As if there was any doubt, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle confirmed that G/F Luka Doncic (ankle) will partake in the Rising Stars game and All-Star Game this weekend in Chicago.

Doncic has been dealing with a sprained ankle, but is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday vs. the Kings as a tune-up to All-Star Weekend. The sophomore will be on Team World for the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday and is an All-Star starter for Team LeBron in the All-Star Game on Sunday.
