Luka Doncic is on his way to returning to Dallas Mavericks lineup for the Christmas Day clash with the Utah Jazz.

The superstar of Dallas has missed the past five games, as he is dealing with a left ankle soreness. That injury also cost Doncic another three games back in November. The Mavs have won only twice in the eight games they have played without Doncic (2-6).

However, the team is hopeful the MVP candidate will make his return vs the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. If that happens, Luka Doncic will be available for the battle with the Jazz on Christmas.

Dallas (14-15) will seek to snap a two-game losing streak, when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves (15-15). The Wolves have won four straight.
