After the Mavericks’ Game 3 loss on Friday, Doncic said he began experiencing pain in his neck around halftime. The discomfort went down his left arm.
Despite the pain, the 22-year-old put up 44 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
Doncic has been tremendous through the playoffs thus far, averaging 38 points, 8.7 rebounds and nine assists while shooting 51.9% from the field and 45.9% from deep.
The Mavericks lead the Clippers 2-1 in the series and will look to take a commanding 3-1 lead in Game 4 on Sunday.
