Magic head coach James Borrego said Tobias Harris (knee) felt good after Sunday's game against the 76ers and will be ready for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Harris struggled during his 25 minutes of playing time on Sunday, but Borrego's statement is great news for Tobias' fantasy owners. While Borrego may use a minutes limit for Harris in the short-term, he has enough upside to be a nightly start in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 24 - 11:12 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) struggled in 25 minutes during his return on Sunday, posting four points on 2-of-6 shooting, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers in a start vs. the 76ers.

He missed the past three games dating back to Feb. 9 and wasn't able to take advantage of the favorable matchup tonight. Interim coach James Borrego may be forced to limit Harris' minutes to keep him healthy down the stretch, but his top-50 upside is enough reason for fantasy owners to stay patient.
Feb 22 - 9:04 PM

Tobias Harris (knee) will draw the start for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

Harris will return to action with a fantastic matchup against the Sixers, and he's certainly someone to consider for those playing daily leagues. His return to the starting lineup will send either Channing Frye or Evan Fournier back to the bench, and with averages of 17.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.1 three-pointers per game, Harris is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform.
Feb 22 - 4:16 PM

Tobias Harris (right knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.

This is an about-face from yesterday and is troubling news. Harris missed the last two games before the break and history suggests he's been a slow healer, so he could be out beyond tonight. His owners have to bench him. Evan Fournier will start, but expect to see more production out of Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo.
Feb 20 - 5:20 PM

Tobias Harris (right knee) is now being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

There was a report yesterday that Harris had been cleared to play, but it appears head coach James Borrego is going to be cautious with his asset. We’d consider Harris to be on the probable side of the questionable tag, but if he is forced to sit, Evan Fournier will likely get another game with the starting unit and he'd make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Feb 20 - 9:54 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) has been cleared to play on Friday against the Pelicans.

He was monitored on Wednesday at practice and he should be able to play his normal playing time. Harris has been logging a whopping 41.0 minutes per game in February, averaging 22.5 points, 7.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He should have a big second half under his new coach.
Feb 19 - 11:37 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) has reportedly improved and will be monitored at Wednesday's practice.

Harris missed the Magic's last two games prior to the All-Star break so he has been able to get some much needed rest for his ailing knee. The Magic will likely provide an update on Harris' status after the practice, so be sure to check back for updates. As of right now, Harris should be considered questionable to play against the Pelicans on Friday, while Evan Fournier would benefit the most if he misses any more action.
Feb 18 - 11:05 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) will not play on Wednesday against the Knicks.

This will be Harris' second straight game on the sidelines, but it makes a lot of sense for the Magic to rest him as he will now have eight full days to recover properly thanks to the All-Star break. Evan Fournier figures to be the primary beneficiary with this news as he scored 18 points in 37 minutes on Monday, so owners in daily leagues should give him a look. We will continue to track Harris' progress closely over the coming week, so stay tuned for updates.
Feb 11 - 9:48 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) will not play against the Wizards on Monday.

He was coming in with some momentum, scoring a career-high 34 points on Friday and playing 39 minutes on Sunday. Harris has battled knee soreness before and there's a very good chance the team will rest him on Wednesday. The last time Harris was out, Devyn Marble picked up a lot of the slack, but that was before Aaron Gordon was fully healthy. It will likely be a combination of Gordon, Marble, Channing Frye and Evan Fournier picking up the extra run. Gordon is probably the most alluring play. If you need blocks, Kyle O'Quinn is also very attractive.
Feb 9 - 5:31 PM

Tobias Harris made 14-of-18 from the field for a career-high 34 points against the Lakers during an overtime 103-97 win on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

Needless to say, coach James Borrego is probably going to be a big fan of Harris. He played at least 38 minutes in three consecutive games and has been used at both forward spots. He had a prolonged slump to start 2015, but the days of him being a mid-round guy appear to be back. Congrats if you bought low.
Feb 6 - 10:10 PM

Tobias Harris stayed hot on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in a loss to San Antonio.

It wasn't long ago we were touting him a buy-low candidate when Jacque Vaughn was messing with him, but Harris is finally back. Make sure he's in your lineup.
Feb 5 - 1:14 AM

Tobias Harris continued to ramp back up in Monday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 18 points on 8-of-20 shooting (0-for-5 from deep) with four rebounds and four assists in 41 minutes.

Harris did not make a three or record a steal or block and this is probably the last game to buy him low. The 41 minutes are a great sign that his ankle injury is behind him and the money counting stats will follow suit.
Feb 3 - 2:14 AM

Tobias Harris started for the first time since his ankle injury from earlier this month, playing 30 minutes for eight points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

He didn't have a great game and made just 2-of-8 from the field. Harris was on a roll before his injury, but he's been extremely quiet in the past five games, averaging 8.6 points, 3.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.2 triples on 28.6 percent from the field. Get those buy-low offers ready.
Jan 31 - 10:26 PM

Tobias Harris will start in place of Channing Frye on Saturday against the Mavs.

It's been a long time coming for Harris and he should play minutes close to 30 even with a bruise on his leg. Harris should be in all standard lineups tonight in what should be an up-tempo game. Frye is not worth owning in most leagues.
