DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Mavericks sustained a pair of injury setbacks on Friday as rookie first-round pick Shane Larkin suffered a broken ankle during summer league practice and veteran signee Devin Harris is revealed to have a toe injury that unplugs him from his planned three-year $9-million deal.

The injury news regarding two members of the planned Dallas backcourt comes on the same day Dallas reached a deal with veteran Monta Ellis.

Harris could still return with a new deal following his recovery. Larkin’s injury will require surgery and a three-month rehab.

The Harris setback could conceivably make room for Dallas’ pursuit of center Samuel Dalembert.
