General manager Tim Connelly said the starting shooting guard job still belongs to Gary Harris.
As it should. Harris was one of the best young perimeter defenders and is one of just seven NBA players under the age of 22 with at least 30 minutes per game last season. Plus, he was very efficient with a 57 true shooting percentage. He's still a pretty good bet to put up minutes in the low 30s even with Jamal Murray as a potential scoring stud. Jun 24 - 12:31 AM

Gary Harris' recent groin injury didn't limit him on Wednesday, as he played 37 minutes to finish a road loss with 16 points, four rebounds and one assist.

Harris knocked down 6-of-15 shots with a pair of 3-pointers and the fact that he approached 40 minutes despite a groin injury sums up how much coach Mike Malone loves him. With minimal fanfare, the second-year guard crept into mid-round value this season (9-cat) with averages of 12.2 points, 1.4 triples, 2.9 boards, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals, while shooting 47.1 percent from the field and 81.7 percent from the line.

Gary Harris is starting against the Blazers on Wednesday night.

He is good to go after being listed questionable on Tuesday. The Nuggets could help themselves slightly in the lottery with the Bucks and Kings losing tonight. Harris had a terrific season and it's an easy argument to make that he looks like a better player than Doug McDermott.

Gary Harris (groin) has been upgraded to probable to face the Blazers on Wednesday.

He was questionable yesterday, so he must be feeling better. Harris should get around his season average of 32 minutes for his final game of his mini-breakout sophomore season. He'll be assigned to guarding C.J. McCollum in a big game for the Blazers.

Gary Harris (right groin soreness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

Harris tends to play if he's capable of walking, so it would be surprising to see him sit out Denver's regular-season finale. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, and if he is unable to give it a go, it'll be Will Barton, D.J. Augustin, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jusuf Nurkic all being asked to do a bit more on the offensive end. Stay tuned.

Gary Harris had 17 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.

Will Barton hit just 3-of-12 shots off the bench for eight points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer, and Harris has been outplaying him regularly in Denver. Barton played 30 minutes, but is far from reliable these days, while Harris can be started with confidence.
Apr 6 - 12:31 AM

Gary Harris played only 20 minutes on Wednesday to finish with five points on 2-of-7 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound, four assists, one steal and one block.

"I look at our young guys and I think our guys are all fatigued," coach Mike Malone said before the game. This was the Nuggets' third game in four days, and they play again on Thursday, so fatigue may have been a contributing factor in tonight's dud. Harris has been playing huge minutes and it's possible that Malone will begin to rein in his playing time, but owners shouldn't lose faith after one quiet game.
Mar 30 - 11:04 PM

Gary Harris scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with two assists, one rebound, three 3-pointers, two steals and zero turnovers through 29 minutes of action.

Harris’ ability to efficiently and consistently put up points, triples and steals has him churning out mid-round value since the break. He’s a foundational piece to the Nuggets’ franchise, so he should continue to log heavy minutes down the stretch. He’s worth owning in all leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:26 PM

Gary Harris scored 15 points with four boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer vs. the Hawks on Thursday.

Most importantly, Harris was the only starter who played more than 23 minutes because the game was a blowout. Harris was 6-of-15 from the field and he looks like the only player in Denver that is safe from coach Michael Malone's sporadic rotations. Harris will continue to be a steady source of points, triples and steals and is worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 17 - 11:40 PM

Gary Harris had 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss.

Harris has scored at least 12 points in each of his eight March games and has been more consistent than teammate Will Barton this month. Harris is a lock for 36 minutes a night and looks like a safe fantasy play in any format right now.
Mar 15 - 9:35 PM

Gary Harris scored 17 points vs. the Wizards on Saturday with five boards, two assists, one block and one steal in 31 minutes.

He missed all three of his triples and had three turnovers, but he was excellent on defense and shot an efficient 8-of-13 from the field. Harris was averaging 14.7 points, 3.1 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 47.8 percent shooting in his previous 11 games since the All-Star break, returning top-75 value in that span. He needs to be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 13 - 12:38 AM

Gary Harris hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers on Tuesday.

He's scored 16 points in three of his last five games and is averaging 16.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.8 3-pointers over that stretch. Make sure he's not available in your league.
Mar 9 - 12:13 AM

Gary Harris (right shoulder contusion) started Sunday's game and posted 16 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 44 minutes, helping the Nuggets defeat the Mavericks 116-114.

Mike Malone loves Harris for his defensive presence and has admitted that he struggles to take him off the court. Massive playing time helps sustain Harris' fantasy value, and over the past month he's carved out mid-round value (9-cat) on the strength of 13.6 points, 1.4 threes, 1.8 steals and low turnovers. In spite of that stealthy production, he's owned in just 35 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
Mar 6 - 8:17 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder) will play Sunday vs. Dallas.

Harris was probable heading into this one with a bruised shoulder, so no surprises here. Harris has been more involved in the offense since Danilo Gallinari (ankle) went down, which has resulted in him producing top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. Feel free to get him active.
Mar 6 - 5:04 PM

Gary Harris (right shoulder contusion) is probable to play Sunday vs. the Mavs.

This is the first we're hearing of a shoulder injury for Harris, but with him being listed as probable, it's safe to assume that the shoulder issue is relatively minor. He's been a top-50 guy since Danilo Gallinari (ankle) went down, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for today's favorable matchup against the Mavs.
