Doncic returns to Mavericks' lineup after birth of child, but Irving sits with foot injury

DALLAS (AP) - Luka Doncic returned to the Mavericks' lineup Saturday night against Oklahoma City after missing a game following the birth of a daughter, but fellow star guard Kyrie Irving was sidelined by a foot injury.

Doncic didn't play Friday in a home loss to Memphis after his fiancee, Anamaria Goltes, gave birth to their daughter, Gabriela.

Irving finished with a season-low 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting in the 108-94 loss, when he tweaked his foot.

Sixth man Tim Hardaway Jr., the team's third-leading scorer, missed his second consecutive game with back spasms. Occasional starter Josh Green is out with an elbow injury and Dante Exum missed his second straight game because of personal reasons.

Dallas was already missing reserve big man Maxi Kleber, who's played one game since Nov. 1 because of a dislocation of his right small toe.
