Mavericks injury update: Chandler Parsons and Devin Harris questionable for Game 2

The Dallas Mavericks enter a must-win situation in Game 2 tomorrow night against the Houston Rockets, and if the health of Chandler Parsons and Devin Harris don't improve, they may need to play without them.

Parsons (knee) and Harris (left turf toe) both missed Monday's practice and are listed as questionable for tomorrow's game at the Toyota Center, per ESPN Dallas' Tim MacMahon, as the Mavs look to even the series at 1-1 before heading back to Dallas for Game 3.

After missing the last six games of the regular season due to a right knee injury, Parsons aggravated the injury midway through the second quarter on Saturday after finishing a slam dunk with 7:26 left in the half. He later returned near the end of the half, but finished the game shooting 5-of-15 and scoring 10 points.

MacMahon also said that Parsons' knee didn't swell up again, but it is still really sore, and the former Rocket could be a game-time decision.

Harris' toe problems continued after playing only 10 minutes in Game 1. He sat out Dallas' season finale against the Portland TrailBlazers after playing only five minutes two days prior against the Utah Jazz before leaving the game with said toe injury.

If Parsons, somehow, doesn't go tomorrow, it could more than likely be Richard Jefferson getting the start at small forward. If Harris can't go, the Mavs might go the route of giving Raymond Felton some minutes behind J.J. Barea and Rajon Rondo.
