      Trailblazers' Maurice Harkless: Sees light minutes Monday

      Harkless was limited to just 12 minutes in Monday's loss to the Spurs. He finished with five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound. Harkless was expected to be an indirect beneficiary of Meyers Leonard's absence due to a dislocated shoulder, but through three games, Harkless has yet to see a noticeable spike in playing time. In fact, the 12 minutes he received Monday marked his lowest total of the season, though it shouldn't necessarily be taken as a precursor of what's to come.

      Trailblazers' Maurice Harkless: Posts double-double Wednesday

      Harkless posted his first double-double of the season Wednesday in Utah, accruing 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and three blocks in 29 minutes. Harkless was afforded a season-high in playing time due to the ankle sprain that knocked Meyers Leonard from the contest. Directed to be active by coach Terry Stotts when on the floor, Harkless augmented his work on the boards with a continued touch from beyond the arc, hitting both of his three-pointers. Now shooting 50 percent (6-for-12) from deep for the season, he appears to have progressed from an inconsistent first three campaigns in Orlando, where he nailed just 31 percent of his treys. With Leonard's immediate playing status in doubt, Harkless will likely be a consistent factor in the frontcourt for the foreseeable future, starting Thursday against the Grizzlies.

      Trailblazers' Maurice Harkless: Returns to practice

      Harkless (ankle) was a full participant at Monday's practice, Erik Gundersen of The Columbian reports. Harkless sprained his ankle Thursday against the Clippers and missed practice over the weekend. With Al-Farouq Aminu (hamstring) very much questionable for Wednesday's season opener, Harkless could see a larger role early in the season.

      Harkless (ankle) missed Saturday's practice, Jason Quick of reports. Harkless was limited to working out on an exercise bike during the practice session.

      Trailblazers' Maurice Harkless: Drops 15 in loss to Lakers

      Harkless scored 15 points (5-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and accumulated five rebounds, one steal and one block in a 104-102 loss to the Lakers on Monday. Harkless always showed some ability in Orlando, but never really got the chance to prove himself. He might get that chance here in Portland with all the talent leaving town and could set a career-high in minutes if everything falls his way. He's not being drafted in most formats, but could become waiver wire gold, if he captures a starting role.

      Trailblazers' Maurice Harkless: Unlikely to play Saturday night in Sacremento

      Harkless (concussion) is unlikely to play Saturday night in Sacremento. Harkless suffered concussion in practice Wednesday and has had to sit out basketball activities the last two days. He's going through the standard protocol and won't be made available to play until he's symptom free. While Portland will play it safe with Harkless now, he'll likely be fine for the start of the season.
