Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has been ruled out again for Game 3 of his team’s first-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz on Thursday.

Luka Dončić (left calf strain) is out for Game 3 in Utah.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (left foot surgery) and Frank Ntilikina (illness recovery) will remain out.

— Mavs PR (@MavsPR) April 21, 2022 Doncic, who has yet to play in the post-season, suffered a left-calf strain in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ regular-season finale against the San Antonio Spurs. After jumping to throw a pass, Doncic could be seen grabbing his calf briefly. He then asked for a timeout with 2:24 remaining and, following a discussion with the Mavericks trainer, hobbled to the locker room.

Wojnarowski has previously reported that Dallas will take a “long game” approach to his injury.

Doncic averaged 28.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game during the regular season.

The series is tied 1-1.
