Mavericks vs. Wizards injury update: Devin Harris out, Bradley Beal will make season debut

As Dallas loses a guard, Washington gains one.

After missing the second half of Monday's win against the Hornets, Devin Harris will not play in tonight's game against the Wizards.

Some more info.

Meanwhile, the Wizards are adding a guard -- Bradley Beal, who has been out all year after injuring his wrist this preseason.

The timing is a little unfortunate for the Mavericks. Devin Harris would likely have got a fair share of minutes on Bradley Beal and John Wall as Dallas' best-defending guard, and with Raymond Felton suspended for three more games, the Mavericks only have a 12-man active roster. Richard Jefferson will likely be reactivated after he was a 'healthy scratch' on Monday as one of Dallas' two inactives (Ricky Ledo).

However, the Mavericks still have plenty of guard depth and can run the offense through Monta Ellis more than usual. This game gives Dallas an opportunity for only their second win against a 2013-14 playoff team.
