Montrezl Harrell (illness) is available to play vs. the Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Terrence Jones is out with a concussion so Harrell could easily emerge as a part of the Rockets' rotation, though he's still an unappealing option in all formats.
Feb 5 - 5:46 PM

Montrezl Harrell (illness) will miss Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

Harrell is a negligible part of the rotation in Houston, so his absence will go largely unnoticed in fantasy hoops. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 3 - 1:15 PM

Montrezl Harrell (illness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

The rookie isn't a consistent part of the rotation, and that likely won't change unless the Rockets trade Terrence Jones. Leave Harrell on the wire.
Feb 2 - 7:18 PM

Montrezl Harrell (illness) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. Miami.

Harrell isn't a major part of the rotation in Houston, so his absence doesn't mean much at all in fantasy hoops. If Harrell and Clint Capela (hip) can't play Tuesday, Terrence Jones could see his playing time in the lower-20s with Dwight Howard (suspension) also unavailable vs. Miami.

The Rockets recalled Montrezl Harrell and K.J. McDaniels from the D-League.

Neither player is a consistent part of the rotation and that isn't likely to change. Leave them on the wire.

Montrezl Harrell was a DNP-CD on Friday.

The arrival of Josh Smith bumped him from the rotation. Harrell can be dropped in all re-draft leagues.

Montrezl Harrell (shoulder) will play against the Bucks on Friday.

He's played poorly lately, so it'll be interesting to see where he fits in for tonight. Plus, Josh Smith's arrival could bump him from the rotation.
Jan 22 - 6:55 PM

Montrezl Harrell (right shoulder contusion) participated in the morning shootaround and is questionable to face the Bucks on Friday.

Dwight Howard (ankle) has already been ruled out and Josh Smith's availability is in question, so Harrell could be looking at decent minutes behind Terrence Jones and Clint Capela. Regardless, he still isn't an option in almost any league and the trade for Smith all but solidifies that Harrell is going to be an afterthought in fantasy leagues.

Montrezl Harrell (right shoulder contusion) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

With Dwight Howard (ankle) already having been ruled out for Friday's game, Clint Capela and Terrence Jones could be forced into heavy minutes Friday night if Harrell isn't able to give it a go. Trevor Ariza would also spend some extended time at the four-spot. We should have another update on Harrell following Friday morning's shootaround.

Montrezl Harrell took advantage of extended minutes during garbage time on Sunday, finishing with 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting, eight rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

The rookie also committed four personal fouls and he's not an appealing option outside of dynasty leagues. On a per-36-minute basis, the Louisville product is averaging a modest 11.8 points, 5.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks.

Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff praised rookie Montrezl Harrell after Thursday's performance vs. the Jazz.

"He was boxing out. He was physical," Bickerstaff said. "Because of his energy, because he was in so many different places, sometimes he's not in position to rebound the ball. His energy is infectious. Everybody feels it. They love it. They feed off it. I'll take that energy every night." Harrell played 27 minutes in the win, and he could continue to see minutes in the 20s if Dwight Howard (back) misses more time. However, Harrell is only on the radar in deeper leagues due to a low upside.
Jan 9 - 10:18 AM

Montrezl Harrell played 27 minutes off the bench on Thursday against the Jazz with five points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and three turnovers.

He's a little rough around the edges. If Harrell isn't dunking or getting a shot right at the rim, he's pretty useless on offense. The Rockets won't have Donatas Motiejunas (back) for at least a few games, so Harrell should be in the rotation. If the Rockets think about trading Terrence Jones, they'll really need Harrell to step up. He's only a stash in extremely deep leagues.
Jan 7 - 11:58 PM

Montrezl Harrell is expected to be in the rotation with Donatas Motiejunas (back) out of the lineup.

"Montrezl is going to have to be prepared to play," J.B. Bickerstaff said. "Montrezl is going to have to be prepared to play some minutes." He played 17 minutes on Monday vs. Utah, but he's going to have to do way more than get in the rotation to pop up on the fantasy radar in standard formats.
Jan 5 - 5:03 PM

Montrezl Harrell played 17 minutes on Monday vs. the Jazz, scoring two points with two boards and one assist.

Donatas Motiejunas (back) doesn't have a timetable to return and Terrence Jones was benched for poor play in this one, so Harrell is the next man up. The rookie is more of an energy guy and doesn't have much upside, so leave him on the wire.
