NBA: Mavericks star Luka Doncic (thoracic) downgraded for Game 2


Share post:

Dallas Mavericks star guard Luka Doncic has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday night’s Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics due to a thoracic contusion.

The thoracic injury was added to the report Sunday to go along with the previously listed right knee sprain and left ankle soreness.

Doncic reportedly grabbed at his chest and ribs during Saturday’s practice.

Doncic has played through knee and ankle injuries the entire postseason but he wasn’t too limited in Game 1 as he recorded 30 points and 10 rebounds in 38 minutes of the Mavericks’ 107-89 loss.

Doncic is averaging 28.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 8.4 assists in 18 postseason games. He is shooting 34.3 percent (61 of 178) from 3-point range.

The 25-year-old Doncic finished third in MVP balloting after leading the league with a 33.9 scoring average. He also averaged 9.8 assists and 9.2 rebounds in 70 games.
