The New York Times’ Marc Stein reports that Doncic will undergo an MRI on Friday. The Mavericks’ next scheduled game is Friday night against the Houston Rockets.

Doncic is averaging 28.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists while shooting 46.4 percent from the floor as he makes an All-NBA bid during his second season in the league.
