  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Good to go Saturday

    Doncic (personal) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game versus the Thunder.

    Doncic will return to action Saturday after missing Friday's matchup due to personal reasons. If Kyrie Irving (foot) is ruled out, Doncic could handle an even larger offensive load than normal.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Won't play Friday

    Doncic has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies due to personal reasons, NBA writer Marc Stein reports.

    Doncic will be sidelined for the first time this season, and it's not yet clear whether he'll return to action Saturday against Oklahoma City. Kyrie Irving, Jaden Hardy and Seth Curry are candidates to pick up the slack in Doncic's absence.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Goes off for 41 points

    Doncic had 41 points (15-29 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 8-9 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 win over Houston.

    Doncic was one game removed from undergoing X-rays on his left hand, so it's impressive what he was able to accomplish Tuesday at less than 100 percent. Doncic has scored at least 40 points three times this season and has reached nine assists in eight total games.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Will play Tuesday, per coach

    Coach Jason Kidd said Monday that Doncic (hand) will be available for Tuesday's matchup versus Houston, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kidd relayed that an MRI revealed Doncic suffered a left thumb sprain, but the injury shouldn't sideline him for any games. The MVP candidate finished Saturday's loss to the Clippers with 30 points, but he said after the contest he had an X-ray done at halftime. Doncic isn't new to playing through injuries, as he battled a calf issue earlier in the campaign, so his production shouldn't be negatively impacted by the thumb issue.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Getting hand checked out

    Doncic said after Saturday's 107-88 loss to the Clippers that he received an X-ray on his left hand at halftime, and though he was able to return to the game, he'll undergo further examination in Dallas, Grant Afseth of reports.

    A source told Ohm Youngmisuk of that Doncic's hand is "good" after it banged into the knee of the Clippers' James Harden in the opening minute of Saturday's game. For his part, Doncic said he doesn't think he's suffered a fracture, but he was wearing a wrap on the hand after the game and will get a more thorough examination once the Mavericks return to Dallas. While playing through the thumb issue, Doncic finished with 30 points (12-27 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 38 minutes. The Mavericks return to action Tuesday versus the Rockets.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Nears triple-double in victory

    Doncic totaled 30 points (10-26 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 12 rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 104-101 win over the Lakers.

    Doncic shot poorly from three-point range, but that was about his only flaw in an otherwise excellent performance. The star point guard didn't commit any turnovers in the contest -- just the second time this season he has finished with a zero in that category -- and notched double-digit rebounds for the seventh time on the campaign. Doncic has actually been slightly more productive on the boards than as a distributor this season, though his season per-game averages of 30.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.1 assists leave little to be desired. Doncic is also averaging 4.0 triples per contest, second-most in the league.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Near triple-double not enough

    Doncic finished Sunday's 129-113 loss to the Kings with 25 points (7-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 8-10 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists and three steals across 32 minutes.

    Doncic finished just three assists away from recording a triple-double, a feat he hasn't accomplished since Oct. 30, but that shouldn't take away the fact that he's been elite across all formats. Aside from being ever-present for the Mavericks in terms of availability, he's averaging a robust 28.3 points, 7.6 assists, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in November. His numbers were expected to have a slight regression if Kyrie Irving managed to stay healthy throughout the season, but Doncic remains one of the most productive players in The Association through the first four weeks of the campaign.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Good to go Sunday

    Doncic (knee) will play Sunday against the Kings, Tim MacMahon of reports.

    Doncic totaled 35 points (15-26 FG), nine rebounds and nine assists in 35 minutes during Saturday's loss to Milwaukee and was initially listed as questionable for the second half of Dallas' back-to-back set due to right knee soreness. The Mavericks may be cautious with the MVP candidate, but it appears fantasy managers can expect a full workload from Doncic against Sacramento.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Questionable Sunday

    Doncic (knee) is questionable to play against Sacramento on Sunday.

    Doncic is dealing with right knee soreness. He boomed for 35 points in 35 minutes during Saturday's loss to Milwaukee, but Dallas is in the middle of a back-to-back set, which adds risk to Doncic's availability.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Flirts with triple-double Saturday

    Doncic closed with 35 points (15-26 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-4 FT), nine rebounds and nine assists in 35 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

    Doncic continues to put up gaudy numbers, falling just one rebound and one assist short of a triple-double. While he came up empty on the defensive end and struggled from the free-throw line, managers have to be thrilled with the numbers. The Mavericks will play again in less than 24 hours when they host the Kings in Dallas. Doncic is continuing to deal with some minor ailments, meaning managers will want to keep one eye on the injury report in case the medical staff opts to give him some additional rest.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Leads Dallas with double-double

    Doncic ended Wednesday's 130-117 win over the Wizards with 26 points (7-18 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 8-12 FT), seven rebounds and 10 assists in 32 minutes.

    The 24-year-old superstar fell a few boards shy of his third triple-double of the season while leading the Mavericks in scoring once again. Doncic is having a strong start to the season, and through 12 games, he's on pace to set new career highs in three-pointers (4.2 per game) and all three shooting percentages (50.2/42.0/76.1) while topping 30 points per game for the second straight campaign. With Kyrie Irving nursing a sore foot, Doncic's usage should remain elevated in the short term, even by his lofty standards.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Plays just 26 minutes in blowout

    Doncic posted 16 points (5-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), two rebounds and two assists over 26 minutes during Tuesday's 131-110 loss to the Pelicans.

    The Mavericks fell behind early and couldn't claw their way back, so Doncic sat the entire fourth quarter and ended with a season-low 26 minutes. This was Doncic's first real dud of the season, as he came into the contest averaging 32.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 8.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 35.7 minutes per game over his first 10 appearances.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Shines once again

    Doncic contributed 30 points (11-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 136-124 victory over the Pelicans.

    Doncic ended just one assist from recording a double-double, and while he has gone four contests without posting one, it's hard to find anything negative in the kind of season the star guard has had so far. Doncic is averaging 32.6 points, 8.5 assists and 8.4 rebounds through 10 games, putting up four double-doubles and two triple-doubles in that stretch.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Excellent outing against LAC

    Doncic finished Friday's 144-126 victory over the Clippers with 44 points (17-21 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one steal over 32 minutes.

    Doncic delivered one of his best games of the season in this game, and that says something given he opened the campaign with a triple-double. Doncic looks like a man on a mission in 2023-24 and has already eclipsed the 30-point barrier in six of his nine games.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Scoring barrage continues

    Doncic registered 31 points (11-26 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 7-10 FT), seven rebounds, eight assists, one block and four steals in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 127-116 loss to Toronto.

    Doncic is averaging 31.5 points this season, which is second behind only Joel Embiid (31.7). The superstar forward has scored at least 18 points in every game. Doncic also made a defensive impact in Wednesday's loss, recording a season-high four steals.

  • Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Scores game-high 29

    Doncic finished Monday's 117-102 win over Orlando with 29 points (9-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six assists, three rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes.

    Doncic was efficient while leading Dallas to a 28-point advantage at one point in the second half. Orlando primarily put Jalen Suggs and rookie Anthony Black on Doncic defensively, and their valiant effort was not enough to slow him down. Doncic has been rolling to open the campaign with averages of 31.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 4.4 three-pointers, 1.0 steals and 0.6 blocks, and his 78.6 percent mark from the free-throw line also represents a career-best rate.
