Doncic has missed the last three games with the left knee and ankle sprains he suffered in the last minute of the Mavericks’ Nov. 15 win over the Nuggets, when Denver’s Austin Rivers rolled up on Doncic ’s leg during a rebounding sequence. The Mavericks have lost three consecutive games in In the scrimmage, Doncic swished a couple 3-pointers and fed Marjanovic in the paint for a handful of assists. At times, however, he didn’t run full speed across the court and on defense. Less than a half-hour later, Doncic iced his knee while sitting against a wall on the court. Kidd came over to help him

Luka Doncic has not played in a week after injuring his knee and ankle last Monday. Just as he looked to be on the verge of a return, the issue appears to have gotten worse. Doncic took part in a five-on-five scrimmage on Monday and appeared to be moving closer to a return to action. However, reporters that were conducting a post-practice interview with coach Jason Kidd heard Doncic yelp in pain and retreat to the bleachers, where his left knee was iced and bandaged. A few mins after this video, Luka slammed the bleachers, shouted in pain.

Luka Doncic apparently experienced a mishap straight out of “The Three Stooges” this week.

The Dallas Mavericks star said on Tuesday that he bumped knees with a video coordinator at practice the day before, per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. Doncic, who has missed the past three games with knee and ankle issues, stressed however that the mishap was not currently affecting him.

It was previously reported that Doncic yelped in pain after an unspecified incident at practice. That it came at the hands of a collision with a video coordinator is certainly unexpected, however.

Luka Doncic sprained his ankle on Saturday, leaving him sidelined for the most difficult stretch of the Mavericks' season. Shortly after the Mavericks’ valiant comeback effort against the Miami Heat fell just short, it was reported that Doncic had avoided a major injury . In fact, he was running on the underwater treadmill in the locker room when his teammates returned. Even so, Doncic is poised to miss at least a couple weeks of play while recovering from a “moderate” sprained right ankle – an absence that comes at the worst possible time for the Mavericks.

how dare you make a JOKE about a players INJURY you piece of fucking SHIT i hope your whole family burns in a fire. Larry Bird had a weird moustache so he is discounted also Steph Curry who is objectively white helped KD win 2 rings so he is als ok discounted. Therefore Doncic is White GOAT.

While Doncic downplayed the impact of the incident, any unnecessary bumps or bruises definitely can’t help his cause. The Mavs are 0-3 in his absence, so they need him back in the lineup as soon as possible. The last thing they need is for Doncic to suffer some Kelly Olynyk-esque misfortune.
