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.
Feb 3 - 9:08 PM

Devin Harris (illness) missed shootaround on Friday, but could be available against the Blazers, per coach Rick Carlisle.

In other words, he's questionable for tonight in a game not in a back-to-back set. If Harris and Deron Williams (foot) can't play, Carlisle will have to be smarter than the average coach to figure out how to handle his PG situation outside of Yogi Ferrell. Seth Curry would definitely get a bump in opportunity while Ferrell should be in the mid 30s.
Feb 3 - 2:57 PM

Devin Harris played 20 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with four points, three rebounds, two assists and four steals.

The Mavs have always been careful with Harris' minutes on the back-to-back set, so only getting 20 minutes even when every other point guard on the rotation was hurt isn't a surprise. If the Mavs are still shorthanded, Harris could get more run against the Spurs on Sunday. He's obviously only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 26 - 11:02 PM

Devin Harris will come off the bench against the Thunder on Thursday.

This makes a lot more sense. We'll let you know how Harris does, but expect Jackson to get most of the minutes. Harris is only worth a look in deep leagues.
