Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic missed Game 1 and 2 against the Utah Jazz due to a strained left calf. However, it appears he's ready to go for Game 3.

On Thursday, a video of Doncic at practice surfaced on social media. The All-Star point guard's calf was healthy enough for him to work on his soccer skills.

Although the Mavericks still have Doncic listed as questionable for Game 3, it certainly looks like he'll be able to suit up for tonight's game. At least that's what NBA fans believe.

"I've seen enough, no way you're stopping this man from playing tonight," one fan said.

"He's ready to go," another fan wrote.

"Utah might be in trouble," a third fan said.

Doncic spoke about his health earlier this week. He's unsure if he'll be 100 percent at any point this series, but he'll suit up as long as there's no risk of re-aggravating his calf strain.

"I don't know if I'm going to be 100 percent. I think that's tough right now," Doncic said, via ESPN. "But if I'm ready and there's no risk of [aggravating the] injury, I'll be out there."

The Mavericks will provide an update on Doncic's status later today.
