With Harris being owed just $1.5 million, the decision to exercise the option was likely an easy one for the Nets, whose focus is clearly on keeping their cap sheet clean going forward. After two years as a minor bench piece for the Cavaliers, Harris appeared in a career-high 52 games for the Nets last season, averaging 8.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in just under 22 minutes per game. The former Virginia standout shot 42.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from three on 4.3 attempts per game.
Harris (shoulder) will be shut down for the remainder of the season, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
There was a growing belief that the Nets would shut Harris down, so this latest report doesn't come as much of a surprise. He hadn't played since Mar. 3 and the Nets have already been ruled out of playoff contention, so with six games left in the season, there was no reason to rush him back. Harris finishes the 2016-17 season playing in 52 games for the Nets, posting averages of 8.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.6 three-pointers across 21.9 minutes. He's got a non-guaranteed $1.5 million cap hit for next year, so it remains to be seen if Harris will be back with the Sixers.
Harris (shoulder) will remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup with the Hawks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The Nets haven't officially shut Harris down for the season, but with only six games left on the schedule, there appears to be a decent chance he doesn't see the floor again. That said, his next shot to play will be Tuesday against the Sixers, although he'd likely need to put in a full practice Monday in order to receive clearance for a return.
Harris (shoulder) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Magic, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
With Harris having been sidelined since March 3 with a concussion -- which he's since recovered from -- and the sprained left shoulder and the Nets offering no indication that he's made significant progress in his recovery, it's looking increasingly likely that he might be shut down for the season. Even if he's able to get back on the court before the campaign draws to a close, it's tough to envision the 25-year-old seeing more than 20 minutes in any game.
Harris (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pistons, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Harris will be missing his 15th straight game Thursday, as he's dealing with what appears to be a relatively serious shoulder sprain. His next opportunity to play will be Saturday against the Magic, but with the season winding down, there's no guarantees the Nets even clear him before its completion.
