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.
Apr 7 - 1:07 AM

Moe Harkless was unconscious on Tuesday vs. the Kings, scoring 20 points with 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He had 20 points and 14 rebounds in the second half alone. This was his second straight double-double, and the rebounds (16) and offensive rebounds (7) were both career highs. Harkless is playing some incredible ball right now and belongs in all lineups until he slows down. He's averaging 14.0 points, 8.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, shooting 52.0 percent from the field in that span.
Apr 6 - 12:39 AM

Moe Harkless posted his third double-double of the season on Sunday with 15 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes vs. the Warriors.

Harkless alternated between small forward and power forward tonight, and his emergence in the rotation has shunted Noah Vonleh from the starting lineup to near-DNP territory (he had two points in three minutes tonight). Harkless has been chipping in 12.5 points, 6.2 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks over the Blazers' past six games, with solid percentages, so he's worth a look if you need a cheap 'x-factor' free agent.
Apr 3 - 11:23 PM

Moe Harkless scored 14 points vs. the Heat on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 32 minutes.

It looks like he's going to be the starter at power forward the rest of the way, and it makes sense because he is an excellent fit with the Blazers looking to run. He was 6-of-7 from the field tonight and is averaging 12.2 points, 6.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.6 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He's on the radar in standard leagues, but the Blazers only play three times next week. They do play on Sunday vs. the Warriors, though.
Apr 3 - 12:37 AM

Coach Terry Stotts said "nothing is written in stone" with the starting lineup, but he likes what Moe Harkless has provided.

It sounds like the Blazers will stick with Harkless in the first unit. He averaged 13.0 points per game over his last four with 5.7 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.5 treys. He's still only worth a look in deep leagues for now.
Mar 30 - 4:16 PM

Moe Harkless played well in Monday's blowout win over the Kings, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting with three boards, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He's thriving as the starting PF in the Blazers' small-ball lineup, and he would've played more if the game wasn't a blowout. Harkless is averaging 13.0 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.5 steals and 0.5 3-pointers over his last four games, so he's worth a look if those numbers appeal to you.
Mar 29 - 12:46 AM

Moe Harkless scored 16 points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

Revenge game? It's all about the small-ball lineup and it's working with Harkless. He should continue to stick in that role in the next couple games, but he's still only a 14- or 16-team player to own, assuming the playoff teams in fantasy have some depth. He does get four games this week, though.
Mar 27 - 1:10 AM

Moe Harkless made his second straight start on Thursday against the Clippers, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes.

The lineup might actually stick for a few games. In the next four, the Blazers get the 76ers, Kings, Celtics and Heat. All of those lineups are good spots for Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu at the forward spots -- Harkless played down the stretch at power forward at times. He's more of a deep-league play, but will be a viable DFS punt play in a revenge game on Saturday.
Mar 25 - 1:30 AM

Moe Harkless scored 14 points in a spot start against the Mavs on Wednesday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Chances are Harkless will move back to the bench. The Blazers were thumped by Dirk Nowitzki on Sunday with 40 points, so they shifted Al-Farouq Aminu over to the four. This solid game from Harkless doesn't alter his value much going forward.
Mar 24 - 1:25 AM

Moe Harkless will start in place of Noah Vonleh against the Mavs on Wednesday.

It's likely because Dirk Nowitzki went off on Sunday and Vonleh struggled. Al-Farouq Aminu will slide over to the four and should play more. Harkless is still a risky player to use in DFS and his value doesn't change much in a matchup move.
Mar 23 - 10:00 PM

Moe Harkless was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

Terry Stotts simply opted to give his minutes to other forwards tonight. Harkless has played well in recent weeks but this isn't a total surprise, as he logged only seven minutes vs. the Bulls on Saturday. The Blazers have now won 13 of their past 15 games and Stotts isn't about to overhaul his rotations -- Harkless can be dropped in all but the deepest leagues.
Feb 28 - 9:08 PM

Moe Harkless struggled vs. the Nets on Tuesday, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one board, one assist and two blocks in 18 minutes.

He was averaging 14.4 points on 63.0 percent shooting with 7.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 26.2 minutes in his previous five games, so he fell back to earth tonight. If you picked him up in a deep league, it makes sense to give him one more chance. His upside isn't great, though.
Feb 24 - 1:31 AM

Moe Harkless finished Sunday's game with 17 points, seven rebounds, one steal, one assist, one 3-pointer, and zero rebounds in 25 minutes of action.

Harkless earned all of his minutes tonight, playing savvy ball at both ends of the court, and he's emerging as a fixture of the Blazers' rotation -- over the past five games he's averaging 14.4 points on 63.0 percent shooting, 7.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals. There's cause for skepticism, as Harkless is shooting 28.9 percent from deep this season and he's an awful FT shooter, but owners in deeper leagues should consider grabbing him in case he keeps it up.
