Harris (foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Harris was given a probable designation earlier Wednesday, but after further thought, the Nuggets are going to try and avoid any further aggravations in a game that's essentially meaningless. With a slew of other players sidelined, including Wilson Chandler, Will Barton and Jameer Nelson, look for Malik Beasley and Mike Miller to see a ton of minutes at shooting guard Wednesday.
Harris has been diagnosed with a left foot contusion and is probable for Wednesday's season finale against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
It's unclear when Harris suffered the injury, though it's possible that it occurred during Tuesday's game against the Mavericks. While the Nuggets have been eliminated from postseason contention and have little reason to risk aggravating an injury, the team seems to feel that it's a minor injury which won't worsen if 22-year-old Harris goes through the contest. If for some reason he ends up being held out, expect a healthy dose of Jamal Murray and Malik Beasley at the shooting guard slot.
Harris produced 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and a steal over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-104 loss to the Rockets.
Harris' usage has stayed consistent with Will Barton (foot) still sidelined, and Wilson Chandler's return from injury has only resulted in a crowded rotation at the 3 spot. He's really shined since the All-Star break, besting his season averages with 34.4 minutes, 17.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 22 contests. The Nuggets are on the outside looking in, stuck in ninth place with only a week remaining, so Harris needs to continue his excellent play in the final four contests. He comes at a reasonable price in DFS formats and should see a lot of usage as the regular season comes to a close.
Harris scored 23 points (10-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 134-131 win over the Pelicans.
Harris barely missed a shot Tuesday, on his was to his second 20-point outing in three games. Harris' offense turned a corner after the All-Star break. Since, he's been averaging 17.2 points and 2.2 threes while shooting 54.3 percent from the field, 42.6 from behind the arc, and 85.1 from the free-throw line. All of those stats are dramatic improvements over his pre-All-Star break numbers, and they have driven up Harris' fantasy value.
Harris scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3 Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with four assists and three rebounds in Wednesday's 126-113 win over the Cavaliers.
Gary Harris continued his excellent play on Wednesday after notching a career-high 28 points on Monday against the Rockets. Across 11 contests in March, Harris has averaged 16.9 points, 3.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals all of which exceed his seasonal averages with the exception of rebounds. Harris will try to keep his hot streak going against the Pacers on Friday.
