Luka Doncic is widely viewed as one of the top superstars in the NBA. There's no doubt that he is an elite offensive engine that can uplift an entire team. Over the course of the regular season, Luka Doncic put up 28.4 PPG, 9.1 RPG, and 8.7 APG.

The Dallas Mavericks recently lost their first playoff game against the Utah Jazz. Luka Doncic was sidelined for the game, and Adrian Wojnarowski previously revealed that "there's a lot of concern around how quickly Luka Doncic will be available" in the playoff series against the Utah Jazz.

"There's a lot of concern around how quickly Luka Doncic will be available in this playoff series against Utah. If this were the regular season, you wouldn't even talk about Luka Doncic playing games this weekend. But it's the postseason and a Dallas team that is built so much around Luka. This calf strain is a little more than a mild strain. They're going to keep working on him around the clock... The hope is he will play in the series, but there's uncertainty on whether he will be on the floor when the series starts on Saturday."

There is no doubt that the Dallas Mavericks would have had a much better chance of beating the Utah Jazz today if they had their superstar. It seems as though Luka Doncic was sad about not being able to play, as a camera caught him looking dejected during the game.

Hopefully, we do see Luka Doncic end up playing in the series. He is the type of player that can make the game easier for his teammates, and the Mavericks will need him back as soon as possible.

As of now though, the team will have to figure out a way to win a game or two without their superstar. They still have solid players on the roster in Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson, and perhaps we'll see them pull out a victory ahead of Luka Doncic's potential comeback.
