The Mavericks can’t afford to lose Doncic for an extended period of time.
Luka Doncic is one of the best young players in the entire NBA and once LeBron James retires, he is looking to completely take over. The Dallas Mavericks have been off to a great start thanks to Doncic and with each year, he continues to improve. He is so valuable to his team that if he were to get injured, they would be in a heck of a lot of trouble.
Well, last night, the Mavericks got a huge scare as he went down with injuries to his left ankle and knee. Doncic ended up leaving the game against the Nuggets and while the Mavs won, it felt like they were gearing for a humongous L.

Despite this, Tim MacMahon of ESPN is now reporting that Doncic will have to miss a few games, however, it isn’t as bad as originally thought.
