Brooklyn Nets forward Joe Harris has hit a snag in his rehab from ankle surgery.

"He's had some flare-ups," Nets head coach Steve Nash told reporters Sunday, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "I'm reluctant to talk about it because I'm not a doctor so I don't want to say the wrong thing, but he's definitely had some flare-ups and little setbacks here and there - but continuing to stay positive and work at his rehab and try to overcome it."

Harris underwent arthroscopic surgery last November to remove a "loose body" in his left ankle. He was originally slated to miss four-to-eight weeks.

The Nets sharpshooter last played Nov. 14 against the Oklahoma City Thunder when he sprained his ankle. Harris missed the next six contests before going under the knife.

"I think he is progressing," Nash said. "But not to where he's ready to practice or anything. So, he's getting on the court a little bit and continuing to work through the rehab, but he's not ready for his high-intensity stuff yet."

Harris is averaging 11.3 points and shooting a sizzling 46.6% from deep over 14 appearances this season. He's led the Association in 3-point shooting percentage twice and is Brooklyn's all-time leader in threes made.
