Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Luka Doncic could return to action sometime after Christmas.

Doncic is dealing with an ankle injury (ankle sprain) and has missed Dallas’ last four games.

“The group of games after Christmas is definitely in play, but nothing has been determined yet,” coach Carlisle told reporters, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

The Mavericks are also optimistic that Doncic could be available for the match against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday (26/12).
