Toronto's Len Valjas, Graeme Killick of Fort McMurray, Alta., Russell Kennedy of Canmore, Alta., and Knute Johnsgaard of Whitehorse will now compete in the 4x10km.
Harvey is still scheduled to participate in the team sprint with Valjas on Wednesday along with the 50-km mass start next Saturday. He's the world champion in the 50 km freestyle.
The Saint-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., native has had two top-10 finishes at the Games. He finished eighth in the skiathlon but then failed to make it out of the qualifications in the sprint classic and placed 32nd.
Harvey had a good effort on Friday in the 15 km free and finished seventh — 35.5 seconds back of Switzerland's Dario Cologna.
