Luka Doncic (ankle) ruled out Wednesday for Mavericks
Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets.
Doncic may have tweaked his ankle during Monday's matchup, but he was still able to play 38 minutes and record a double-double. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely replace Doncic in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Jalen Brunson will also have more shot opportunities and there will be minutes available for Trey Burke and Josh Green.
numberFire's models currently project Dinwiddie for 36.3 minutes and 36.0 FanDuel points on Wednesday. Brunson is projected for 36.4 minutes and 35.3 FanDuel points.
