Devin Harris, Anthony Morrow cleared for contact, will travel to Minnesota

Kevin C. Cox

Devin Harris and Anthony Morrow took a step closer to getting back on the court as they were cleared for contact on Monday and will travel with the club to Minnesota.

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.
