Devin Harris had a diminished role against the Warriors on Saturday, playing 22 minutes with six points, one rebound, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.
He played well on Wednesday with 20 points, but the return on Jameer Nelson hurt him badly. Harris isn't usually this ineffective, but he played a lot of shooting guard and couldn't get many clean looks against a good Warriors defense. He has some value in deeper leagues even with Nelson healthy. Dec 13 - 4:56 PM

Devin Harris came off the bench behind J.J. Barea on Wednesday and had 20 points, two rebounds, three assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-13 shooting.

He had scored just 6, 6, 10 and 2 points in each of his previous four games, but things will change with him if Jameer Nelson will miss time with his shoulder injury. If that's the case, Harris will be worth a short-term look.
Dec 11 - 1:16 AM

Devin Harris is expected to start at PG for the Mavericks on Wednesday with Jameer Nelson (shoulder) sidelined.

J.J. Barea will also see an uptick in playing time without Nelson, and both he and Harris are worth a look for temporary value. Harris is the best bet, however, as he's been a late-round value even while stuck in a 25-minute bench role this season.
Dec 10 - 7:28 PM

Devin Harris played just 18 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday during a 107-105 win, scoring two points with three rebounds and three turnovers.

He was cruising before tonight and had a 20-point game on Tuesday even with Jameer Nelson returning from a back injury. Harris is going to come off the bench for the foreseeable future, so he is going to have his inconsistent games like this one. If you want to cut him for a hot free agent, it's not a bad idea.
Dec 4 - 12:59 AM

Devin Harris moved back to a reserve role on Tuesday, where he made all six of his 3-point attempts to finish with 20 points, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

Jameer Nelson (back) returned to action which bumped Harris from the starting lineup, but it's clearly not the end of his fantasy value. In 13 games off the bench this season, Harris was averaging 8.2 points on 41.3 percent shooting, 1.1 threes, 1.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.2 steals. He was on fire tonight and his playing time was inflated by two overtime periods, but he's still worth a long look if you need 3-pointers, dimes and steals.
Dec 3 - 12:25 AM

Devin Harris had a better game against the 76ers on Saturday with 15 points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He was not a big part of the offense on Friday, but he had many more chances tonight with Dirk Nowitzki resting. Jameer Nelson (back) should be back soon, so anyone who added Harris might want to start looking at another player to grab. Although, he was putting up 110th-ranked value on the season, so he does have some value as a bench guy.
Nov 29 - 10:12 PM

Devin Harris scored eight points with six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes on Friday night.

He only attempted four shots from the field and couldn't get many clean looks tonight in Toronto. Harris probably has another game as the starter against the 76ers and should be better.
Nov 29 - 12:30 AM

Devin Harris started at PG with Jameer Nelson (back spasms) unavailable on Wednesday, posting nine points, eight assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes vs. the visiting Knicks.

Harris made only 2-of-10 shots but one of those was a 3-pointer, and he turned the ball over just once in a season-high 40 minutes of action. Nelson is day-to-day so it's tough to rely on Harris as more than a late-round option, and 12-team owners can ignore J.J. Barea (10 points in 15 minutes). The Mavericks get a day off before traveling for a tough road game in Toronto on Friday.
Nov 26 - 11:22 PM

Devin Harris will start at point guard against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He and J.J. Barea are likely going to split the point guard minutes right down the middle, but Harris' steals and treys do make him a slightly more attractive option. Barea is certainly a capable option as well. Jameer Nelson isn't expected to miss much time, so Harris doesn't gain too much value.
Nov 26 - 7:21 PM

Devin Harris returned from his ankle injury and hit 2-of-7 shots for nine points and one assist.

His two hits were 3-pointers, but J.J. Barea was at again tonight with seven points and two assists in just 17 minutes. And once you add Raymond Felton to the mix next week, the Mavs guards not named Monta Ellis will be players to avoid at almost any cost.
Nov 22 - 11:35 PM

Devin Harris (sore leg) will play vs. the Rockets on Saturday, as expected.

Harris will return to the bench role he's played all season, averaging 8.6 points, 1.1 triples, 1.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.3 steals in just 23 minutes per game. Those numbers are attractive enough for use in many leagues, but he's less attractive given the strong play of J.J. Barea and the impending return of Raymond Felton from suspension.
Nov 22 - 6:36 PM

Devin Harris (leg) is expected to play in Houston on Saturday.

The Mavs' veteran guard has missed two games due to soreness in his lower right leg, but it shouldn't limit him as he resumes his backup role vs. the Rockets. J.J. Barea has been playing well in Harris' absence and Raymond Felton's return on Nov. 24 is another challenge to Harris' playing time, making him a dubious option in fantasy leagues.
Nov 22 - 9:45 AM

Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) is being listed as day-to-day, and he hasn’t yet been ruled out of Saturday’s game vs. Houston.

"He's been checked out pretty extensively the last couple of days. I'll leave it at that," said Rick Carlisle regarding Harris. "We don't think it's serious." While Harris is out his minutes will be distributed amongst J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis. Ellis will take on a larger portion of the scoring load, and Barea could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Nov 21 - 7:09 PM

Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis will see their minutes increased with Harris sidelined, and Barea could make for a nice low-budget buy in daily leagues. He's coming off a 14-point, six assist outing vs. the Wizards, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers.
Nov 21 - 12:29 PM

Devin Harris (ankle) won't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but is targeting a return on Friday.

We saw this one coming from a mile away, as Harris has been injury-prone throughout his career. He should be fine with a little rest, and he is hopeful he will play on Friday. J.J. Barea figures to be the main beneficiary of Harris' absence, while Jameer Nelson will likely see a slight uptick in minutes with the first unit. However, neither player is reliable enough for standard leagues in the long term.
