    That's a copy of the Mavericks depth chart. Notice they refer to the 6'11 Powell as a F-C, yet Dirk, who is a PF/C in Yahoo!, is only a Forward. This is insanity! Powell played 100 percent of his starts in the NBA at Center, same as in college. He also started the 2nd half at Center today!

    The point is not about Draymond Green, it's about Dwight Powell. He is nearly a 7-footer, he plays more than 50% of his minutes at Center, and in his two career starts, he's played Center! Check out the depth charts on Yahoo! and the Mavericks Official Depth Chart and you'll see he's both a center and a PF. He started the 2nd half of today's game at Center due to Dirk's injury and posted a 7-8-3 line with 2 steals and a block. Why was he stripped of eligibility this year after being PF/C eligible last year?

    Dwight Powell, the 6'11 backup PF is a Center on all other sites except Yahoo! Powell has started 2 games in his NBA career, both at Center. Last year, he played 50% of his minutes at center and today, he started at Center in the 2nd half after Dirk was unable to play after the 1st half. He's nearly a seven-footer, played C in college, is playing C in the NBA and I have no clue why he isn't eligible there (though DraftKings, Fanduel and CBS all have him listed as a PF/C. Look at the Mavericks Depth Chart, look at Yahoo's Depth Chart and you will notice he is listed as a backup Center, this needs to be fixed!

    Dwight Powell has started 100% of his career games at Center, but doesn't have eligility there! He belongs on this list, and he even started the 2nd half at center tonight for Dallas as Dirk was injured and couldn't play the rest of the game. Powell is 6'11, was a college center and has played more than half of his minutes at center. He should be a PF/C.

    Marquese Chriss is a backup center too, he started there in the pre-season when he started and is the center whenever the Suns go with a more athletic lineup. Marquese Chriss is a backup center!

    Please review, thanks!

    Rotowire is the site that Yahoo takes its Fantasy Player Updates from. So, why is he listed as a PF/C on their web-site (http://www.rotowire.com/basketball/player.htm?id=3855) and not on in Yahoo Fantasy?

    Here's a quote from Yahoo's July story about Powell being re-signed: "Powell a versatile, 6-foot-11 forward/center – became a successful part of the Mavericks' development structure a season ago. He was acquired by the Mavericks as part of the Rajon Rondo trade in 2014 and swiftly appeared to be the franchise's best asset acquired in the deal, showing his size, skill set and activity."

    The Mavericks web site lists him as a PF/C and every press release in which his name is mention, he's called a PF/C. See: http://www.nba.com/players/dwight/powell/203939

    From Yahoo's news story dated only a few months ago regarding the re-signing of Dwight Powell (http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources--dwight-powell-agrees-to-deal-with-mavericks-033122761.html) and I quote: "Powell a versatile, 6-foot-11 forward/center – became a successful part of the Mavericks' development structure a season ago. He was acquired by the Mavericks as part of the Rajon Rondo trade in 2014 and swiftly appeared to be the franchise's best asset acquired in the deal, showing his size, skill set and activity."

    Dwight Powell spent 311 minutes at Center last season. Fact in the14 MPG he played last season and that's the equivalent of 23 FULL GAMES EXCLUSIVELY AS CENTER FOR DWIGHT POWELL!

    The Mavericks main beat writer lists him as AN EXCLUSIVE CENTER in the announcement in which Powell was re-signed: https://twitter.com/DwainPrice/status/751662886909386753

    The Dallas Mavericks press releases, published on their official web site mention Powell as a PF-C. As does their official roster chart and his player page (http://www.nba.com/players/dwight/powell/203939). This is a 6'11 backup of both PF and C, and his only two starts have been at Center!

    Patrick Patterson and Markieff Morris between them have 211 starts in 14 seasons, and only 3 careerr starts at center, none in the past four years! John Leur has started one game there in his career, none in the last 3 seasons, spanning 33 games! None of these three are even listed as backups at the Center position on the very depth charts Yahoo created!

    Meanwhile, Powell, listed on all the other sites, like CBS and Draft Kings, as a PF/C, MADE 2/2 STARTS AT CENTER LAST SEASON! He, unlike Leur, Morris or Patterson, is listed on Yahoo's Mavericks depth chart as one of their backup centers! So, Powell has made 100 percent of his starts at center, Patterson and Morris have made a combined 1.4% of their starts at center, and 0.00% in the past four years! This makes zero sense and needs to be rectified!

    Toronto's Patrick Patterson and Washington's Markieff Morris, in their 14 years and 211 starts have COMBINED for 3 starts at Center! Neither are even listed on your own depth charts as backup centers! Meanwhile Chriss, the rookie former college center, has already started a game at the 5 during pre-season accoring to Yahoo's own box score, and played there much of the pre-season. And yet Patterson, Morris, Leur, and Lee, among others, have Center eligibilty even though none have started there in years, and many aren't even listed in Yahoo's depth charts as backups at the position. This is nuts!

    BTW, even your own site lists Dwight Powell as the Mavericks backup center, along with PF. What's more, the other sites have him listed with dual eligibility, including Draft Kings and CBS Fantasy Sports. The comical part of this is that Yahoo! lists players who either haven't played the 5 in years and/or don't project to play center at all this season including Markieff Morris (45 starts last year, 0 at center, 166 starts in his 6 years, all but two at center!), David Lee (not accoring to Yahoo depth charts), John Leur (also not a center per your depth charts, started 33 games the past 3 seasons, none at C), Bobby Portis (only a F last year, also not a center on your own depth charts and Patrick Patterson (Not on Yahoo's depth chart, 45 career starts, one of which came at center, and that was four years ago).

    To sum this up, Dwight Powell has two NBA starts in his career, and both came at the Center position. Pat Patterson and Markieff Morris, in their 14 years and 211 starts have COMBINED for 3 starts at Center (less than 1 percent)! On what world does that make sense in? If Yahoo wants to be insanely liberal with their Center eligibility assignments, then at least be consistent.

    Read this box score from ten days ago, from your own Yahoo! scores page: http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/dallas-mavericks-phoenix-suns-2016101421/

    As you can see, not only is Chriss backing up at the 5, he's even drawing starts there! This needs to be fixed, its so unfair considering the liberal eligibity with many players who won't knife the center position this season, and it's different from the other websites.

    Read the Mavericks official web-site's own press release from earlier this year when he was re-signed:http://www.mavs.com/mavericks-sign-forward-center-dwight-powell/

    The headline reads "Mavericks sign forward-center Dwight Powell"

    He played there half the pre-season, around a third of the time in his rookie year, and was a college center! What gives?

    Marquese Chriss, a 1st-rounder for the Suns, is a 6-10, he was a center for Washington in college, and he played 54 of 127 minutes at center this pre-season, and is expected to continue playing both his natural position (center) and power forward throughout his rookie year. Why doesn't he count there in Yahoo! formats?
