Luka Doncic suffered thigh strain and he is set to undergo MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic is set to undergo MRI following his early exit in their loss against New Orleans.

He had exited the 113-106 loss at New Orleans in the third quarter of the match due to  a left thigh strain.

When asked how the thigh felt, Doncic replied : “It’s not good.”

Doncic stated that he would undergo an MRI on Thursday to determine the severity of the injury.

He add earlier mentioned soreness in the thigh when speaking the media after Saturday’s game against the Phoenix Suns but said Wednesday the injury has been lingering for longer than that.

“I think it was the second game after the All-Star break,” He said. “Something like that.”

The Mavs’ second game after the All-Star break was against the San Antonio Spurs, a 142-116 victory for Dallas. He said he woke up the morning after the game and his thigh was hurting.

“I don’t think so, because normally I’d get hit in the thigh,” Doncic said when asked if he has had an injury like this before. “This one, I didn’t get hit. So this is kind of weird for me. I don’t really know what it is.”

Asked when it affects him the most, the guard replied, “Just getting my rhythm. Running. I can feel it mostly on the jump shots because you need both legs. So pushing off has been really hard for me.”
