Luka Doncic Sits Out Slovenia Practice, Leading to Injury Speculation

Mavericks star Luka Doncic sat out practice with the Slovenian national team with what appears to be an ankle injury, as relayed by BasketNews.Luka Doncic

While the report itself hardly made it seem like anything serious, there is always a little bit of concern — and gobs of speculation — when a player of Doncic’s caliber is on the sidelines for any reason.

Per BasketNews, Doncic only watched practice, sitting with ice wrapped around his ankle. Slovenia is preparing to face Poland in the FIBA EuroBasket quarterfinals.

Doncic can be viewed in a video from Mozzart Sport taking in practice and walking with the ice around his ankle. If he felt any sort of pain while walking, it sure wasn’t noticeable.

EuroBasket play will wrap up in less than a week, with the Mavs and other teams set for training camp shortly thereafter.
