After a big win, the Mavericks are waiting for news on Luka Doncic’s ankle injury.

The Mavericks are waiting to hear more about Luka Doncic’s ankle injury after a big win.

Luka Doncic has struggled to start the NBA season, averaging 25.1 points, 7.7 assists, and 8.3 rebounds on 43.8 percent shooting and career lows in 3-point percentage (30.9) and free-throw percentage (68.1) entering Monday’s game against the Nuggets.

Regardless, Doncic is the Mavs’ only offensive option.

That’s why, late in Monday’s win over the Nuggets, he fell awkwardly on his left foot while defending a drive by Denver’s Austin Rivers, he gave the team a scare.

The Mavs were up by 12 points with 44 seconds left in the game, a comfortable enough lead for coach Jason Kidd to take Doncic out.

Doncic, on the other hand, was on the ground, limping away after injuring his ankle.

The severity of the injury is unknown, and the Mavericks didn’t appear to know much after the game.

“Luka walked away on his own power,” Kidd said after the game.

“He was rolled over on his lower left leg, I believe.”

So, we’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”

Mavericks vs. Exact Revenge

Nuggets are a particular type of food.

Prior to his injury, Doncic had been putting up impressive numbers, though he struggled with efficiency once more.

Despite shooting 9-for-23 from the field and 2-for-7 from beyond the arc, he had 23 points, 11 assists, and eight rebounds.

The rest of the Mavericks made up for the difference in what was Dallas’ best win of the season, defeating a Denver team that had blown out the Mavericks in their first meeting on October 29 in Denver.

The Nuggets won by a score of 26 points.

On Monday, Doncic’s teammates shot 53.7 percent from the field and 41.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Kristaps Porzingis led the team with 29 points, making five of his eight 3-point attempts on his way to an 11-for-20 field-goal percentage.

After the game, however, Luka became the center of attention.

“He’ll always say, ‘I’ll be good,'” said Porzingis.

“I’m crossing my fingers that he is.”

But I don’t think we’ve cracked it yet…
