The two-time All-Star slipped on wet grass before leaving the game with his injury, but Nationals manager Matt Williams confirmed his active status for Saturday.
Harper has suffered multiple injuries that have limited his production in the early stage of his career.
The 22-year-old is finally putting it all together since being drafted first overall in 2010.
He suffered a knee injury in 2013 before missing a chunk of the 2014 season with a thumb injury.
The Nationals outfielder is hitting .344 with 22 home runs and 53 runs batted in, and the All-Star break is still a couple of weeks away.
Harper ranks third in the National League in each of these categories except for home runs, which he is tied for second in.
He is on pace to put up MVP-caliber numbers, but the Nationals are hoping to break out of their slump, as they have lost 14 of their last 21 games.
Fortunately, they play in a weak National League East as the New York Mets lead the division by half a game despite being only three games above .500.
