Mavs’ Luka Doncic delivers preseason spectacle with 25 points amid injury concerns

Luka Doncic is probably one of the best players in the league right now. He is known for his high work ethic and efficiency on the court but unfortunately, he has been suffering from a thigh injury for some time.

The Wolves faced the Mavs in the NBA preseason game and Doncic delivered an exceptional performance. Although his coach, Jason Kidd, emphasized that he has been facing issues on the court because of his injury, he hopes that he heals before the season really begins.

Doncic’s stellar performance against wolves

Luka Doncic delivered a stellar performance against the Minnesota Timberwolves in a preseason game in Abu Dhabi. Doncic had a 25-point game, which is exceptionally well for a player and stunning considering the player who delivered such a performance has been battling an injury.

The great performance by Doncic, however, was not enough to secure the win for the Dallas Mavericks and they had to face defeat with a final score of 111-99. Dallas had a bad start, conceding 37 points in the first quarter itself. But Luka and his teammates picked up the pace, outscoring their opponents in the remaining three quarters but unfortunately being unable to win.

Luka Doncic battles through lingering thigh injury

Luka Doncic initially injured his thigh back in March of 2023. He was unable to participate in five game after suffering the injury but returned soon after and played the entire FIBA World Cup with the injury, representing the Slovenian national team. Overall, he had a good World Cup but was unable to win the tournament; he secured seventh place with his team in the competition.

Doncic has said that the injury is “not okay,” but he is able to play through it. When asked about Luka’s injury, the Mavs coach, Jason Kidd, said, “I think hopefully, as we go forward, that he will be ready to go.” Although Doncic is able to play through the injury, he needs to be properly monitored, as it can develop into a more serious case. He has to take rest whenever he can to properly heal and get better.
