Bennett said Monday during a weekly teleconference that Harris hurt the hand during Saturday’s 70-52 loss at then-No. 5 North Carolina. Harris scored eight points and played 35 minutes against the Tar Heels. He is the second-leading scorer (12.5 ppg) for No. 22 Virginia heading into Tuesday night’s game at Clemson.
The injury is not on his shooting hand and Bennett said Harris could play with protective padding.
The Cavaliers are already thin off the bench as starting center Assane Sene is expected to miss several more weeks after having ankle surgery. Forward James Johnson and guard KT Harrell transferred out of the program in December.
