One of Luka Donic’s goals for this season was to play the 82 games of the first phase of the NBA. The Slovenian base will not be able to achieve it, since four meetings were lost in December due to physical problems in the right ankle that have been reproduced in the last hours. The first analyzes of the doctors of the Mavericks have pointed out that the Balkan will miss “some match” without establishing exactly how long he could be off. The problem for Doncic is no longer being a week out of competition. The All Star is celebrated on the weekend of February 14 to 16 in Chicago and depending on the importance of the injury, Doncic could miss his first Star Weekend. The exmadridista base was the second most voted player for the All Star game only behind LeBron James.
Doncic will be safely low in the next morning game against the Rockets in Houston and is awaiting extensive testing to determine the extent of the sprain he is suffering. “He stepped on someone during the game and I hope it isn’t for much,” said fellow Barea. In Dallas, they are optimistic about their prompt comeback with the team that is fighting to reach the best possible position for the Western Conference playoffs.
