Gary Harris scored 10 points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday.
He had some uncharacteristic misses, including not being as strong at the rim. Perhaps Harris wasn't healthy from his knee injury, and that could be why he didn't start. Harris still had a tremendous season despite a handful of injuries. He'll be a top-50 pick next year. Apr 11 - 11:16 PM

Gary Harris is coming off the bench against the Wolves on Wednesday.

Coach Mike Malone said he is still likely going to play Harris 30 minutes, so basically he and Will Barton swap roles from what we're used to. Harris could still see minutes late in the game, which means Jamal Murray or Wilson Chandler would likely be not playing down the stretch. This should be fun.
Apr 11 - 7:32 PM

Gary Harris (knee) will not have a minutes limit for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Timberwolves.

Head coach Mike Malone wouldn't say if Harris would start, but he did say: "Like Apollo Creed said, 'there's no tomorrow.' If I have to play Gary Harris 30 min tonight, I'll play Gary Harris 30 min." He only played 18 minutes on Monday, but he looked good, so at the very least he should be able to flirt with minutes in the mid-20s. That'll take away some from Will Barton's fantasy appeal.
Apr 11 - 7:04 PM

Gary Harris (knee) returned to action on Monday vs. the Blazers, scoring 12 points with one rebound and two steals in 18 minutes.

He was running a little funny early and had a bulky brace, but he came alive down the stretch and also came up with a big steal on Portland's final possession. The Nuggets are facing a must-win game vs. the Wolves on Wednesday with the playoffs on the line, so we'd expect Harris' minutes to ramp up if his knee responds well in the morning.
Apr 9 - 11:43 PM

Gary Harris (knee) will play on Monday vs. the Blazers according to coach Mike Malone.

Coach Malone has called Harris the team MVP and he's returning just in time to help the Nuggets clinch a playoff a spot. Harris will come off the bench and is expected to see around 16-20 minutes.
Apr 9 - 7:21 PM

Gary Harris (knee) is expected to play Monday vs. Portland.

The Nuggets need to keep winning to keep their playoff hopes alive, and it sounds like they'll be getting Harris back to join in on the chase for the No. 8 spot tonight. He's missed the past 11 games and will likely have a minutes cap, but even with minutes in the mid-20s he's capable of offering value in fantasy hoops. He's not a great DFS play, but he should be picked up in leagues that go to the bitter end. Will Barton will likely head back to the bench if Harris plays.
Apr 9 - 4:02 PM

Gary Harris (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

He wasn't expected to return in the regular season, so this is a nice surprise for the Nuggets. The team's medical staff will monitor his pregame workout, so he's basically going to be a game-time call. This is a must-win game for Denver, so it will be interesting to see what kind of restrictions Harris will have.
Apr 9 - 12:53 PM

Gary Harris (knee) is doubtful to return before the end of the regular season.

This means Harris will be held out of Monday's game vs. Portland and Wednesday's game vs. Minnesota. Their playoff hopes are going to come down to the wire and it's a tough blow that they will be without the player that coach Malone called their MVP. "Right now, I’m not expecting Gary Harris back [in the regular season]," coach Malone said. "We have to continue to find ways to win games and compete at a high level with the players that are available, and Gary’s not on that list right now."
Apr 8 - 10:40 AM

Gary Harris (knee) is listed as out for Saturday against the Clippers.

It's hard to imagine him making it back for the regular season with only two games to play. Devin Harris caught fire in the third quarter to help the Nuggets earn their biggest win. The Nuggets also pulled out some two-center lineups to help fill minutes. Jamal Murray and Will Barton should play a ton.
Apr 6 - 3:26 PM

Coach Mike Malone said on Thursday that Gary Harris (knee) would likely miss Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

The Nuggets secured an immensely important victory on Thursday when they beat the Timberwolves. Denver is now tied with Minnesota for the eighth seed in the West. Harris has not played since March 15th and, according to Nuggets beat writer Harrison Wind, the best-case scenario for his return is Monday vs. Portland.
Apr 6 - 10:12 AM

Gary Harris (knee) will not play Thursday against the Wolves.

No surprise here as the Nuggets continue to be somewhat quiet on what exactly happened to Harris' knee. Will Barton should get another start while Devin Harris and Trey Lyles get some extra minutes.
Apr 4 - 6:22 PM

Gary Harris is expected to miss another 2-3 games, according to coach Michael Malone.

Harris has been out with a knee injury and if he misses two more games in addition to Tuesday night, he'd only have a shot to play in Denver's two final games of the season. In other words, your season is probably going to be over before he plays another game for the Nuggets, who might also see their season end early if they don't make a final playoff push. Right now they're the No. 9 seed in the West, a game behind the No. 8 Pelicans.
Apr 3 - 8:11 PM

Gary Harris (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pacers, as expected.

Mike Malone said that Harris was still "a ways away" on Friday, so there's a good chance he'll sit out all three games this week. Will Barton will continue to start in his absence, with Jamal Murray seeing an uptick in usage. If Harris does miss this week, that would give him a max of just two games left on the year, so he's not really worth hanging onto in re-draft formats.
Apr 2 - 5:04 PM

Gary Harris (knee) is still at least a week away from returning.

"He’s a ways away," coach Mike Malone said. The Nuggets keep pushing Harris' timetable back but there's no report of any setbacks. At this point, it's not a lock that Harris will return before the end of the regular season. Jamal Murray and Will Barton are locked into heavy workloads with Devin Harris getting a slight bump off the bench.
Mar 30 - 6:39 PM

Gary Harris (knee) will not play on Friday against the Thunder.

This is a tough blow in a huge game against OKC. There was some hope that he could return for this game as the Nuggets end their seven-game road trip, and now they'll have to try to end a two-game losing streak without Harris. The Nuggets have been pretty shady on this topic, which typically means a player will miss more than a team is letting on -- see: Leonard, Kawhi. With Harris out, the starting five will have to really step up while Devin Harris and Trey Lyles see some extra time.
