Harris managed 19 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and four steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 109-104 loss to the Clippers.
Harris was expected to have an expanded offensive role with backcourt mate Jamal Murray (concussion) out of action, but he actually took his fewest amount of shot attempts over the last five games. The majority of the four-year pro's production also came in the first half, rendering him a virtual non-factor as the Nuggets let a nine-point halftime lead slip away. Despite the unbalanced performance, Harris has enjoyed a strong start to 2018, as he's now averaging 21.9 points, 3.0 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 steals across 35.1 minutes in eight January games.
Harris scored 25 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding four assists, four steals and a block in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 105-102 win over the Mavericks.
It's his third straight game with multiple steals and multiple three-pointers, and Harris is now averaging 22.3 points, 2.9 assists, 2.7 boards, 2.6 threes and 2.0 steals over his last seven. With Nikola Jokic commanding so much defensive attention, Harris should continue to see plenty of open looks when the big man kicks it out of a double team.
Harris posted 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, two rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs.
Harris boarded a private plane just hours before tip-off after tending to the birth of his child and arrived in time to draw the start, but it was all for naught despite his nice effort, which was good enough for the second=best scoring output on the team. Harris has been his usual efficient self for most of the season, as he's connected with almost 50 percent of his shots in 39 games making him one of the best shooting guards in the game in that category. He's also averaging almost six three-point attempts per game and connecting with 38.3 percent of them. The 22-year old is rarely going to fill up a huge stat line in multiple categories but he is a good source of steals and 3-pointers for roto leagues and is a decent second or third guard in weekly formats.
Harris (personal) will take the floor for Saturday's contest against the Spurs.
With Harris back in the rotation, Will Barton will seemingly head back to the bench and see a reduced role along with Malik Beasley. Over his past seven appearances, Harris has averaged 20.0 points, 3.1 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.9 steals across 36.7 minutes per game.
Harris will not play Friday against the Grizzlies due to personal reasons, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.
Harris is currently away from the team while attending to a family issue, but the Nuggets do not expect the starting shooting guard to miss more than a game or two. Denver is on the first night of a home/road back-to-back, however, so it's quite possible Harris could also miss Saturday's game against the Spurs in San Antonio. In his absence, expect Will Barton and Malik Beasley to pick up increased minutes.
