Mavericks star Luka Doncic (ankle) doubtful vs. Rockets

Dallas Mavericks star guard Luka Doncic is doubtful for Friday's game against the Houston Rockets due to a right ankle injury.

Doncic was injured in the final minutes of Wednesday's 99-82 home win over the Golden State Warriors. He limped off the floor with 1:33 remaining.

Afterward, Doncic said he wasn't concerned about the injury.

"I twisted it, but it's not the bad one, so I guess it'll be OK," Doncic said, referring to the left ankle he injured twice earlier this season.

Doncic recently missed 10 straight games -- five due to a left ankle injury and five while in COVID-19 protocol.

The fourth-year player is averaging 25 points, 8.8 assists and 8.0 rebounds in 24 games.

The Mavericks will also be without big man Kristaps Porzingis (COVID-19 protocol) for the third straight game. He went into protocol Monday.
