DETROIT (AP) — Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is out for Thursday night’s game at Detroit because of a left elbow issue.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Dorian Finney-Smith (left leg) is also out, but Kristaps Porzingis (left ankle) and Josh Richardson (right hamstring) are available.
Detroit is without several players, including Jerami Grant (right knee), Mason Plumlee (rest) and Wayne Ellington (calf).
Doncic is third in the NBA in scoring at 28.6 points per game. He is coming off a 39-point performance in a win over Golden State on Tuesday night.
This will be the sixth game he’s missed this season.
