    Al-Farouq Aminu scored 17 points (5-of-9 from the field, 6-of-6 from the line) to go with a triple, 11 rebounds, two assists, a block and no turnovers in Friday’s easy road win over the Hawks.

    Aminu hasn’t been as consistent as we had hoped after the injury to C.J. McCollum but he has top-100 value over his last three games. He continues to be a low-end option. Moe Harkless contributed eight points, seven rebounds, a block and a steal.

  • Rodney Hood
    G, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood will start for Moe Harkless (knee) on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Harkless’ knee is acting up again so Hood will get the spot-start. Despite a random explosion here and there, Hood hasn’t been able to gain any separation from the other wings in Portland.

    Moe Harkless (left knee) is being called questionable for Game 4 on Saturday.

    With the Blazers trying to save their season, we'd bet on anyone with all four limbs attached suiting up. Harkless has played 27 and 26 minutes in his two postseason appearances, starting in Game 3 but delivering a 5-3-4 line on 2-of-8 shooting. Portland will need more from its complementary pieces as their star backcourt has been locked down thanks to the full attention of a game New Orleans outfit.

    Moe Harkless (knee) returned to action in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Pelicans, scoring 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and one block in 27 minutes.

    This was as good as could have been expected and barring any setbacks he could easily see his minutes raised, whether or not Evan Turner (toe) misses time or is limited. The Blazers need Harkless' versatility and down 2-0 they're not likely to hold him back if he says he's ready.

    Moe Harkless (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Harkless had minor knee surgery back in March, but was able to practice in a limited fashion on Monday. The Blazers could use his defense and shooting ability after losing to the Pelicans on Saturday. The 24-year-old averaged 14.4 points, 2.2 treys, 1.4 blocks and 0.6 steals in the last five games before needing arthroscopic knee surgery. He will eat into Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu's playing time at the wing spots, but will likely be brought along slowly in the first game or two.

    Moe Harkless (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Harkless was originally considered unlikely to play in Game 2, but he went through portions of Monday's practice and was set to be evaluated afterwards. It sounds as though initial evaluations have come back positive and he may be able to suit up tomorrow. Having Harkless back in the lineup will be a major boost for the Blazers, who are looking to bounce back from their Game 1 loss at home.

    Moe Harkless (knee) will be evaluated after going through parts of Monday's practice, but it very unlikely to play in Game 2 against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Harkless may return at some point during the first round if his rehab goes well and suffers no setbacks. He's a key cog to the Blazers' success so getting him back as soon as possible would be huge for them.

    Moe Harkless (knee) is "progressing" according to the Blazers but is still questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Pelicans.

    Getting Harkless back would be big for the Blazers because right now they're playing guys that really shouldn't be playing as much as they have been such as Evan Turner or Pat Connaughton. He would also be a better fit on Nikola Mirotic but there's also the question of his rust and effectiveness coming off of the injury.

    Moe Harkless (arthroscopic knee surgery) has officially been ruled out for Saturday's Game 1 vs. the Pelicans.

    This wasn't completely unexpected, and Evan Turner should stick in the starting lineup until Harkless is well enough to return.

    Moe Harkless (knee) is targeting a return in the middle of next week according to reporter Jason Quick.

    "Making progress … I just don't want to do too much, too fast," said Harkless. That would put him in play sometime during the Blazers' first round playoff matchup and they need him back, as they've slipped a bit in his proficient areas. His left knee strain, left foot issues, calf issues and even confidence issues contributed to a 59-game season in which he hovered around the top-200 when on the floor. If there is any consolation he appeared to get back on track late.

    Moe Harkless (knee) will be sidelined for at least two weeks after left knee surgery on Wednesday.

    Harkless will be reevaluated in two weeks, and the expected timetable before he can play again is 2-to-3 weeks. His absence is substantial for both the Blazers and fantasy owners as he'd be on a roll lately (top-25 value over the last two weeks). Evan Turner started in his absence on Tuesday and will likely do so moving forward too. It's probably a stretch to deploy him in standard formats, but options are limited at this point in the season.
