Luka Dončić (left ankle soreness) and Christian Wood (right ankle sprain) are questionable.
Finney-Smith (right adductor strain), Green (right elbow sprain), Kleber (right hamstring tear) all remain out.
Tonight will be the second day in a row the Blazers play the Mavs, with Portland winning the first game 136-119. Hardaway Jr. hurt the ankle during last night’s game as he tried to get around a Jabari Walker screen with 7:14 remaining in the fourth quarter. He didn’t return, finishing with 10 points (2-7 3PT) and 2 rebounds in 32 minutes.
Doncic wasn’t listed on yesterday’s injury report with any designation. He scored a season-low 15 points in nearly 36 minutes, while posting 10 assists and 6 rebounds.
Wood was also listed as “questionable” for last night’s game and was ruled out of the lineup before the game began.
The injury issues are stacking up for the Mavs, with Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh Green and Maxi Kleber already out of the current lineup due to injuries.
Luka Doncic is out for tonight’s contest. Christian Wood is available to play.
