Harris remains upbeat

Devin Harris is off crutches, but his left foot remains in the protective boot. Avery Johnson said that Harris’ rehab is on schedule.

“Talked to him yesterday,” Johnson said. “He’s in good spirits. Hopefully get him out of the boot here soon. Working hard on the underwater treadmill and riding the bike.”

Has Johnson learned anything new about Harris since he’s been out?

“Already knew it,” Johnson said. “He’s playing at a high level before he got injured. Improvement every week, every day with him. We started off playing a certain way with him early in the season and we tweaked a few things and we finally got him playing the way we needed him to play.

“Unfortunately, he got injured. We know exactly what we need him to do. In the meantime we just have to hold ship until he gets back.”
