Matthews registered 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five rebounds and four assists across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 95-89 victory over the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

The nine-year veteran is enjoying his best month of the campaign, as factoring in Tuesday's production, he's averaging 15.2 points on 48.6 percent shooting through six December contests. Matthews has drained multiple threes in eight of his last nine contests as well and has upped his overall usage, as his 12.3 shot attempts per game thus far this month represents a notable uptick from the 10.8 figure he's sporting for the season.

Matthews recorded 29 points (11-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 37 minutes during Friday's 109-102 loss to the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews was ultra-efficient Friday, finishing with 29 points on just 15 field-goal attempts. He is a 39 percent shooter on the season, so this is not something that owners should become accustomed to. He had seen his assist numbers go up to begin the season, but this has regressed over the past three weeks. He is about as inconsistent as they come, but should continue to see solid minutes for the foreseeable future.

Matthews (calf) will play in Monday's matchup with the Spurs, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews has been dealing with tightness in his right calf, but after going through his regular routine during pregame warmups without issue, he's now been given the green light to take the court. Look for Matthews to take on his usual role as the team's starting shooting guard and barring any in-game setbacks, he shouldn't be on any restrictions.

Matthews is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Spurs due to right calf tightness, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear at this point just how much jeopardy Matthews' status may be in, but more information should be available after shootaround. The 31-year-old has played at least 34 minutes in each of the last five games, including 35 minutes in Saturday's win over Oklahoma City.

Matthews tallied 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-8 3Pt), eight assists, two rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes in Saturday's 111-79 victory over the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews was able to find his shot on Saturday, leading the Mavericks to an easy victory. As is the case every season, he has been inconsistent from the field, shooting at only 35 percent for the season. On nights like this, he demonstrates his upside, but these performances are few and far between. He remains more of a streaming option if you are in need of three-pointers.

Matthews is a game-time call for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what, exactly, is afflicting Matthews but he's apparently battling a foot issue, and a decision on his status won't come until closer to tip. In the event he's held out, expect Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea to see increased minutes.

Matthews registered eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists across 34 minutes in Monday's 104-89 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Like most of his teammates on the first unit, Matthews couldn't get much going on the offensive end against a tough Utah defense. The nine-year veteran saw his streak of five consecutive double-digit scoring efforts and four straight games with better than 50.0 percent shooting come to an end. However, continued his blistering run from three-point range, one that's seen him drain 63.2 percent of his 19 shots from behind the arc over the latter span.

Matthews scored 19 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and three steals over 33 minutes in a 112-110 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Matthews continued his hot streak from beyond the arc, hitting at least 50.0 percent of his attempts for the third straight game. Since struggling with his shot in the first three games, the shooting guard is shooting 53.4 percent from the floor in the last four games, averaging 18.0 points. Matthews will look to continue his current upswing in production against Utah on Monday.

Matthews tallied 16 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 41 minutes in Wednesdays 103-94 win over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Although Yogi Ferrell has usurped minutes and a couple of starts from Matthews already, it appears that the Mavs are content with Ferrell coming off the bench, allowing Matthews to take residence as the starting point guard for the time being. While Dennis Smith will be the sparkplug of the backcourt, Matthews will look to complement the talented rookie in the early going. This backcourt duo immediately raises the Mavs' prospects on what was originally looking to be a dismal season.They'll play the Grizzlies again tomorrow, this time in Memphis.
