A minor calf injury limited Dallas Mavericks guard Deron Williams at practice Tuesday, per the team website.
Rick Carlisle said he doesn't believe the issue is serious, so expect Williams to be back on the practice floor within the next few days.
The first-round pick out of Virginia has earned rave reviews from players and the coaching staff this offseason, and he could factor into the rotation from day one.
An athletic wing who can shoot the three, Anderson figures to see most of his time at shooting guard, but he could spent stints at small forward as well.
Harris played off the ball for most of last season as well, and with Deron Williams now taking over as the starting point guard, he'll see significant minutes at shooting guard.
Coach Rick Carlisle likes the veteran's outside shooting ability, and Harris is coming off of a season in which he shot 35.7 percent from three, including 59.6 percent on corner 3-point attempts.
Williams' tumultuous time with the Nets came to an end this offseason, as he was bought out in July and subsequently signed by the Mavericks. The veteran has certainly lost a step since his days as a perennial All-Star with the Jazz, but at 31 years old he'll look to prove he still has something left in the tank.
Starting fresh was the theme of Williams' conversation at Monday's media day, and he'll certainly have the opportunity to start anew with the new-look Mavericks.
Williams will open the season as the starting point guard and figures to see big minutes after averaging 13.0 points and 6.6 assists in 31.1 minutes per game for Brooklyn in 2014-15.
This news comes via coach Rick Carlisle, who sounded very non-committal when speaking about the statuses of Parsons and Wes Matthews, respectively.
Parsons will not be ready when training camp begins - he still hasn't been cleared for contact - but he hopes to ramp up his activity in hopes of working up to full speed by the end of October.
Interestingly, Carlisle also noted that Parsons may see some minutes at point guard this season for the new-look Mavs.
"I think we'll be able to play small and big," Carlisle said. "At some point, you might even see [Chandler] Parsons at point guard."
