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. Dec 8 - 7:08 PM

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.
Dec 8 - 6:50 PM

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.
Dec 8 - 2:47 PM

Moe Harkless scored 11 points against the Bucks on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, four steals, four fouls, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

That's a lot of fours and he missed four attempts from deep, too. Despite Al-Farouq Aminu returning, Harkless' minutes haven't fallen off with 31.5 over his last two. He was playing some minutes at the four earlier this season, but he's successfully shifted to play almost straight three now. Harkless is exceeding most expectations and is a bit of a sell high based on performance alone, but his playing time looks safe and is a hold in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:03 PM

Moe Harkless scored 17 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

He is really hitting his stride over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 6.0 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.6 treys on 55.7 percent from the field and 85.7 percent from the line. It'll be interesting to see how Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) affects Harkless, who has done very well with his extra minutes at the four. Regardless, Harkless' owners should give him plenty of leash right now.
Dec 4 - 1:34 AM

Moe Harkless matched his season-high 23 points during a win over the Pacers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

His three treys matched his season high and that's really been the story for Harkless. On the season, he's now made 39.5 percent from deep, which is vastly improved from his 27.9 percent last year and 17.9 in 2014-15. Harkless isn't playing power forward as much these days, but he's clearly locked up his role of around 30 minutes even when Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) comes back. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Dec 1 - 1:29 AM

Moe Harkless scored 19 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one triple in 28 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

This was his first double-double of the season and the fourth time that he's scored 19 or more points. He was 8-of-13 from the field, but only hit 2-of-4 from the line with four turnovers. His numbers don't jump off the screen, but he's returning top-75 value in standard leagues with averages of 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.4 triples per game.
Nov 26 - 12:59 AM

Moe Harkless scored 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, one block, one steal and one triple in 34 minutes against the Knicks on Tuesday.

He's now scored in double digits in four straight games and has bumped his season averages up to 11.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.4 treys on 49.0 percent shooting from the field. He's returning 8th-round value in standard leagues and usually plays more than 30 minutes per night.
Nov 22 - 10:58 PM

Moe Harkless started at power forward on Thursday and hit 8-of-12 shots and a season-high three 3-pointers for 19 points, six boards and nothing else in a 126-109 loss to the Rockets.

One look at his game log and you'll soon realize just how inconsistent Harkless has been this season. He's scored 19, 5, 17, 8, 8, 20, 18 and 9 points in each of his last eight games, while the minutes are consistent at about 31 a night. He came into this one averaging 11.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers in November, making him a borderline player to own in 12-team leagues. But there is upside and if you have someone you've been wanting to cut, grabbing him and taking a wait-and-see approach with Harkless makes sense.
Nov 17 - 10:22 PM

Moe Harkless hit just 2-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, eight rebounds, three steals and a block in 29 minutes of Tuesday's blowout 113-88 loss to the Bulls.

Harkless has been pretty bad in three of his last four games, but the potential is still there, especially with Al-Farouq Aminu out. He's averaging 11.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games, so he's worth hanging onto if you own him. He's just been a very inconsistent scorer for the Blazers.
Nov 16 - 12:28 AM

Maurice Harkless drained 6-of-11 field goals to finish Sunday's home victory with 17 points, two 3-pointers, six boards, two blocks and zero turnovers in 32 minutes.

Harkless has now made multiple 3-pointers in five straight games, whereas his previous career best was two games, which speaks volumes about both his personal improvement and his role on this Blazers team. Thanks to his across-the-board value, he's emerged as a top-100 value with a 30-minute role as a combo forward in Portland.
Nov 14 - 12:37 AM

Moe Harkless played 36 minutes against the Kings on Friday with eight points, eight rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers.

Thanks to his positional flexibility, Harkless is now looking at a role in the mid 30s. He's also got into a good rhythm as a shooter this season, turning in a 54.3 effective field goal percentage on his 46 jumpers this season. Plus, he's somehow at 85.7 percent at the line. He's doing enough to be picked up in standard leagues with seventh-round value to date this season.
Nov 12 - 2:51 AM

Moe Harkless scored 20 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

He was an efficient 8-of-11 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, and he continues to outplay both Allen Crabbe and Evan Turner. Harkless is simply producing right now and is averaging 13.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games on 50.9 percent shooting. He's going to post some duds as well, but he's a nice pickup if you don't mind the ups and downs.
Nov 9 - 1:00 AM

Moe Harkless scored 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting Sunday to go with seven boards, two 3-pointers, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

If only he could do this consistently. In Harkless' past four games he has scored 18, nine, 13 and six points, and his inability to put forth a consistent effort has him clinging to late-round value on the year with averages of 10.9 points, 1.1 triples, 0.7 steals and 0.7 blocks per contest on 47.8 percent shooting. He doesn't really hurt you anywhere, but he also does very little for you on the night's he's off. He's more of a deep league guy.
Nov 6 - 6:38 PM

Moe Harkless scored 13 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

He played 14 minutes at power forward during this game with coach Terry Stotts going small. Last year, Harkless was at the mercy of Stotts due to not having a consistent role, but he's played 31.3 minutes per game in the last four -- one game went to garbage time, too. Harkless' upside isn't too high, so he's more of a 14-team guy. He's also in play in DFS against smaller teams.
