Devin Harris back tonight vs. Hornets

Devin Harris looked healthy and rested this morning, and will return to the lineup tonight against New Orleans at American Airlines Center. The stomach virus that knocked the starting point guard out of Wednesday’s loss at Toronto has subsided.

“Devin should be OK,” Avery Johnson said. “He went through shootaround. We definitely need his spend tonight to contain Paul the best that we can and also try to make him play some defense.”

Chris Paul scored 33 points in the Hornets’ 112-108 overtime win over Dallas back on Dec. 1, as New Orleans snapped a 21-game losing streak in the series.

“He’s really playing some outstanding basketball,” Johnson said. “He’s really dangerous right now. He’s making his shots. We know he’s a great leader, floor general, so he’s been giving a lot of teams difficulty right now. He’s playing at the top of his game.”
