Posts double-double in 25 minutes
Wood was dynamic in his first preseason action as a member of the Mavericks, leading all players in rebounds and adding 16 points. The big man averaged a double-double over 68 games for Houston last season after narrowly missing that milestone in his previous campaign, so there's little doubt about his ability to contribute as both a scorer and rebounder. He's expected to come off the bench for Dallas this season but should see enough minutes to again be a solid fantasy asset, though playing as a reserve on a new team does lend some risk to his outlook.

Paces Mavs with 21 points
Hardy led all players across both teams in scoring in Dallas' first preseason contest of the campaign. The 6-foot-4 guard was selected by the Mavericks in the second round of July's draft, and he shot just 34.7 percent from the field during the Las Vegas Summer League. He isn't expected to log major NBA minutes this season but could lend an occasional scoring spark off the bench.

Gets start Wednesday
Green will start with Luka Doncic out due to rest. The third-year forward averaged 4.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.7 steals in 15.5 minutes over 67 games last season. Green will look to have an increased role this season and is expected to be the team's backup small forward.
