Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris will undergo an MRI on Tuesday on the hip he injured Monday night against the Toronto Harris.

Harris' injury came in just his second game back from an ankle injury.

ESPN reports that Harris will have his MRI done in Orlando, where the Nuggets prepare for their next game against the Orlando Magic. It's not clear if Harris will be available to play against the Magic.

"He's frustrated, just getting back from an injury, and to have that (and) not be able to come back in tonight," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said postgame, according to ESPN. "We'll see how severe the injury is, and hopefully we can get him back really soon. But Gary's such a big part of what we're trying to do. Big loss."

Harris, 24, scored three points in nine minutes Monday as Denver beat the Raptors 106-103. For the season, he is averaging 16.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists through 21 games.

Harris had missed two games with the ankle injury before returning to score 27 points Friday in the Nuggets' 113-112 road win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

A 2014 first-round draft pick (No. 19 overall), Harris is in his fifth NBA season, all with Denver. He has career averages of 12.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 276 games (224 starts).
