Tests revealed no structural damage to Doncic's ankle or knee, per the reports.

Apart from the Slovenian guard, the Mavs will be without Maxi Kleber, who's suffering from left oblique strain.

Doncic, 22, is accompanying the team on its four-game road trip and will be evaluated daily. He's expected to miss some time.

Doncic was injured in the final minute of the Mavericks' win over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. He rolled his ankle and limped off the court.

The Mavs play the second of two in Phoenix on Friday before playing two games in Los Angeles against the Clippers on Sunday and next Tuesday.

Doncic is averaging 24.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.9 assists in 13 games.
