Doncic injuries ankle, puts Game 4 in question
Doncic turned his ankle in the third quarter of Game 3 and continued playing, but looked to be in pain. He eventually left and did not return. He limped off to the locker room.
Afterward, he told reporters “it’s not that bad” and made sure to note it was not the ankle he’s had problems with in the past. In 30 minutes on the court he had a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The Clippers lead the series, 2-1, with Friday night’s 130-122 victory. Kawhi Leonard led all scorers with 36 points. He nearly had a triple-double with nine rebounds and eight assists. Game 4 is Sunday afternoon.
Mavs coach Rick Carlisle appeared to hint after the game that Doncic might not play in that game. It would be a blow to a squad trying to avoid a detrimental series hole.
