Moe Harkless said he's in a "comfortable situation" with the Blazers. He also quickly stated he's not worried about the trade rumors. "It doesn’t do anything for me to get involved with that," Harkless said. "If it happens, it happens." Now that Allen Crabbe is in Brooklyn, Harkless could be looking at a few more minutes at the three along with Evan Turner. When Harkless hit the 30-minute mark 39 times last year, he had better efficiency and a higher usage rate compared to the 39 times he did not get to 30 minutes. He's on the board as a late-round pick.

ESPN's Ian Begley is reporting that Knicks and Blazers have had preliminary discussions about a trade involving Moe Harkless and draft picks. Portland is well over the cap, with more than $132 million in guaranteed contracts on their ledger for the 2017-18 season. Thus, the Blazers may be willing to trade away one of their three first-round picks (they have the 15th, 20th and 26th picks in the 2017 draft) to shed salary. Portland would probably prefer to trade away Evan Turner or Meyers Leonard as opposed to Harkless, but it makes sense that the Knicks would like to land Harkless, a New York native. It is unknown what NY may be willing to offer in return.

Moe Harkless scored one point with one rebound and one assist in 20 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. His playing time took a significant hit because of Jusuf Nurkic returning and the Blazers not using as many small-ball four and five lineups. He'll likely be in the same neighborhood for minutes on Monday.

Moe Harkless scored a team-high 15 points in 29 minutes vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, making 5-of-14 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with one 3-pointer. Harkless also grabbed eight rebounds with one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers. He started the game hot but quickly cooled off, and his team-high designation was purely the result of his teammates' inefficiency -- Portland shot a brutal 33.3 percent from the field. It's difficult to guess which Blazers' forward will play well on any given night.

Moe Harkless returned from a rest day to finish Wednesday's home loss with 11 points on 5-of-6 field goals and 1-of-5 free throws, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes. Harkless came in shooting 35.1 percent from deep, and he has a contract bonus of $500k if he finishes the regular season above 35.0 percent. Unsurprisingly, he did not attempt a 3-pointer tonight -- he said before that if the game were on the line with his team down three points, he would "pump fake it and try to draw a foul." With Portland's playoff seeding already determined and nothing at stake tonight, that was the logical answer.

Moe Harkless will return to action vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday. Al-Farouq Aminu will rest tonight, as coach Terry Stotts continues to stagger DNP-CDs for his primary players down the stretch.

Moe Harkless was a healthy scratch on Monday vs. the Spurs. While Harkless wasn't on the injury report, this was likely just a rest day for the athletic forward -- he had some trouble with a calf issue earlier this season. Barring a surprise, Harkless should be back in the rotation on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

Moe Harkless scored 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes vs. the Wolves on Monday. The Blazers are playing a lot of small ball with Jusuf Nurkic (leg) out and it's certainly benefitting Harkless. He had 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Suns on Saturday, but if tonight was any indication, he could be ready to go on a run. He was a top-75 player in standard leagues for the first few months of the season, and with three more games on the schedule this week, he's definitely worth deploying.

Moe Harkless scored 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Suns on Saturday. Coach Terry Stotts loves Harkless' defense and he gained a ton of points for how he defended James Harden earlier this week. Harkless may have also been at his best earlier this season when Al-Farouq Aminu was out because Harkless had to play some four, but now there should also be minutes at the four again due to some depth issues. Harkless should be owned in standard leagues, especially with five games next week.

Moe Harkless, who hadn't scored more than eight points in six straight games, hit 8-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, six rebounds, two steals and three blocks in Thursday's big 117-110 win over the Rockets. He also played incredible defense against James Harden, prompting coach Terry Stotts to say "I thought he was very conscientious" after the game. Harkless has been really bad for a couple weeks now and the 17 points are the most he's scored since he had 18 on March 4. Noah Vonleh was very quiet tonight and Harkless looked fantastic against the Rockets, but he's still not the most trustworthy player around. The 32 minutes he got tonight were his most since he played 33 on March 11, and he only played 14 minutes on Tuesday. Harkless may have been dropped in your league recently and there were good reasons for that happening. Just keep an eye on him and if he does this again against the Suns on Saturday, then think about grabbing him for next week.
