The Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz are getting ready to play Game 1 of their first-round series on Saturday at American Airlines Center. Much of the attention has been placed on the injury status of superstar Luka Doncic, who suffered a calf strain in Sunday’s 130-120 season-finale win over the San Antonio Spurs.

On Monday, an MRI confirmed the diagnosis. Despite Doncic undergoing treatment throughout the week, the quick turnaround before the playoff opener raised doubt about his status.
