Devin Harris is feeling healthy as the preseason begins.
"I’m here and I feel good. I rested the necessary injuries and took the necessary time off, coming back strong and ready to play," Harris said. Expected to spend more time off the ball, Harris will look to fill the "instant offense" role off the bench in Dallas. At best, he's an inconsistent roster-filler for teams in need of guard help.

Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris came into camp in great shape, and his toe injuries from last year appear to be behind him.

It's nice to hear that the toe issues that plagued Harris for much of the 2014-15 season are behind him, but fighting for reserve minutes with Raymond Felton isn't a great situation for fantasy value. He could have a bit larger of a role in Dallas if Wesley Matthews (Achilles) and Chandler Parsons (knee) aren't 100 percent healthy when the regular-season tips, but at best, he's nothing more than a low-end asset in extremely deep leagues.

Devin Harris is expected to play off the ball more, according to coach Rick Carlisle.

The coach also said he will try to keep Harris' minutes down. The Mavs really need some help on the wing, especially with Wes Matthews (Achilles) and Chandler Parsons (knee) coming off surgery. Harris had 40.6 percent of his shots come without a dribble last year, so it might be closer to 50 this season. If Wes and Parsons aren't ready, Harris is worth a look in deep leagues.

Devin Harris said that DeAndre Jordan should have been more mature during the free agency process.

"I think, if he could have done it a more mature way, it would have been a lot better off," Harris said of Jordan. Harris also added that the Mavericks recovered nicely and added some solid players, and he made it clear that Dallas has already moved on from the whole ordeal. As for Harris' fantasy value, he is expected to play off the ball a lot more next season, so he won't be a target outside of deeper leagues.

Devin Harris said that he expects to play off the ball more next season.

Deron Williams and Chandler Parsons will spend a lot of time facilitating the offense in Dallas next season, and J.J. Barea is going to need the ball in his hands a lot as well with the second unit. Harris played 22.2 minutes per game last season and posted averages of 8.8 points, 3.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.3 3-pointers, so his value will be limited to deeper leagues.
Aug 4 - 3:18 PM

Devin Harris said on Friday that his toe is back to 100 percent healthy.

Harris dealt with turf toe to close out the 2014-15 season, but he should be 100 percent healthy for next year. He's a key fixture in Dallas' rotations, but his averages of 8.8 points, 3.1 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.3 three-pointers per game make him a deep league asset at best.

Devin Harris said that his turf toe (left big toe) will only require rest in order to get better.

Harris' minutes decreased from 22.5 per game during the season to 18.5 in the playoffs, and it was obvious that he wasn't 100 percent. Harris is under contract for next season, and he should continue to be a key part of the Dallas rotation off the bench. He finished the regular season with averages of 8.8 points, 3.1 assists, 1.8 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.3 3-pointers.

Devin Harris played only 16 minutes off the Mavs' bench on Sunday, scoring four points on 2-of-5 shooting with one rebound, one steal and three personal fouls.

This isn't what we expected to see from Harris with Rajon Rondo out, but he took a backseat to the effective starting duo of Monta Ellis (31 points) and J.J. Barea (17 points, 13 assists). Considering how much success the Mavs had with that backcourt tonight, owners in daily leagues may want to shy away from Harris during Tuesday's potential elimination game.
Apr 27 - 12:19 AM

Devin Harris logged 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's Game 3 loss, scoring 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting with one rebound and two assists.

Harris has been dealing with a toe injury and had his foot stepped on tonight, but the Mavs desperately need him on the floor and he'll probably try to gut through another game on Sunday.
Apr 24 - 10:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Devin Harris (toe) will play in Friday's Game 3 against Houston.

The Mavericks will likely go with a three point guard rotation of Harris, J.J. Barea, and Raymond Felton. Barea is the likely starter for tonight's game, with Harris expected to slot into his standard sixth man role off the bench. Felton will more than likely lose some minutes with Harris back in the rotation, and he can't be viewed as a viable option in any format.
Apr 24 - 12:33 PM

Mavs' head coach Rick Carlisle said that he expects Devin Harris (toe) to play in Game 3 against the Rockets on Friday.

This is the third positive update we've had on Harris, and all signs are pointing towards him being available tonight. Harris should be able to get around 20 minutes of action tonight, which will likely come at the expense of Raymond Felton.
Apr 24 - 11:26 AM

Mavs' head coach Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris is making good progress with his toe injury, and signs are good for him being available for Game 3 against the Rockets on Friday.

Harris was able to go through a full practice on Thursday, and he said he expects to play in Game 3 on Friday. With Rajon Rondo (back) out of commission, Harris and J.J. Barea will run the show at point guard for Dallas, with Raymond Felton seeing some extended minutes off the bench.

Devin Harris (toe) was able to practice on Thursday.

While Harris was already listed as probable to play in Game 3 agains the Rockets, this is a good sign for his availability for Friday. Harris and J.J. Barea will see big minutes with Rajon Rondo (back/ego) out indefinitely and both should have a chance at decent fantasy production as the Mavericks' only solid point guard options.
Apr 23 - 2:01 PM

Devin Harris (toe) is probable to play against the Rockets in Game 3 on Friday.

Finally, the Mavs get some good news. Harris will have to really step up in the second unit because 40 percent of the starters are out indefinitely. As long as Harris stays healthy, he'll have a decent chance to score in the teens with some full stat lines. It's very possible he'll exceed the production of J.J. Barea and Richard Jefferson.
Apr 22 - 4:36 PM

Devin Harris said that his toe still hasn't improved, but he is "optimistic" that he will be able to play in Game 3 vs. Houston on Friday.

Harris played just nine minutes in Game 1 and was held out of Game 2, so it's pretty obvious that his toe injury is a real concern. The good news is that Harris has a couple days off to rest, so we will continue to provide updates as soon as we know more. If Harris continues to miss time, Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea will have even more responsibility off the bench, especially considering how disappointing Rajon Rondo has been.
