The Mavericks were able to breath a sigh of relief after X-rays were taken on Luka Doncic‘s left ankle injury. Results were negative — or positive for the Mavs, as we relayed here.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Doncic is considered day-to-day after suffering the injury Thursday night, forcing the star guard to exit the win over the Suns. Doncic has a “mild sprain,” Wojnarowski reported.
Coach Jason Kidd revealed he didn’t think the injury was too serious after the game.
Backcourt-mate Spencer Dinwiddie added that Doncic seemed to be OK and isn’t likely to miss much time.
“I don’t know if he’ll be back next game, or if he’ll miss a couple or something like that,” Dinwiddie told reporters. “But it ain’t no cause for where we’re like, ‘Oh no, we’re about to go on a 10-game stretch without LD.’ He’s going to heal up nicely. He’s a young kid. Although he likes to think he’s old, he’s not.”
“I think it’s just week to week, just to see how the healing goes,” Kidd said. “It’s been a week now, so we’ll give you another update in a week just to see if there’s been any healing or improvement there.”
