Reserve guard Dante Exum will also sit out against the Grizzlies because of personal reasons. Doncic and Exum were both added to the NBA’s official injury report on the 12:30 p.m. ET release Friday.
This will be the first game missed this season for Doncic, who has been a first-team All-NBA selection the past four seasons. He is averaging 31.1 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.9 assists per game for the 11-6 Mavericks.
