Latest Luka Doncic injury update: When Mavericks fans expect to see PG back in action?

The Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has missed four games, including tonight’s against the Los Angeles Lakers since his thigh injury was again sustained on March 8 against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Prior to tonight, the Mavericks had only won one game, a thrilling overtime thriller against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. Besides him, another star, Kyrie Irving, also missed three games due to ankle soreness before tonight’s victory over the Lakers.

As Kyrie returned, now the Mavericks fans are anticipating Luka’s comeback as the NBA regular season is coming to an end, and they are yet to secure a spot for the postseason.

When can Luka Doncic be back from injury?

As of Thursday, the duo started practicing, and the Mavericks don’t want to take any more risks with the 24-year-old guard. Previously in February, he missed four games due to the thigh strain, which aggravated again last week.

Playing it safe, the Mavericks put the Slovenian on the injury list for the Lakers game, though he traveled with the team to Los Angeles, and hopefully, he can be on the starting roster against the return game with Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

The 6.7-footer was having another spectacular season prior to his left thigh strain recently; he scored an average of 33 points with 8.6 rebounds and 8 assists per game in 57 appearances for the Mavericks.

After Irving’s arrival, Doncic struggled to stay on the court and pairing with the star propelled the team’s chances. There were a couple of destructive demonstrations from the duo in the meantime, indicating a lethal attacking prowess to show in the postseason.

On the other hand, the franchise is currently facing trouble in its postseason preparation; they are the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a .507 record. They still have 11 games to beat the Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Los Angeles Lakers to keep the sixth spot.

Do you think Luka Doncic will be able to get on the court and pick up where he left off? Where can the Mavericks end their regular season? Leave your thoughts in the comments section with us.
