Harris reportedly underwent an MRI on Tuesday after he was injured in the first quarter of Monday’s victory over the Raptors. The 24-year-old guard had missed the team’s previous two games ago with an ankle injury.
“The one thing I feel awful about is Gary Harris,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said earlier this week, via the Denver Post. “Definitely keep Gary in our thoughts. He’s frustrated, just getting back from an injury, and to have that, not be able to come back in tonight. We’ll see how severe the injury is and hopefully we can get him back really soon, but Gary’s such a big part of what we’re trying to do.”
Guard Malik Beasley has stepped in during Harris’ absence, averaging 12.4 points and 3.4 rebounds over the past five games.
Harris is averaging 16.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 21 games this season.
