Dominick Harris was on Gonzaga’s bench Saturday afternoon at Kraziness at the Kennel, but it may be awhile before the sophomore guard is once again able to contribute to what the Bulldogs are building on the court.
More than a week after Harris posted an Instagram photo revealing a black boot on his right leg, Gonzaga announced the second-year player is “out indefinitely with a right foot injury.”
According to a school release, “his status will continue to be evaluated.”
Harris, who wore street clothes on Gonzaga’s bench Saturday afternoon, tweeted “I’ll be back” after Kraziness at the Kennel.
Gonzaga teammate Drew Timme said Harris made noticeable strides in the offseason and may have been on track to have a breakout year for the Bulldogs when he injured his foot.
“It made my stomach drop hearing that news,” Timme said. “He’s been working so hard and he was ready to have a phenomenal year. The amount of work he’s put in, just everything he means to this team. It was heartbreaking for me because you hate to see that happen to anybody.
“But he’s doing a great job to keep a tough face with a smile on his face around us and we’re a family, we’re here for him whenever he needs and he’s here for us so we’re just making sure he stays good and just helping him through this because it’s not easy and he’s going to be a lot stronger because of this.”
Harris was expected to be in Gonzaga’s rotation and potentially competing for a starting role this season after logging 180 minutes in 25 games as a freshman last season. The Murrieta, California, native averaged 3.0 points to go with 0.7 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.
A former four-star prospect, Harris played a season-high 20 minutes against Dixie State last season and recorded a career-best five rebounds and three assists. He had a field-goal percentage of 41.8% and connected on 39.1% of his 3-point attempts.
