Gary Harris played a game-high 40 minutes on Sunday, but he finished with only four points on 2-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, three assists and one steal.
Over the Nuggets' past 10 games, Harris has a paltry usage rate of 14.2 percent. He typically makes the most of his opportunities, however, hitting 45.8 percent of his field goals and 81.4 percent of his free throws, enough to give him late-round appeal in roto formats. Feb 7 - 4:28 PM

Gary Harris started and played 42 minutes for the Nuggets on Wednesday, but hit just 4-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, six rebounds and three steals.

Harris getting so many minutes is bad news for Will Barton, but Barton still managed to double-double in just 23 minutes off the bench. Harris is always an intriguing fantasy option as long as he's starting and getting minutes, but he's also pretty hit-or-miss from night to night. To that point, Harris has scored 11, 9, 18, 5 and 15 points in each of his last five games and the Nuggets like him more for his defense than his offense.
Feb 4 - 12:31 AM

Gary Harris scored 18 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

Coach Mike Malone loves him for his defense, but he got handled tonight. Whatever the case, Harris has seen 32.2 minutes per game in his last five, averaging 13.2 points, 2.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.4 blocks, 2.8 steals and 1.6 treys. That's third-round value, but he put up eighth round value in January. It's fair to expect him to put up eighth-round value going forward, making him worth a long look in most leagues.

Gary Harris showed no ill effects from his recent leg injury on Wednesday, notching 15 points, seven rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during a road loss at Boston.

Harris is an under-appreciated player in both reality and fantasy -- in the latter category, he's been a subtle top-100 roto value in January thanks to 12.1 points, 1.6 triples and 1.3 steals with solid percentages. As with many guys who quietly contribute across-the-board stats, Harris is less appealing in points leagues.
Jan 27 - 10:46 PM

Gary Harris (leg) is fine and will play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

Harris was running with a slight limp during Monday's game, but that won't stop him from taking the court Wednesday night. Harris has been playing very well over the past month, owning averages of 12.6 points, 1.4 steals and 1.7 three-pointers per game on 46.1 percent shooting, which has been good enough for seventh-round value in standard 9-cat leagues. If you're looking for some production in steals and treys, Harris is your guy.
Jan 27 - 12:47 PM

Gary Harris scored 15 points on Monday vs. the Hawks, but he was running with a slight limp.

Harris' injury is unclear, but we should have more details when he is re-evaluated on Tuesday. The guard has made tremendous strides since last season, and he also added one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers to his name. Harris is averaging 13.2 points, 3.2 boards, 2.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, so give him a look if you need a guard.
Jan 26 - 12:31 AM

Gary Harris recorded a career-high five steals in Saturday's win over the Pistons, finishing with 13 points, four boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

The second year player has been a pleasant surprise all season, and he has now hit at least one 3-pointer in 14 straight games. He's returning top-120 value over his last five games with averages of 12.4 points, 3.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, so he's worth a look if you're desperate for a guard.
Jan 24 - 12:46 AM

Gary Harris scored 20 points with four rebounds and two assists vs. the Pacers on Sunday, hitting 8-of-12 shots to help the Nuggets hold on for a 129-126 home victory.

Harris made one 3-pointer with only two turnovers in 38 minutes of action, and the 20 points were one shy of his season high. He exploited a weak effort from the Pacers defensively, which coach Frank Vogel described as "an embarrassment," but Harris has been hot lately with five straight double-digit games. Deep-league owners should give him a look for points, 3-pointers and a trickle of supporting stats.
Jan 17 - 11:09 PM

Gary Harris scored 19 points on 7-of-14 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs on Wednesday, hitting one 3-pointer with seven rebounds and one block.

Harris only turned the ball over once in 39 minutes and his typically solid defense helped limit Klay Thompson to 17 points on 13 shot attempts. Harris is worth a look if you need a cheap source of 3-pointers (1.3) and steals (1.1), but he's not a very appealing option in points leagues.
Jan 14 - 1:10 AM

Gary Harris scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting Friday, adding one 3-pointer, five boards, one assist, one steal and four turnovers in 31 minutes.

Harris was just one of three Denver players to hit double-figures in the scoring department tonight, which tells you what kind of game this was against the Grit'n'Grind Grizzlies. While Harris minutes are safe as the unquestioned starting two-guard in Denver, he's not much more than a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 8 - 10:57 PM

Gary Harris scored eight points with two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday.

Will Barton played more minutes at shooting guard tonight, which explains why Harris' playing time is so low. After logging minutes close to 40 while the team was banged up, Harris is likely going to be in the mid-to-upper 20s now. Based on his per-minute output, he's not someone worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 11:20 PM

Gary Harris scored 19 points in 41 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

He's played well for the most part, but he struggled with his shooting before tonight. Coach Mike Malone trusts Harris a lot with 35.1 minutes per game in his last six, averaging 13.7 points, 3.2 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.5 treys in that span. He's not going to be a season-saving add because his usage rate is going to drop soon, but he's worth a look in 14- and 16-team leagues.

Gary Harris (strained right knee) started Wednesday's game and notched four points on 2-of-13 shooting with three rebounds and three assists without any turnovers in 38 minutes.

He hyper-extended his knee on Tuesday and may not have been 100 percent, but the lousy shooting was partly because he played outside his comfort zone with Denver so short-handed. He's attempted double-figure shots in nine games this season, five of which came in the past two weeks. He has some specialist appeal for 3-pointers but that's about it.

Gary Harris is starting against the Suns on Wednesday.

He was probable and should get massive minutes tonight. Harris is worth a long look in standard leagues, especially with Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) out for more games.

Gary Harris (hyperextended right knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

Harris suffered the knee injury during Tuesday's game against the Lakers, but played through it, and scored a career-high 21 points. There's no reason to believe he'll miss tonight's game, and he makes sense as a punt play in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against the Suns and an increased role on offense sans Danilo Gallinari (ankle, out).
