Harrison collected 16 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, two steals and one rebound in 30 minutes during Monday's 107-82 loss to Miami.
Harrison started at point guard, finishing with a season-high 16 points on only six shots. He has clearly usurped Mario Chalmers as the fill-in point guard, having played at least 26 minutes per game in each of his last four starts. The scoring was something that we will not see often, but he has averaged 1.8 steals over his last four outings. He should continue to see solid minutes until Mike Conley (Achilles) returns, but is still not worth owning in most leagues.
Harrison will start Friday's game against the Raptors.
The Grizzlies will switch up their lineup as they look to turn things around, swapping Ben McLemore out of the starting five in favor of Harrison. He's averaging 5.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 16.4 minutes per game so far this season, though those averages sit at 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists across 19.8 minutes per game over his last six contests.
Harrison will come off the bench Saturday against the Clippers.
With the team on a two-game skid, coach David Fizdale will swap out Harrison for rookie Dillon Brooks, who played a season-high 38 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Orlando. While Harrison is a strong perimeter defender, he's shooting just 34.9 percent from the field and 15.8 percent (3-19) from three on the season.
Harrison had nine points (4-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 loss to the Magic.
Despite beginning the campaign as the starting shooting guard, Harrison has mostly been a non-factor, and this was just the fourth time in eight games that he earned 20 minutes or more. With Wayne Selden (quad) and Ben McLemore (foot) both nearing their returns, Harrison's limited value is about to dip even lower.
Harrison will draw the start at shooting guard for the team's opening night matchup Wednesday against the Pelicans, Peter Edmiston of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Harrison played 20.5 minutes per game last season, posting 5.9 points and 2.8 assists while shooting 32.5 percent from the field. The decision to start him is a bit odd considering his poor play last year, but the team is lacking depth at shooting guard while Ben McLemore (foot) remains sidelined. That said, fantasy owners can probably opt for a wait-and-see approach when it comes to considering picking Harrison up off the waiver wire.
