Moe Harkless didn't play well in his return to the lineup on Monday, failing to score with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 19 minutes.
He only missed one game due to his strained calf. Harkless has cooled off a tad since Al-Farouq Aminu returned to the lineup, posting just 11th round value in his last 12 games. Some of that is due to his subpar foul shooting lately, so he's still a hold in all standard leagues. Jan 16 - 5:03 PM

Moe Harkless (left calf strain) will start on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He just finished his pre-game warmups without any setbacks, so Harkless' fantasy owners can activate him in season-long lineups. Allen Crabbe will return to the bench, but his numbers are actually better in the second unit anyways.

Moe Harkless (left calf strain) is a game-time call vs. the Wizards on Monday.

He will test his calf in the pre-game warmups, so we should have an answer within the hour. Allen Crabbe started in his place on Friday and scored seven points, so there's not a lot to like from a fantasy perspective if Harkless sits. Ed Davis (ankle) is still a game-time call.
Jan 16 - 12:35 PM

Moe Harkless (left calf strain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Wizards.

Harkless was a limited participant during Sunday's practice, and he was spotted getting some shots up afterward, so things are trending in a positive direction here. Allen Crabbe moved into the starting lineup on Friday with Harkless unavailable, but he'll head back to the bench if Harkless is able to give it a go on Monday. Check back for another update following shootaround.

Moe Harkless (calf) will not play on Friday against the Magic.

No revenge game for Mr. Harkless. The team is calling it a left calf strain and the details are not available just yet. Harkless has been cruising along with sixth-round value on the year, so he's still a hold for now. With him out, a red-hot Allen Crabbe should benefit most while Evan Turner figures to be second in line for a bump. It'll be interesting to see if Al-Farouq Aminu plays any three -- he's played basically straight four this season.
Jan 13 - 10:08 PM

Moe Harkless scored 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

The Blazers allowed just 30 points in the second half which was a season low for their opponents, and Harkless was a big reason why. He blocked three shots with one steal in 32 minutes, adding five rebounds, one assist and one triple. He's been a top-70 player in standard leagues for his ability to rack up steals, blocks and triples.
Jan 11 - 1:02 AM

Moe Harkless started and played 30 minutes to lead the Blazers in Saturday's 135-90 blowout loss to the Warriors, finishing with 17 points, one rebound, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 7-of-15 shooting.

Harkless and Damian Lillard both played 30 minutes to lead the team in Portland's worst loss to Warriors in history. Harkless has been pretty up and down lately, alternating double-digit scoring with single digits over his last four games. But over his last five, he's averaging nearly 11 points, 2.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, giving him some low-end value in most leagues.

Moe Harkless scored 15 points with four rebounds, one triple, one block and five steals in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.

The five steals were one short of his career high and he finished 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Harkless was coming off two duds with a combined 13 points in his last two games, but his ankle probably played a part in that. He's returning top-60 value in standard leagues on the season and rewarded the owners who stuck with him tonight.

Moe Harkless (ankle) scored seven points in his return to action on Saturday vs. Indiana, shooting 3-of-7 from the field with one rebound, one steal and one triple in 31 minutes.

He had to chase Paul George around the court all night, so he gets a pass here. Prior to this dud, Harkless was a top-60 player in standard leagues with averages of 13.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.7 blocks, 1.0 steal and 1.4 triples per game. He will be better against the Clippers on Monday.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 10:07:00 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) and Ed Davis will start on Saturday vs. the Pacers.

This confirms that Harkless' ankle is good to go. He is holding onto top-60 value in standard leagues on the season and should be plugged into all active lineups. Evan Turner's value takes a hit with his move back to the bench.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 06:58:00 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) will be active to face the Pacers on Saturday.

All signs are pointing to him being in the starting lineup. Coach Terry Stotts added he's not looking to change the starting lineup, so that's something to keep in mind. Evan Turner and Allen Crabbe lose some of their luster as punt plays in DFS. Harkless is a hold in almost all leagues.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 06:02:00 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) is probable to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He had some swelling in his ankle and looked hobbled during pre-game warmups on Thursday, so the extra day seems to have made a difference. His return would bump Evan Turner back to the bench while Allen Crabbe would take a hit and Jake Layman would be out of the rotation. Harkless is exceeding expectations, but he's a hold in standard leagues.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 04:17:00 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

His ankle is still swollen and his pre-game workout did not go well. Harkless suffered the injury on Wednesday and didn't play in the final 31 seconds. For tonight, expect to see Allen Crabbe in the starting lineup while Evan Turner gets a bump. Maybe coach Terry Stotts goes with a little Jake Layman to boost the bench, too.

Moe Harkless (ankle) has a noticeably swollen ankle leading up to Thursday's game against the Grizzlies.

It sounds like he's not going to play tonight. If that's the case, we'll see more minutes for Allen Crabbe and Evan Turner with Crabbe as the expected starter. We'll have another update shortly.

Moe Harkless (left ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Thursday night.

He may have suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on Wednesday and didn't play in the final 31 seconds. Harkless has played almost all small forward lately and has seen a nice scoring bump with double-digit points for 11 straight games. If he can't go, it should be Allen Crabbe moving into the starting lineup while Evan Turner would also see a bump in minutes.
