Harris delivered 22 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals over38 minutes in Wednesday's 112-99 loss to the Timberwolves. While the Nuggets didn't exactly look like the team that destroyed the Warriors on Monday, there are some bright spots to be noted. Gary Harris and Jameer Nelson are proving to be a great backcourt tandem for the team, and Emmanuel Mudiay (back) can't be pleased. Harris is in the midst of a six-game stretch where he's averaging 17.2 points per game and an impressive 48.6 percent from beyond the arc. Although he missed almost two months due to injury, it appears that his spot in the starting lineup is his to lose. Until proven otherwise, consider Harris a safe start in all formats.
Harris (hamstring) will start at shooting guard for Monday's game against the Warriors, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Harris hasn't missed any time because of the hamstring injury and came into Monday with a probable designation, so there was never really any question regarding whether or not he'd play. Consider he's logged 29 minutes or more in each of his last four games, Harris should be in line for a full workload again Monday, so fantasy owners should feel confident activating him. The Nuggets only have nine active players Monday, which should translate to a pretty big minutes load.
Harris is probable for Monday's matchup against the Warriors with right hamstring soreness, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. This is the first news of Harris being injured, though it appears to be just soreness, so he'll likely play in Monday's contest. Harris has been hot from behind the arc over the last four outings, averaging 16.3 points on 45.8 percent from distance. If he happens to miss Monday's game, Will Barton and Jamal Murray would likely pick up the majority of his minutes at the shooting guard slot.
Harris went for 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Saturday's 123-112 win over the Suns. The 22-year-old is in the midst of a modest but positive offensive stretch, averaging 13.8 points over the last four games. However, Harris has shot 40 percent or less in three of those contests, so he continues to struggle to find consistency overall. A stretch of extended health could certainly help in this regard, as Harris' play has likely been at least partly affected by the myriad of injuries he's suffered this season.
Harris (ankle) will play in Tuesday's matchup against the Jazz, T.J. McBride fo BSNDenver.com reports. Harris was listed as probable for the contest, so this news is unsurprising. He missed three games due to a sprained ankle, but returned with an impressive performance against the Timberwolves Sunday. He notched 22 points, six rebounds, three assists, and one steal across 35 minutes. Thus, he figures to be in line for another full workload Tuesday.
