Willie Cauley-Stein coming off Mavericks' bench Wednesday

Dallas Mavericks forward/center Willie Cauley-Stein will play with the second unit Wednesday in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Cauley-Stein has been starting often as of late, but that's changing on Wednesday. Kristaps Porzingis is returning to the court following a seven-game absence due to a knee injury. And in his first game back, the Latvian big will also start. As such, Cauley-Stein will revert to a bench role.

Our models project Cauley-Stein for 6.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 15.9 FanDuel points across 19.2 minutes of action.
