Luka Doncic will play Tuesday vs. Thunder [UPDATE]

After being listed as questionable, Doncic was upgraded to probable and is good to go. Tim Hardaway Jr. is being listed as out.

UPDATE: Doncic will play Tuesday vs. the Thunder, per Rick Carlisle.

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.

UPDATE: Doncic is being listed as questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder.

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.

UPDATE: Doncic is available to return to the game, per the Mavericks.

Alright, nothing to see here people. Looks like Doncic is OK and we can go back to living our lives without fear.

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic had to leave for the locker room in Sunday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers after taking a hard foul by Dwight Howard.

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.
