Top Maurice Harkless News

  • Hawks' Maurice Harkless: Dealt to Atlanta

    Harkless -- along with Justin Holiday and a future first-round pick -- was dealt from the Kings to the Hawks on Friday for Kevin Huerter, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After the Hawks traded for Dejounte Murray, Huerter's role as a shooting guard became less needed, so Atlanta opted to load up on more defensive-minded wings. Harkless will presumably slot in as the backup power forward but can see minutes at the three as well. Last season, he saw 18.4 minutes per game and averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 rebounds. He's an inconsistent three-point shooter -- 32.0 percent for his career on 1.9 attempts per game.

    Harkless (ankle) is unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Questionable vs. Nuggets

    Harkless (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Unavailable Monday

    Harkless has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Knicks due to a right ankle sprain.

    Harkless didn't appear in any of the last four games, and he's now dealing with a sprained ankle. His next chance to return will be Wednesday against the Nuggets.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Steps out of starting five

    Harkless will come off the bench Monday against the Thunder, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Harkless started in his past 10 appearances but will exit the lineup after totaling nine points (4-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds and one block in 26 minutes over the last two games. Trey Lyles will start in his place for Sacramento.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Vanishes in loss

    Harkless posted one point (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and two rebounds across 18 minutes during Monday's 109-85 loss to Brooklyn.

    Harkless entered Monday averaging 13.8 points on 56.8 percent shooting over five contests in January, but he lost all semblance of being a productive contributor against Brooklyn. Monday can serve as a reminder to temper expectations for the 28-year-old, who is averaging 5.2 points and 2.6 rebounds across 39 appearances this season.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Productive effort in win

    Harkless racked up 17 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds and one block over 30 minutes during Saturday's 123-110 win over Washington.

    Harkless has started in each of Sacramento's last six games and has been productive, scoring in double digits in four of the last five and also pulling down at least eight rebounds in two of the last three. The veteran is averaging just 7.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game when playing as a starter (20 games), but there's no question his numbers are experiencing an uptick that should translate into a bigger fantasy role if he's able to keep his place as a starter going forward.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Officially playing, starting

    Harkless (ankle) will start Saturday's matchup against the Wizards, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

    As expected, Harkless makes his return following a one-game absence. His return pushes Chimezie Metu to the bench.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Expected to play, start

    Harkless (ankle) is active for Saturday's game against the Wizards and is expected to play and start, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    The Kings are going as far as possible to say Harkless is starting Saturday without definitively confirming it. But, assuming that's the case, Chimezie Metu will head back to the bench while Domantas Sabonis starts at center.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Questionable Saturday

    Harkless (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Wizards.

    Harkless' absence opened up a spot for Chimezie Metu to start alongside the newly-acquired Domantas Sabonis. It's unclear how the rotation will shake when Harkless is available, though he'll presumably get the nod at power forward.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Ruled out Wednesday

    Harkless (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Harkless left Tuesday's game early with the ankle injury that will now keep him from playing Wednesday. With Marvin Bagley also sidelined, Chimezie Metu and Harrison Barnes should see an uptick in playing time. Harkless' next chance to return will be Saturday against the Wizards.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Unlikely to play Wednesday

    Harkless (ankle) is doubtful Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

    Harkless exited Tuesday's game with a sprained right ankle, so it's not surprising that he'll likely sit out one day later. It remains to be seen how the frontcourt shakes out with Marvin Bagley (ankle) questionable and Domantas Sabonis' (recently traded) status murky.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Exits with ankle injury

    Harkless won't return to Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves due to a right ankle injury, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports. He finished the game with six points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 10 minutes.

    With the Kings playing the Timberwolves again Wednesday, Harkless should be considered questionable for that contest. If Harkless is sidelined, how the minutes at power forward will shake out will also depend on the availability of Richaun Holmes (personal), Domantas Sabonis (recently acquired) and Marvin Bagley (ankle).

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Notches double-double Saturday

    Harkless closed with 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 38 minutes during Saturday's 113-103 victory over Oklahoma City.

    Harkless led Sacramento in rebounding and registered his first double-double of the campaign in the victory. He was strictly a bench player as of a week ago, but the veteran has started four straight contests and is averaging 15.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.7 three-pointers, 2.7 steals and 1.3 blocks over his past three games. Those numbers -- especially the triples and steals -- are certainly worth short-term fantasy consideration, though Harkless could return to a bench role when Marvin Bagley (ankle) is able to return.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Tallies six steals Thursday

    Harkless supplied 18 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one block and six steals over 31 minutes during Thursday's 126-114 loss to the Warriors.

    Harkless made his third straight start for Sacramento and came through with his best performance of the campaign. The veteran forward's 18 points were his most this season, and his six thefts tied a career high. Harkless has registered double-digit points in two straight contests after failing to reach that achievement in his previous 19 appearances.

  • Kings' Maurice Harkless: Starting Monday

    Harkless will start Monday's game against the Knicks, James Ham of ESPN 1320 in Sacramento reports.

    With Marvin Bagley (ankle) out, the Kings will shuffle the lineup and go with Harkless at power forward alongside Richaun Holmes and Harrison Barnes. Harkless has been in and out of the rotation for much of the season, but he's played at least 12 minutes in each of his last four appearances. Nonetheless, he's not much of a fantasy option in most formats.
