    Doc Rivers said that he's considering starting Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams in certain matchups and that the fifth starter in those cases would be a "pick 'em" situation.

    The main candidates in that configuration, when both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are playing, are Patrick Beverley or Landry Shamet at point guard or Moe Harkless at power forward. The Clippers, when healthy, have assembled one of the most versatile teams in the league so it wouldn't be surprising if Rivers leveraged that to get the most out of his team on any given night.

    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are preparing to be without Paul George (right rotator cuff and left labrum tear) for at least the first 10 games of the season.

    If he only misses 10 games that would put George in line to return on November 13 versus the Rockets. This seems to be the best case scenario and Moe Harkless and JaMychal Green figure to absorb most of George's minutes while he is out.

    Moe Harkless had a nice night from the field in the Clippers 127-87 victory over the Shanghai Sharks on Sunday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-7 shooting with two blocks.

    Harkless also nailed both his 3-point attempts in just 12 minutes of action. Harkless can deliver steady late-round value when he gets decent playing time, but he is never going to win you a fantasy championship. He is more of a reliable late-round target for deeper fantasy leagues.

    Maurice Harkless is part of the starting unit for the Clippers at the moment, along with Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac.

    Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverley were the two no-doubters, and Harkless is clearly just in there while Paul George misses time due to shoulder surgeries. With a deep team, it is intriguing to see who will be running with the two new all-NBA acquisitions. Harkless could see starters minutes for anywhere from a week to over a month to start the season.

    Moe Harkless will end up with the Clippers when the four-way trade between the Blazers, Sixers, Heat and Clippers is made official.

    Miami will also be sending a future first-round pick to the Clippers. Harkless was traded to Miami in the Hassan Whiteside deal earlier today, and it was assumed that such a move would have ramifications for the Heat's pursuit of Butler — albeit not this directly. Harkless is unlikely to start for the Clippers, so this is a big hit to his fantasy appeal.

    Moe Harkless will be dealt to the Heat when the offseason moratorium ends.

    Harkless and Meyers Leonard will head to the Heat with Hassan Whiteside going to Portland. The move takes Whiteside's absurd $27.1 million salary off the books, and Harkless and Leonard will make about $22 million combined. That extra room will make completing the Jimmy Butler sign-and-trade much easier. As it stands, Harkless has a chance of starting for Miami, though there are more personnel moves to come. Currently his biggest threats to playing time look like James Johnson, Kelly Olynyk (who may be traded) and Derrick Jones Jr. Harkless was a top-150ish player last year and closed his season with a top-90 run. Don't forget about him. Back in Portland, Kent Bazemore, Rodney Hood, Mario Hezonja and Nassir Little should step into extra minutes, which helps their outlooks considerably.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Miami Heat

    The Heat and Blazers are finalizing a deal that would send Hassan Whiteside to Portland in exchange for Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard.

    The Heat and Whiteside have been headed for divorce for some time now, and they've finally found a way out from his big contract. Whiteside should start at center and split minutes with Zach Collins until Jusuf Nurkic is healthy again, while Harkless and Leonard get added to a deep frontcourt rotation in Miami.

    Moe Harkless scored six points and added three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's loss.

    Harkless did all of his damage in the first half and looked to be on his way to a great game scoring six points and adding two steals/blocks. Unfortunately he would not score again and added just one assist to his stat line in the second half. Fellow forward Al-Farouq Aminu added just two points in the losing effort and he and Harkless continue to get marginalized in the Blazers' small-ball lineup. Harkless has the ability to contribute for the team and they will need him to re-find his aggressiveness if the they plan on making this a series.

    Moe Harkless had a productive outing in Tuesday's Game 1 loss, finishing with 17 points, four rebounds, a steal, a 3-pointer and three blocks.

    Harkless fell by the wayside a bit in the Denver series but was back to making an impact by its end, and the Blazers will need him to keep up this output going forward. He certainly fared better than Al-Farouq Aminu, who played only 19 minutes.

    Moe Harkless (right ankle) will be available for Sunday's Game 4 against the Nuggets.

    Harkless has been battling the issue but it hasn't kept him out of the lineup — he played 45 minutes on Friday. Portland's gotten great contributions from their complementary pieces throughout the playoffs and Harkless' defensive work has flown under the radar. He might not be at 100 percent, but it would take a serious issue to keep him off the floor.

    Maurice Harkless had 18 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one steal and one triple in 45 minutes on Friday.

    Harkless did a lot of the dirty work in this one as he grabbed several key rebounds and played some clutch defense allowing Portland to close this win out in four overtimes.

    Maurice Harkless (right ankle sprain) tested his ankle in warmups and is good to go for Friday's Game 3 vs. the Nuggets.

    This is great news for the Blazers who look to take command of the series with a pair of games at home. Hopefully, Harkless' ankle won't flare up during the game.

    Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said he’s hopeful Maurice Harkless (right ankle sprain) will start Friday’s Game 3 “unless he has a setback.”

    Harkless was previously listed a questionable to play, so this looks like a step in the right direction. We’ll have an update before tip off.
