  • Luka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic, Trae Young and Deandre Ayton have been selected as the finalists for this year’s NBA Rookie of the Year.

    Doncic was the presumptive winner for most of the season and while Young made huge strides at the end of the year, this award is still Doncic’s to lose.

    Luka Doncic finishes the season earning rookie of the month for each month of the campaign including March/April.

    Luka's dominance this season has been apparent and we should not hesitate to draft him in the top 50 in 8-cat leagues while he may not fair as well in 9-cat leagues until he learns how to take better care of the basketball. He was around top-100 value in 9-cat but he may increase that value with his rookie year behind him.

    Luka Doncic did not play in Wednesday's season finale, but finished the year with top 50-100 value in 8- and 9-cat standard leagues, respectively.

    Doncic took on more usage than you'd probably want from a rookie in both fantasy and reality, as his efficiencies slid while the counting stats cranked up. He logged 72 games and has the inside track on the Rookie of the Year award, though Trae Young gave him a late run with his team also giving him full run of the yard.

    Luka Doncic (thigh) will not play on Wednesday against the Spurs.

    Doncic has had an incredible season but it ended on Tuesday night as he has been ruled out of tonight's meaningless game for the Mavs. Look for Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke to pick up additional minutes in his absence. If Courtney Lee ends up being available, he may also get some extra run in Luka's absence. All three could be viable streaming candidates.

    Luka Doncic (thigh) is questionable going into Wednesday's season finale against the Spurs.

    Doncic played last night and might end up resting if he has any discomfort in pregame warmups. If he does end up sitting, look for Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke to pick up the slack. Neither of those players are the fantasy asset that Doncic has shown as he will most likely be the ROY.

    Luka Doncic (thigh) will start on Tuesday against the Suns.

    The Mavs are going all in for Dirk Day. Expect Doncic to get some run, if even at below 100 percent, to top off a remarkable rookie campaign. Get Doncic in those lineups.

    Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Doncic will be out there for what could be Dirk Nowitzki's final home game, and while he might not be 100 percent it's not surprising that he'll at least make an appearance for such a momentous game. There's no telling how much he'll actually play but between the emotional circumstances of the game and the great matchup, you've got to have him in all lineups if he's active.

    Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Coach Rick Carlisle said that Doncic was not shut down for the season, but with how the Mavs want to tank, he very well might be.

    Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said that Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) has not been shut down for the season and will play again this season.

    With only a handful of games remaining and Doncic now in a battle for Rookie of the Year with a surging Trae Young, we wouldn't be surprised if Doncic did actually play another few games.

    The Mavs have downgraded Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) to out vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

    The Mavs aren't going to risk the health of their young superstar tonight. With Jalen Brunson (load management) also out, Trey Burke, Ryan Broekhoff and Devin Harris are in line for expanded roles in a good streaming matchup.

    Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) is questionable to play in Friday's tilt against the Grizzlies.

    This may be the same injury that kept him out of Monday's game before he returned on Wednesday. It is probably not a serious injury but with the Mavs in on the Zion sweepstakes, they have no reason to rush their potential ROY back too soon. Look for Trey Burke, Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris to pick up the slack if Doncic sits out with the first two having the greatest chance of value.

    Luka Doncic returned from a thigh contusion injury and put up 27 points with 12 rebounds and six assists on 11-of-21 shooting in a loss to the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Doncic has had a fantastic rookie season, but his fantasy skill set is so unbalanced that it is seemingly tough to own him and bring home a trophy. He brings great value in points, 3-pointers, rebounds and assists. However, he was sinking teams in the efficiency, defense, and turnover categories. Great to see Doncic return to the court.

    Rick Carlisle said that Luka Doncic will return to the starting lineup on Wednesday as the Mavs face the Wolves.

    It’s great to see Luka back from a thigh contusion that caused him to miss a couple games. The Mavs have nothing to play for but Doncic is till trying to secure the Rookie of the Year trophy so expect another solid performance by the Slovenian star.

    Luka Doncic (right thigh contusion) and Dorian Finney-Smith (mouth laceration) are both listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

    Doncic has missed the last two games with his thigh injury, as the Mavs have every incentive to tank and keep their top-5 lottery protected pick from the Hawks. DFS is another story, as he was hit in the mouth Monday and has a better chance at giving it a go, depending on how badly the Mavs want to lose Wednesday.
