Harris provided 19 points (9-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four assists and three rebounds across 34 minutes in Friday's 134-133 loss to the Trail Blazers. Harris looked like his old self after missing a few games with a groin injury. Although the Nets sent out guys like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Garrett Temple to shore up the backcourt, Harris should hold on to the starting job once the playoffs commence. The former Three-Point Shootout champ can be deadly from long range when he's dialed in, and they'll need his skills to be on point against the heavily-favored Raptors in the first round.
Harris will be available for Thursday's game against Portland, Greg Logan of Newsday reports. Harris was held out of Tuesday's game against Orlando, but he'll be back in action Thursday as the Nets close out seeding play.

Harris totaled 25 points (10-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt), two rebounds and an assist in 27 minutes of Sunday's 129-120 win over the Clippers. Harris had a torrid first quarter, making all six of his shots, including four from downtown. The 28-year-old ended up scoring all but two of his points in the first half before going quiet after the break. He is apparently past the groin issue that had him listed as doubtful for the contest just a day earlier.
Harris (groin) will be available for Sunday's game against the Clippers, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
