UPDATE: Doncic will play Tuesday vs. the Thunder, per Rick Carlisle.
Luka Doncic is playing. Tim Hardway Jr. is not playing, per Rick Carlisle.— Erik Horne (@ErikHorneOK) December 31, 2019
UPDATE: Doncic has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday night’s game vs. the Thunder. Tim Hardaway Jr. is being listed as out. So with Doncic on track to play, we shouldn’t expect more of Jalen Brunson or J.J. Barea again. Barea may get some run with no THJ, but we should also see Seth Curry pick up more minutes at shooting guard.
Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) and Dennis Schroder (right ankle soreness) are questionable for tonight.— Joe Mussatto (@joe_mussatto) December 31, 2019
Luka Doncic is probable. Tim Hardaway Jr. is out.
UPDATE: Doncic is being listed as questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Mavs list Luka Doncic (left wrist sprain, back contusion) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (left hamstring strain) as questionable for Tuesday's game in Oklahoma City.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) December 30, 2019
Tim Hardaway Jr., who left Sunday’s loss due to a hamstring strain, is also questionable to play. If both Doncic and THJ are sidelined, Kristaps Porzingis becomes the focal point of the offense for the Mavs. OKC plays good defense, but we’d still be working with heavy minutes and usage for Porzingis. Seth Curry would see more work at SG off the bench and could even start for THJ. Dorian Finney-Smith saw a ton of minutes Sunday after Hardaway went down.
UPDATE: Doncic is starting the second half.

Alright, nothing to see here people. Looks like Doncic is OK and we can go back to living our lives without fear.
Doncic took a hard fall on his back after being fouled, and stayed in the game to shoot FT’s before being subbed out after DAL took an intentional foul on Howard.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) December 30, 2019
Doncic fell on his back and appeared to hurt his head during the foul and took his free throws before heading to the locker room. He had 10 points, four assists and three rebounds before exiting and the game is currently at halftime. We’ll keep you updated as to the status of Doncic when we get word.
