Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks star, is unable to play in Game 2 against Utah Jazz because of a strain on his calf

DALLAS Luka DoncicThe is again available for the Dallas MavericksIn Game 2 of their playoff series, they face off against the Utah JazzCoach Jason Kidd stated that the young star guard continues to make progress after a strained left leg.

Monday's Game 2 is eight days after Doncic suffered a serious injury in the regular season finale.

The Mavericks lost Game 1 to the Jazz 99-93 on Saturday. The best-of-7 series continues with Game 3 in Utah on Thursday night.

Doncic has returned to individual shooting and even took a half court shot during Monday's team walkthrough.

Kidd did not elaborate on Doncic's progress before the game.

After the team's morning walkthrough, the coach said that All-Star, 23 years old, was “definitely moving in the right directions” and is doing more each day.

“As I have said since the beginning, he is in a great mental place. Kidd said that he has been cheerful, and that he joked. Sometimes, you can become grumpy when you are hurt. If you're older and you get hurt, you get grumpy. He is young. He is doing all he can to get to this point. If he doesn't, we can still play without him.

Dallas is now 8-10 this season without Doncic, including the Game 1 loss at the Jazz.
