Gary Harris is dealing with left plantar foot soreness.
Harris may miss a game or two in Summer League, but this doesn't sound like it's anything serious for the second-year player. With the Nuggets in rebuild mode, Harris could end up being a late-round fantasy value if he ends up earning more playing time. Jul 16 - 2:12 PM

Gary Harris hit 4-of-10 shots (0-for-5 3PTs) for 12 points with four rebounds and two steals over 26 minutes in Monday's preseason win over the Heat.

Harris is an injury or two away from decent minutes for a lottery-bound Nuggets team, so we'll be watching him this preseason. He hasn't really done anything to move the needle so far in his short NBA career.
Jul 13 - 10:28 PM

Gary Harris started at shooting guard on Monday with Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari being rested, scoring 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including three treys) with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

If 2-3 high usage players sit out on Wednesday against the Warriors, then Harris will be a risk-reward play and that's the best we can say for him.
Apr 14 - 5:18 AM

Erick Green, Randy Foye, Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried will start on Monday against the Clippers.

The Nuggets are resting guys, so all five should get minutes. Harris hasn't been playing well, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Apr 13 - 10:26 PM

Gary Harris (illness) returned to action on Friday, logging 10 minutes off the bench with just one rebound to his credit.

Harris hasn't had any traction this season and even if he was somehow unleashed in the season's final games we're not sure he'd be productive. .
Apr 11 - 3:33 AM

Gary Harris (stomach flu) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

We don't know much else regarding Harris because the Nuggets have been off since Saturday, but it's certainly not easy to play through a stomach flu. If Harris is out, there should be more minutes for Randy Foye and Will Barton.
Apr 8 - 3:48 PM

Gary Harris was whisper-quiet as a fill-in starter for the Nuggets on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound, one steal and one block in 16 minutes.

Will Barton stole his thunder (and his playing time) with an impressive bench performance, and Harris didn't help his cause by committing three fouls in limited action. He started due to Randy Foye's precautionary absence and this doesn't have any lasting implications for fantasy purposes.
Mar 15 - 9:20 PM

Gary Harris will slide into the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans with Randy Foye (rest) unavailable.

Nuggets' head coach Melvin Hunt said he will look to get the younger guys on the roster more consistent minutes as the Nuggets close out the regular season, so Harris will be a name to watch in deeper leagues. We'll let you know how he performs after the game, but the last time he hit double figures in the scoring department was back in November, so owners in deep leagues can feel comfortable using a wait-and-see approach here.
Mar 15 - 5:09 PM

Nuggets rookie Gary Harris was scoreless in six minutes off the bench vs. Milwaukee on Tuesday.

He had played at least 16 minutes in his previous five games but even then he wasn't anywhere near standard-league fantasy value. Coach Melvin Hunt doesn't seem inclined to give him big minutes, and the waiver wire should be Harris' permanent home.
Mar 3 - 11:58 PM

Gary Harris shifted back to Denver's bench vs. the Pelicans, playing 16 minutes to finish with two points, one rebound, one steal and one turnover.

Harris' minutes have spiked to 20.0 over his past five games, but he's a combined 10-of-33 from the field during that stretch and has done nothing to earn a bigger role. Fantasy owners should let him bob along on the waiver wire.
Mar 1 - 11:02 PM

Gary Harris scored 10 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Monday, adding two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was barely playing before tonight, but he picked up a nice chunk of Wilson Chandler's (groin) playing time. Harris will likely get more run down the stretch because the Nuggets will want to figure out if he's capable of being in their rotation next season, but he's played poorly this season with his season field goal percentage of 26.4. He's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Feb 24 - 12:02 AM

Gary Harris will start against the Nets on Monday.

The Nuggets are shifting Danilo Gallinari to small forward and starting the rookie guard for the first time. He was expected to play a little more, but only played four minutes on Friday and picked up most of his run on Sunday in garbage time. Harris is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 23 - 8:10 PM

Gary Harris didn't take a shot and only had one turnover in four minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

Well, so much for the Nuggets playing him more following the deadline. If you grabbed Harris in a deep league, you can probably look elsewhere.
Feb 21 - 2:46 AM

Gary Harris scored a career-high 13 points in a 108-87 win over the Pacers on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

He got a little extra run thanks to garbage time, but Harris is going to be in the rotation until Randy Foye (knee) gets back. Harris did look great in summer league, but he's only an option in very deep leagues.

Gary Harris will be active for the first time this season as the Nuggets take on the Pacers.

Harris has been inactive for every game so far this season, but he'll have an opportunity to step on the court Friday night in what will be a homecoming game for the Indiana native. Still, he'll have a very minimal role with the Nuggets, and isn't worth picking up in any format.
