The Dallas Mavericks' first man Luka Dončić left training for Monday because of illness, but still traveled with the team to Houston, where his team was waiting for a new match at night. The Slovenian basketball player still asks if he will play.
For the exact same type of illness as Luka Doncic, they did not report from Dallas. If he does not enter the park in Houston, this will be the first NBA match he has to lose due to force majeure.
But that was a good sign that he, along with his team-mates, boarded the plane. Before the match, headquarters staff with head coach Rick Carlisle will decide whether he will send the best Dallas basketball players to the battle with the Rockets.
Luka played 18 matches and was Teličkov's best individual with 19.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists, and his absence against Houston would have been a big blow.
Dončić does what he wants
Asked by Doncic, Smith jr. and Powell
Dallas also questioned the appearance of Dennis Smith Jr., who had a problem with his wrist. Statuses like Doncic also have Dwight Powell (knee), but of course not in the work of veteran Dirk Nowitzki.
"He did good training, so I am optimistic," Carlisle said of Smith, who took off his right wrist in Saturday's match against Boston, and was training on Monday.
Powell has been on the sidelines since Wednesday before, and there are more positive signs that he will soon be able to return to work.
"Houston means various challenges that we don't have this season." James Harden and Chris Paul have two MVP players, and a great team is built around them. "We have to play well in defense," Carlisle said.

In Dallas, they hope Paul isn't ready
But maybe the job will be a little easier, because Paul wrote the bell to be billed with Dallas. He had a problem with the thigh muscle, but he himself stressed that he would not want to go back to parquet. That is why it may not work at night or at night.
Dallas is a team that is hotter in recent times than Houston, which lost the last three matches, all in a roaming base. At home, the Rockets have four wins and four defeats. That's why Dallas is very bad at guest appearances. At home with eight wins and only two defeats, he only scored one victory in eight matches. If Dončić and company want to attack the end, they must play on foreign land with more enthusiasm. And at night, there will be new opportunities.
