Harrell (personal) will not play during the Clippers' final seeding game Friday against the Thunder, Mirjam Swanson of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Coach Doc Rivers was hopeful Harrell would be able to take the court, but he'll have to make his bubble debut in the playoffs. Ivica Zubac and JaMychal Green should continue seeing most of the center minutes in Harrell's absence.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday that he hopes Harrell will be available for the team's final seeding game Friday against the Thunder, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. Harrell remains in self-isolation after arriving late to the Orlando bubble, so his availability will likely hinge on whether he's cleared through the NBA's COVID-19 protocol. Rivers sated that if Harrell is, in fact, available, he'd like to get the forward on the floor Friday in order for the Clippers to play one game with their full rotation before the postseason begins.
Harrell (personal) relayed Monday via a post on his personal Twitter account that he has returned to the NBA bubble in Orlando. Harrell hasn't been with the Clippers since mid-July, when he left the bubble to be with his ailing grandmother, who eventually passed away. Now that he's back in Orlando, Harrell will have to complete a mandatory quarantine period before he's cleared to join the team for workouts. He'll likely need at least a couple of practices to regain conditioning, making it uncertain whether he'll be available for either of the Clippers' final two seeding games. Per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com, coach Doc Rivers has essentially already ruled Harrell out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, but he left the door open for the big man to potentially play Friday versus the Thunder.
Harrell (personal) is not with the Clippers in the bubble and remains out Saturday against the Trail Blazers, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports. Harrell is not with the team and it remains to be seen how long his absence will be. His next chance to take the court arrives Sunday against the Nets, but it seems unlikely he'll be available.
Harrell will remain out for Thursday's game against Dallas, Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points reports. Harrell has yet to rejoin the team in Orlando, so he'll miss Thursday's game, and he'll likely remain out for the Clippers' Saturday-Sunday back-to-back set. The hope is that he'll arrive in Orlando as soon as possible and have an opportunity to work on his conditioning before the playoffs begin.
