Davis Bertans Fri, Feb 3 Calf

Maxi Kleber Thu, Feb 2 Hamstring
Expected to be out until at least Feb 13

Saturday’s game against the Warriors was Wood’s last chance to play, but the Mavericks are hopeful that he will be able to return Monday against the Jazz or Wednesday against the Clippers. His recovery from a fractured left thumb has been going well as of late; he took part in a post-practice scrimmage on Friday after being given the all-clear to practice on Thursday.

Dinwiddie’s right knee injury has made his status for Saturday’s game against the Warriors uncertain.

Bertans departed Thursday’s game against the Pelicans with a left calf strain, forcing him to sit out at least one game.

Although he was given the green light to resume full contact practice on Thursday, Kleber (hamstring) will miss the Mavericks’ upcoming five-game road trip. Kleber has been out since Dec. 12 with a right knee sprain and hamstring tear.

  • Luka Doncic – Out vs. Warriors

Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports that despite the team’s best efforts, Doncic (heel) will be sidelined for Saturday’s game against the Warriors. However, Doncic may be able to return to action at some point during the team’s five-game road trip.

Doncic won’t make the trip out west to start the series, so he’ll miss at least Saturday’s game and maybe more. Doncic’s return to the court could be signaled by reports of his return to the squad during the west coast swing. The earliest that could occur at this point in Utah is Monday.

In the short term, Spencer Dinwiddie is expected to take over as the starting point guard, with additional minutes for Reggie Bullock, Frank Ntilikina, and Josh Green.

Doncic (heel) missed Friday’s practice after leaving Thursday’s win over the Pelicans with a bruised right heel and returning later in the game. Doncic was trying to make a layup when he was thrown off balance. He landed awkwardly on his heel before collapsing to the floor on his hip. NBA player for the Mavericks looked extremely distressed.

He played for only 23 minutes but still managed to score 31 points (12-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-8 FT), grab eight boards, dish out four assists, and steal two bases.

Doncic’s status for Saturday’s game against the Warriors is in doubt, according to coach Jason Kidd. The 23-year-injury old’s isn’t thought to be serious, but it’s still unknown how much time he’ll miss due to it.


Andre Iguodala Fri, Feb 3 Hip
Expected to be out until at least Feb 6
Patrick Baldwin Jr. Fri, Feb 3 Illness

Draymond Green Fri, Feb 3 Calf

Stephen Curry Fri, Feb 3 Lower Leg

Klay Thompson Fri, Feb 3 Achilles
Game Time Decision
  • Klay Thompson – Questionable

Thompson is questionable for Saturday’s game against Dallas because he is sick with something that is not COVID.

After missing Thursday’s game against Denver to rest his injured right Achilles tendon, Thompson is now dealing with an ailment that could force him to miss a second consecutive game.

It’s possible that several Golden State reserves will start on Saturday due to the absences of Draymond Green (calf) and Stephen Curry (lower leg).

  • Stephen Curry and Draymond Green injury update for Saturday’s game

Due to a lower left leg contusion, Curry is listed as probable for Saturday’s game against the Mavericks.

While Curry has been listed as questionable before because of a shoulder injury, this is the first time his lower leg has been mentioned as a potential source of trouble. Fortunately for the Warriors, the injury does not appear to be serious, and Curry will be available to start at point guard for the Warriors on Saturday.

There is some doubt about the suitability of green (calf) for this match. Green’s availability for Thursday’s game against the Nuggets was in question due to soreness in his right calf, and he was eventually ruled out. Whether or not he will be able to play on Saturday depends on how much pain he is still experiencing from the injury. In the event that Green is benched, Jonathan Kuminga may once again take on a more significant role.

Since Jan. 13, Iguodala has been sidelined by right hip pain. While it is currently unknown when he will be able to return to action, his next opportunity to do so will be on Monday when the Thunder visit.

Baldwin has played sparingly this season and has not played since January 20. There should be no impact on head coach Steve Kerr’s starting lineup due to his availability.
