Luka Dončić Returns On Tuesday

Mavericks star Luka Dončić will return to action tonight against the Clippers, the team announced (Twitter link). He’s missed the last three games with left knee and ankle sprains.

We noted earlier today that Dončić appeared to aggravate the injury during Monday’s practice, but evidently another day of rest and recovery has enabled him to feel healthy enough to play.

In 13 games, Luka is averaging a fantastic 24.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.9 assists (34.8 MPG), but his shooting line of .434/.308/.679 is below his normal standard. He signed a five-year, maximum-salary contract extension over the summer that starts next season.

The Mavs face the Clippers at 9:30 PM CT.
