    Mark Cuban holds an optimistic view regarding the return of NBA games, saying on Monday that "Hopefully by the middle of May, we're starting to get back to normal and the NBA is playing games."

    Cuban's optimism is sure to get hopes up among NBA fans, but there's obviously immense uncertainty and plenty of hurdles to clear before the NBA season can continue. If you want something to grab onto to keep spirits up, though, Cuban also mentioned that he "would say that the over/under would be June 1" and that he's taking the under.

    Luka Doncic scored 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting with six rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 40 minutes on Wednesday.

    Doncic shot 6-of-11 from the free throw line but was still able to lead the Mavs to a win vs. the Nuggets. Doncic is a superstar in the NBA at the young age of 21 and he is a joy to watch every time he takes the floor.

    Luka Dončić is no longer listed on the injury report with a wrist injury and will play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Dončić did appear to be bothered by his right wrist at times during Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs but it didn't stop him from having an excellent game. Expect the Slovenian All-Star to take on his usual role within the offense as the Mavs face a tough Nuggets squad. Lock and load him in lineups across all formats.

    Luka Doncic was outstanding yet again on Tuesday night, cooking up 38 points on 13-of-26 shooting, seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers.

    All this through a right wrist sprain, too. Doncic remains Dallas' primary source of just about everything, and it's been a delight to watch him grow by leaps and bounds as a fantasy asset. His percentages have both jumped notably, and that Doncic has managed to improve his FG% by almost 3.5 percentage points despite an increase of almost four shots per game is truly remarkable. We can't wait to see him in the NBA playoffs, much like his fantasy GMs can't wait to watch him in theirs.

    Luka Doncic (right wrist pain) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) are expected to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Rick Carlise mentioned that he's afraid that Doncic's wrist is something that is going to continue to bother him for the rest of the season. Owners will just have to roll with it and hope that the young superstar will continue to push through the pain and suit up down the stretch.

    Luka Doncic (right wrist sprain) is questionable to play on Tuesday.

    Doncic showed no ill effects on Sunday when he went for 36-10-8 but he's been on and off the injury report with a variety of maladies all season long. He's been able to play in 52 games so far and has managed to avoid seriously lengthy absences, so hope the trend continues. If he sits, it'll open up tons of touches for the rest of the Mavs, with Delon Wright and JJ Barea emerging as primary distributors.

    Luka Dončić impressed on Sunday against the Pacers, putting together 36 points (13-of-26 FG, 6-of-10 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists, four 3-pointers and one steal.

    The free-throw shooting remains a persistent headache but you can look past that issue when Dončić is posting exquisite counting stats across the board. He was frustrated with the officials after this game and should be plenty motivated to bounce back against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Luka Dončić (illness) will play on Friday against the Grizzlies according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

    Fire Dončić up in your lineups. He looked great on Wednesday, and hopefully, the illness does not slow him down. The Mavs are without Tim Hardaway Jr. (left shoulder contusion) for this game, and that could lead to Dončić taking a few more shots.

    Tim Hardaway Jr. (left shoulder contusion) and J.J. Barea (sore right ankle) are questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Luka Dončić (illness) is also questionable for Friday's showdown. This is a situation to monitor to see who ends up playing before making any roster adjustments. Barea is off the fantasy radar but Hardaway has standard league streaming appeal as a three-point specialist.

    Luka Dončić (illness) is officially listed as questionable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Grizzlies.

    Dončić was sent home on Thursday and was unable to practice. We should learn more regarding the young All-Star's availability Friday afternoon. Seth Curry, Delon Wright, Tim Hardaway Jr. and J.J. Barea could all see increased value if Luka misses the game. It is worth noting that Barea and Hardaway are also questionable for the contest.

    Luka Doncic (illness) did not practice on Thursday and was sent home.

    Doncic did not practice with the Mavs today and was sent home due to illness. This does not appear to be related to his left thumb injury, but keep an eye on this as it could impact his short term availability. All guards and wings in Dallas would see a boost if Doncic were to miss time. Seth Curry, Tim Hardaway Jr, Delon Wright and Kristaps Porzingis stand to gain the most in the short term.

    Luka Doncic went for X-rays on his sprained left thumb following Wednesday's game that thankfully came back negative.

    The X-rays were considered precautionary and Doncic's diagnosis hasn't changed from a sprain. He did admit that it's still causing some discomfort, adding "it’s going to hurt every game," but it has yet to seriously affect his on-court play. The phenom managed a massive 30-17-10 triple-double in last night's overtime win, and as long as he can manage the pain he'll be a lock for huge lines every night.

    Luka Doncic went off for yet another triple-double in the Mavs' 123-127 overtime victory over the Pelicans on Wednesday, wrapping up the contest with 30 points (9-20 FG, 4-11 3PT, 8-13 FT), 17 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block, but also turned it over seven times.

    Doncic continues to pile on the counting stats. While it took overtime to get him his tenth assist, he is a triple-double threat every night. He struggled with his percentages again, but it is still enough to earn second-round value on the season. As long as he is healthy, he will put together spectacular lines for fantasy owners.

    Luka Doncic scored 23 points on 8-of-20 shooting to go with five boards, nine assists, a steal and a triple.

    Doncic was better at the line tonight, but the 3-point shot wasn't falling for him tonight (1-for-8 3PT). This line is a bit empty due to the lack of defensive stats but it's a good thing if nights like this are on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of production. We expect more and we should get more the next time he plays.

    Luka Doncic (left thumb sprain) will be available for Monday's contest.

    Doncic was considered probable earlier in the day. He can be deployed with confidence after missing Sunday's game.
