Luka Doncic has himself injured. The Slovenian had to close prematurely the game between his Dallas Mavericks and the Pelicans (won 106-113 by New Orleans) because of a muscle discomfort in the left thigh.
An injury whose dynamics and recovery time are all to be clarified. There was, in fact, no contact that caused it but it is a situation that has been worsening over the days, as explained by the Slovenian after the match.
I don’t feel good. I started to feel some pain after the All Star Game, usually these injuries are caused by contact, instead I did not collide with anyone and this thing immediately seemed very strange. I couldn’t tell what kind of problem it is but I can never really get into a rhythm, I don’t run well, I lack momentum when I jump. It’s not easy at all to find solutions and make a difference in these conditions.
Conditions that explain the bad shooting percentages in the last two outings with 5/20 from three-point range and an 18/46 overall for Doncic in the 120-116 win against Utah and precisely in the loss to New Orleans. Everyone in Dallas is holding their breath. to figure out how long the Slovenian will have to sit out, just now when the right amalgamation with Kyrie Irving was beginning to form, as evidenced by the pair’s super performance against Philadelphia. Expected in the coming hours are the results of the MRI Doncic underwent.
