Harris out against Hawks

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New Jersey Nets point guard Devin Harris missed New Jersey's loss to the Atlanta Hawks with an upper respiratory illness.

Nets interim coach Kiki Vandeweghe announced about 90 minutes before Tuesday night's tip-off that Harris would not play. Keyon Dooling replaced him in the starting lineup.

Harris started feeling sick on the Nets' road trip last week.

Vandeweghe hopes to have Harris back on Wednesday for a game in Philadelphia.
