Harris and guard Michael Porter were near a scramble for a loose ball during the first half against Lamar on Dec. 3 when they ran into each other. Harris lay motionless for several minutes and spent a night in the hospital. He wore a neck brace for more than a week as a precaution.
The junior received a warm welcome from fans at Freedom Hall on Friday during the team's open practice before Saturday's game against Appalachian State. Harris is averaging 8.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in seven games this season.
Coach Billy Gillispie said he'll wait until Saturday to decide if Harris is healthy enough to play against the Mountaineers.
