Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has been ruled out 

for Game 3 against the Utah Jazz on Thursday night. 

"He continues to progress, but as we said from the start with this injury, 

we're going to be cautious," Mavs coach Jason Kidd said pregame.  

We feel like sitting him tonight follows that plan. 

Doncic missed Games 1 and 2 with a left calf injury

but has progressively increased his workload on the practice floor in recent days. 

Doncic stayed at Vivint Arena after most of his teammates left Thursday morning 

Feeling great," Doncic told ESPN as he was leaving the arena.
