Montrezl Harrell scored 15 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.
He was a somewhat useful pickup in the Chris Paul trade and proved he can be a solid rotation player. Harrell also played two positions up front, but he still has some holes on offense. Apr 12 - 12:51 AM

Montrezl Harrell (shoulder) is available to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

The Clippers wait until the last minute and we don't know much besides this. We could still see a decent amount of Boban Marjanovic.
Apr 11 - 10:31 PM

Montrezl Harrell (left shoulder strain) is questionable for Wednesday against the Lakers.

He logged a whopping 33 minutes on Monday night, so he likely sustained the injury there. If Harrell somehow can't go, the NBA world could get a little season-finale treat with more Boban Marjanovic. Free Boban.
Apr 11 - 2:19 PM

Montrezl Harrell hit 7-of-15 shots off the bench for 15 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and three blocks in 33 minutes of Monday's loss.

The Clippers have been eliminated from the playoffs so there's a chance we could get a heavy dose of Harrell and Boban Marjanovic in Wednesday's finale against the Lakers. Harrell looks like almost a must-add player for the finale.
Apr 10 - 12:57 AM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Montrezl Harrell has surprised him this season.

"He’s been terrific. That was a find for us. He just does more things than we knew," Rivers said. "He’s a scoring post guy. We thought he was just an energy guy. It’s nice when you get lucky, and that was good for us." He’s averaging 10.9 points on 64.4 percent shooting in just 16.7 minutes per game and has been one of the most efficient big men in the NBA. If DeAndre Jordan leaves this summer, Harrell's value could really take off.
Apr 9 - 10:37 AM

Montrezl Harrell scored 17 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

He was playing well in the first half, started at power forward in the third quarter, and picked up minutes at center as the game was slipping away. Harrell is kind of hot over his last three with 17.3 points per game in that span, so he should be able to get minutes in the low 20s. The Clippers are also dangerously close to being eliminated, so Harrell could find himself getting big minutes if the Clippers do sit DeAndre Jordan.
Apr 5 - 11:51 PM

Montrezl Harrell made the second 3-pointer of his career on Sunday, going 9-of-12 from the field for 19 points with three rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes.

Harrell's efficiency and per-minute scoring are incredible, and his strong play could create problems for L.A. since he's headed into restricted free agency. He continues to log around 18-22 minutes per game as the Clippers chase a playoff berth, so keep using him if you're in search of points and FG%.
Apr 1 - 6:33 PM

Montrezl Harrell racked up 10 points, six rebounds and three assists in just 18 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Wednesday.

Before the game, coaches and teammates praised the play of both Harrell and Boban Marjanovic -- Lou Williams called them a "dynamic duo." Boban didn't play until garbage time tonight, but Harrell kept up his extremely efficient play with a 4-of-4 mark from the field. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better FG% specialist, although he doesn't offer much else while DeAndre Jordan is healthy.

Montrezl Harrell posted 19 points in just 19 minutes off the bench on Sunday against the Raptors.

Harrell was a very efficient 9-of-12 from the free-throw line while grabbing six rebounds in his limited minutes. He also turned it over just once with a solid plus-12 rating. Harrell has been outstanding over the past three outings, averaging 16.0 points with 4.0 rebounds while posting a solid 73.3 percent (22-of-30) from the field during the impressive span.
Mar 25 - 8:51 PM

Montrezl Harrell scored 16 points with three rebounds in 19 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

The minutes were up from 11 on Wednesday and Harrell did get some key minutes late, even with the Clippers trailing. He's still be productive over his last five with only 17.8 minutes, averaging 13.4 points, 4.0 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks. He's more of a stream than someone to count on most nights.
Mar 23 - 9:33 PM

Montrezl Harrell scored 24 points on Sunday, making 9-of-14 field goals and 6-of-10 free throws with seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in just 20 minutes.

Harrell had a game-high 38.3% usage rate tonight and he's now scored double-digit points in 11 out of 12 games since the All-Star break. He shredded the Blazers' backup big men and the supporting stats were a welcome boost (zero steals or blocks in his previous three games). Fantasy owners should also beware his toxic free-throw percentages -- he's at a career-high 64.8% this season, and opponents are increasingly hacking him when he gets the ball in the paint.
Mar 19 - 1:25 AM

Montrezl Harrell made the most of his 13 minutes on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting, adding five rebounds and two turnovers with an 0-of-2 mark at the line.

Harrell continues to be a dynamo for field-goal percentages, and he ranks 4th among qualifying players at 63.4% this season. He came in averaging a mere 4.5 attempts in his previous two games, though, with almost no supporting stats, and it's hard to know what you're going to get on a night-to-night basis. If you just need a category-specific boost, though, he's hard to beat.
Mar 15 - 10:47 PM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers had high praise for Montrezl Harrell.

"You never know a guy until you coach a guy. When we got him, we looked at him as an energy guy, a guy that can play defense," Rivers said. "That’s what he did everywhere he’s been. And then every practice he gets in, he keeps scoring. And scoring. And then we started thinking, ‘Maybe he can score a little bit.’ He’s been better than that. He’s been great." Harrell has been a scoring machine and is fourth in the NBA in true shooting percentage, behind only Stephen Curry, DeAndre Jordan, and Clint Capela. He's averaging 16.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 blocks over his last 10 games and the Clippers play four times in each of the next three weeks, making him a solid pickup.
Mar 12 - 10:15 AM

Montrezl Harrell scored 20 points in 20 minutes off the bench in Friday's 116-102 victory against the Cavaliers.

Harrell was a very efficient 8-of-13 from the field while going 4-of-5 from the free-throw stripe while adding five rebounds and a blocked shot. He also turned in a very nice plus-12 rating. Harrell has back-to-back games with 20 or more points for the first time in his career. He'll look to make it three games in a row on Saturday night against the Magic. Consider him in all deeper fantasy leagues and as a low-cost DFS option while running hot.
Mar 10 - 2:43 AM

Montrezl Harrell dropped a season-high 26 points vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, hitting 11-of-17 shots and 4-of-6 free throws in 31 minutes.

He started the second half in place of Wes Johnson and finished with a +/- rating of +16 in the 5-point loss, adding eight rebounds, two assists and one steal. This was the third-highest scoring game of his career and Harrell has been very productive recently, averaging 18.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 steals in 23.0 minutes over his last five. If Harrell moves into the starting lineup (Tobias Harris could slide to SF) or continues to see minutes in the 20s, he'll be worth an add if you can live with his free throw shooting.
