New, comments

Rick Carlisle expects the Mavs to have a full roster at his disposal against the Magic. Orlando, however, could be without several key players.

The Dallas Mavericks entered Wednesday with three players facing injury and illness concerns. Al-Farouq Aminu missed the last two games with a left shoulder injury he sustained against against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Devin Harris was forced to leave Monday's come-from-behind victory over the Thunder with a stomach illness. On Tuesday, it was reported that J.J. Barea woke up with a fever. Both Harris and Barea missed the team's film session and workout on Tuesday.

Wednesday morning, Harris must have been feeling better.

In fact, Rick Carlisle thinks they are all feeling better.

Whatever coach says goes, right? At the time of this writing, each are still listed as questionable for tonight's game.

As for the visiting Magic, they enter Wednesday's game with a slew of injuries already on the books. Evan Fournier has missed the last nine games under going hip surgery. Willie Green has been out the last four games with back spasms. And Devyn Marble continues to be sidelined with a detached retina.

Both Fournier and Green as listed as questionable against Dallas.

If dealing with these injuries wasn't enough for the Magic, they could be without Tobias Harris and Dewayne Dedmon as well.

Harris did not return to the game last night against the Rockets after spraining his ankle but Dedmon played the rest of the contest. They should both be considered questionable.
