Gary Harris made all three shots from the field and both free throws for 10 points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.
We saw Harris peak from a minutes and usage standpoint earlier this month, but now he'll go back to being his super-efficient self with minutes in the low 30s with the Nuggets having their firepower back. That's still totally fine with Harris posting early-round value since the break. He's just a fantastic player in reality and in fantasy. Mar 25 - 1:01 AM

Gary Harris had another strong game during Wednesday's win vs. Cleveland, scoring 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting with three 3-pointers, four assists and three rebounds.

The Nuggets took it to the Cavs tonight, racking up 126 points on 53.1 percent shooting, and Harris got his slice of the cake. In his past four games he's averaging 21.5 points on 56.6 percent shooting, 2.5 triples, 3.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals. Despite being perpetually banged up to start the season, Harris was worth the wait.

Gary Harris hit 10-of-16 from the floor to finish with a team-high 28 points Monday in Houston and he added four assists and three steals.

The former Michigan State standout has averaged 20.2 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game over his past five outings. He is also working on a streak with at least one 3-pointer in eight straight outings, while connecting for a triple in 19 of his past 20 contests. Harris has really emerged as a fantasy asset, especially in rotisserie formats.
Mar 21 - 12:11 AM

Gary Harris scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He had one of the toughest jobs in the NBA tonight, guarding James Harden for most of his minutes. Harris is being a bigger part of the offense now with an increase in usage while he's also running the offense more. He continues to be an early-round player since the break, so keep him rolling with four games next week.
Mar 19 - 1:04 AM

Gary Harris made 6-of-9 from the field and all five from the line for 20 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday.

Efficiency is the name of the game for Harris. His 49.2 percent from the field is better than the top-qualifying shooting guard, C.J. McCollum, but Harris does need some more games to qualify himself. Harris has been even better since the break, averaging 16.8 points, 2.6 boards, 2.8 dimes, 1.5 steals and 2.5 treys on 53.1 percent from the field. He's been a third-round player since the All-Star Game in standard leagues.
Mar 17 - 12:38 AM

Gary Harris scored 24 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

That fluky zero-point game last Saturday may have got him going. In those last four, he averaged 18.5 points, 2.8 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.8 steals and 2.8 treys on 60.9 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from the line -- a 74.7 true shooting percentage. Harris is rolling as a mid-round guy going forward.
Mar 12 - 4:06 AM

Gary Harris scored a career-high 26 points during a 123-113 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, four assists and six 3-pointers.

Those 3-pointers were also a career best for the man they call Garris. After an epic dud with no points in 22 minutes on Saturday, Harris has busted out with incredible efficiency in his last two, scoring 20.5 points per game on an 86.3 true shooting percentage. He hasn't really done too much outside of the scoring lately, which is basically bizarro Harris as one of the highest-floor, multiple-stat guys in fantasy. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
Mar 9 - 2:12 AM

Gary Harris missed his only shot from the field and didn't go to the line in his scoreless outing against the Hornets, adding one rebound and one steal in 22.

Umm, what? A 4.4 usage rate? Harris just wasn't getting the ball and he couldn't get out in transition because the Hornets take great care of the ball. He wasn't too discouraged after the game, though. "It was just one of those games today," Harris said. "Can't think too much about it. Gotta bounce back." He was putting up must-start value and his owners should expect a good game against the Kings on Monday.
Mar 4 - 11:50 PM

Gary Harris scored a career-high 25 points with two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

Yeah, it was against the Nets, but Harris is on a roll and his coach gave him some credit. "I think Nikola [Jokic] loves playing with him because that is one of his favorite targets because Gary is in constant motion," coach Mike Malone said. Harris has been above his season scoring average in each of his last six games with 16 or more on terrific efficiency in each, as well. His strong second half last year was no fluke and he looks like a mid-round guy going forward. Harris probably deserves more mainstream love as one of the best 22-year-old guards in the NBA.
Feb 25 - 2:36 AM

Gary Harris scored 23 points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and five 3-pointers against the Kings on Thursday.

He was just one point off his season high in scoring for this game. The Nuggets pushing Jamal Murray to the one would be a big win for Harris, who has been heating up this month. In his previous February games, Harris averaged 15.2 points, 3.2 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.4 treys. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
Feb 24 - 1:18 AM

Gary Harris fell two points shy of his season high on Wednesday, making 8-of-17 shots with three 3-pointers to score 22 points in 38 minutes.

Harris added four boards, two assists and two steals, and this marks his fourth strong shooting performance. His minutes are up due to injuries recently, but his mid-round fantasy value is safe no matter who suits up for Denver.
Feb 15 - 11:49 PM

Gary Harris played through a hamstring injury and started, hitting 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal in 32 minutes of Monday's easy win over the Warriors.

The Nuggets' starters combined to hit 19 of their 24 3-pointers tonight, and Harris has been playing very well. He's scored exactly 16 points in three straight games and is averaging 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 3.0 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over his last five games. The Nuggets are on fire, completely banged up, and the healthy ones, including Harris, deserve to be in fantasy lineups right now.
Feb 14 - 12:19 AM

Gary Harris (right hamstring soreness) is starting on Monday vs. the Warriors.

The Nuggets only have nine available players, so Harris will have log heavy minutes even though he's not 100 percent. He still belongs in most season-long lineups and should get a chance to heal up over the break.
Feb 13 - 8:32 PM

Gary Harris (right hamstring soreness) is probable for Monday's matchup vs. the Warriors.

Harris appeared to tweak his right leg during Saturday's game, but it doesn't sound serious and with luck it won't cost him any games. A 'probable' designation in Denver is usually a very good sign, but owners should check for confirmation after Monday's shootaround.
Feb 12 - 6:57 PM

Gary Harris scored 16 points with three rebounds, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

In the fourth quarter, Harris was getting his right leg stretched out by the training staff. He didn't look hurt or anything, but this is just worth a mention given how he's dealt with so many injuries. Harris could be fine, so assume he's a go for Monday against the Warriors. He has fifth-round value in his last 10 games, so keep him rolling in all standard leagues.
