Moe Harkless was a DNP-CD on Friday against the Magic.
He just doesn't have it as coach Terry Stotts is going with Zach Collins as a backup four and plenty of three-guard lineups to move Harkless out of the mix right now. Dec 16 - 12:42 AM

Date:

Moe Harkless (quad) returned to action on Wednesday but played only nine minutes, going scoreless with two assists, one rebound and one steal.

Harkless missed the past two games, but even before the injury his role was barely worth monitoring -- he averaged 7.7 minutes in his previous three games. He hasn't scored double-digit points in a game since Oct. 28 and there's no reason to own him anywhere while guys like Al-Farouq Aminu, Evan Turner and Pat Connaughton are all healthy.
Dec 14 - 12:27 AM

Moe Harkless (quad) is available for Wednesday against the Heat.

Considering the matchup, Harkless is probably going to see most of his minutes at the four, which mean he's going to back up Al-Farouq Aminu in this spot. Of course, it's possible he's not in the rotation and his fantasy value is in the tank.
Dec 13 - 6:05 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) is probable to face the Heat on Wednesday.

The Blazers may have to use him because they may be shorthanded at the big spots. Harkless has really faded in the rotation, but he would be an option against someone like Justise Winslow. He can't be trusted in most fantasy leagues right now, though.
Dec 13 - 2:25 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Warriors.

This will be Harkless' second straight game on the sidelines, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game in Miami. Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu will be splitting Harkless' minutes, with Aminu being the preferable fantasy play. Harkless has been flat out bad this season so he's not worth rostering in most leagues.
Dec 11 - 2:29 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Warriors.

Harkless missed Saturday's game with the quad issue, which resulted in more run for Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu, and it'll be more of the same if he's out again tomorrow. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
Dec 10 - 6:43 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

The Blazers could have used him as the Rockets really like to space the floor, but now we can expect a lot of run going to Evan Fournier and Al-Farouq Aminu. Harkless is an easy drop in most leagues.
Dec 9 - 8:18 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) is questionable to face the Rockets on Saturday.

He has really missed his opportunity this year as the Blazers have gone with more three-guard lineups. If Harkless can go, he would have a decent chance at minutes against the Rockets because using him at the four makes some sense with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) out. Obviously there's little incentive to adding him.
Dec 8 - 3:27 PM

Moe Harkless (quad contusion) did not practice on Thursday.

The Blazers are off until Saturday, so hopefully this was just a precaution to get him extra rest. He's faded after a promising start to the season, with dwindling minutes, so his availability shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups.
Dec 7 - 4:54 PM

Moe Harkless went to the locker room just before halftime with a left quad contusion after starting for the Blazers on Tuesday, and is questionable to return.

Harkless was not on the bench for the start of the second half and Evan Turner started in his place. Harkless had just three points (a 3-pointer), a steal and a block in 12 minutes of action in the first half and still hadn't returned in the fourth quarter. Consider him day-to-day.
Dec 5 - 11:05 PM

Moe Harkless played six minutes with three points and one block against the Bucks on Thursday.

Al-Farouq Aminu's minutes came right from Moe. He's really missed his opportunity as the Blazers have turned to three-guard lineups a lot more. If you haven't dropped Harkless in most leagues, you probably want to do it now.
Dec 1 - 12:20 AM

Moe Harkless scored six points off the bench against the Nets on Friday with three rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes.

He shifted over to play more power forward in this game, but it likely had a lot to do with the matchup. Regardless, Harkless just hasn't been able to step up with his added opportunity, so he's a drop candidate in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 3:01 PM

Moe Harkless will be replaced in the starting lineup by Pat Connaughton Friday vs. Brooklyn.

Harkless has been a mess this entire month. Over the Blazers last 12 games, he is averaging just 4.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 25.0 minutes, while shooting 13.3 percent from downtown and 62.5 percent from the free-throw stripe. His dud on Wednesday (one point, zero rebounds and zero assists in 18 minutes) forced coach Terry Stotts' hand. Harkless will compete for minutes off the bench with Evan Turner and Shabazz Napier. If you have been holding on to Harkless, it's time to cut him loose.
Nov 24 - 11:59 AM

Moe Harkless vanished on Wednesday, finishing with just one point and no other stats to his credit in 18 minutes.

Yikes. Harkless hasn't scored double-digit points in a single game this month and his minutes are trending down in a hurry. He was benched for the final 18 minutes tonight, in favor of Evan Turner and Shabazz Napier, and there's no reason to cling to him in any format.
Nov 22 - 10:17 PM

Moe Harkless scored two points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 20 minutes vs. Denver on Monday.

Harkless was one of the most improved players in the NBA last season, but he hasn't looked quite right in 2017-18. Despite playing nearly 30 minutes per game, Harkless' season averages (prior to Monday) of 7.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 0.9 blocks, 0.9 steals and 0.7 triples just aren't getting it done for most fantasy owners.
