The Dallas Mavericks head back out on the road to face the San Antonio Spurs on March 10. Who steps up as they deal with a plethora of injuries?
The Dallas Mavericks struggled down the stretch in a loss to the Pacers on Sunday night. They only dressed ten players as the injury bug has bitten the Mavs hard recently.
They are back on the road as the Mavericks take on the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday evening. The Spurs have lost two straight and are ten games below .500 on the season. Dallas is looking to sweep the season series from San Antonio. Expect it to be a tight game on March 10.

The Mavericks have ruled out Jalen Brunson (shoulder), Willie Cauley-Stein (illness), Seth Curry (ankle), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness), and Dwight Powell (Achilles) according to the NBA’s official injury report. Luka Doncic (wrist) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) are questionable for Tuesday’s game.

Storyline to follow: Who suits up for the Mavs?
The Mavericks have ruled out five players already with Doncic and Finney-Smith questionable to face the Spurs. If those two are sidelined, Dallas would be down to eight men dressed on Tuesday night. That could cause major issues for the Mavs.
They need Luka on the court. Having Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. gives them a fighting chance against the Spurs. Keep an eye on how Coach Rick Carlisle runs his rotation because the Mavericks will be shorthanded on March 10.
