Dallas Mavericks wing Wesley Matthews is doubtful to face the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 12 and more Mavs news heading into the game.

The Dallas Mavericks are looking to continue their recent run of strong play against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.  The Mavs have won two of their last three games including an impressive victory over the Thunder on Saturday.

The Mavericks have to travel to Chicago to face the Bulls.  Road games have been a problem for Dallas this season.  They are winless in six contests away from the American Airlines Center.  The Mavs did beat the Bulls in Dallas on Oct. 22, though.

The injury report is looking worrisome for Monday’s game as well.  According to the NBA’s official document, Dirk is set to miss another game, but more troubling is the status of Wesley Matthews.  He is listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury.  Matthews is known as Iron Man for a reason, but the guard suiting up against the Bulls looks bleak.

Fans should also monitor the status of Luka Doncic.  He is questionable with a right thigh contusion.  Doncic collided with a Thunder player in the third quarter and was seen noticeably limping late in Saturday’s game.  The rookie finished things out and played well down the stretch.  Monitor that nothing has changed for the rookie during the trip to the Windy City.
