Luka Doncic

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, there’s optimism the Dallas Mavericks star guard Luka Doncic will return for Game 3 (Thursday) or Game 4 (Saturday) vs. the Utah Jazz.

The calf strain that Doncic suffered on April 10 is improving and workouts over the next two days could determine comeback timing.

The Series is currently tied 1-1, Game 3 is Thursday night in Utah, where Dallas has lost its last 11 games.
