Is Luka Doncic playing tonight? Latest injury update for Mavericks at Kings on Feb 11

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic looks set to return after missing four straight games with a heel injury sustained in a nasty fall on February 2. Luke looks good during Friday’s shootaround, but he still felt a bit sore after fighting on Thursday. Dallas decided to rest his star for one more day, but he is expected to play in Sacramento on February 11th.

The Mavericks had a wire-to-wire win over the Kings behind a 25-point double-double from Kyrie Irving on Friday night, and the two sides meet again on Saturday. Doncic will give the Mavericks a massive boost as they can level Sacramento in standings and secure the tiebreaker by finishing a street sweep.

Here’s the latest on Luke’s recent heel injury and what fans of the number 77 can expect Saturday night against the Kings in Sacramento.

Doncic was ruled questionable for Friday’s game before being ruled out in the afternoon. He seems ready, but the team will give him final clearance just before the tip. Fans should expect the 23-year-old superstar to return on Saturday night, but be sure to check back before the game for a final update on his status.

Both teams are in their second night of consecutive sets, so no official injury reports have been released. Maxi Kleber (hamstring) and Davis Bertans (calf) are both out through the All-Star break. On the second night of a back-to-back game, will the Mavs rest other players? Find out about the latest news.

The Kings went into Friday’s game perfectly healthy, so they should be at or near full strength on the second night of a back-to-back game.

Doncic missed his tenth game of the season on Friday night and that heel injury has cost him four in a row. The 23-year-old superstar has struggled primarily with ankle injuries throughout his NBA career and fans shouldn’t worry about this heel issue going forward.

Luka is scheduled to play Saturday night in Sacramento and should be ready for the last three games before the All-Star break. Expect number 77 to be in full swing in his first game with new teammate Kyrie Irving.

The Mavs have just two games before the All-Star break after tonight. Dallas has won three in a row and they’re looking to finish strong as Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving will travel to Salt Lake City to start in the All-Star Game on February 19th.

The schedule is friendlier after the break, and here’s a look at the Mavericks’ next five games after Saturday’s showdown in Sacramento.
