Harris managed to shoot 48.5 percent from the floor, 39.6 percent from deep and 82.7 percent from the charity strip this season on his way to 1,170 total points. The Michigan State product scored 20 or more points safely in 23 games while dropping a career high 36 points two times this year. Harris is signed through the next four season with the Nuggets and will make about $16.5 million during the 2018-19 season.
Harris does not have a minutes limit for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Timberwolves, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. According to coach Michael Malone, "If I have to play Gary Harris 30 minutes tonight, I'll play Gary Harris 30 minutes."
Ideally, coach Michael Malone would probably like to avoid playing Harris 30 minutes while coming off a knee injury, though if the team loses, they'll be out of the playoffs. While Harris shouldn't be expected to see more than the 18 minutes he played during his previous game, there is a justifiable reason to take a risk on him in DFS, especially since the game could remain close.
Harris (knee) compiled 12 points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound and two steals across 18 minutes in an 88-82 win over the Trail Blazers on Monday.
Harris was highly efficient in his return from an 11-game absence, providing a strong line relative to his modest allotment of minutes. Head coach Michael Malone opted to bring the fourth-year guard off the bench in his return so as not to disrupt the chemistry his starting five has demonstrated recently, but it remains to be seen if the same will hold true in Wednesday's win-and-in matchup against the Timberwolves. Irrespective of where he is on the depth chart for that contest, Harris would undoubtedly project for an appreciable bump in minutes now that he's gotten his first game out of the way.
Harris (knee) has been cleared to play in Monday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, but will have a restriction of 14-to-18 minutes off the bench, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Harris will be returning from an 11-game absence due to a sprained knee, so the Nuggets are going to ease him back into action. As a result, he'll see minutes in the teens at best and will come off the bench, so fantasy owners will likely want to temper expectations for the time being. Look for Will Barton to remain the starting shooting guard for now, though that could change if the Nuggets ultimately make the playoffs. The Nuggets' regular-season finale will be Wednesday against the Timberwolves and Harris' workload could increase for that contest if everything goes as planned Monday.
Harris (knee) is likely to play in Monday's game against the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Harris is still officially listed as questionable, but there appears to be some growing optimism surrounding the shooting guard's status after 11 missed games. The Nuggets should have an official update on Harris' status coming shortly, but for now, it's safe for the sharpshooter to be unofficially considered probable for Monday's contest.
