Joe Harris says he suffered severe sprained ankle just before NBA break
Like everyone else in the NBA, Brooklyn sharpshooter Joe Harris has spent the last month in his apartment, not going out, not getting to play basketball.
Harris just might have been doing that anyway.
Harris spoke to UVA Today (he is a Virginia alumnus) and said he would have been sidelined anyway with a sprained ankle suffered against the Lakers in the final games the nets played before the league shut down (hat tip NetsDaily).
Harris added that he has been able to get into the Nets facility for treatment, but that’s it.
Harris also had time to post do this for the Nets on Instagram.
If the NBA returns for the postseason (or whatever), Harris should be good to go. The Nets will not have Kevin Durant or Kyrie Irving, and it would be a tough first-round matchup against Toronto (as currently set).
After that, Harris will be a coveted free agent in the offseason — what team couldn’t use more shooting? — and while he’s said he would like to stay in Brooklyn he will have options. And he’s about to get a nice pay raise, too.
