Mavs without Doncic for Game 3 against Jazz
Luka Doncic was ruled out of Game 3 between the Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz on Thursday, according to multiple reports.
Mavs point guard Doncic missed the first two games of the Western Conference first-round series with a left calf strain.
The Slovenian was upgraded to questionable after taking part in full practice on Wednesday but shortly before tip-off it was determined that he would not feature at Vivint Arena.
Doncic will now aim to make his return from the injury sustained in the final outing of the regular season in Game 4 on Saturday.
Dallas and Utah took a game apiece from the opening two clashes, leaving the series tied at 1-1.
