Date:

Josh Harrellson (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

He's been out since Feb. 1 with his meniscus tear and has no timetable to return. Harrellson played just 9.9 minutes per game before suffering the injury this season.
Mar 3 - 5:23 PM

Josh Harrellson has a slight tear in his left meniscus and will go through a rehab session.

He's missed the last two games with knee soreness and the Pistons have pinpointed the problem. He will likely miss an extended period of time, so the Pistons might look to change around their rotation a bit to compensate. The team shouldn't have too much of a problem replacing Harrellson's 9.9 minutes per game.
Feb 7 - 6:41 PM

Josh Harrellson (knee) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday night.

He missed Monday night and his knee injury is not considered serious. Harrellson's playing just 9.9 minutes per game as the second unit center and won't have much fantasy value while Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond are healthy.
Feb 5 - 5:47 PM

Josh Harrellson (knee) will not play against the Heat on Monday night.

He has a minor knee injury and the details have not been revealed yet. Harrellson played 14.7 minutes per game in the previous three games and has helped the second unit as a stretch five. He has very little fantasy value.
Feb 3 - 6:20 PM

Josh Harrellson scored 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and two blocks in 18 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Jorts got loose tonight but that has been a rare occasion since he joined the NBA. Let's see him do it again before we pay him any attention.

The Pistons got a lift from Josh Harrellson in Saturday's win, as he came off the bench for a season-high 10 points with two 3-pointers in just 13 minutes.

Jorts even had five rebounds, two assists and three blocks for what was easily his best line of the year. Barring some drastic and unexpected change to his nine minutes per game, however, he's persona non grata in fantasy leagues.

Pistons sign free agent PF Josh Harrellson to a two-year deal.

The man known as 'Jorts' now occupies the 15th roster spot for the Pistons, meaning their offseason moves have likely come to an end. Harrellson was the MVP of the Chinese Basketball Association with 22 points and 18 rebounds per game last season, and previously played for the Heat in 2012, and the Knicks in 2011. He's never made much of a dent in the NBA, and with Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith around, that shouldn't change this year. Ignore him, but beware that he could become a factor if Drummond has more back issues this season.

The Heat will not sign Josh Harrellson to a second 10-day contract.

Miami chose instead to re-sign Jarvis Varnado while bringing Chris Andersen aboard. Jorts may latch on with another team but he's not a fantasy asset.

Heat sign C Josh Harrellson to a 10-day contract.

The team re-signs Jorts after releasing him in order to not have to guarantee his salary for the year.

Heat waive C Josh Harrellson.

One week ago Erik Spoelstra said Harrellson would be "a big factor in what [the Heat] are doing in the future." The Heat are expected to sign another big man with the available roster spot, so Spoelstra was apparently just paying lip service to Harrellson's value.
Mon, Jan 7, 2013 02:55:00 PM

Erik Spolestra said that Josh Harrellson will be a "big factor in what we're doing in the future."

Harrellson played about 18 minutes Saturday, his first action since November 11 and his only meaningful minutes of the season. Spoelstra liked what he saw and specifically mentioned how Harrellson can space the floor, but it's important to note that Udonis Haslem (shoulder) was out. Just keep an eye on Jorts from the waiver wire.

Josh Harrellson (flu-like symptoms) is active for Wednesday night's game against the Heat.

The last time Harrellson got into a game was Nov. 11, so this doesn't mean much at all.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 06:34:00 PM

Josh Harrellson is "dealing with" the flu bug.

Harrellson has not gotten into a game since November 11, telling owners all they need to know about his fantasy relevance.
Mon, Dec 24, 2012 11:55:00 AM

Josh Harrellson was inactive for the fourth time in six games on Saturday.

Harrellson's name received a decent amount of attention once the Heat signed him to space the floor, but he hasn't made an impact and is not close to sniffing fantasy relevance.
