Harris Questionable vs. Spurs

Monday, March 23

"Per Rick Carlisle, Devin Harris (illness) is questionable Tuesday vs. the Spurs," per Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com.

Harris logged 22 minutes in a win over the Orlando Magic and 21 minutes in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies last week, but once again was forced out of action on March 22 against the Phoenix Suns due to illness, per Sneed.

He registered two assists in nine minutes before exiting. 

On March 16, Sneed first revealed that Harris exited against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to illness. The 32-year-old point guard played eight minutes before leaving.

While not a vital member of the Mavericks' rotation—especially after the Rajon Rondo trade—he provides nice depth off the bench. Having appearing in more than 700 regular-season and 55 playoff games, Harris' experience can be invaluable.
