Devin Harris and Anthony Morrow will travel with the Atlanta Hawks to Minnesota and both could return to action during the two-game trip. Both players were cleared for contact on Monday and Larry Drew told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he would see how both players responded to Monday's workout before determining their status for Tuesday's game.
Harris has missed the last 10 games with a foot injury. Lou Williams has assumed the backup point guard responsibilities but getting Harris back will be a shot in the arm for the rotation and give Drew another option at the point. Morrow has missed the last five games with a hip injury that he suffered against the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 28.
The absence of Harris and Morrow provided an opportunity for playing time for first-round pick John Jenkins who saw consistent minutes for the first time this season. Drew vowed to find a way to get Jenkins more minutes even after Harris and Morrow return but how he goes about that remains to be seen.
Atlanta is on a two-game losing streak and the additions of Harris and Morrow should provide a shot in the arm for the club.
