Disappointing but no surprise that Mavs have ruled out Luka for tomorrow vs CHA as well as tonight in OKC. Mavs 8-16 last 3 yrs when Luka doesnt play (inc the MIA game in Dec 2019 when he played 1:40) 1-8 going back to start of last year. Mavs-OKC 6:10 tip @theeagledallas – 5:48 PM

With no Luka tonight vs. OKC, that’s more minutes for Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke. Jason Kidd said: “Brunson and Trey have to just stay in character. They don’t have to become Luka. We talked about that, and I think those guys are going to have a great game tonight.” – 5:45 PM

Mavs star Luka Dončić is expected to miss multiple games due to persistent left ankle soreness that has already ruled him out tonight in Oklahoma City, league sources say.
A precise timetable is still being determined, sources say, as Dallas enters a Sunday/Monday back-to-back. – 4:37 PM
