Harris apparently suffered the injury in a loss to the Pistons on Saturday night. He had 13 points and four assists in 28 minutes against Detroit but missed the 112-105 loss to the Trail Blazers the following evening. The Michigan State product sat out the first four games this season while recovering from a groin injury.
He was averaging 10.8 points and 2.4 assists over five games. Harris started all 76 games he played last season, averaging 12.3 points and 1.9 assists while shooting a healthy 46.9% from the field and 35.4% on 3-point attempts.
Denver’s backcourt is already depleted with Will Barton missing the last seven games because of an ankle injury. Jameer Nelson started against Portland, while rookie Jamal Murray played 28 minutes off the bench.
