Gary Harris (foot) looked 100 percent against the Bucks on Thursday, scoring 28 points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
He was called probable today and apparently likes to be on the injury report. He hit his signature game-winning jumper against OKC with a minor ankle issue, he dropped 23 against the Knicks in January with a minor injury, and he had 25 against Dallas when he had a personal issue put him on the report last month, too. Harris still doesn't get the credit he deserves in the mainstream hoops world, but hardcore fans and fantasy owners know how special he is. Feb 15 - 10:42 PM

Date:

Gary Harris and Jamal Murray will start against the Bucks on Thursday.

They'll join Wilson Chandler, Will Barton and Nikola Jokic in the first unit. Harris did have a minor right foot injury put him on the injury report, but it was likely just a precaution. Fire him up in all leagues.
Feb 15 - 7:42 PM

Gary Harris (foot) is listed as probable for Thursday against the Bucks.

It's being called a bruised right mid-foot injury, but Harris should be out there today. Harris did have this same injury last month, but it didn't cost him any games. His fantasy owners should expect him to play his normal minutes.
Feb 15 - 3:37 PM

Gary Harris posted 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting, including 3-of-5 from behind the arc, in Saturday's 123-113 win at Phoenix.

Harris also contributed with five rebounds and two steals while turning it over just once. It's always nice for fantasy owners when their team faces the Suns, the NBA's worst defensive squad statistically. Things should tighten up considering when the Spurs invade Pepsi Center on Tuesday night.
Feb 11 - 12:47 AM

Gary Harris went off for 27 points, five 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound and one steal in Monday's 121-104 win over the Hornets.

He hit all five of his triples in the first quarter, finishing 9-of-13 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Coach Mike Malone has called him Denver's MVP this season and it's easy to see why. He's been their most consistent player and this was his 17th game of the season with 20+ points. He'll get a few days off before Friday's game vs. the Rockets.
Feb 5 - 11:47 PM

Gary Harris hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Thunder on Thursday, finishing with 25 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

If you missed this game, you may have missed the best game of the year with Harris hitting a deep trey over Russell Westbrook on an ATO with 1.4 seconds left (video in link below). After the game, Harris said he last game winner like that was in pickup ball. He hasn't been used much in the clutch this season with only a 17.0 usage rate during those 54 minutes, but that may change after this. He's having an amazing year in reality and in fantasy with early-round output.

Gary Harris (sore left ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Thursday.

Harris unexpectedly popped up on the injury report earlier in the day, but it appears that he's fine. He's scored double-digit points in 22 consecutive games (excluding two DNPs) and should have another solid game vs. OKC's defense tonight.
Feb 1 - 8:54 PM

Gary Harris is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder with left ankle soreness.

This is the first we're hearing about an ankle issue, but it doesn't sound serious and he's fully expected to play. He's flirting with early-round value in 9-category leagues and is a must-start option in all formats.
Feb 1 - 11:58 AM

Gary Harris scored 24 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers during a 91-89 win over the Mavs on Saturday.

He's one of the most aggressive defenders in the NBA, but his offense is starting to catch up to his defense. It's not the hottest take to say he's the best finisher at the rim among guards with a flashy finish almost every night. Plus, he's made 74 percent at the rim to put him in LeBron James territory -- James has an incredible 77% at rim -- and Harris crushes Kyrie Irving's 63% within three feet. Harris is going to be a fantasy stud for a long time.
Jan 28 - 12:44 AM

Gary Harris scored 23 points with three rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

Needless to say, his bruised foot that made him a game-time decision today did not bother him too much after he was icing it following warmups. After the game, coach Mike Malone said Harris has been the team's MVP so far this season. He's made another huge jump this year as he flirts with early-round value in nine-category leagues.
Jan 26 - 12:01 AM

Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Will Barton, Mason Plumlee and Nikola Jokic will start against the Knicks on Thursday.

The Nuggets will stick with the same starters for two games in a row. Harris also iced his foot before this game, so maybe he's not 100 percent.
Jan 25 - 8:28 PM

Gary Harris (foot) is available to play vs. the Knicks on Thursday.

He had some ice on his foot after warmups from an injury he sustained as he stepped on T.J. Warren's foot. Coach Mike Malone was confident Harris would play, but he wouldn't mention if he had a restriction. For now, he should be in all lineups and hopefully won't be restricted.
Jan 25 - 8:01 PM

Coach Mike Malone said he was confident Gary Harris (foot) would be able to play on Thursday.

He is technically a game-time decision, but it sounds like Harris will be out there after suffering a bruised mid-foot injury against the Suns. Harris has struggled to stay healthy at times, so hopefully this new injury doesn't turn into something else.
Jan 25 - 7:28 PM

Gary Harris (foot) is questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday and did not practice on Wednesday.

It's being called a bruised right mid foot, so it doesn't sound like it's serious. Harris did a couple issues with his right foot earlier in his career, so this will be something to watch. If he can't go, Malik Beasley and Torrey Craig could see some additional minutes to help out Will Barton on the wing.
Jan 24 - 2:24 PM

Gary Harris scored 19 points with two rebounds, four assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He was very quiet in the second half after he was the team's leading scorer in the first half. Harris did land on his right shoulder in the first half, but it didn't seem to affect him in this game. He did have a right shoulder injury back in October and November, so his owners may want to make sure he's a full go leading up to Friday. For now, expect him to be very busy in a dream matchup against the Suns, especially with Jamal Murray likely out.
