Still bothered by an upper respiratory infection, Devin Harris skipped shootaround Tuesday morning. But he'll try to play Tuesday night against the Hawks. Meanwhile, Atlanta rookie Jeff Teague will get his first career start at point guard, with Mike Bibby moving to the two in place of the injured Joe Johnson. The Hawks have lost their last five games at the Izod Center.
Meanwhile, Keyon Dooling says he wants to be back in New Jersey next season. He's under contract for $3.6 million, but the Nets have the option to buy him out for $500,000 before June 30. "If it was my option, I'd put it in right now and sign up," Dooling said.
