Orlando Magic shooting guard Gary Harris has suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and his timetable to return is unknown. The veteran shooting guard is set to undergo further evaluation so the team can further asses the timetable for his return. Harris agreed to a two-year contract extension in June worth $26 million. Before being traded to the Orlando Magic, Harris spent his previous NBA seasons with the Denver Nuggets. He is currently one of the more experienced players on the Magic roster and his leadership this season is vital to the team.

Last season as a member of the Orlando Magic, Gary Harris averaged 11.1 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and one steal per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 43.4 percent and a three-point percentage of 38.4 percent. Harris has established himself as a talented role player and veteran for an NBA team with a lot of young and promising youth. While this upcoming season may not include many wins it will hopefully include much-needed development for the team’s prospects.
The recovery time for a meniscus tear can vary on several things and further evaluation will bring more things to light. After that, the team will put a plan together for his return to the court. We here at Def Pen Sports hope for a quick recovery and return to the court for Gary Harris.
