Mavericks All-Star Luka Dončić questionable for Game 3 vs. Timberwolves

May 26th, 2024

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić is questionable for Sunday’s Western Conference Finals Game 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves with right knee soreness.

Head coach Jason Kidd addressed his status in the hours before tipoff. Dončić’s status for the game will be determined after he goes through warmups.

Dončić has been dealing with a lingering knee sprain through much of the playoffs. He was walking gingerly when he showed up to Sunday’s game at American Airlines Center.

An MVP finalist, Dončić is in the midst of a spectacular playoff run. The regular-season scoring champion, Dončić is averaging 28 points, 9.4 rebounds, 9.3 assists and 1.4 steals per game in 14 games. He clinched Friday’s Game 2 win over the Timberwolves with a step-back 3-pointer over Rudy Gobert in the game’s final seconds.

The Mavericks enter Sunday’s game with a chance to secure a commanding lead in the series at home. They took a 2-0 lead with wins in Minnesota. A win Sunday night would give them a 3-0 lead with a trip to the NBA Finals at stake. No NBA team has ever rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.
