Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is available to play in Game 3 against the Minnesota Timberwolves after the team earlier deemed him questionable due to soreness in his sprained left knee.

Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd delivered the news to reporters before the game Sunday and said that Doncic would go through his pre-game routine before deciding whether he could play.

Dallas is returning home with a 2-0 series lead after Doncic hit a game-winning three in the final moments of Game 2. The shot capped off a 32-point, 10-rebound and 13-assist triple-double that saw the Mavericks use a huge second-half comeback to take control of the series.

The 25-year-old Doncic is averaging 28.0 points, 9.3 assists and 9.4 rebounds over 14 games in the playoffs.
