Harrell mustered 19 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 22 minutes in the Clippers' 134-107 win over the Suns on Wednesday. Harrell delivered yet another signature effort, with Wednesday's production impressively coming in his lowest amount of playing time since New Year's Day. The 25-year-old has proven equally effective whether starting or on the second unit this season, and he continues to be a virtual lock for double-digit shot attempts and point totals any time he's on the floor for his normal allotment of minutes. Harrell's role appears set to stay the same despite the recent departure of Tobias Harris via trade, but that slotting has been good enough to help him churn out career highs in points (15.9) and rebounds (6.7) through his first 59 games.
Harrell scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 35 minutes off the bench during Monday's 130-120 loss to the Timberwolves. While Ivica Zubac got the start at center, four turnovers and three fouls in only 15 minutes ensured that Harrell would see most of the action up the middle for the Clippers. The 25-year-old has now scored in double digits in 13 straight games, averaging 16.5 points, 6.1 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.3 blocks over that stretch, and even in a reserve role behind Zubac, Harrell should get enough court time to maintain some fantasy value.
Harrell tallied 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes Saturday in the Clippers' 123-112 win over the Celtics. As expected, Harrell moved back to his typical role on the bench Saturday with the Clippers deploying the newly acquired Ivica Zubac as the starting center in his team debut. As was the case when either Marcin Gortat or Boban Marjanovic started earlier in the season, Harrell still handled the majority of the playing time at center and produced a quality stat line. Don't expect Harrell to regularly shoot this well from the free-throw line, but he should remain an above-average contributor in scoring, rebounds, blocks and field-goal percentage the rest of the way.
Coach Doc Rivers suggested that Harrell would move back to the bench for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports. After Marcin Gortat and Boban Marjanovic were both dealt away leading up to the Clippers' previous game Thursday in Indiana, Harrell was pressed into the starting role for just the fourth time all season and produced 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 FT), four assists, two steals and two blocks and one rebound. The scoring and minutes counts weren't too different from what Harrell has often posted off the bench, so his move away from the starting five shouldn't have much of an impact on his fantasy outlook. Ivica Zubac, who was one of several players acquired in the Clippers' pre-deadline deals, is slated to step in on the top unit in his team debut but projects to see the smaller share of playing time at center.
Harrell registered 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 FT), a rebound, four assists, two blocks and two steals in 29 minutes Thursday against Indiana. Harrell drew a spot start with his team playing short-handed Thursday night following a trade. He's shot the ball well over his previous five contests, as he's averaging 15.2 points on 62.1 percent shooting from the field. Despite a strong performance at Indiana, the Clippers would fall 116-92 against one of the best defenses in the league. Harrell will aim to get his squad back in the win column Saturday in Boston.
