Harrison Wind: Even though the Nuggets will likely have their opening night starting five active in Dallas on Friday, Michael Malone said today that he’ll ease Gary Harris back into the rotation. Don’t be surprised if Malik Beasley continues to start for now.

More on Gary Harris Injury

Chris Dempsey: Gary Harris (adductor), meanwhile, will not play again until after the All Star break. Also, Tyler Lydon is out of the game as he is in concussion protocol. #Nuggets
Harrison Wind: Another note from Nuggets practice: Michael Malone said keeping Gary Harris out until after the All-Star break is “probably the most prudent decision to make.” Harris has missed Denver’s last 5 games with an adductor strain. He’s already been ruled out of Monday’s game vs. Miami.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets will only have two of their regular starters (Barton, Jokic) for tonight’s game vs Pistons. Gary Harris, Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap are all out. I’d expect Monte Morris and Malik Beasley to continue to start while minutes are available for reserve guard Brandon Goodwin.
Harrison Wind: Gary Harris and Jamal Murray are both out for the Nuggets’ matchup tonight in Minnesota. Denver is hopeful that Murray can return during its four-game road trip which begins this evening.
Duvalier Johnson: Good and bad news. Will Barton is in tonight after missing since the second game of the season. Gary Harris and Trey Lyles however are out against the Suns. #Nuggets
Duvalier Johnson: Gary Harris makes his return tonight versus the Knicks. #Nuggets
Harrison Wind: Wouldn’t be surprised if Gary Harris, who's missed Denver’s last 11 games, returns tonight against the Knicks. Nuggets have been able to go 7-4 over that span. "I think it’s remarkable,” Michael Malone said about how his team has battled through injuries to 3 starters this year.
Michael Singer: Gary Harris has been upgraded to questionable for tomorrow vs. Knicks. Malone said he expects him back soon, with Barton to follow shortly thereafter.
Injured Nuggets Gary Harris (hip) and Paul Millsap (fractured toe) spoke with the media Thursday for the first time since their respective injuries, and both are getting close to returning. Harris may be the first to come off the injury report, but both participated in full-court runs Thursday, one day after the Nuggets fell 111-103 at San Antonio. Neither will be available for Friday’s home game against the Spurs.
“To have them slowly integrating back into practice is great,” said Nuggets coach Michael Malone. “When they’re able to return, I want those guys to know, it’s not like I expect Gary, who I think will be back before anybody, to come in and save the day. Maybe it’s easier for me to bring him off the bench, ease him back into it. These guys have been out for a while.”
Chris Dempsey: The #Nuggets have announced that Paul Millsap has a fracture in his right big toe. He was injured last night’s in Charlotte. Gary Harris (hip), meanwhile, will be evaluated on a week to week basis. The Nuggets are now down 3 of their 5 starters going into tonight’s game at ATL.
Chris Dempsey: Gary Harris (hip) will not play in tomorrow’s game at Orlando, the team has announced
Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris will get an MRI on Tuesday after exiting Monday's 106-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors with a groin injury. Harris scored three points in nine minutes before exiting late in the first quarter with the injury. He didn't return to the game.
Kerry Eggers: Nuggets coach Mike Malone on G Gary Harris (ankle): “He looked really good in shootaround. I’ll wait to get the final word, but he’s been able to have good treatment days. He was able to move today. He said he felt good so hopefully he’s able to play. I’m optimistic he will play"
Duvalier Johnson: Torrey Craig is starting in place of Gary Harris who is out tonight against the #Lakers.

Harrison Wind: Also hearing the Nuggets are hopeful that Gary Harris (right knee sprain/strain) will return tonight vs. Blazers. He’s missed Denver’s past 11 games and Denver went 7-4 without him. The Nuggets didn’t have his services for the entirety of their recent seven-game road trip.
Nuggets’ second-leading scorer Gary Harris, who has missed the past 11 games with a right knee sprain/strain, has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable play in Monday’s home finale against Portland on the team’s official injury report released Monday morning. Harris, who is averaging 17.7 points and 1.8 steals per game while shooting 39.9 percent from 3-point range, sustained the injury when he landed awkwardly on his right leg after being fouled on a made dunk late in the fourth quarter of a March 15 home win against Detroit. The timetable for his return has consistently been pushed back throughout his recovery.

Gina Mizell: No surprise, but #Nuggets Gary Harris (knee) is officially listed as OUT for tomorrow's game at the Clippers. Michael Malone said last night that Monday vs. Portland was likely "best-case sceanrio" for Harris to return, though that timetable has already moved back several times.
Gina Mizell: Michael Malone now says that Gary Harris (right knee) might not play for another week or so. Obviously running out of time in the regular season. #Nuggets
Thankfully, the Basketball Gods were kind to Harris and the Nuggets. A source within the Nuggets organization has told Mile High Sports that Harris’ MRI only showed a small sprain or strain in a small ligament in his knee.
Pair that with Harris’ 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; “it’s the best news we could have hoped for”.
Harrison Wind: Gary Harris isn’t sure what his injury is, says knee is a little sore. Not sure if he’ll play Saturday in Memphis. MRI tomorrow will determine his status. He limped out of the locker room under his own power.
Harrison Wind: [Gary Harris will] go for an MRI tomorrow. Paul Millsap said the Nuggets’ locker room is “very concerned.”
Harrison Wind: Nuggets coach Michael Malone says Gary Harris (ankle) will play tonight. Hurt it last game vs Spurs.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets will try to keep Gary Harris’ minutes in the low 30’s tonight vs Mavs. He’s still bothered by a right foot injury. Malone says he went over his minutes limit vs Knicks.
Gina Mizell: Gary Harris (elbow contusion) said he was able to go through parts of shootaround and it’ll be determined after pregame warm-ups if he’s able to go against Minnesota. Said neck is still sore after nasty fall in OKC but that he’s NOT going through concussion protocol. #Nuggets
Harrison Wind: Nuggets listing Gary Harris (right shoulder soreness) as questionable for Friday vs NOLA. Denver and head coach Michael Malone expect Harris to play.

Robert Williams not available in potential trade involving Kevin Durant

There’s good reason for pessimism, Durant’s ultimatum to Nets owner Joe Tsai did not light a fire under trade talks. If anything, it made it far less likely a deal gets done in the short term. — why would Boston improve its offer now? It robbed the Nets of leverage. For example, Brooklyn was trying to get Boston to put Smart in the trade, but why would they even consider it now? That said, even without Smart (or Robert Williams III, sources told NBC Sports he is not available), a Celtics offer with Jaylen Brown may be the best one the Nets will see.
Ric Bucher: I’ve been assured that this is correct in spite of another report that says it never happened. And that’s as far as I’ll go with that, too. I’m not going to punch down. Ben Simmons was in a group chat with some of the other teams players. And on it, they asked Ben if he was playing in game four. And not only did he not answer, he dropped out of the chat. Now, as I said, there’s another reporter out there who suggested the event never happened. I’m well aware that that reporter has, let’s say he has vested interests in painting things a certain way. And again, I will leave it at that his comments prompted me to go back and double check with my source. And that source insists that it did indeed happen, and explain why someone might report it another way. So I’m sticking with it.
Patrick Beverley is not one to whine about getting moved from one team to another. The Utah Jazz guard recently addressed claims from fans about how the Minnesota Timberwolves “did him wrong when in fact that sentiment goes completely against how he views and interprets his offseason fate. Here’s Patrick Beverley going full Jay-Z, referencing the GOAT’s “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man” bar in explaining why he is thankful to the Timberwolves franchise.
Still, Caleb Canales’ decision to leave the NBA and coach in Mexico is not without risk. Broadening his experience on an international stage could help him get back to the league and to the job of his dreams, but his leap of faith could also be ignored. Despite a growing stable of foreign-born superstars and the NBA’s expansion to new markets overseas, the league has been slow to embrace coaches with international experience. European champions like David Blatt and Igor Kokoskov came and went last decade, as did successful foreign-born assistants like Etore Messina. “The coaching side, you always have to be ready to adapt and adjust,” Canales says.
While skepticism may remain in some NBA circles regarding the value of international coaching experience, there’s no doubt the league is putting effort in to diversify its coaching ranks overall. As of the 2022 offseason, half the league is led by Black head coaches. Nash and Kerr were born outside the U.S., and Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra is Filipino-American. Canales credits the work of David Fogel, executive director of the National Basketball Coaches Association, and Karen Marrero, its director of communications, for things improving over the last few seasons. “They’ve been so creative, and they’ve been so willing to help us, as coaches,” he stresses, highlighting the coaching profiles as well as a newly deployed coaches database the NBCA has set up to assist teams in finding and hiring talent outside the same small coaching pool.
