In the second half, Mavericks star Luka Doncic grabbed his left calf and called for a timeout. He was then helped into the dressing room with Team Director of Player Health and Safety Casey Smith, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
The Mavericks officially ruled out Doncic for the remainder of the game due to a left calf strain.
