All-Star guard Luka Doncic has entered the NBA's health and safety protocols following several Dallas Mavericks.

Doncic had been sidelined with an ankle issue, missing the Mavericks' past five games, but he had been close to returning for Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Mavericks are also scheduled to play the Utah Jazz on Saturday.

The Slovenian is now a major doubt for the upcoming slate of Dallas games, with players needing to return consecutive negative tests in a 24-hour period or be sidelined for 10 days before they can return to play.

The Mavericks have already lost Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr, Maxi Kleber and Josh Green in protocols. Dallas center Kristaps Porzingis was listed as questionable for the Bucks game due to a toe complaint.

Doncic is averaging 25.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.5 assists this season. The 22-year-old had a career-best scoring return in the 2019-20 season with 28.8 points per game.
