NBA.com staff report

The Denver Nuggets are staying in the thick of the Western Conference playoff chase with wins in eight of their last 11 and six straight wins overall. However, they are in a fight with four other teams (the Minnesota Timberwolves, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans) to just make the playoffs.

Denver has made do without Gary Harris, one of its best scorers/playmakers, over the last 11 games. Harris has been out with a right knee sprain since March 15 (Mar. 16, PHL time), but the Nuggets received good news on his injury today as his status has been upgraded to questionable against the Portland Trail Blazers today and he's likely to play, according to media reports.

Harris' move to questionable comes just hours after the team upgraded him from out to doubtful, writes Gina Mizell of The Denver Post.
