Mavs Nursing Injuries For Game 2
The Dallas Mavericks are listing forward Chandler Parsons and guard Devin Harris at "questionable'' for Tuesday's Game 2 in Houston after they sat out the team’s practice on Monday inside the AAC.
“They did not do anything today on the court,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “They did lifting and some rehab work. They’re listed as questionable and see where we are tomorrow.”
The Mavs are down 0-1 in this first-round series and obviously would like to have all hands on deck for Tuesday. But Carlisle suggests a decision about his two players' availability might not come until just before tip-off.
"We may be able to update you in the morning, we may not,'' said the as-always-coy Carlisle.
Parsons missed the Mavs’ final six regular-season games with a balky right knee. He played 37 minutes in Game 1 but left for a moment in the second quarter for treatment on the knee. Parsons, the former Rocket who was booed every time he touched the ball, was not especially effective on Saturday, when among his issues was on 0-of-4 effort from the arc.
“I thought he played well,'' Rick said, "considering that he hadn’t played in six games.''
Harris sustained a "turf toe'' injury in Dallas' final regular-season game and its bothered him since. He exited Saturday’s game in the first half and did not return.
The Mavs returned to Dallas after Saturday's game, did not practice on Sunday, and departed for Houston on Monday after the AAC workout.
