Luka Doncic put up 18 points with 12 rebounds and nine assists on 5-of-17 shooting in 33 minutes in a loss to the Heat on Wednesday.
Doncic led the Mavs in minutes and shot attempts and continues to put up big lines. However, his lack of defensive stats and efficiency keeps him from being anything above a top-100 option in 9-cat leagues. He will continue to be a highlight reel and dominate his opponents, but he will need to improve in the efficiency and defensive categories to become a fantasy force.

Luka Doncic did his best to carry the Mavs on Monday with his 21 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two triples but fell short as they got steamrolled by the Rockets.
It was not one of Doncic's better games as he struggled with his shot, going 7-of-17 from the field and 5-of-9 from the line. But it's too late to be turned off, everyone's already overly enamored with this legend-in-the-making. He gets a pass for this one considering he was up against veterans James Harden and Chris Paul.

Luka Doncic led the charge in Sunday's 102-101 comeback win over the Blazers, scoring 28 points (9-of-20 FG, 6-of-8 FT) to go with nine rebounds, six assists, a block and four 3-pointers.
Doncic underwent X-rays on his left hand after feeling some soreness after Friday's game but clearly wasn't affected. The rookie phenom is good to go moving forward as he'll look to improve upon his current top-50/80 rankings in 8/9-cat formats.

Luka Doncic (hand) will start in Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.
This was expected after his X-rays came back negative and he wasn't listed on the injury report. The All-Star Break is right around the corner so he'll get some rest soon but until then feel free to keep him in your lineups.

Luka Doncic is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game versus the Blazers after getting precautionary X-Rays on his left hand.
He is banged up right now with a sore left hand a a right thigh contusion but it seems he will be good to go on Sunday. One would want to check back for further confirmation. His defensive stats and free-throw percentage has been down in recent weeks but he has remained consistent in other categories. No rookie wall yet for the 19-year old phenom but the All-Star break could not have come at a better time to rest his minor ailments.

Luka Doncic went 7-for-14 from the field and 3-for-7 from the line in Friday's 107-122 loss to the Bucks to end the night with 20 points, three rebounds, two assists and three 3s.
Doncic's 19-year-old frame is a bit banged up right now with him getting precautionary X-rays on a sore left hand and being originally listed as questionable for tonight's game with a right thigh contusion. Hopefully, a long rest over the All-Star Break will help the runaway ROY this season heal up.

Luka Doncic is getting precautionary X-rays on his sore left hand after Friday's loss to the Bucks.
We'll just cross our fingers and hope there's nothing too serious with the presumptive rookie of the year. We'll have an update when it's available.

Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) will play on Friday vs. the Bucks.
With Doncic as the last man standing in Dallas, he's looking to put up some serious numbers to close out the season, though his efficiency will probably less than ideal.

Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks.
Doncic has a career-high 35 and a triple-double in his last two games, so if he's been playing through the injury it certainly doesn't look like it. If he can't suit up tomorrow it should lead to extra minutes for Dorian Finney-Smith, among others.

Luka Doncic recorded his third career triple-double in Wednesday's 99-93 win over the Hornets with 19 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists, two triples and one steal.
There's very little more than can be said to extoll Doncic's amazing impact both in real-life and fantasy. He's lived up to the hype, crushed it and delivered beyond expectations. Doncic is hands-down the single most valuable player in keeper and dynasty leagues right now. You know, doing all this at 19 and all.

Luka Doncic destroyed the Cavs on Saturday with 35 points (career-high) on 13-of-25 shooting, adding 11 rebounds, six dimes, four triples and a steal.
This was a cakewalk for the Slovenian phenom, who recorded 28 of his 35 points in the first half. The Mavs had this in the bag early and the rookie, who has been dealing with some ankle soreness recently, was able to cruise through for the finish. He's the man now in Dallas and is already a Legend-in-the-making this early in his career.

The Mavericks are starting Luka Doncic, Jalen Brunson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Harrison Barnes and Maxi Kleber on Saturday against the Cavs.
Luka is returning after missing one-game in this one and should have his way against the Cavs. Brunson, DFS, and Barnes will get heavy run while Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee are still getting integrated into the team. This is also an excellent spot for Kleber who could shine with DeAndre Jordan out of the picture.

Luka Doncic (left ankle soreness) is questionable to face the Cavs on Saturday.
Doncic missed Thursday's game with the ankle soreness so hopefully he'll be able to suit up soon. If he can't go, Jalen Brunson is an intriguing option as a DFS punt play for the undermanned Mavs.

Luka Doncic (left ankle soreness) will miss Thursday's game against the Pistons.
Doncic was able to play through the injury last night but the Mavs will pump the brakes on him here. Dallas is going to be extremely shorthanded between Doncic's absence and the players locked up by the impending trade with the Knicks, so pretty much all of their active players are on the board as streams or DFS plays tonight.

Luka Doncic could be the Mavs' starting point guard going forward after the trade of Dennis Smith Jr.
Doncic is a terror with the ball in his hands, so this is the expected move now that the Mavs don't have a pure point guard that demands excessive playmaking opportunities. It'll open up more time at power forward and on the wings, with players like Maxi Kleber and Dorian Finney-Smith likely to benefit the most among current Mavs. Courtney Lee might factor in, as could Jalen Brunson, but Kleber is the add of choice if we're looking to squeeze value out of the ripple effects here. Doncic might have some issues with turnovers after he's toned that stuff down lately but he's going to have every opportunity to post some huge popcorn numbers. This is big news for his fantasy prospects going forward, and dynasty owners are over the moon right now. It's also possible that Doncic stays at "power forward" but either way he's the team's primary playmaker for the rest of the season.
