Harris (ankle) will sit out Thursday's game against the Spurs, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
After spraining his right ankle on Monday against the Magic, Harris was subsequently held out of Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers. Despite the added time off, Harris is still dealing with some lingering discomfort and considering he was ruled out a day in advance, there's a chance Harris ends up missing even more time following Thursday's contest. Look for Will Barton to pick up another start at shooting guard, after exploding for 26 points, four rebounds and eight assists over 35 minutes on Tuesday in relief.
Harris (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Harris suffered a sprained right ankle on Monday against the Magic and was given a doubtful designation earlier Tuesday, so this was the expected course of action. With Harris out, Will Barton (illness) is expected to draw the start at shooting guard, while Jamal Murray could be slated for a much bigger role as well in the backcourt. Harris will go through additional recovery over the next few days with the hope of being cleared ahead of Thursday's game against the Spurs.
Harris (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Lakers, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Harris sprained his right ankle in the first quarter of Monday's win over the Magic and was unable to return, so it's not surprising that the Nuggets aren't anticipating that he'll be available for the second half of the back-to-back set. Though Harris isn't dealing with any structural damage to the ankle, the injury could be significant enough to force him out for multiple games while he waits for swelling to subside. If that's the case, Will Barton, who previously started at shooting guard when Harris missed time with groin and ankle injuries, would likely be appointed to the starting five once again and take on increased minutes.
Harris (ankle) is expected to be out for Tuesday's tilt against the Lakers, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.
After missing 16 games from Nov. 13 to Dec 12, Harris returned to provide 13.9 points on 48.1 percent shooting, 3.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.1 steals across 30.2 minutes per game in the following 12 contests. Will Barton, who's averaged 10.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists across 22.0 minutes per game over the past five matchups, will likely get the start in Harris' place. Jamal Murray may also see additional workload.
Harris departed Monday's game against the Magic with a sprained right ankle and will not return, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Harris left the game early in the first quarter, playing just three minutes and going 0-of-1 from the field prior to exiting. X-Rays on the ankle returned negative, but the Nuggets will still hold him out for the rest of the contest due to swelling and discomfort. The severity of the sprain, itself, is unknown at this time, but Harris' availability for Tuesday's game against the Lakers looks to be very much in jeopardy.
