Tobias Harris has a forgettable game on Sunday, going 2-of-10 from the field to finish with eight points, four rebounds and one block in 34 minutes.

Harris earned another start and fantasy owners can give him a pass for tonight's dud since he came in hot, shooting 27-of-40 from the field (67.5 percent) in his previous five games. He's just under 50 percent in March and should bounce back vs. the Heat in Miami on Tuesday.
Mar 19 - 7:27 PM

Tobias Harris scored 14 points in an 87-75 loss to the Raptors on Friday, adding seven rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he will be sticking with Harris in the starting lineup. Based on his previous starts, Harris actually had a higher scoring average off the bench with 16.6 points per game compared to 16.2 as a starter. Harris should continue to post mid-round value going forward and his owners shouldn't adjust their expectations too much with the starting news.
Mar 17 - 10:48 PM

Tobias Harris will start Friday night vs. Toronto and coach Stan Van Gundy said Harris will remain in the starting lineup for final 14 games of the season.

This likely won't have a major impact on Harris' fantasy value, as he is actually averaging slightly more points and rebounds as a reserve this season, despite playing more minutes as a starter (33.2 vs. 28.9). However, now that his role has been solidified, Harris will be able to settle in as a starter, and his shooting percentages should increase. Jon Leuer will come off the bench going forward.
Mar 17 - 11:50 AM

Tobias Harris played 30 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with 12 points, four boards, two assists and one steal, while making 5-of-8 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs.

Stan Van Gundy started Jon Leuer over Harris because he thought Utah would start Boris Diaw, but instead they went small with Joe Johnson at PF tonight. Harris should resume starting, in other words, but it doesn't matter much for his fantasy value. He's playing just 28.8 minutes as a reserve this season, but is averaging more points (16.8), 3-pointers (1.3) and rebounds (5.5).
Mar 16 - 12:36 AM

Tobias Harris will come off the bench on Wednesday, with Jon Leuer taking his spot in the starting lineup.

The Jazz are starting Joe Johnson at PF tonight so it's an interesting cross-match both ways. Harris should maintain a steady role as the team's sixth-man, so this doesn't have a big impact on his value.
Mar 15 - 7:15 PM

Tobias Harris was back in the starting lineup on Tuesday, despite a sore knee, and hit 6-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's ugly loss to the Cavaliers.

Harris' status was never in doubt for this one and it's nice to see him back in the starting lineup over Jon Leuer. Harris had a season-high 28 points on Saturday and likely would have had a better line had the Cavs not jumped on the Pistons by a score of 44-26 in the first quarter of tonight's game.
Mar 14 - 9:59 PM

Stan Van Gundy said that Tobias Harris (knee) is "good to go" for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Harris was withheld from competing during Monday's practice as a precaution, but he was never expected to miss today's game. Go ahead and get him active.
Mar 14 - 5:46 PM

Tobias Harris (knee) did not practice Monday and is expected to play on Tuesday in Cleveland.

It was only a precaution from Harris' minor injury last week, which caused him to be probable for Saturday. Of course, Harris torched the Knicks with a season-high 28 points, so he's ready to roll. He's looked awesome as a starter and has four games this week, so his owners should have high expectations this week.
Mar 13 - 1:46 PM

Tobias Harris scored a season-high 28 points during a 112-92 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks, no turnovers and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Long Island, NY native crushed the Knicks and had a monster first half with 23 points to help put this game out of reach. Coach Stan Van Gundy said he used Harris as a starter on Thursday for the matchup, but he started him today because they won that game. Well, now it looks like that will be happening for a while. Harris is trending up and could flirt with top-50 value going forward.
Mar 11 - 8:58 PM

Tobias Harris is starting again on Saturday against the Knicks.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he started Harris on Thursday because of a matchup, but this time he's starting because they won on Thursday. Regardless, Harris' fantasy value is doing just fine.
Mar 11 - 3:46 PM

Tobias Harris started on Thursday, sending Jon Leuer to the bench, and hit 5-of-18 shots for 15 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 41 minutes of a 106-101 win over the Cavaliers.

Maybe it was for matchup reasons or maybe it was to try to shake the team out of a slump. Either way, the move worked and the Pistons won, but Harris has been putting up very similar numbers regardless of his role. Stan Van Gundy rolled with his starters for most of the game in an effort to beat the Cavs, so don't expect many 41-minute nights going forward, even if he sticks in the starting lineup. SVG said after the game he didn't know if he'd continue to start Harris or not, so there's that.
Mar 9 - 10:30 PM

Tobias Harris will start and Jon Leuer will come off the bench against the Cavs on Thursday, according to Pistons play-by-play man Mark Champion.

The Pistons have not been very good lately, so they'll make a change away from the point guard spot. This will be Harris' first start since Jan. 21, but it likely won't affect his playing time or stat output. He has played really well next to Ish Smith, so that's something to watch for tonight.
Mar 9 - 7:22 PM

Tobias Harris (left knee contusion) will play on Thursday against the Cavs.

Interestingly, coach Stan Van Gundy said Harris was more questionable than Aron Baynes (ankle) tonight, so Harris' knee contusion isn't nothing. For what it's worth, the Pistons do not use the probable tag too often like say the Nuggets or Lakers do. Expect Tobias to get to around 30 minutes tonight and could turn in a good game if this is close.
Mar 9 - 6:01 PM

Tobias Harris (left knee contusion) is probable to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He looked good in Wednesday's bad loss to the Pacers, scoring 22 points in 27 minutes. Harris was asked about the game Wednesday night, but he talked about not getting stops and not about the injury. For now, it looks like Harris should be good to go.
