Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has grown out his beard during the NBA’s hiatus. Check out his new look and more here.

The Dallas Mavericks are improving. Playoff basketball was set to return this season, and things should only go up from here. With All-Star Luka Doncic leading the charge, the Mavs are a team nobody wants to face. The 21-year-old is walking triple-double and one of the league’s best playmakers.

The NBA season is on suspension right now because of the novel coronavirus. There is no word yet on if play will resume, but that could play in favor of the Mavericks. The league will be looking to abbreviate the schedule, but pack the game into a short window.

Faster turnarounds favor younger plays. The Mavs have two stars under 25, and J.J. Barea figures to be the only consistent rotation player over 30 years old.

Dallas fans cannot wait for basketball and normal life to return. The players have been staying active and trying to interact with fans during the quarantine. Here is a look at Luka’s latest Instagram post.

Supporting the beard

Doncic shared a picture featuring his dog Gia on a plane on Monday. See the photo below.

Luka has his playoff beard in full swing. It is not the first time fans have seen him with facial hair. Doncic rocked a beard for stretches in both of his seasons in Dallas. Wonder Boy has it longer than ever before, though.

Other players across the league are growing out their quarantine beards. It will be interesting to see if Doncic keeps the facial hair when basketball resumes.

One thing is for certain. The Dallas Mavericks will be ready when play returns. Their players have been expressing their desire to get back on the court and compete since the hiatus began. The Mavs want to prove they can contend right now. They need to gain that valuable playoff experience too.
