HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic will be out at least six games with a sprained right ankle.
Doncic was injured during a scrimmage in practice on Thursday and coach Rick Carlisle said before Friday’s game against the Houston Rockets that he’d be out until at least Monday, February 10.READ MORE: North Texas Synagogue Hostage-Taker Malik Faisal Akram Told Family He Came To US To Find A Bride
Carlisle added that he expects that Doncic will be healthy in time to participate in the All-Star Game after he was selected to the team for the first time and voted a starter.

Carlisle said the Mavericks expect to have an update on Doncic’s condition on February 8, which is the day of the sixth game.
“There’s not much I can say about the timetable because one day in it’s really hard to know exactly what the timetable is,” Carlisle said. “Once it gets to be two or three or four days it becomes a little clearer.”
The 20-year-old star is averaging 28.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists this season.MORE NEWS: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Diagnosed With COVID-19
