The Denver Nuggets will be holding out hope that the injury that Gary Harris suffered, and forced him to leave Monday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, isn’t a serious injury that will cause him to be sidelined for a long time.

Harris left the court after nine minutes of play in the first quarter of Monday night’s surprise win over Toronto, is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of his injury.

 

“The one thing I feel awful about is Gary Harris,” Nuggets coach Mike Malone said following the game, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. “Definitely keep Gary in our thoughts.

“He’s frustrated, just getting back from an injury, and to have that [and] not be able to come back in tonight. We’ll see how severe the injury is, and hopefully we can get him back really soon. But Gary’s such a big part of what we’re trying to do. Big loss.”

Jokic has a supported in his teammate, forward Paul Millsap.

“It’s a tough situation,” Millsap said. “On that particular play (that led to Jokic’s ejection), he got hit pretty hard. He’s just got to take a deep breath, I guess, and let it go. That’s about all I’ve got.”
