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.
Denver getting a boost today: Guard Gary Harris (strained hip) is planning a return to the Nuggets lineup for Game 6 vs. Utah, sources tell ESPN. Harris has been sidelined for the entire restart, but made significant progress in recent workouts. Jazz lead series, 3-2.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 30, 2020
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.
