Portland has extended a qualifying offer to Moe Harkless.
Harkless will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but he's said that he would prefer to re-sign with the Trail Blazers as he "loved" playing for Terry Stotts. Harkless showed flashes during the 2015-16 season, but inconsistency remains an issue. It'll be interesting to see what kind of deal Harkless can command on the open market with the salary cap set to skyrocket to $94 million. Jun 29 - 12:33 PM

Moe Harkless said he "loved" playing for Terry Stotts.

This jibes with what Harkless previously stated regarding his desire to return to Portland. "He's done a great job of playing guys to their strength and just letting guys just go play and putting confidence in everybody. That's huge," Harkless said. Despite hoping to re-sign with the Blazers, it's not a lock that Moe Butta is back given he's established brand new appeal on the free agent market.
Jun 6 - 9:20 AM

Moe Harkless said that he would like to return to Portland next season.

The forward made a huge impact for the Blazers in the final months of the season and should get a sizable raise in restricted free agency. He averaged 8.5 points, 4.5 boards, 0.9 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.6 3-pointers in 21.6 minutes per game after the All-Star break, shooting 47.2 percent from the field. If the Blazers don't add any depth to their frontcourt, Harkless could have a nice role next season.
May 14 - 12:20 PM

Terry Stotts said that Moe Harkless (hip) will be fine for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Harkless was only on the floor for 17 minutes during Game 4, but Stotts said that the limited minutes were a byproduct of the game, and had nothing to do with the health of Harkless' bruised hip. He's not going to be a great DFS target Wednesday night.
May 10 - 6:49 PM

Moe Harkless (hip) scored eight points with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

The hip issue isn't necessarily why his minutes were down. Harkless struggled on offense while the Blazers continue to look better with Allen Crabbe at the three. Harkless' price on most DFS sites is a little high right now.
May 10 - 1:54 AM

Moe Harkless (hip) is listed as the starter for Monday night against the Warriors.

We've seen Terry Stotts pull a fast one, but chances are Harkless will be out there for the tip. Allen Crabbe and Gerald Henderson should still get minutes, especially Crabbe based on how great he was on Saturday.
May 9 - 10:24 PM

Coach Terry Stotts said Moe Harkless (hip) "is available" Monday for Game 4 against the Warriors.

Could this be a hint to the starting lineup? Whatever the case, Harkless hasn't looked great and struggled against Klay Thompson early on Saturday. It would appear Allen Crabbe might be the better DFS punt of the bunch. We'll be on the lookout for the starters, but expect Stotts to keep it a secret until close to tip.
May 9 - 8:52 PM

Moe Harkless (hip) is probable for Game 4 on Monday vs. Golden State.

Harkless reported feeling improvement in his hip, but it's not clear if he'll be limited or bumped from the starting rotation. If the Blazers decide to go in another direction, Gerald Henderson could draw the start in his place.
May 9 - 1:21 PM

Terry Stotts said that he will likely list Moe Harkless (hip) as probable for Monday's Game 4 against Golden State.

Harkless acknowledged that his bruised hip has been limiting him, but it doesn't sound like the injury will force him to miss any game-time action. That being said, Harkless only managed to get on the court for seven minutes during Saturday's Game 3 win, so he'll likely have a limited workload again during Game 4. He's not a great fantasy option.
May 8 - 3:06 PM

Moe Harkless admitted that his hip bruise is limiting him on the court.

"I think it’s limiting me," Harkless said after Saturday's Game 3 win. "I felt really slow out there today. The coaches saw that, they took me out, which I think was the right decision. Selfishly I would have liked to play. I am happy for our team, that was huge and I think that was big for myself, too." Harkless picked up the injury in Game 2 and was only able to play seven minutes in Game 3. The Blazers have had some success with Gerald Henderson and Allen Crabbe, so Harkless may not play much in Game 4 if his hip doesn't improve.
May 8 - 9:36 AM

Moe Harkless is dealing with hip pain from a bone bruise suffered in Game 2, but is expected to play on Monday.

He hasn't been playing well lately, so maybe this is why. If Harkless can't go, that would make Gerald Henderson an interesting DFS play. Harkless finished with three points, two steals and one 3-pointer.
May 7 - 11:30 PM

Moe Harkless scored 11 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

He picked up five fouls which prevented him from playing a lot of minutes, but he was solid on the defensive end and kept Klay Thompson in check until the second half. Harkless played 28 minutes in Game 1, so he's going to get plenty of burn in Game 3 even though he's shooting just 34.7 percent from the field in this series. Al-Farouq Aminu added 14 points, six boards, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes for the Blazers.
May 4 - 2:13 AM

Moe Harkless double-doubled in 33 minutes of action on Wednesday, posting 19 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 7-of-14 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line.

Harkless scored 17 of his points in the first half, unexpectedly carrying a sluggish Blazers' offense that picked up steam after halftime. Harkless gave L.A. problems with his defensive versatility and speed in transition, and he even knocked down two 3-pointers to round out a thoroughly impressive evening.
Apr 28 - 12:58 AM

Moe Harkless scored five points with three rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

It's his worst game so far this month. In his previous four April games, Harkless averaged 15.8 points, 8.8 boards, 1.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 treys on 51.8 percent from the field. The minutes were there for Harkless tonight, so expect him to get it rolling again.
Apr 10 - 1:19 AM

Moe Harkless scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, two blocks, four steals and one 3-pointer against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He's been great as the starter, averaging 13.2 points, 7.5 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 treys in his previous 11 starts this year. Harkless will be starting the rest of the way and is worth owning in standard leagues. In other news, Harkless announced on Twitter he's selling "How Could You Be So Harkless" T-shirts.
