Devin Harris missed Monday’s game against the Pacers with a left foot injury. Harris was hurt in the third quarter of Sunday’s victory over the Bucks and was unable to return after scoring 16 points. It marked the 14th game Harris missed this season with foot problems that have plagued him most of the season’s second half. His status for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors in undetermined. “He is still a little sore,” coach Larry Drew said. “We’ll see how he is (Tuesday).” The injury to Harris means the Hawks are likely to sign reserve guard Shelvin Mack for the remainder of the season. Mack’s second and final 10-day contract expires Tuesday. “The reason we brought him in was for this type situation,” Drew said. “When we did sign him, Jeff (Teague) had tweaked his ankle. We knew we would need that third point guard instantly. After Devin went down (Sunday) night, I think Mack came in and did a phenomenal job for us.” In eight games, Mack has averaged 1.6 points and 0.9 assists. Ivan Johnson (back spasms) was available Monday. He had missed practice Saturday and Sunday’s game. The Pacers played without four starters. Danny Granger (sore left knee), David West (lower back strain), Lance Stephenson (hip flexor) and George Hill (groin) were all out. In Sunday’s win over the Bucks, Al Horford had 24 points (10-of-16 shooting), seven rebounds, six assists and no turnovers. Josh Smith had 23 points (9 of 17), nine rebounds, four assists and no turnovers.
