Update on Luka Doncic injury

Luka Doncic just came back on his third game after the injury. Again he landed badly when he drives to the basket and Dwight Howard blocked his shot.

The second-year guard comeback in the second half finished with 19 points, 7 assists, and four boards in a loss against the Los Angeles Lakers 108-95.

“It was scary,” said Doncic, who entered the game averaging 29.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 9.1 assists. “I fell on my back, hit my head and my elbow. I was OK.”

After the game, he was examined with a concussion protocol.

Luka Doncic briefly entered the concussion protocol during Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers after suffering a hard fall to the court during a first-half drive to the hoop.

The Mavericks lost to the Lakers twice already compared to one win. They fall to 21-11 still on fifth seed.
