Dallas Mavericks All-Star Luka Doncic has been ruled out for Game 2 of the first-round playoff series with the Utah Jazz in Dallas on Monday night with his calf injury.

Head coach Jason Kidd earlier Monday said the Mavericks planned to "check on" Doncic again before tipoff to gauge his status. Doncic did not participate in the team's shootaround Monday.

The Jazz won the first game of the series on Saturday as the Mavericks held out hope Doncic might be back for Game 2. He averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game this season.

In two March victories over the Jazz, Doncic had 67 points, 26 rebounds, and 12 assists.

Doncic was present for the team workout Monday and shot for more than 20 minutes.

He's eight days removed from the injury but Kidd said Doncic is participating in meetings and "in a good spot" in that he's not frustrated or disconnected from the team.
