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.

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.

Gary Harris (back) is probable for Sunday's game.

He has a chance to make his debut Sunday after struggling with a contusion in his back earlier this season. However, Harris doesn't figure to be in the rotation early on but owners in deep leagues would be wise to monitor him if the Nuggets keep losing games. Leave him on the waiver wire for now.

Garry Harris' rookie deal with the Denver Nuggets is for $6.1 million over four years.

Harris was projected to be a lottery pick but he dropped to 19th overall in the 2014 draft. He was hot-and-cold during this past Summer League in Vegas, dropping 33 points in one game against the Raptors, then shooting 1-of-12 the very next night against the Bulls. Harris is very talented, but he needs to crack the Nuggets' rotation first before he can even be considered a fantasy hoops option.

Gary Harris was on the bad end of the spectrum on Sunday, making just 1-of-12 from the field for nine points with five boards, one assist, two steals and two turnovers

He put up 33 points on Saturday and the Bulls put a choke-hold on his ability to attack the rim. Harris' big game was obviously a fluke, but at least we know he's capable of being a big-time scorer. It'll likely be a couple years before he's getting minutes in the high 20s.

Gary Harris was spectacular vs. the Raptors on Saturday, scoring 33 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

He shot 10-of-17 from the field on his way to a very efficient game. Harris could have been a lottery pick, but he slipped all the way down to 19 in the draft. The Spartan is in a bad spot for playing time and will have to somehow leapfrog Arron Afflalo and/or Randy Foye. That's not going to happen any time soon.

Nuggets sign G Gary Harris.

He was a full participant in the second day of mini-camp on Wednesday and he'll be ready to go in Las Vegas Summer League. Harris was expected to go in the lottery, but fell to 19th in the draft last month. The Nuggets won't have much playing time available for him with Arron Afflalo and Randy Foye more than capable of handling the minutes at shooting guard. Plus, Nate Robinson (knee) could back in the early part of the season.

General manager Tim Connelly said on Friday that Gary Harris is a "long-term play."

"I think Brian is an 'open competition' coach, and if [Harris and Jusuf Nurkic] come in and earn minutes, great," Connelly said. "But I like what's in front of them and I like the guys they are going to be able to learn from." The Nuggets got themselves a bit of a steal with Harris at 19, who some had projected as a top-10 pick. The addition of Arron Afflalo doesn't help Harris, so he's not on the radar in re-drafts.

The Nuggets drafted Michigan State G Gary Harris with the 19th pick in the draft, which they acquired from the Bulls in the Doug McDermott trade.

Harris is immediately being called the steal of the draft, as he fell farther than most thought he would, probably due to his size. He could be another Brad Beal, which is a good comparison. Harris led the Spartans in scoring at 16.7 points per game with most of his output coming beyond the paint. Harris was still able to make 50.2 percent of his two-point shots despite 74.7 percent of his shots coming as jump shots. The 6’4" guard is a bit undersized, so he may have an even tougher time scoring inside than he did as a Spartan.

Michigan State SG Gary Harris measured 6'2" without shoes at the draft combine in Chicago, and his 6'7" wingspan was the third-smallest of all measured wing players.

"I have played against bigger guards in the Big Ten all year and I was able to hold my own," Harris said. "I know it’s a different level in the NBA, but just because I might not be typical size for an NBA two guard, I still feel like I can go out there and compete and play." Harris, a projected lottery pick, averaged 16.7 points last season while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 35.2 percent from downtown.
