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.

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.

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.

Devin Harris (ankle) has been listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Harris was able to travel with the team to Washington, D.C., so it would seem that he escaped serious injury after going down during Monday's win over the Hornets. We'll update his status after Wednesday's shootaround, but J.J. Barea would be in line for some extra minutes off the bench if Harris is unable to play.

Devin Harris (ankle) is nursing a minor ankle injury, but it wasn't deemed serious enough to have him fly back to Dallas.

Harris left Monday's win over the Hornets after playing just 10 minutes, but was still able to travel with the team to Washington, D.C. "He’s got a little ankle thing that we’re trying to take care of," Carlisle said. "Beyond that I can’t comment because I’m not a doctor." J.J. Barea would pick up more minutes off the bench if Harris is unable to play against the Wizards on Wednesday, but he's not worth an add in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:09 AM

Devin Harris is dealing with lower-leg soreness on Monday and will not return.

He's been able to avoid the injury bug for much of the season, but it was only a matter of time. Harris has been very good off the bench and it's unclear how much time he'll need to recover. With Harris out, J.J. Brea will likely help more off the bench.
Nov 17 - 8:27 PM

Devin Harris hit 2-of-7 shots off the bench on Thursday and had seven points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in an ugly loss to the Blazers.

Starter Jameer Nelson had six points, four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes as a starter, and this whole timeshare thing will become more confusing when Raymond Felton possibly returns next week. Ignore all of them if you can, as this is going to be a three-headed fantasy nightmare.
Nov 7 - 1:34 AM

Devin Harris played 30 minutes off the bench against the Celtics on Monday with 12 points, two rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He played 27 minutes per game before tonight and has scored at least 12 in every game to go with multiple treys. Harris also has multiple treys in every game, has an average of 1.3 steals and is second on the team in assists per game. He's worth a look as a low-upside guy in standard leagues.
Nov 4 - 1:18 AM

Devin Harris played 29 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-12 FGs with two 3-pointers, five assists and two steals.

Harris easily led the Mavs' reserves in playing time and his ability to play either PG or SG is a useful tool for coach Rick Carlisle. Tonight's efficient game is a bit misleading and Harris is a low-end fantasy option in typical leagues. Keep in mind that the eventual return of Raymond Felton (ankle) will do him no favors.
Oct 28 - 11:04 PM

Mavs veteran Devin Harris chipped in seven points, seven assists and five steals in just 20 minutes off the bench on Friday.

He made one 3-pointer and the five steals were one shy of his career-high, though that says as much about Orlando's young team than Harris' sticky hands. Jameer Nelson (four points, seven assists) is locked into the starting PG job and Raymond Felton (ankle) will vie for minutes once he's healthy, which reduces Harris to a deep-league fantasy option.
Oct 24 - 9:34 PM

Devin Harris is resting against the Pacers on Saturday.

He is healthy and has played well so far this preseason. Harris is a sneaky pickup in deeper leagues because he should have a high usage rate to go with his steals and treys.
Oct 18 - 6:30 PM

Devin Harris said he's expecting a similar role off the bench with the Mavericks this season.

He came off the bench last year and had a few great stretches. The Mavericks had a 115.8 offensive rating while Harris was on the floor last season, which ranks higher than the Clippers' top-ranked 109.4. He'll have a chance to produce low-end value in standard leagues off the bench.
