The Dallas Mavericks suffered a tough loss on Tuesday as they fell to the mighty Brooklyn Nets, 102-99. Luka Doncic was able to play through his injuries on Tuesday but unfortunately for him and the Mavs, his 28-point effort was not enough against Kevin Durant and Co.
After the game, Doncic himself admitted that he was dealing with significant pain during the game. The Mavs superstar has been dealing with an ankle injury of late and he was actually tagged as questionable for Tuesday’s matchup. Luka did not look like his usual self against Brooklyn, which has prompted a lot of criticism about his weight and conditioning.
Another star that has been dealing with a similar problem is Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans. Much has been made about how Zion is currently overweight and how this has been a factor in his extended rehab process. Apparently, Doncic could be on the same boat as well.
