Dwain Price: Luka just said he’s “questionable” for tonight’s game against the Clippers. He said he will work out prior to the game and see how he feels. He has missed the last 3 games with sprains in his left knee and left ankle.

Luka today after shootaround in LA about his left knee/ankle sprains “It’s all right. It’s still painful. We’ll see how I feel before the game. We’ll do everything possible to try to play.” Mavs and Clippers tonight at 9:30 CST on BSSW. – 3:03 PM

Luka Doncic went through shootaround this morning and said he’ll “do everything to try to play” tonight against Clippers. He’s missed the past 3 games with knew&ankle sprains. Yesterday at practice he bumped knees with a video coordinator but said that’s not affecting him. – 2:53 PM

Luka is getting buckets again at this morning’s shootaround in LA. Check my Twitter in a few, because he’s going to talk to the media shortly and tell us whether he’s playing tonight against the Clippers. @Dallas Mavericks pic.twitter.com/rMOdrhHjus2:14 PM

Stay tuned for a Luka update soon 🚨
He’s going to talk to media after Mavs’ shootaround, which is happening right now.
Luka doesn’t usually do interviews in non-postgame settings, so I’ll have a rare Tuesday morning update here soon. pic.twitter.com/RuzGEx7S8m1:52 PM

More on this storyline

Callie Caplan: The update on Luka is, well, not a huge update. He said he’s still questionable and will test his knee and ankle pre-game, but “I will do everything possible to play.” Said the knee pain is still there, but when he bumped knees with a teammate yesterday, it didn’t make it worse. -via Twitter @CallieCaplan / November 23, 2021

During the Mavericks’ practice Monday afternoon, Luka Doncic appeared to be as close to game ready as he’d been since spraining his left knee and ankle Nov. 15. Until he shouted in pain. Doncic, who’d been practicing in a 5-on-5 scrimmage during the portion of the workout open to reporters, came off the Terasaki Budokan court abruptly and sat on the bleachers, grabbing at his left knee. -via Dallas Morning News / November 22, 2021

Director of player health and performance Casey Smith and close friend and teammate Boban Marjanovic were two of the people who walked over to check on him. Soon after, a trainer wrapped a bag of ice around Doncic’s knee with an ace bandage. -via Dallas Morning News / November 22, 2021
