The Dallas Mavericks' first game of the regular season is exactly one week away, and everyone around the league seems to be buzzing about Dallas' matchup with Victor Wembanyama and the San Antonio Spurs on October 25.
Wembanyama is one of the most promising prospects of all time, and everyone is excited to see how Dallas' new-look roster performs around Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
Although Doncic suffered a calf strain last week, he was at the Mavericks' facility on Wednesday working on his game.
Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic gets fans buzzing with new look
In photos that were posted on his Instagram story, you can see Doncic working on his shooting on Dallas' off day with new forward Grant Williams. Fans aren't buzzing that Luka has already started minor activities since his injury, but they are buzzing about his new look.
In the four photos that Doncic posted on his Instagram story, he can be seen wearing a headband. Doncic has been spotted wearing a headband during practice in the past, but never a game.
This is the first time that Doncic has worn a headband in a while it seems, and this is a look that he could take into the regular season. Doncic has never been a player who wears accessories during games often, but the headband look could be something that he rolls with.
Doncic is entering his sixth season in the NBA, and this season is as crucial as ever as the Mavericks' window to win with both Kyrie and Luka is short. Dallas is only guaranteed two more years of Irving and three more years of Doncic. Both stars have been battling injuries over the last week, but it seems they are both trending in the right direction for a return soon. Irving has been a full participant at practice while Doncic has already been ruled out for Dallas' next preseason game.
Dallas will wrap up their preseason this Friday (October 20) against the Detroit Pistons at the American Airlines Center.
For all the latest news and rumors on Kyrie Irving, Luka Doncic, and the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
