bench.
 
11/16/2012 7:12:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Brandan Wright missed shootaround with an illness but he'll play Friday.
Insight: Wright started the season with six straight double-digit scoring efforts but he was a healthy DNP Wednesday and is sure to get uneven playing time now that Chris Kaman has been inserted into the starting lineup.
 
11/1/2012 4:16:00 PM
Description: Mavericks center Brandan Wright has averaged 14.5 ppg on 92.3 percent shooting in his first two games this season.
Insight: The Mavericks are desperate for front-court scoring with Dirk Nowitzki out and Wright has supplied it, making 12-of-13 from the field and 5-of-7 free throws. While Wright hasn't been more than a backup big man in his NBA career, he could prove to be useful in an expanded role.
 
2/24/2011 9:03:00 AM
Description: Wright went to the Nets Wednesday with teammate Dan Gadzuric as part of the team's small flurry of activity.
Insight: ... where he'll continue to be a backup, albeit behind a player in Kris Humphries with fairly little starting experience over the course of his career. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/27/2010 6:05:00 AM
Description: ESPN reports that Wright is available for a trade.
Insight: Wright has not played in the last five games even with David Lee out. The one-year UNC star has not done much in three years with the Warriors. (RapidDraft.com)
