Harris tallied 15 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes Thursday during a 104-95 loss to New Orleans.
Harris turned in his best performance since returning from a hip injury that sidelined him two games. He appears to be Brooklyn's starter for now at shooting guard, although the rotation figures to change when Jeremy Lin (hamstring) returns. Lin isn't expected to see the court for at least another week, however, so if anyone needs an immediate stopgap at the guard or at the wing, Harris is worth keeping an eye on.
Harris started and scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt) while adding two rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 26 minutes during Thursday's 121-109 loss to the Pacers.
Harris entered the game averaging only 23.4 minutes, and predictably saw that figure increase as he entered the starting lineup. He hasn't done much to warrant fantasy excitement so far this season, however the move to the starting lineup certainly provides a boost to his value. He could be worth a flier, especially in deeper leagues, as this situation remains somewhat unsettled.
Harris will start at shooting guard for Thursday's game against the Pacers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Harris was pushed into the starting lineup for just the second time of his career at the end of December, but suffered a hip injury shortly thereafter and ended up remaining sidelined for two games. He came off the bench Monday in his return, but will now get another opportunity with the top unit, this time replacing Sean Kilpatrick at shooting guard. Harris should be able to surpass his season average of 23.4 minutes while running with the starters.
Harris (hip) is available to play in Monday's matchup against the Jazz, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Harris has been dealing with a hip pointer, and has missed the previous two games as a result. He was originally listed as questionable for Monday's contest, but appears to have passed his pregame tests. He has averaged 23.5 minutes per game this season, but could potentially see the number decrease, as Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson have been taking on more responsibilities lately.
Harris (hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Harris has already missed two games with the hip pointer and could be in jeopardy of sitting out another contest if he fails to show improvement in the hours leading up to game time Monday. The third-year player is averaging 23.5 minutes per game on the season, but upon returning, he could see that number fall with Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson taking on more responsibilities off the bench of late.
