In the second quarter of Tuesday’s game between Mavericks and Clippers’ game, Jalen Brunson suffered a foot injury after Ivica Zubac fell on him. Following his injury, Mavericks PR reported that Brunson would not return with a foot injury.
Earlier this week, Callie Caplan of the Dallas Morning News, Brunson’s X-rays came back negative. That same afternoon, former Los Angeles Lakers head trainer, Marco Nunez shared with FortyEightMinutes.com, that with Brunson’s X-rays coming back negative he avoids injuries such as a Jones fracture.
On Friday afternoon following practice, Brunson shared that he was a full participant in Friday’s practice.
“I just remember somebody landing on my foot,” Brunson said on Friday afternoon while recounting the incident in the second quarter of Tuesday’s overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers. “I found out it was Zubac. That’s a big guy landing on the side of your foot.
I thought the worst, honestly. Every day has been better. I was able to practice the entire time on Friday. I feel good.”
Brunson is currently listed as questionable for the game against the Washington Wizards on Saturday.
