Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he thinks that Gary Harris is "ahead of schedule."
"I don’t want to say anything that would be off-base. I don’t know if he’s going to be able to play at the end of this road trip," Malone said. "Maybe when we get back. I know that our medical staff has been very pleased about how he’s progressed with his rehab and his on-court work." The Nuggets are going to ramp up his workload this week, so he's a nice stash for owners in need of triples and steals. Will Barton should be a strong play in fantasy for the next couple weeks until Harris is able to return. Dec 4 - 10:43 AM

The Nuggets are hopeful Gary Harris (foot) can return at the back end of their six-game road trip.

That doesn't necessarily mean Harris will be back on this trip. The Nuggets are on the road from Dec. 3-12, so it's a big range of target dates. For now, he's still likely to be back closer to Christmas than early December. Will Barton will get plenty of minutes at the two until Harris is back.
Dec 3 - 7:52 PM

Gary Harris (foot) went through the non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

Harris is currently in Week-2 of his initial four-week timetable, so while he's still a ways away, this is small step in the right direction. Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Jameer Nelson will continue to benefit in Harris' absence, and while it's been an extremely rough start to the year for Harris, he still offers enough upside to warrant a stash in standard leagues with an IR-spot.

Gary Harris said he's hopeful he'll soon be able to shed the walking boot on his injured right foot.

"I shouldn’t be in a boot much longer and just go from there and see how it feels when I get out of the boot," said Harris. "They’ve been killing me in conditioning. I’ve been on the bike a lot, and in the pool." The Nuggets still haven't said exactly what Harris is dealing with injury wise in his right foot, but he's still likely to miss at least another three weeks of action. Will Barton will be starting in his absence, with Jamal Murray seeing some increased opportunity with the second unit.

Gary Harris (right foot) will not play Wednesday vs. the Suns.

Head coach Michael Malone announced on Tuesday that Harris is dealing with a mid-foot sprain that will sideline him for the next four weeks, so no surprises here. Jameer Nelson drew the start in his absence during Sunday's loss to Portland, but it was Jamal Murray who made the most notable contribution to the box score with 19 points and five triples through 28 minutes of action. Will Barton (ankle) is also with an uncertain return date, so Murray should be logging major minutes moving forward.

Mike Malone said that Gary Harris (right foot) could miss the next four weeks of action.

Harris has gotten off to an incredibly rough start this year, spending the first four games of the season on the sidelines recovering from a groin injury, and now he's looking at another lengthy absence. The Nuggets are currently sitting on a 3-7 record out West, so there's no reason for Harris to rush his return, and if you're in a standard league without an IR-spot you may need to consider cutting him. Jamal Murray is going to see a ton of opportunity moving forward, but Jameer Nelson might be Harris' replacement in the starting five. This is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues.

Gary Harris (right foot injury) will not play Wednesday vs. the Suns.

Harris' current ailment seemed to be a minor issue when it first occurred, but the fact that he is already ruled out a day before the Nuggets next game suggests it might be slightly more serious. He is still likely day-to-day, but we will have to wait for an update. The only positive is that this current foot/ankle injury is unrelated to the groin injury that kept him sidelined for the first four games of this season. Jamal Murray is likely to start in his place on Wednesday.
Nov 15 - 12:30 PM

Gary Harris (right ankle) will not play vs. the Blazers on Sunday, according to coach Mike Malone.

Harris hurt himself on Saturday and the injury got worse overnight, forcing him to the sidelines for the fifth time in 11 games this season. It sounds like Harris is day-to-day so there's a good chance he can return for Wednesday's home game vs. Phoenix. Jamal Murray is likely to start in his absence tonight.
Nov 13 - 7:36 PM

Gary Harris (right ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. Portland.

Now we know why Harris went to the locker room during Saturday's game. Harris did return to the game, but his ankle likely swelled up on him overnight. With Will Barton (ankle) already ruled out, the Nuggets will have to rely on rookie Jamal Murray if Harris isn't able to go.
Nov 13 - 1:24 PM

Gary Harris returned to Saturday's game with five minutes left in the fourth quarter.

He went to the locker room due to some sort of discomfort and we still didn't get a diagnosis. Harris had a groin issue cost him most of the preseason and the start of the regular season, so that may have been it. For now, it looks like he's fine. We'll let you know how he looks in these final five minutes.
Nov 12 - 11:01 PM

Gary Harris headed back to Nuggets locker room late in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Pistons.

Harris seemed to suffer a lower-body injury. He was fouled with approximately three minutes left in the third quarter and was able to take and make his free throws, but the Nuggets immediately fouled once Detroit inbounded the ball in order to get Harris out of the game. Harris then proceeded to head back to the locker room. The obvious concern is a re-aggravation of the groin injury that cost him four weeks of action. Harris did return to the bench in the fourth quarter, but we don't yet have a solid update. Stay tuned...
Nov 12 - 10:52 PM

Gary Harris scored 11 points in 18 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday, adding two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer on 5-of-7 from the field.

He only played 12 minutes in the first half, so Harris likely wasn't going to top his 30 minutes from Tuesday even in a close game. The good news for Harris is the other shooting guards aren't playing too well and coach Mike Malone doesn't want to slide a small forward over to the two. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 12:20 AM

Gary Harris scored a season-high 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes in Tuesday's 108-107 loss to Memphis.

If you drafted and stashed Harris, these are the type of lines you can expect moving forward. He was only expected to see minutes in the 20s tonight, so the 30-minute effort is a sign that his groin is at or close to 100 percent.
Nov 8 - 11:00 PM

Gary Harris is in line for a small-to-moderate minutes increase Tuesday vs. Memphis.

Harris started and played 21 minutes on Sunday. "He'll have more minutes [Tueday]. He's responded really well to the first couple of games and treatment and he feels good. We're not going to put him out there 40 minutes obviously, but we'll extend that 20-minute range," said coach Mike Malone. If Harris is still on your league's waiver wire, go grab him.
Nov 8 - 12:41 PM

Gary Harris started Sunday's win in Boston and had 12 points, four boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes of action.

Mike Malone said before the game, "We're looking to bring someone into the lineup that can give us an edge, some toughness, some offense." That description fits Harris perfectly and he looked great tonight, showing little rust despite his recent injury. He's unlikely to cede the starting job the rest of the season, making him a terrific guy to own for across-the-board value with an emphasis on 3-pointers and steals.
