OKLAHOMA CITY — Nuggets leading scorer Gary Harris will miss his seventh consecutive game with a right knee sprain/strain when Denver visits the Thunder on Friday night. Harris, who is averaging 17.7 points per game while shooting 48.6 percent from the floor and 39.9 percent from 3-point range, sustained the injury when he landed awkwardly on his right leg after being fouled on a made dunk late in the fourth quarter of a March 15 home win against Detroit. Harris has gone through shooting work and other rehab exercises during shootarounds and prior to the recent games on this road trip, which is the longest of the season, but Malone has expressed concern about Harris’ inability to run consistently. Will Barton, who has averaged 17.3 points 3.8 rebounds and three assists per game on Denver’s road trip, has started in Harris’ place the past six games. Denver entered Thursday’s action in 10th place in the Western Conference playoff standings — two games behind eighth-place Utah and one game behind the ninth-place Clippers.
