Nuggets guard Gary Harris (shoulder) said if things go well this week in practice he will play on Friday against the Pelicans.
Harris has missed the last two games, but sounds as though he has a good shot to return Friday. He should reclaim his starting role from Will Barton, but Barton will still retain most of his value as a key bench piece for the Nuggets. Jamal Murray will take the biggest hit after averaging 36.5 minutes per game for the two games Harris missed compared to his season average of 25.9.
#Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he would be surprised if Gary Harris (shoulder) isn’t available for Friday’s game vs New Orleans
