    Luka Dončić joined LeBron James, Anthony Davis, James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo on the 2019-20 All-NBA First Team.

    Luka became the youngest player to be selected to the First Team since Tim Duncan, an impressive feat by the Slovenian phenom. The Greek Freak gets his second nod at First Team while Harden achieved this for the sixth time. The list is rounded out by two Lakers, LeBron and Davis, who earned their 13th and fourth selections to the First-Team respectively. The Lakers' forwards also become the first duo on the same team to be on the First-Team since Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire in 2006-07.

    Luka Doncic was fined $15,000 for throwing the ball at the legs of a referee during Sunday's Game 6 loss to the Clippers.

    Even though the Mavs have been eliminated, it was an eventful game for Doncic. Earlier in the contest, he drew a flagrant foul that resulted in the ejection of Marcus Morris. Doncic ended the day with 38 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists.

    Marcus Morris was handed a $35,000 fine for "recklessly striking" Luka Doncic during Game 6 of the Clippers' series with the Mavericks on Sunday.

    Morris' actions resulted in a flagrant 2 and ejection from the game. Morris has been a solid complementary player for the Clippers, but the referees will be watching him closely going forward.

    Luka Doncic was terrific yet again in Sunday's 97-111 loss to the Clippers, scoring 38 points to go with nine rebounds, nine assists, a steal, four triples and a 15-of-28 mark from the field.

    Doncic had the team on his back pretty much all series and tried his damnedest to erase a big deficit today, turning a blowout into an interesting game in the early stages of the fourth quarter. That he was able to do all of this on a sprained ankle, without Kristaps Porzingis, remains remarkable, and the best is still yet to come from the young phenom. If there was one sore spot it was Doncic's work at the line as he went just 4-of-8 today and 42-for-64 in the series. He's going to be a high-volume FT player for years to come and it might be the thing that keeps him out of truly elite fantasy value. Doncic hit .758 at the stripe this past season after going .713 as a rookie, and any more wild swings in efficiency are going to have a big impact on his fantasy ranking. You're splitting hairs when it comes to the top-20 or so, so even mediocre percentages on Doncic's volume have a chance to sink ROI if the price gets too steep.

    The Mavs will have their full complement of players available on Sunday, with Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain), Tim Hardaway Jr. (neck strain), Dorian Finney-Smith (hip soreness/strain) and Trey Burke (left ankle sprain) all ready for Game 6 against the Clippers.

    It was a bit surprising to see this quartet listed as questionable yesterday since they were all previously probable or not on the injury report at all before the league stopped for a couple days, but you can bet they'll be going full tilt in a win-or-go-home situation today.

    Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain) remains listed as questionable ahead of Game 6 against the Clippers on Sunday.

    There is no update on Doncic but the three extra days should have helped. With the Mavs in a do-or-die situation, he will surely try his best to get cleared. With Tim Hardaway Jr., Trey Burke and Dorian Finney-Smith also listed as questionable, it is too early to guess as to what the Mavs lineup may look like on Sunday if Doncic does not play. On a side note, he is averaging a casual 29.6 points, 10.0 rebounds and 8.6 assists through the first five games of the series.

    Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Game 6 on Thursday.

    Doncic admitted that the injury was exacerbated by the fact that Marcus Morris Sr. landed on the ankle during Game 5. While Doncic was limping after the game, it would not be surprising to see him back in the lineup on Thursday.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) is considered questionable for Game 6 on Thursday.

    Porzingis has missed two straight games in the series. The Mavericks would love to take some pressure off of Luka Doncic in a potential elimination game, but his status is obviously still up in the air. Boban Marjanovic played 17 unremarkable minutes during Game 5, which was a blowout victory for the Clippers.

    Luka Doncic struggled on Tuesday, finishing with just 22 points, eight rebounds and four assists on 6-of-17 shooting in 31 minutes as the Clippers smoked the Mavs in Game 5.

    Doncic just didn't seem to have it tonight and the Clippers were very clearly motivated by all of the trash talk that had been directed at them following a Game 4 loss. He was just 1-of-6 from beyond the arc and managed to commit five turnovers in the process. Tonight was undoubtedly one of his worst bubble performances and he will need to bounce back as the Mavs try to avoid elimination in Game 6 on Thursday.

    Luka Dončić (left ankle sprain) will suit up for the Mavs in Game 5 vs. the Clippers on Tuesday, as expected.

    Luka appeared to roll his ankle severely on Friday in Game 3, but was able to play less than 48 hours later and put on an epic performance. With that in mind, there was never really any question that he'd play on Tuesday in Game 5, especially after news broke that the Mavs would be without Kristaps Porzingis (right knee) for a second consecutive game. Dončić logged almost 46 minutes in the overtime contest on Sunday so expect him to be their primary source of offense once again.

    Luke Doncic (left ankle sprain) is probable to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    A sprained ankle can't stop the Luka magic. Doncic seemingly did the impossible in Game 4 without Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and all bets are now off in this series. Porzingis has been listed questionable so it is likely Doncic will need another virtuoso performance for the Mavs to take the lead in Game 5.

    Luka Doncic was incredible in Sunday's Game 4 overtime win over the Clippers, playing through a sprained left ankle to post 43 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers on 18-of-31 from the field, including the game-winning step-back three at the buzzer.

    Not bad for a guy who was a game-time decision. This is a simply legendary performance from Doncic, who led the Mavs back from a 21-point deficit in the first half and pulled off a huge comeback with Kristaps Porzingis (knee soreness) out of action. The Clippers have a handful of versatile defenders but Doncic got pretty much whatever he wanted all day long aside from a few late-fourth possessions against Kawhi Leonard. Luka is already a true superstar and the Mavs have stolen momentum in a series that's now knotted at two. With today's game he became the ninth player ever with consecutive playoff triple-doubles and joined Magic Johnson and LeBron James as the only players to record multiple postseason triple-doubles at 21 or younger. Doncic put the exclamation point on the best game in the bubble so far.

    Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain) is going to play in Sunday's Game 4 against the Clippers.

    Doncic went through pregame warmups and is apparently healthy enough to go, though he is definitely not at 100%. It looked like a nasty injury when he first sustained it in Game 3 but he'll gut it out with the Mavs looking to even up their series with the Clippers.

    Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain) is headed for a game-time decision on Sunday and is yet to undergo an MRI, according to Rick Carlisle.

    Luka suffered the ankle injury during Friday's Game 3 loss and was ultimately unable to return. An issue with the MRI machine has left the team without an official timetable and he appears as though he will leave it until game-time to make a final decision. If Doncic cannot go on Sunday, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Seth Curry will both shoulder much of the offensive responsibility.

    Luka Doncic (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable in the Mavs media notes for Sunday's Game 4.

    The Mavs play in the afternoon, which makes it even harder for Doncic to get cleared, but early reports are that his sprain is considered to be mild. We'll see if Dallas has an update on Luka's condition in the next official injury report.
