Gary Harris will miss at least four weeks because of the injury to his right foot, Christopher Dempsey of The Denver Post reports. Harris suffered the foot injury last weekend in a loss to the Pistons and it was reported at the time that the shooting guard could miss up to four weeks, so he’ll likely be out of the lineup longer than expected.
Dempsey adds that Harris won’t need surgery. Instead, he will receive daily treatment on his foot in order for it to heal. Harris missed the Nuggets’ last two games because of the injury and he missed the first four games of the season because of groin injury he suffered during the preseason.
Harris missed a total of six games last season and appeared to be elevating his game to new levels. He took nearly four shots from behind the arc per game and made 35,4% of them. This season, in five games played, his numbers were slightly down, but he was sporting a career-high 13.9 player efficiency rating.
