With Dallas’ schedule more compressed, Doncic will miss more games now.
Mike Peasley of ESPN Dallas:
BREAKING: Rick Carlisle on his radio show on @1033fmESPN says Luka Doncic has been ruled out for the next 6 games
— Mike Peasley (@PeasESPN) January 31, 2020
Dallas’ upcoming schedule:
- at Rockets tonight
- vs. Hawks on Saturday
- at Pacers on Monday
- vs. Grizzlies on Wednesday
- at Wizards on Friday Feb. 7
- at Hornets on Saturday Feb. 8
The Mavericks have just two additional games before All-Star break:
- vs. Jazz on Monday Feb. 10
- vs. Kings on Wednesday Feb. 12
I wouldn’t be shocked if Doncic sits those two and gets an extended rest. Or he could play to get his feet under him then before Rising Stars and the All-Star Game.
Either way, Dallas will miss its best player for a bit.
