Star of Dallas’ Luka Doncic (23, Slovenia) returns in one game after missing an ankle injury.
The Dallas club announced on the 31st (hereinafter Korean time) through its official social network service (SNS) that Luka Doncic could play in the game. Along with this, a video of Doncic entering the stadium while walking on his own was also posted.
Doncic had previously left the field due to an ankle injury in the 3rd minute of the first quarter against the Portland Tracers on the 27th. On this day, Doncic failed to return to the court and failed to play in the game against Utah Jazz on the 29th. 메이저놀이터
Dallas is 26-25 this season and is in seventh place in the Western Conference. However, they recorded a 5-game losing streak when Doncic was absent this season. Especially without Doncic, Dallas’ performance declines to a level you can’t keep your eyes open for.
So, if Dallas manager Jason Kidd can get Doncic out, he’s trying to make the most of it. In response, Dallas fans said, “The Detroit match is a game where Doncic needs to rest”, “Just rest”, “Are you trying to present Victor Wenbanyama to Detroit?” The main reaction was that Doncic should take a break from this game.
Detroit is 13-38 (0.255) this season, 15th in the Eastern Conference and 29th in the NBA behind the Houston Rockets.
Meanwhile, Dallas also reported the absence of Maxi Clever (left ankle sprain) and Christian Wood (left thumb fracture) following the news that Doncic was available to play.
