Devin Harris came off the bench for seven points, three rebounds, one assist and two steals on 3-of-6 shooting in 17 minutes on Monday.
He was iffy with an illness but was able to go tonight. If Seth Curry's leg injury is going to keep him sidelined for a long time, Harris might be worth a look in deep leagues. But we're not sure he can stay healthy enough to be effective these days. He belongs on waivers for now. Oct 10 - 12:11 AM

Devin Harris has played more small forward at camp.

He was a point guard earlier in his career and has played more shooting guard lately, but now Dennis Smith Jr. looks like he's moving Harris up in the lineup again. Harris isn't a lock to be in the rotation while the Mavs are healthy.
Sep 29 - 3:46 PM

Devin Harris missed Thursday's practice with a low-grade fever.

He's day-to-day and is expected to return to practice on Friday. The Mavs have a lot of depth at both guard spots, so Harris is likely going to be limited to minutes in the teens this season. His best days are well behind him.
Sep 28 - 1:17 PM

Devin Harris said he understands he won't play much point guard for Dallas next season after they acquired Dennis Smith Jr.

"[Playing point guard] is something I feel I still can continue to do," Harris said. "But with the team and the structure we have, two and three are more the positions I have to play. I would like to play [some PG] a little bit more, but we’ll see what happens." With DSJ, J.J. Barea and Yogi Ferrell at PG, Harris' main competition on the wings will be Seth Curry and Wesley Matthews. Harris' $4.4 million team option is only guaranteed for $1.3 million, but it still sounds like he's in Dallas' plans for next season. He's not a fantasy target and is only looking at a handful of minutes.
Aug 24 - 11:42 AM

Devin Harris remains in Dallas' plans for next season.

He has a team option for $4.4 million with $1.3 of that guaranteed, so it won't cost the Mavs too much. Harris can play both guard spots, but he'll likely be in the background as the Mavs develop Dennis Smith Jr.
Jun 30 - 6:58 PM

Devin Harris said that he wants to continue playing in the NBA and that he is not retiring.

The Mavs have a $4.4 million team option on Harris for the 2017-18 season and have not yet informed him if they will exercise the option. The Mavs have Yogi Ferrell, Seth Curry and J.J. Barea under contract for next season, so they do have some depth at point guard. Harris, who turned 34 back in February, averaged 6.7 points and 2.1 assists while shooting a career-low 39.9 percent from the floor last season.
Apr 15 - 10:14 AM

Devin Harris came off the bench on Wednesday for six points, five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer, but he shot just 1-of-6 from the field in 22 minutes.

Harris went 3-of-4 from the line and the key here is that he played at all. He was a prime DNP candidate in the second of back-to-back games, so presumably he'll be active for the Mavs' final four games, beginning Friday vs. the Spurs.
Apr 6 - 1:23 AM

Devin Harris (rest) is available to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

We'll see if he actually plays here, but it's far from a lock. Leave Harris on the wire.
Apr 5 - 9:25 PM

Devin Harris (rest) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

If Harris is forced to take a rest day, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Yogi Ferrell, Nicolas Brussino and Dorian Finney-Smith. Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues, regardless of his playing status.
Apr 5 - 1:39 PM

Devin Harris has been ejected for picking up two technical fouls on Wednesday.

He was ejected with nine minutes left in the first half for arguing with the ref. Harris probably won't be suspended for this, finishing with two points in six minutes. We should see slightly more J.J. Barea and Dorian Finney-Smith tonight.
Mar 29 - 8:47 PM

Devin Harris scored 13 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and no turnovers in 29 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

He set a season high in minutes on Tuesday and was able to top that tonight. Harris may have the restrictions off him for now and he could turn in some stats with minutes in the upper 20s. Still, Harris' injury history and lower upside makes him hard to add in most leagues.
Feb 10 - 12:00 AM

Devin Harris played 27 minutes off the bench and made some big plays down the stretch, but the Mavericks weren't able to hold off the Blazers in a 114-113 loss.

Harris finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 3-of-8 shooting, and likely saw a boost in minutes when Seth Curry went down with a shoulder injury. Curry's injury is being called a stinger, as of now, but if it's more than that and he's going to miss time, Harris would likely see a big boost in minutes and usage. He is coming off an illness, but looked fine tonight, so just keep an eye on Curry's status if you're in a deeper league.
Feb 7 - 11:45 PM

Devin Harris (illness) returned from a one-game illness to finish Monday's road loss with zero points and five assists in 17 minutes of action.

Harris missed all four of his field goal attempts tonight. The veteran's health is important to the Mavs' bench rotation, especially while Deron Williams (toe) and J.J. Barea (calf) are out of commission, but he's not a fantasy option in standard leagues. The biggest hurdle is the fact that he's averaging 16.1 minutes this season, the lowest since his rookie year in 2004-05.
Feb 7 - 12:05 AM

Devin Harris (illness) practiced on Sunday and is expected to return to action Monday vs. the Nuggets.

Harris sat out Friday's win over Portland with the illness, but it's looking like it'll just be a one-game absence. Deron Williams (toe) could also be getting back to the court on Monday night, so Harris' minutes might only be in the teens. He's not a realistic target in most settings.
Feb 5 - 4:21 PM

Devin Harris (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Blazers.

With Deron Williams' (toe) status still up in the air, we should see a lot of Seth Curry and Yogi Ferrell tonight. Even with J.J. Barea (calf) out for a while, Harris hasn't been able to make an impact in most fantasy leagues.
