Gary Harris (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Thursday.
This will be his second game out of the lineup. Harris is having a tough go this year, suffering injuries to his groin, foot and now this ankle sprain. With him out, Will Barton is a must-start player in season long and is probably worth using in DFS. Jamal Murray also benefits. Harris should still probably remain owned in standard leagues despite all these injuries. Jan 18 - 5:25 PM

As expected, Gary Harris will not play for the Nuggets on Tuesday due to a sprained right ankle.

Will Barton (flu) is available and it would be surprising if both he and Jameer Nelson don't make some noise tonight in Harris' absence.

X-rays on Gary Harris' sprained right ankle came back negative, but Harris is not expected to be available on Tuesday when the Nuggets play the L.A. Lakers.

Harris has played just 17 of the Nuggets 38 games this season due to a variety of groin and foot injuries, and it appears he will miss at least one more due to this ankle sprain. The good news is that this injury seems relatively minor. "I don’t think this is nearly as serious or severe as the previous injury," coach Mike Malone said. Jameer Nelson and Will Barton will likely see a boost if Harris is unable to play.

Gary Harris (right ankle sprain) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

"It is the same leg that his foot injury was on but this is separate," said head coach Mike Malone. "It is an ankle thing and he is doubtful for [Tuesday's game against the Lakers]." With Harris on the sidelines, Jameer Nelson could enter the starting lineup and Will Barton will see some increased opportunity with the second unit. Jamal Murray could also get into the rotation, although he only managed to get on the court for five minutes on Monday despite the game being a blowout.

Gary Harris (right ankle sprain) will not return to Monday's game against the Magic.

Ugh. Harris just hasn't been able to stay healthy this season, as he's had some major issues with his right leg. He's now missed time with a groin and foot injury (both to his right leg), and it's looking like this new ankle injury could again force him to the sidelines for at least a few games. Will Barton and Jamal Murray will benefit sans Harris, with Barton offering a bit more upside. The only positive here is that X-rays came back negative, but we should get a rough timetable after he undergoes an MRI.

Gary Harris (right groin) is headed to the locker room.

Harris appeared to tweak his groin on a drive to the hoop, and after being evaluated on the bench, the Nuggets trainers decided to take him back to the locker room for further evaluation. It's worth noting that he was walking with a noticeable limp, which isn't the greatest sign. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 5:26 PM

Gary Harris (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Magic.

They were both listed as probable so no surprises here. Emmanuel Mudiay, Kenneth Faried and Nikola Jokic will join them in the starting five with Wilson Chandler heading to the bench. Feel free to get Harris and The Rooster active.

Gary Harris (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) are probable to play Monday vs. the Magic.

Harris got back to the court following a one-game stint on the sidelines on Thursday, and Gallinari has been playing through his ankle soreness, so both these guys should be in uniform on Monday night. Check back for official confirmation following Monday morning's shootaround.
Jan 15 - 2:59 PM

Gary Harris (groin) returned to action on Thursday with 16 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

This is a very Harris-like line with a little bit of everything in efficient fashion, making 6-of-11 from the field and all three free throws. Harris did miss his last game due to a groin strain, which is what cost him the first four games of the regular season and most of the preseason. Harris won't light up the box score, but he's safe enough to own in standard leagues.
Jan 12 - 5:40 PM

Gary Harris (groin) will play on Thursday against the Pacers.

He was a late scratch on Saturday after an apparent aggravation in warmups. Harris has also been playing through it, so hopefully the time off got him all the way back. He should be owned in standard leagues. Even with Harris back, Will Barton should see minutes around 30.
Jan 12 - 2:37 PM

Gary Harris (groin) is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Pacers.

The Nuggets have been off since Jan. 7 and only play one time this week, so hopefully the extra time off has helped Harris' groin. He's been playing at less than 100 percent and wasn't able to play in the last game, but he's still worth holding onto in standard leagues. Harris has season averages of 12.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.3 triples.

Gary Harris (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) are questionable to play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

Harris' groin injury has officially turned into a nagging issue, as this is the same injury that sidelined him for the early portion of the season, so if there's any chance of him suffering a setback you can bank on him sitting out Thursday's contest. Gallinari is only dealing with sore ankles, so he seems a bit more likely to gut it out. If Harris is forced to the sidelines, Will Barton and Jamal Murray would benefit most.

Gary Harris (groin) is a late scratch against the Thunder on Saturday.

Uh oh. Harris had a tear in his groin earlier in this season, so there is a good chance this injury is related. Hopefully the Nuggets are just playing it safe because taking Harris away will likely make their bad defense even worse. Will Barton gets a massive bump and should be owned in all leagues. Jamal Murray should also get an increased role and is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Jan 7 - 8:04 PM

Gary Harris scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday.

After three off games, Harris was back to his efficient ways with a 7-of-12 shooting line. Harris usually won't dazzle his fantasy owners, but he doesn't hurt you anywhere and really showed some tremendous consistency last year. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Gary Harris played 30 minutes and hit 5-of-12 shots for 12 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in Friday's 109-108 loss to the Hawks.

Harris came out on fire when he debuted on Dec. 15, scoring 18, 16 and 24 points in his first three games of the season, but scored three on Tuesday against the Clippers, and 12 points with no 3-pointers tonight. The minutes are there, he's proven he can play and he should still be owned in all leagues, despite his struggles over the last two games.
