Neither will be available for Fridayâs home game against the Spurs.
âTo have them slowly integrating back into practice is great,â said Nuggets coach Michael Malone. âWhen theyâre able to return, I want those guys to know, itâs not like I expect Gary, who I think will be back before anybody, to come in and save the day. Maybe itâs easier for me to bring him off the bench, ease him back into it. These guys have been out for a while.â

Thankfully, the Basketball Gods were kind to Harris and the Nuggets. A source within the Nuggets organization has told Mile High Sports that Harrisâ MRI only showed a small sprain or strain in a small ligament in his knee.
Pair that with Harrisâ X-ray results coming back negative and it seems as if the Nuggets and Harris both dodged quite the bullet. Two separate sources told Mile High Sports the exact same thing; âitâs the best news we could have hoped forâ.

Nuggets guard Gary Harris was in a walking boot Friday, in these early days of a right foot injury that he suffered last Saturday against Detroit. And heâll be out for a while, as some details get clearer about his expected time away from the team. Harrisâ timeline is at least four weeks out, not up to four weeks, according to league sources. And he wonât need surgery, so itâs a situation where heâll receive daily treatment in order to get well.
Chris Dempsey: Gary Harris (foot) could be out up to 4 weeks, #Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. Big big blow.
The issue is getting both players through a full practice with no setbacks. To this point, both Harris and Arthur have gone through most of a couple of recent practices but not all of them. Until they do, Nuggets coach Michael Malone said heâll be hesitant at best about putting them in the game. Malone on Harris: âItâs good to see him on the court (Friday). And as is always the case, how does he feel the next day. Heâs just not there yet. So heâs still out.â
âI wanted to play today, I wanted to,â he said. âSo weâll just see. I want to get back out there as soon as possible, especially after practicing Tuesday. I felt pretty good. Weâll see how it goes. I trust (the training staff), theyâre going to make sure Iâm right. I want to come back, be 100 percent and be good to go.â Meanwhile, Arthur has experienced a couple of small setbacks in his recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery. He experienced some swelling in the knee after Mondayâs practice and had a treatment day on Tuesday. âI think Iâm day-by-day right now,â Arthur said.
Optimistic estimates on his return by Nuggets coach Michael Malone put Harrisâ return right around the start of the regular season on Oct. 26. Harris wouldnât rule it out, but wasnât confirming that as a target date, either. âIâm just going day by day, just trying to get better each day,â Harris said. âThatâs two weeks down the road: Weâll see. Iâm just trying to get better each day.â

For something like a partial ACL tear, diagnosing that was important. What are the differences between knee sprains that affect the ACL ligament? DR. NGUYEN: So the grading scale is more of a guideline. Grade ones and grade threes are relatively straightforward in terms of treatment. The grade ones, usually non-operative, the grade threes are typically operative for elite athletes. Basketball players and soccer players, football players, are required to do a lot of cutting and pivoting.
