It seems like the health of the Mavericks' backup point guards has been an issue for some time now. Once again, both J.J. Barea and Devin Harris find themselves on the injury report before the Mavs host the Spurs Tuesday night.
Barea is officially listed as out. This will be the second game in a row in which a sprained left ankle has sidelined Dallas' diminutive point guard.
As for Harris, he is listed as questionable for tonight's game. Harris did, however, participate in Tuesday's shootaround. He has been dealing with a stomach illness since leaving last Monday's game against the Thunder.
San Antonio also enters tonight's contest with a few injuries of note. Both Aron Baynes and Manu Ginobili have spent time riding the pine recently.
Ginobili missed the Spurs last four games with a right ankle injury. He is expected to play against the Mavs tonight. Of course he is.
Baynes sprained his right ankle in Sunday's blow-out win against the Hawks. He did not return to the game and is listed as questionable against Dallas.
