Mavericks guard Luka Doncic, who's been dealing with some lower back tightness, was officially ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, according to head coach Rick Carlisle. (Tim MacMahon on Twitter)
Carlisle added that Doncic's lower back has been troubling him for 2 1/2 weeks and "it's just something where he needed to take a game." Doncic has been on a typical tear over the last few weeks, which is all the more impressive considering he's been dealing with a back issue. A day off should do him some good. Jalen Brunson figures to be the biggest beneficiary of Doncic's absence with Trey Burke mixing in as well. Brunson is a strong DFS play if you can work him into your lineups as he's been playing extremely well over the last month.
