It looks like the Denver Nuggets will get a big boost to their lineup today as they try to avoid elimination.

Gary Harris is back.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Harris will be available to play in Game 6 today as the Nuggets try and push the series to seven games.

Harris has missed the Nuggets past 13 games with a strained hip — all part of the NBA restart — and has not appeared in a game since March 11th. Even though Harris has missed so much time, with him being healthy now the hope has to be he can give you at least 15-25 minutes in Game 6.

Denver now has the ability to start Harris — if that is what they choose to do — and have him try and lock up Donovan Mitchell. If Harris can just hold Mitchell in check, it could be the difference between the Nuggets advancing or going home.

Tip-off for Game 6 is set for 6:30 MDT tonight and will be televised nationally on TNT.
