Dallas Mavericks: Devin Harris Reports Successful Surgery
Dallas Mavericks Guard, Devin Harris, had successful offseason surgery yesterday morning on both his thumb and toe.
It is no secret that the Dallas Mavericks got banged up this year across the board. Injuries to just about every player on the roster really held this team back from its potential, causing a number of losses that may have made a difference in the season.
One of these injuries that occurred this season was not mentioned much but turned out to be fair severe. Devin Harris missed a total of 18 games this season with a variety of injuries, most notably an injury to both his thumb and toe.
After the season was complete, Harris elected to have surgery on both digits at the same time with hopes of making a speedy return to the court. Devin tweeted just yesterday that the surgery was a success.
Although Harris was not a pivotal part of the offense this year for the Mavericks, it is still good to hear that the surgery went well and he expects a full recovery. Harris was by no means the player we hoped to see coming off the bench for Dallas but, with all the questions and concerns floating around different players and contracts in the organization, he may be due for a big year.
The Mavericks guard group of Deron Williams, Wesley Matthews, Raymond Felton, J.J. Barea, Justin Anderson, and Harris is full of potential, both proven and unproven, so it really comes down to who wants it more and who Carlisle trusts when the games begin again later this year.

Harris is on contract through 2018 and will be making an average of just over $4 million each year. If we can get the level of production we foresaw when signing that contract, he will be well worth the money he is earning. Dallas Mavericks fans all over wish Harris the best and a speedy recovery.
