Harrell finished Thursday's loss to Miami with 10 points (3-4 FG, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and two steals across 21 minutes.
After getting ejected and playing only two minutes in his previous contest, Harrell saw just 21 minutes Thursday. His playing time is likely to take a hit with Andre Drummond now in the picture, but Harrell should still be able to put up productive numbers. He managed to get within a rebound of a double-double Thursday and added a pair of steals as well.
Harrell was ejected during Tuesday's win against the Raptors after just two minutes.
Harrell put himself into an altercation between teammate Dennis Schroder and OG Anunoby, who was also ejected. It's not clear if Harrell will be suspended.
Harrell logged 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 27 minutes Sunday in a 104-86 loss against the Clippers.
Harrell scored only five points at Sacramento on Friday but supplied a team-best 19 in that same category Sunday. Andre Drummond sat out and could miss more games if his toe injury does not heal quickly, giving the former Clipper potential chances to earn some value.
Harrell scored 19 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-7 FT) and grabbed five rebounds across 26 minutes in a loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Harrell led the Lakers in scoring Wednesday, and he's been their most effective offensive player since LeBron James went down with an ankle injury March 20. He's scored at least 18 points in seven straight games, with four double-digit efforts on the boards in that span. Harrell is posting per-game averages of 15.2 points and 6.8 rebounds overall this season, but he's been even better over these last couple weeks.
Harrell has recorded four double-doubles over the Lakers' past six games, averaging 21.0 points (on 66.2 percent shooting from the floor) and 9.3 rebounds in 32.0 minutes per game to go with 1.0 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.7 assists.
Harrell's surge has coincided with LeBron James (ankle) joining Anthony Davis (calf) on the injury list, with both players likely in line to miss another week or two, if not longer. In the short term, Harrell's usage rate should be on the upswing, but the Lakers' recent signing of Andre Drummond looms as a potential threat to Harrell's playing time. Harrell lacks the flexibility to play power forward alongside Drummond, and Marc Gasol's defensive aptitude should also maintain a spot in head coach Frank Vogel's center rotation. As a result, Harrell could be in danger of seeing his 30-minute role drop into the 15-to-20 range, depending on how soon the Lakers are willing to integrate Drummond once he gets his conditioning in order after a month-long layoff from game action. The Lakers are back on the schedule Wednesday against the Bucks.
Harrell totaled 24 points (10-15 FG, 4-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes in Friday's 100-86 win over the Cavaliers.
With both LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (calf) out of commission, Harrell has stepped up as the Lakers' primary scoring threat. Though he continues to come off the bench, Harrell has posted 20-plus points in seven of his past 10 games, including three of four contests since James went down with injury. The 27-year-old is shooting an efficient 63.7 percent from the field overall this season.
Harrell contributed 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 FT), eight rebounds, an assist and a steal across 33 minutes in Thursday's 109-101 loss to the Sixers.
Despite a solid performance, Harrell's fantasy value hangs in the balance. The Lakers are a candidate to procure LaMarcus Aldridge or Andre Drummond, and the addition of either player would harm Harrell's totals. There are other teams higher on the prospective list, and getting Anthony Davis and LeBron James back into the lineup will do a lot more than adding one more center to the equation. Still, Harrell managers should be aware of a possible move.
Harrell added 18 points (5-10 FG, 8-12 FT), six rebounds and two blocks during Tuesday's loss to New Orleans.
Harrell posted at least 18 points for a fifth time over the past six contests but snapped his streak of 10-plus rebounds at three games. The center has been playing superbly over his past eight games, as he's averaging 18.5 points 10.8 rebounds all off the bench during that stretch.
Harrell logged 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-8 FT), 10 rebounds and one block across 34 minutes Sunday in a 111-94 loss at Phoenix.
Harrell came away with his sixth double-double of the season and his third of March. His spike in production has coincided with the absence of Marc Gasol (COVID-19 health and safety protocols), but even if Gasol is back in action Tuesday against the Pelicans, Harrell could still fill a high-volume role on offense for the Lakers even while playing off the second unit. The Lakers will likely have plenty of shot attempts to go around over the next several games with LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (calf) facing uncertain return timelines.
Harrell finished with 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 boards, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of a 99-95 loss to the Hawks on Saturday.
Harrell tried picking up the scoring load for the Lakers after LeBron James (ankle) left the game in the first half. Harrell has been solid off the bench for the Lakers with Anthony Davis (calf) out, and now the frontcourt is thinner with the loss of James. No single player can replace James, but Harrell has shown he can score and attack the glass, putting him in a good position to be one of the guys who will take on an increased role beginning Sunday against the Suns.
Harrell recorded seven points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT) and 11 rebounds across 22 minutes Thursday in a 116-105 win versus Charlotte.
Unlike during the Lakers' previous three matchups, Harrell recorded double-figures in rebounds. He has accomplished said feat only six times and is averaging 6.4 boards across 41 games. Despite his achievement Thursday, he remains an unfavorable option for rebounds heading into Saturday's game versus Atlanta. Harrell is slated to match up against the league's rebounding leader in Hawks center Clint Capela.
Harrell totaled 25 points (11-16 FG, 3-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot over 29 minutes Tuesday in a 137-121 win over Minnesota.
With Anthony Davis (calf) still on the shelf and Marc Gasol (COVID-19 protocols) unable to be with the team, Harrell has stepped in to provide big scoring down low for the Lakers over the past four games. In that stretch, he's averaged 23.8 points on an uber-efficient 68.3 percent mark from the field. Harrell has been contributing in other categories as well, chipping in 6.8 boards, 2.3 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks per contest over the same four-game span.
Harrell totaled 27 points (11-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and three steals across 25 minutes in a 128-97 victory versus the Warriors on Monday.
With the Lakers decimated by a rash of injuries, Harrell stepped up to lead the team in scoring in 25 minutes off the bench. The 27 points were Harrell's most as a Laker, and he needed only 14 field-goal attempts to reach the mark. Harrell also tied his season high with three steals in the solid all-around performance.
Harrell had 17 points (8-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal across 32 minutes Friday in a 105-100 win against the Pacers.
Harrell is a valuable commodity when given many chances to shoot the ball. The 27-year-old is averaging 19.5 points across 12 games in which he attempted more than 10 field goals. Harrell added to this particular game by tying his season high of three blocks (also Jan. 30 at Boston).
Harrell notched 26 points (13-22 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds, an assist and a block across 33 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss against the Kings.
Harrell contributed 26 points for the second time over his last six appearances and has scored 15-plus points four times in that stretch. His scoring numbers might be inconsistent off the bench, but Harrell has a clear role and consistent playing time so he should remain a reliable fantasy asset in most formats even if he has an off night from time to time. He is averaging 14.6 points per game on 58.7 percent shooting over his last 10 outings, however, so he's trending in the right direction.
Harrell will come off the bench Wednesday against the Kings, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old started and played 18 minutes Tuesday with Marc Gasol (COVID-19 protocols) unavailable, but he'll shift back to the bench Wednesday. Coach Frank Vogel said Harrell indicated he prefers to serve in a bench role, so Damian Jones will join the starting five for the shorthanded Lakers.
Harrell will start Tuesday's game against the Suns, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.
With Marc Gasol (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined, Harrell will draw his first start since Nov. 19, 2019. In the 19 games this season that Harrell has seen at least 24 minutes, he has averaged 15.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Harrell had six points (3-7 FG), three rebounds and two steals in Sunday's win over the Warriors.
Harrell's minutes total (11) is a little alarming, but the Lakers jumped out to a 20-point first-quarter lead and never looked back, so Frank Vogel was able to rest several of his regulars during the second half. Over his previous four games, Harrell saw 30, 22, 23 and 24 minutes, respectively.
Harrell recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes Friday in a 102-93 win versus Portland.
Harrell was one rebound short of his fourth double-double this season. Even so, he has been an outstanding presence from the Lakers' bench in recent matchups. Harrell is averaging 19.3 points and 8.5 rebounds in only 24.8 minutes across their past four games. Harrell's playing time may be a recurring issue, but his numbers make him a satisfactory option in any fantasy leagues at the moment.
Harrell produced 18 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 24 minutes in Saturday's 96-94 loss to the Heat.
Although Marc Gasol has graced the starting five as the No. 1 center, Harrell's aggression and board-crashing style have caused him to frequently outduel his teammate from the bench. Still, the team is satisfied with Harrell's role, and he routinely sees around 25 minutes with the second unit.
