Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris is being considered on a day-to-day basis after an MRI confirmed a hip injury, coach Michael Malone said on Wednesday.
He was injured on Monday night against the Toronto Raptors in just his second game back from an ankle injury and ruled out of Wednesday’s game at the Orlando Magic, which the Nuggets won 124-118 in overtime.
The Nuggets have three games in four nights starting with Friday night’s road game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Harris, 24, scored three points in nine minutes on Monday as Denver beat the Raptors 106-103.
