Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks aren’t having the best time right now. The franchise’s season has effectively come to an end. Sure, mathematically, the franchise could still pull off some sort of an upset to get into the playoffs. At the end of the day, they stand at 11th with a record of 37-40 record, only one win behind the 10th seeded Thunder.

For those unaware, if the Mavericks can secure any of the spots from the 7th, to the 10th seed, they qualify for the play-in games, where they can fight to get into the postseason. And so of course, wins now are massively important.

With that in mind, will Luka Doncic be playing tonight against Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat? Or will the man decide to sit this one out?


Luka Doncic is healthy and available for the game against the Miami Heat

As per ESPN, Luka Doncic has fully recovered from his previous ankle injury, which makes sense considering he played in all of the franchise’s last 5 games. Further, the man is already in Miami, something that has sparked quite a few rumors within the NBA community.
