If a West Coast back-to-back against two of the best teams in the league wasn't hard enough, the Dallas Mavericks enter Friday night's game against the Golden State Warriors dealing with a number of injuries.
Barea (left thumb strain) is questionable, Harris (right hand injury) is doubtful & Parsons (left ankle injury) is out vs. Warriors.— Earl K. Sneed (@EarlKSneed) March 6, 2015
We knew Chandler Parsons wasn't going to play. He is aiming to return Sunday against the Lakers. As for J.J. Barea and Devin Harris, these injury reports are new. Dallas should hope that at least one of them can play tonight. If not, that just leaves Raymond Felton as Rajon Rondo's backup at point.
On paper, this game looks like a schedule loss. The Warriors have the second best record in the league. If the Mavs were to have a modicum of hope for pulling out a victory, they needed to be at full strength.
Hope you guys love watching Rondo because you're probably going to see a lot of him tonight.
