Luka Doncic (23, Slovenia) misses the second game in a row against the Portland Tracers.
The Dallas Mavericks (hereinafter referred to as Dallas) will play a regular league game against Portland in the NBA 2022-23 season at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, USA on the morning of the 16th (Korean time). However, Doncic was confirmed to be absent from the game that day.
Doncic is out of the game due to left ankle pain, and Tim Hardaway Jr. is also out with a left ankle sprain. Besides, Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh Green and Maxi Cleaver don’t wear uniforms either. Dallas is fortunate in its misfortune, and there’s also a chance Christian Wood will return. 메이저사이트
Doncic gave Dallas victory on the 13th at the end of a close game against the Los Angeles Lakers that went into second overtime. On this day, Doncic played 53 minutes and scored 35 points, 14 rebounds and 13 assists, tying the team with a 3-point shot just before the end of the 4th quarter and the end of the first overtime.
However, Doncic was playing with an injured left ankle at the time. Accordingly, he showed a sluggish appearance in the game against Portland on the 15th, scoring 15 points in 35 minutes.
Currently, Dallas has lost without Doncic to the Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder and has never won.
Meanwhile, Dallas was ranked 5th in the Western Conference with a record of 24-20. If Dallas loses to Portland in today’s game, it will be chased by the Los Angeles Clippers by one game.
