Wesley Matthews: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Matthews (Achilles) will be cautiously handled during his first season with the Mavericks, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. "He's definitely on track for a full recovery, but we’re going to be erring on the side of being conservative and cautioned," coach Rick Carlisle said. "The first year is more about making sure that he's right and getting him out there on the right terms, and from there we want him to make a full recovery and continue to get better."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

After suiting up for every game in his first three seasons in the league, Matthews missed 13 games due to hip and ankle injuries and would later require surgery on his non-shooting elbow in the offseason. In spite of the various ailments, Matthews still averaged a career-high 35 minutes per game, largely due to a dearth of talent on the Blazers' bench. Aside from a small uptick in scoring (14.8 points) and three-point production (2.4 threes per game) and a downgrade in rebounding (2.8), Matthews more or less held constant across the board. Never a player to pile up notable counting stats outside of the scoring column, Matthews figures to see his numbers take a hit after the Blazers made beefing up their reserve unit a priority in the offseason. In addition to signing Mo Williams and Dorell Wright and trading for Robin Lopez, Portland added C.J. McCollum with the 10th overall pick in this summer's draft. With Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum locked into full-time roles at point guard and small forward, Matthews' playing time seems to be the most threatened by McCollum, a talented scoring guard who will be tabbed as the Blazers' sixth man to start the season and could ultimately usurp Matthews of his starting job.

2012-13

With the retirement of Brandon Roy, Matthews filled the shooting guard slot for the Trail Blazers and excelled at just about everything, except the “shooting” part. While Matthews held steady across pretty much every category, a 41.2 field goal percentage cut his scoring average down two full points per game. Matthews was plagued by an over-reliance on the jump shot, as he attempted nearly half a shot more from beyond the arc per game and shot at a lower percentage than the year before. He also got to the line a lot less, dropping from 3.8 free throws per game to 2.6. If Matthews can curb his outside shooting and get to the rack more frequently, he could emerge as Portland’s most viable perimeter threat. The team will likely lean on Matthews early on with rookie Damian Lillard slated to handle point guard duties, which should only help his numbers. Ideally, fantasy owners would like to see Matthews add more assists to his repertoire, but he makes up for that with his dependable steals totals (1.5 per game in 2011-12) and low turnover rate (1.1 per game). Though he perhaps relied on the three-ball too much, he still nailed two threes per game, tying for 12th in the NBA. Matthews has the potential to work out the kinks in his game and become an upper-level shooting guard this season.

2011-12

Matthews has been rehabbing his “messed up” ankle all offseason, but it’s believed he should be ready when training camp starts. With Brandon Roy’s career teetering on the edge of a cliff, Matthews has come to be considered the shooting guard of both the present and the future for the Trail Blazers. Through 69 games as a starter last season, Matthews averaged 16.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.1 three-pointers, 1.4 steals, and 1.7 turnovers in 36 minutes. His minutes and scoring tapered off a little after the Blazers acquired Gerald Wallace at the trade deadline, but that loss in minutes may have also been related to the ankle injury he was fighting through for the last two months of the season. Matthews may still be undervalued in some drafts due to his season averages being slightly lowered from the 13 games he has used in limited action at the beginning of the season, but don’t let him slip in drafts. His ability to contribute better-than-average stats in three-pointers and steals make him an ideal shooting guard to own in fantasy.

2010-11

Matthews' 2009-10 campaign has to be considered a success -- from a financial perspective, if nothing else. He started the year as an undrafted free agent, signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Jazz, started 48 games, and then signed a five-year offer sheet, worth about $33 million, with the Trail Blazers this offseason. As with his real-life skillset, he offers no one standout tool in fantasy, either. Nor is he likely to play more than 30 minutes per game, making him waiver-wire fodder in most formats.
