After recently returning to practice, Dallas Mavericks’ point guard Devin Harris may finally be ready to join his team on the court as early as next week. Harris injured his toe last season while playing for the Atlanta Hawks and hasn’t played in a game since. He tried to return earlier in the season in December, but suffered a setback.
Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle recently hinted that Harris will be available next week.
"“Devin is doing good. He’s getting better and better and he’s on the right path,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. “I’m encouraged. He’s moving well, and it’s been a process where we’ve had to do a pushback and kind of restart it. He’s done everything that he’s supposed to and he’s getting where he needs to get, so we’re getting closer but it won’t happen this week.”"
Harris is a 10-year NBA veteran who started his pro career with Dallas in 2004. He has averaged 12.8 point per game in his NBA career, playing with the Mavericks, New Jersey Nets, Utah Jazz and the Atlanta Hawks.
