Harkless scored seven points on 3 of 6 shooting from the field, including 1 of 3 from downtown. He added five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one rebound while logging 22 minutes of game action.
The injury occurred during practice Thursday, when he took an elbow to the face. He will undergo surgery Saturday, the team announced, and at this point it is not clear how long the injury is expected to keep Oladipo out or who might step into the starting lineup for him.
Oladipo managed to avoid injury almost entirely last season, as he averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 80 games en route to a second place finish in Rookie of the Year.
Harkless played 38 minutes in the game, his highest total since mid-January. He scored 22 points on 9 of 13 shooting, with a pair of 3-pointers made, while adding five rebounds. He did turn the ball over four times in the loss, matching his second-highest total of the season.
Harkless has failed to take the expected step forward in his second season in the league, having been surpassed by other options. He is averaging just 6.7 points per game while appearing in 57 of 59 games.
Harkless was passive throughout, and it showed in his box score. He finished the game with just three points on 1 of 3 shooting, despite going to the free-throw line six times. He missed all six of his shots from the charity stripe, and added just one assist and two steals to his line.
Harkless is averaging just .6 points and 1.6 rebounds per game over the last five, while playing only 19.0 minutes per contest. His disappointing sophomore season has seen his averages dip in every relevant category.
Harkless went 5 of 11 shooting from the field, including 1 of 4 from behind the arc, and 2 of 4 from the free throw line. He finished with 13 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in a 107-88 defeat.
Harkless has scored in double figures in three of his last five games. He has averaged 10.8 points and 3.6 rebounds over that span.
