Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris is planning a return to the lineup for Game 6 against the Utah Jazz.

Harris hasn’t played any games in the NBA restart, due to a right hip muscle strain he suffered shortly after arriving in Orlando.

He has made significant progress in recent workouts, Adrian Wojnarowski notes.

Harris hasn’t played a game in over five months, as he last played on March 11, before the NBA hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Having the 25-year-old back in the lineup will be a boost to a Nuggets defense that has struggled in the series against the Jazz.

The Nuggets trail 3-2 and must win Game 6 to keep their playoff hopes alive.
