Luka Doncic is expected to play for the Slovenian national team this summer, according to Dallas Mavericks general manager Nico Harrison, even if it means he will have to “fight through injuries.”

Harrison remarked, “You guys all know Luka, you see the way he moves.” “He was in pain.” He’s a fighter, though, so he will persevere despite all of those wounds. He is simply that way. He enjoys playing a lot. He clearly has multiple injuries spread throughout his body. You may observe how he runs and walks. But once more, he’s a warrior, so he’ll battle through it,” Harrison stated in reference to Doncic, as reported by Joey Mistretta of ClutchPoints.

“I believe that representing his country on the international front is one of his greatest thrills. Therefore, I believe that he will most likely go outside and play for them as long as he can walk. That’s what I would anticipate,” he continued.

Luka Doncic was sidelined by a sprained ankle, a sore knee, and a thoracic (chest) contusion that required medication, all of which had an impact on his play as the Dallas Mavericks made an unexpected trip to the NBA Finals.
