Dwain Price: Rick Carlisle on the return of G Devin Harris (toe): “He gets closer all the time. There’s a chance he could play this week some time.’’
Mavericks guard Devin Harris will be in a walking boot for three weeks, coach Rick Carlisle said Wednesday at the team’s shootaround. Harris sprained his right big toe — not the left one, which has been surgically repaired twice — in the preseason finale last week. “It’s a significant sprain,” Carlisle said. “He will likely be in a boot for three weeks and be evaluated after that. We’re going to be without him for a while. So we’ll need the other guys to step up. But we feel like he’s got a chance to come out of this OK.”
Tim MacMahon: Devin Harris is “very doubtful” for the season opener due to a foot injury. Seth Curry will play a significant role for the Mavs to start the season.
Mavericks guard Devin Harris has had his left big toe and left thumb surgically repaired. Harris had both surgeries Tuesday in New York. They were performed by different doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Another big reason the Magic can be optimistic about turning the corner is the evolution of fourth-year forward Aaron Gordon, who is averaging career highs in points (17.5) and rebounds (8.1). “I think what he’s done is he’s finding a rhythm to his game, a pace to his game,” new Magic GM John Hammond said. “I think he’s just scratching the surface, too. Joe Dumars always used to say this: ‘Every offseason you should come back with one little part of your game better. Whatever it is. Just one thing.'”
The improvement comes as Gordon is poised to become a restricted free agent this summer, but Hammond sounds convinced that both Gordon and the Magic will be able to come to terms on a long-term contract keeping him in Orlando. “You look at a guy like that and say, ‘He’s one of those guys as you move forward with, that you got to have,'” Hammond said. “And we feel that way.”
