There shouldn't be any real issue, since the slightly wider chain will certainly run on the rings. There might (that's might as in maybe, but probably not) be some reduction in available angle to smaller cassette sprockets from the inner ring. That means you might not be able to ride crossed over 39/11 or 12. That shouldn't be an issue since you probably use these combinations anyway.
