All directions are going ideally for Joe Harris, as he is set to be ready for the Brooklyn Nets’ training camp after months of ankle recovery.
As told by Mark Bartelstein, Harris’ agent, on Brian Lewis of the New York Post, the sharpshooter is “doing great” and expected to be ready at “100 percent” in late September for the Nets.
Bartelstein further confirmed that Harris is already cleared in playing five-on-five games and scrimmages.
“Yes. He’s all good. He’s all good,” Bartelstein said. “He’s healthy. He’s in great place. He’s ready to go for sure.”
Harris suffered from major ankle issues which required him to have multiple surgeries. He was only limited to 14 games after his arthroscopic surgery in November had a setback, forcing him to enter a second procedure in March that made him unavailable for the rest of Brooklyn’s 2021-2022 campaign.
His unavailability piled up on the franchise’s embattled season, but with a new one looming to appear, Harris’ production and presence will truly be needed in that ongoing chase for a title.
In the past six seasons wearing the Nets gear, the 31-year-old Harris has been a steady contributor on the offensive end, averaging 12.4 points, 4.0 boards and an assist in 48.6 percent shooting and an impressive 44.2 percent shooting mark from three across 358 games.
