Luka Doncic MRI reportedly shows ‘nothing alarming’

Luka Doncic, the Mavericks’ MVP candidate and their best player in the bubble, is a game-time decision for Sunday. Which is better than many expected after watching him limp off the court last game.

Doncic had an MRI Saturday on his bad ankle and the results were generally good news, but whether he can play Sunday remains up in the air.

Doncic suffered a sprained ankle late in the third quarter against the Clippers. He tried to return but had to sub himself out.

The Mavericks need him to be running the offense against a Clippers team that is starting to show its defensive potential. Dallas has other weapons and is a good team, but Doncic and his ability to run the pick-and-roll turns them into a threat to win any game.
