Moe Harkless scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting on Sunday, making three 3-pointers with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes.
Harkless hasn't been a consistent fantasy option -- he hadn't scored double-digits in consecutive games since October -- but he's now scored 10+ points in three straight games. He's racking up triples (2.3) and steals (1.7) during this three-game span, and is worth adding while he's running hot. Mar 19 - 1:23 AM

Moe Harkless scored 17 points on 6-of-10 shooting Thursday to go with two triples, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.

This was a really nice bounce-back game from Harkless after Monday's 17-minute, three-point outing, and he did a much better job of being aggressive and attacking the rack. That said, he's just too inconsistent to trust in most settings. Al-Farouq Aminu finished with 11 points, nine boards, three triples, three assists and one block in 37 minutes, but he too has been wildly inconsistent this season.

Moe Harkless (knee) will play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

Coach Terry Stotts also said Harkless will start which would push Evan Turner to the second unit. The Blazers could certainly use his length on Kevin Durant, but it's unclear how many minutes Harkless will see. He's worth a look if you're targeting steals, but he's been disappointing for the most part this season.
Mar 9 - 8:21 PM

Moe Harkless (knee) was limited in practice on Thursday and is probable to play against the Warriors on Friday.

He's missed the last week for a patellar tendon injury. While Harkless was out, Shabazz Napier and Evan Turner have picked up a few extra minutes. Harkless was playing well before the injury with some good steals numbers, but most owners can take a wait-and-see approach.
Mar 8 - 4:06 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee strain) will not play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

This is the third straight game Harkless has missed due to the knee injury. Harkless has limited fantasy upside even when fully healthy. He can be left on waivers. Evan Turner and Shabazz Napier will continue to soak up extra minutes with Harkless sidelined.
Mar 6 - 8:06 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee strain) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

He said his left knee felt good at he start of his workout, but the longer he went, the "more it started to feel bad." Harkless is safe to drop in most fantasy leagues, but consider him day-to-day. Evan Turner will draw the start and is a low-end fantasy option, while Shabazz Napier could pick up some run off the bench.
Mar 5 - 9:36 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee strain) is questionable to play vs. the Lakers on Monday.

Harkless got hurt on Thursday and was forced to sit out Saturday, but his injury is being described as a "mild" strain. We should have another update on his status after the Blazers' shootaround. If he does miss more time, Evan Turner, Pat Connaughton and Shabazz Napier should all pick up a few minutes.

Moe Harkless (knee) will not play vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

He said he knee buckled in the first quarter on Thursday, but Harkless said he didn't think he'd miss much time. Evan Turner is probably the favorite to start, but Shabazz Napier is likely going to benefit most, especially with Carmelo Anthony out today.
Mar 3 - 7:40 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee) is questionable against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Blazers missed Harkless for the last three quarters on Thursday, which allowed Shabazz Napier to score 16 points in 27 minutes. Harkless is dealing with a mild patellar tendon strain and he said he could have played through it in a postseason game, so he's likely just day-to-day. Napier could be in a good spot overall, but the matchup isn't great against OKC's size.
Mar 2 - 3:49 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee) said that he thinks he'll be "fine" and that he hopes to play Saturday vs. OKC.

Harkless injured the knee in Thursday's win over the Timberwolves and was unable to return to the contest. However, he downplayed the severity of the injury after the game. "It doesn't feel like a serious pain or anything," said Harkless. "It's underneath; it's all superficial. So just sticking with the treatment and taking care of my body, I'll think I'll be fine." We should have an update on his status by Saturday morning.
Mar 2 - 11:07 AM

Moe Harkless (knee) has a patellar tendon strain.

The patellar tendon usually requires some time off, but Harkless did say after the game he would've tried to play through it in the playoffs. He was starting to play well as the starter, but he's a drop candidate. If you had to make a pickup off this news, it's probably Shabazz Napier in deeper leagues.
Mar 2 - 1:34 AM

Moe Harkless (left knee) will not return against the Wolves on Thursday.

It's unclear when Harkless suffered the injury and he checked out at his normal time with a multiple-player substitution later in the first quarter. Hopefully it's just some minor inflammation and he can return to action this weekend. While he's out, Shabazz Napier, Pat Connaughton and Evan Turner will get a few extra minutes.
Mar 1 - 11:26 PM

Moe Harkless scored nine points with three assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

He had a very big game on Friday with six steals, but Harkless was right back to his quiet ways today. It's really hard to trust coach Terry Stotts when it comes to players not named Dame Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic.
Feb 24 - 11:49 PM

Moe Harkless said nothing has changed for him in Portland except for "opportunity."

"I think it’s just being back in the rotation,’’ Harkless said. "It’s hard to not know if you are going to play, how much you are going to play, then get thrown out there for six minutes. It’s tough to play like that and be consistent.’’ After falling out of the rotation for a while, Harkless has started four games in a row with averages of 8.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.8 triples. Damian Lillard said the Blazers "are a completely different team," when Harkless plays well, but he's just someone for fantasy owners to keep an eye on for now.

Moe Harkless ended up with 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting in Friday's 118-100 victory at Sacramento.

Harkless posted the second-highest point total on the evening, but it was all Damian Lillard in this one. He dropped 50 points, and everyone else was just looking on. Harkless did well, though, hitting 2-of-3 from behind the arc while adding three rebounds, an assist and a steal with just one steal over his 26 minutes. He'll look to keep up the good work Sunday against the Jazz.
