Luka Doncic was sublime in Friday's 120-112 win over the Blazers, dropping 35 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, a steal and eight 3-pointers.
Doncic had an answer for everything that the Blazers threw at him and even responded to some signature stretches out of Damian Lillard that put the game back in the balance. He did go 5-of-8 at the free throw line and has shot just .681 on his freebies over the last two weeks but we're hoping that will correct given the much larger sample of great shooting from earlier in the year. It's a joy to watch him play.

Luka Doncic had a triple-double before the end of the third quarter on Wednesday, ending with 25 points, 15 rebounds and 17 assists.
Doncic had an incredible line tonight. So strong, that it was good enough to hide some blemishes that we'll mention just because you need the full story. Despite the popcorn numbers he put up, Doncic was 0-for-5 from deep and turned the ball over six times. Still, Doncic is a top-10 player and clearly one of the league's most promising young talents.

Luka Doncic had a tough night from the line on Tuesday, shooting just 2-for-8 on his freebies, though he did still finish with 20 points (8-for-19 FGs), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes as the Mavs blew out the Warriors.
Doncic has had a few sub-par games recently, mainly related to his shooting percentages. But that's also translating to drops in points and threes, so it's something that hopefully turns around quickly. There's no action to take here, as he had back-to-back triple-doubles with at least 38 points less than two weeks ago.

Luka Doncic finished with 19 points, 12 assists, eight rebounds and one 3-poitner on 4-of-15 shooting in 32 minutes on Sunday in a won over the 76ers.
Doncic is outside of the top-180 in his last three games and he went cold yet again tonight. He would've had a much worse game if he didn't convert on 10 out of his 12 free throw attempts. He's averaging five turnovers over the last week and he managed to rack up five more in tonight's game. He's not the perfect player but he's almost a lock to finish inside the top-15 on the year and a couple of bad games should be overlooked.

Luka Doncic finished Friday's 114-129 loss to the Lakers with 25 points (8-for-19 shooting), 10 rebounds, seven assists and a triple across 32 minutes.
Despite the excellent fantasy line, Doncic wasn't able to quite get it going like normal against the stout Lakers defense. His free throw struggles (8-for-13) even led to him tearing his jersey in the first half. If he's that mad over a line like this that tells us all we need to know about Doncic as a fantasy asset.

Luka Doncic was one rebound shy of a triple-double in Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Nuggets, ending with 27 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists but also collecting six turnovers.
Doncic continues to shine as one of the NBA's best young talents. And as strong as this performance was, there will be even better ones for Doncic this season. He looks like a safe bet to be a top-10 player at the end of the season.

Luka Doncic notched his 11th triple-double of the season with 38 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to go with one block and five triples.
Doncic's superstar year continues as he continues to crush box scores with overwhelming numbers. He broke Jason Kidd's franchise record for triple-doubles last game and it looks like he's in line for plenty more. The increased efficiency at the line and from the field are huge as we always knew he could deliver the popcorn numbers. Enjoy the ride.

Luka is simply a fantasy beast and tonight, the beast dine on the Brooklyn Nets. He will fatten up your team's weekly fantasy wins as the Mavs continue to unrelentingly feed the Slovenian Beast.

Luka Dončić is available to play in Thursday's game against the Nets despite dealing with a bruised right thigh.
Dončić should see even more usage with Kristaps Porziņģis and Tim Hardaway Jr. both out. Lock him into lineups and expect something amazing from the Slovenian phenom.

Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) is being listed as probable for Thursday's matchup with the Nets.
Doncic had a massive game on Tuesday against the Thunder with Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr., both sitting, and he will look to build on that against the Nets. The second-year phenom is going to be a popular DFS pick tonight.

Luka Doncic started hot but cooled off in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, posting 35 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Doncic scored 17 of those points in the first quarter but ended up shooting 12-for-29 from the field, 3-of-16 from deep and 8-of-12 from the line. Those are the efficiency concerns that held Doncic back last season but it's been a different story so far in his sophomore campaign, so treat this as a blip on the radar.

Luka Doncic (left wrist sprain, back contusion) will start vs. the Thunder on Monday.
Doncic wasn't quite himself in the Mavs' last game after a fall, but he's starting, so those that roster him are too. Hopefully he's near 100 percent health despite being a little banged up recently.

Luka Doncic (left wrist sprain/back contusion) is being listed as probable to play in Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
Doncic took a hard fall during Sunday's game and subsequently didn't look quite right afterward. A crisis seems to be averted, and Doncic should be ready to roll on New Year's Eve. Feel free to get the 20-year-old phenom back into all lineups.

Luka Doncic is questionable for Tuesday's game with a left wrist sprain and back contusion.
Doncic fell hard during Sunday's game and returned but didn't look quite like himself. Jalen Brunson would be in line for more minutes if he misses time. Doncic is having a remarkable season despite the recent injury woes.
