Devin Harris (leg) out vs. Wizards

Dallas Mavericks reserve guard Devin Harris will not play Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards due to soreness in his lower right leg.

Harris told reporters after the Mavs’ morning shootaround that he hopes to miss only one game.

Harris, who is averaging 8.6 points and 4.4 assists in 23.1 minutes off the bench, did not play in the second half of Monday’s win over the Charlotte Hornets because of the pain in his leg. It’s a condition he has been dealing with for about a week, but the Mavs don’t consider it a major concern.

J.J. Barea is likely to have his minutes increase in Harris’ absence. As the Mavs’ fourth guard, Barea has averaged 7.2 points and 4.1 assists in 15.9 minutes per game.

Guard Raymond Felton still must sit out three more games to satisfy the terms of his NBA suspension, which stemmed from his guilty plea to gun charges in New York last season.
