Gary Harris made 7-of-13 shots including four 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing a loss vs. the Lakers with a team-high 20 points in 33 minutes of action

Harris added three rebounds and one block, and his scoring ability became even more important with Nikola Jokic getting ejected in the second quarter tonight. His recent shoulder injury is a non-factor since he's been hyper-efficient with 66.7% shooting over the past two games (4.0 triples per game). Harris is rolling along as a top-50 roto value.

Gary Harris made 9-of-11 from the field for a season-high 22 points with three rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

He said there was some mental concern about getting over his soreness in his shooting shoulder, but chances are those concerns went away when he swished his first two attempts from deep in this game. Harris has said his goal is shoot 45 percent from deep this year, and he's on pace to do so with his 46.2 percent to get him to 13.2 points and 2.3 treys per game. Harris is a fantasy stud in a great offense. It's also worth a mention he played in garbage time, so the Nuggets really wanted to get him up to speed after missing a week.

Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) will play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

Harris missed two straight games, but practiced in full on Wednesday and has been trending in the right direction since. Harris has yet to take the step forward that many predicted he would coming into this season but we'll see if bounces back following this short respite. Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay will see their minutes scaled back with Harris returning to the lineup.
Nov 17 - 1:31 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder) is officially questionable to face the Pelicans on Friday.

He's said he's trending in the right direction and coach Mike Malone said he's expecting Harris to be out there. Harris' injury is to his shooting shoulder, so he may not be as aggressive as a shooter from deep. Plus, he said it's mental, which may bother him even more because he said he wants to shoot 45 percent from deep this year. If he's back, Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay would take a hit.

Gary Harris (shoulder) said he wants to play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

"Really, it’s more from a mental and confidence standpoint with that shoulder," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "I would be surprised if he doesn’t play on Friday night." Harris went through a full contact practice on Wednesday without issue, so he should be back in action on Friday night, which would send Will Barton back to the bench. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Friday morning's shootaround.

Gary Harris (shoulder) went through practice on Wednesday and said he’s trending in the right direction to be able to play on Friday.

The team has not said anything about his status after missing the last two games. However, it sounds like he has a great chance to play after getting a week off. With him out, it's been Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay stepping up.

Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) will not play on Monday vs. Portland.

Harris was a game-time call and coach Mike Malone said he's "definitely feeling better," and now he has a few days off to prepare for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. With Harris out, both Will Barton and Jamal Murray will get a nice bump in value.
Nov 13 - 8:33 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.

"He’s definitely feeling better and was able to get some good treatment yesterday," said head coach Mike Malone. "For today he was able to participate in portions of shootaround." Harris going through portions of shootaround is encouraging, but we'll have a better idea on his status after he goes through his pregame routine. If he's able to get back out there, Will Barton will return to the bench and his minutes would take a minor hit. Stay tuned.
Nov 13 - 2:37 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against Portland.

After Monday, the Nuggets don't play again until Friday, so if Harris sits out Monday's game that would give him a full week to recover. Will Barton got the start in his place on Saturday and posted 26 points, nine boards, five dimes, four triples, one steal, one block and one turnover in 38 minutes, so he'd be someone to consider in DFS should Harris indeed need to sit out Monday's game. Stay tuned.
Nov 12 - 2:18 PM

Gary Harris (shoulder) will not play against the Magic on Saturday and Will Barton will start in his place.

He is dealing with right shoulder soreness, so the team will allow his shooting shoulder to heal. Harris has been a bit of a slow healer in his career, so hopefully he's just out for one game. His fantasy owners should stand pat. Meanwhile, Barton greatly benefits while Malik Beasley gets more run and the point guard should play more too.
Nov 11 - 7:18 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Orlando.

If Harris is unable to play, Will Barton would likely start at shooting guard. Barton has been playing very well all season, especially so of late. Over the Nuggets last three games, Barton is averaging 17.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.3 treys in 32.0 minutes. If Harris is sidelined on Saturday, Barton would be a very enticing DFS option. Malik Beasley would also see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Nov 11 - 1:34 PM

Gary Harris said he's focusing most on getting to the free throw line more.

He said he's going to try to be more aggressive and just draw contact. So far this year, it has not gone well in that regard, attempting just seven free throws in his 343 minutes. Harris is a good shooter from the line with his 78.8 percent from the charity stripe, but he did go to the line just 2.4 times per game last year -- it also explains why his usage rate is fairly low. Even if he doesn't get to the line more than three times per game, Harris should still be viewed as a top-50 player when healthy.
Nov 8 - 4:52 PM

Gary Harris hit just 4-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, four rebounds, five assists and a career-high six steals in 30 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Nets.

While Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay continue to struggle, Harris just keeps plugging along. He's scored in single digits in two straight games, but is still averaging 11.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over his last five games. He's also one of Denver's best defenders and now might be a good buy-low opportunity after his two lackluster scoring games.
Nov 7 - 11:38 PM

Gary Harris scored just four points with three rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 20 minutes against the Warriors in a blowout loss on Saturday.

He's not going to be a 20-point scorer, so his fantasy owners can't really be too upset with the low offensive output. Hey, that stat line is pretty solid with scoring out of the equation, and we all know Harris will get minutes in the 30s for just about every close game. He's been the best defender in halfcourt defense this season (Synergy, minimum 50 possessions) and his owners should continue to expect him to be in the top-50 neighborhood in standard leagues.
