Devin Harris watched the first half of tonight's game against the Grizzlies from the American Airlines Center where he was receiving treatment for the bone bruise on his left foot that will keep him out likely up until the All-Star break in mid-February.
Harris said the MRI, which revealed the bone bruise Monday, was actually good news because as of Sunday night, the medical staff believed it was worse that it turned out to be.
Harris said he hopes to be back in the lineup in three weeks. He said he got over the disappointment of getting hurt and realizing he'd miss some big games coming up just as he and the team were on a roll.
"It happens," said Harris has he made his way from the AAC to his home to watch the second half. "It's probably the worst time, I was playing well, but you have to treat it as one of those things that happens."
Harris' left foot will remain in a boot for about a week to 10 days and he'll hold onto the crutches for the next two or three days. He's not sure if he'll join the team for the Boston-Detroit-Orlando segment of the trip.
But, the thought of being sedentary for the next few weeks isn't a pleasant one.
"I'm not a big fan of sitting and watching," Harris said.
