ESPN ‘s lead NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed today that Orlando Magic guard Gary Harris, 28, has suffered a left knee injury and is currently assessing the severity of the injury. Make a return schedule, and in severe cases, you may face surgery and long-term treatment options.
Harris has been with the Denver Nuggets since 2014, but the Nuggets traded him to the Magic last season after only playing 38 games due to injury in 2020. Harris averaged 11.1 points, 2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1 steal and 0.1 block in 28.4 minutes in 61 games last season. He shot 38.4 percent from 3-point range and 43.4 percent from the field.
The Magic also made Harris one of the core veterans of the rebuilding roster, and signed him to a two-year, $26 million extension during the offseason. But now that the defender has suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee, the medical team will need to further evaluate and confirm the location and extent of the injury. If surgery is involved, the date of Harris’ return will be relatively delayed, which is expected to take time. Recovery in a few months, or longer.
The team may also waive Harris after confirming the extent of his injury and the timetable for his return, but the Magic have yet to add the veteran to the trade block at this stage.
