This Saturday at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California, the Dallas Mavericks will take on the Sacramento Kings in a Western Conference showdown.
The latest injury report for Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks
Let the Kingly festivities begin!
With 33 points, De’Aaron Fox was Sacramento’s top scorer. After beating the Houston Rockets twice in as many games, the Kings were riding high.
Domantas Sabonis’ 18 points, 10 boards, and 7 assists led the Kings to victory. He leads the NBA in double-doubles with 43.
Fox’s replacement as an NBA All-Star was just announced. He’s never made it to the All-Star Game before, but this year is his first!
Okpala has missed over a week of work due to a knee injury, but he is continuing to make progress. The rematch against Dallas today is his next chance to suit up after a lengthy layoff.
Monk’s status for the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader against Dallas is currently in question due to his injury.
In 15 minutes of action, he recorded eight points (3-for-7 from the field, 0-for-2 from beyond the arc, 2-for-2 from the foul line), two rebounds, four dimes, and a block.
Against the Sacramento Kings, the Dallas Mavericks prevailed 122-114 on Friday night, giving them their third consecutive victory.
Is Kyrie Irving prepared to play tonight?
Kyrie Irving scores 25 points and provides 10 assists. He was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Dallas Mavericks.
He was playing in only his second game since joining the squad. On his first game with the Dallas Mavericks, a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on the road, he scored 24 points.
In addition, he ran the table on Saturday’s game.
For the Mavericks’ part, Kleber (hamstring) will keep him out of action for the upcoming five-game road trip.
Yet, on Thursday, he will be able to return to full contact practice. After the Mavericks return from their road trip, Kleber will have just two more chances to play before the All-Star break. His current priority is getting home in time for the celebrations.
He was ruled out of action on December 12 due to a torn hamstring and injured right knee. Increasing his physical activity should help paint a clearer picture of his health improvement.
Luka Doncic – “QUESTIONABLE”
Despite being listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against Sacramento, Doncic was expected to play.
However, the rookie suffered heel pain during Thursday’s pickup game and will likely need at least one more day of rest before returning to action.
The 23-year-old hopes to play in today’s rematch against the Kings and is being closely monitored so that he doesn’t return too soon.
