    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Will start Saturday

    Harkless will make his second straight start Saturday when the Trail Blazers take on the Rockets, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports. Noah Vonleh continues to be sidelined by a sprained ankle, which opens the door for Harkless to make yet another start. He didn't get starter-level minutes Thursday, playing just 16 minutes and putting up two points and two blocks against the Raptors.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Starts Thursday against Raptors

    Harkless got the start Thursday against Toronto with Noah Vonleh injured, Eric Ringering of 750thegame reports. Bringing Harkless into the rotation allows coach Terry Stotts to maintain his typical rotations with Meyers Leonard serving as the backup center to Mason Plumlee. Harkless is unlikely to receive the typical starters minutes load, as he has not played more than three minutes in a game over the past two weeks.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Plays only three minutes Tuesday

    Harkless played only three minutes in Tuesday's 112-97 win over the Kings, collecting one rebound. Harkless' role has been on the decline for the last week, as he's seen no more than 10 minutes in any of the Blazers' past four contests. It appears coach Terry Stotts is more inclined to enhance Allen Crabbe's role off the bench rather than make equal room for both Crabbe and Harkless.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Plays 16 minutes Friday

    Harkless (knee) scored four points, grabbed two rebounds, and handed out two assists in 16 minutes off the bench in Friday's victory over the Nets. Harkless dealt with some minor knee soreness over the last day or two, but the setback did not prevent him from taking the floor Friday. He averaged 15.5 minutes over his last two games after seeing at least 20 minutes in seven of his previous eight games.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Probable Friday

    Harkless is dealing with right knee patellar tendinitis and is considered probable for Friday's game against the Nets, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports. Harkless' knee injury appears to be very minor, and he should be able to give it a go Friday in Brooklyn. If he suffers a setback and is unable to take the court, expect Allen Crabbe to see additional run at small forward.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Earns season-high 33 minutes

    Harkless notched 13 points (6-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three steals, two blocks, and one assist in a season-high 33 minutes during Sunday's win at Sacramento. The Blazers wouldn't have been blamed for falling short on the second game of a back-to-back and two stalwarts of the rotation out of the commission -- Damian Lillard (foot) and Ed Davis (ankle) -- but Harkless in particular took advantage of his most run in a Blazers uniform. Harkless teamed up with Meyers Leonard to compose a small frontcourt duo in crunch time to pull out the four-point victory, but the development may not have been possible without foul trouble afflicting Mason Plumlee. In any case, Davis remains "a couple days" from a return, which could afford Harkless a more consistent workload in the short term.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Scores 14 points in 23 minutes Monday

    Harkless submitted 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 23 minutes in Monday's 106-97 loss to the Hawks. C.J. McCollum (ankles) and Damian Lillard (foot) were both sitting out Monday's game, which opened up more minutes for Harkless than he's seen since Nov. 30. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was able to use the added playing time to reach double figures in the scoring column for the first time in December. He could represent a decent DFS punt play Wednesday against the Pelicans with both McCollum and Lillard likely to sit again, but with neither seemingly facing a long-term recovery timetable, Harkless won't provide value for long.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Losing out on playing time to Allen Crabbe

    Harkless saw exactly 10 minutes for the second consecutive game in Monday's 90-88 loss to the Bucks. He finished without a point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and grabbed two rebounds. Harkless has seen less than his season average in minutes (19.1 per game) in each of the Blazers' last four games. His declining usage off the bench has been a byproduct of the emergence of fellow reserve wing Allen Crabbe, who has churned out four double-digit scoring performances over those same contests. Until Crabbe cools off, he'll continue to rank second behind Al-Farouq Aminu on the depth chart at small forward, leaving even less minutes than usual available for Harkless.

    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.
