Doncic to miss Utah Jazz game through injury

The Slovenian guard has problems with his right ankle and will not be in the duel this Monday. Porzingis will also not play on the left knee.


Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis will not play the Utah Jazz this Monday (9:00 pm). It is the first game of the only back to back that the Dallas Mavericks will play in the Orlando bubble and Rick Carlisle has decided to take care of his two stars. Both have minor injuries of no importance: the Slovenian has problems with his right ankle that has already been twisted twice this season, while the Latvian has a discomfort in his left knee that made him go under the knife in February 2018 after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament when he was still a player for the New York Knicks, according to the NBA injury report.

Dallas does not want to be scared with the playoffs on the horizon, although this way they may lose a unique chance of reaching sixth place, in possession of Utah Jazz, their rival tonight: the Texans are two games away with only three to be played without count this Monday. Those in Salt Lake City, who will not have Donovan Mitchell, have two left.

Doncic in the bubble

The Mavs have not had a good season restart with a record of just two wins in five games. On the contrary, Doncic has shone. The Real Madrid youth squad, out of the fight for the MVP, has shown his great abilities with 33.4 points, 11.6 rebounds and 11.6 assists on average. Their games against the Sacramento Kings and the Milwaukee Bucks (the Mavs' only two wins) were fantasy.

In front of the California franchise he unleashed up to 34 goals, 20 sacks (his career top) and 12 basket passes; and against Giannis Antetokounmpo's team he embroidered it with 36 points, 14 rebounds and 19 assists, his most in the NBA. "He's one of the most talented guys I've ever played with," the Greek forward said of Doncic after the Bucks-Mavs.
