Parsons, Harris out for regular-season finale

DALLAS -- Two key members of the Dallas Mavericks rotation will miss Wednesday's regular-season finale because of injuries.

Small forward Chandler Parsons will miss his sixth consecutive game with soreness in his right knee.

Reserve guard Devin Harris will sit out because of a jammed big left toe suffered in Monday's loss to the Utah Jazz.

The Mavs' game against the Portland Trail Blazers will not impact playoff seeding, as the Mavs will be the seventh seed and the Blazers the fourth seed. However, Parsons and Harris both hoped to be able to play in the game.

Parsons, in particular, wanted a tuneup game before the playoffs. The original plan was for him to play in the final two games of the regular season, but that changed after he suffered a setback during an intense workout Sunday in Los Angeles.
