Mavs’ Doncic out, Kyrie doubtful vs. Grizzlies on Saturday.

dallas mavericks star luka doncic will not play in Saturday night’s road game against the Memphis Grizzlies due to a left thigh strain, and Kyrie Irving‘s status is in question after he missed Friday practice for personal reasons.

“Hopefully he can join us in Memphis,” Mavs coach Jason Kidd told reporters of Irving.

The Mavericks listed Irving as questionable for the game against the Grizzlies because of soreness in his right foot when they released their injury report later Friday.

Doncic’s left thigh has been bothering him for several games and has become increasingly sore, leading the All-Star to walk out of Wednesday’s 113-106 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans in the third quarter.

An MRI on Doncic’s thigh on Thursday revealed no damage, and Doncic will return once discomfort permits, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Mavs consider Doncic’s state of affairs, Kidd said.

Dallas is 5-7 since Irving joined the team after a successful trade with the Brooklyn Nets. That includes a 3-6 record in games Doncic and Irving have played.
