Montrezl Harrell put up 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting in a 118-100 win over Melbourne United on Sunday.
He added six rebounds and four assists to the stat sheet and shot 6-of-9 form the free-throw line. He also got one steal and one block. Harrell has top-65 potential, so he should be drafted in the middle rounds comfortably.

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers in scoring with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and two steals.
Harrell took tonight's matchup against Nikola Jokic personally which is in line with his personality. You can expect his high energy and dog personality to show up every night for the Clippers and even though they're a much deeper team this year, Harrell should still be able to provide solid fantasy stats alongside Lou Williams (13 points, one triple, three rebounds, three assists and a steal).

Montrezl Harrell is appreciative of the invitation but is unlikely to play for Team USA Basketball in the FIBA World Cup.
Harrell was just extended the invitation, but as has been the theme of the summer it seems like he wants to focus on the upcoming NBA season instead.

Montrezl Harrell and Mason Plumlee have been added to Team USA Basketball for the FIBA World Cup.
Harrell and Plumlee are the newest additions to Team USA, as the team continues to change with many players opting to sit out. Harrell had a great season off the bench for the Clippers last season, while Plumlee again tries to admirably fill-in for Paul Milsap, even in the summer.

Lou Williams collected his third Kia NBA Sixth Man Award on Monday night, winning it over Domantas Sabonis and Montrezl Harrell.
Williams wasn't needed quite as much this season due to the heath of his teammates. That caused his minutes to drop from 32.8 to 26.6 per game, but he still scored 20.0 points per game and even increased his rebounds and assists to career-highs.

Lou Williams, Montrezl Harrell and Domantas Sabonis have been named the finalists for this year’s NBA Sixth Man award.
Harrell and Sabonis really stepped up their impact off the bench this season but considering WIlliams passed Jamal Crawford for most bench points in NBA history this season, he seems to have the narrative on his side. A win would be Williams’ third (and would tie him with Crawford for the most won by one player).

Montrezl Harrell had a tough time on Friday night, scoring 10 points while adding six rebounds and picking up five fouls in 17 minutes of action.
The Warriors barely messed around with their non-versatile bigs tonight and Harrell ended up picking up three fouls in his first nine minutes of action, so he just never found his footing. Tonight's loss caps a truly excellent campaign from Harrell, however, and he figures to be a popular fantasy target next season. His bargain bin days are very much over.

Montrezl Harrell played well in a win over the Warriors in Game 5 on Wednesday as he had 24 points on 11-of-14 shooting in 27 minutes of action.
He added five rebounds, two assists and one block while shooting a perfect 2-of-2 from the line. Harrell provided energy and paint dominance for the Clippers throughout this game, which lifted them to a win to force a Game 6. Harrell's only block came late in the fourth quarter on a Kevon Looney dunk attempt, which shifted momentum in the Clippers' favor.

Montrezl Harrell scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in Thursday's Game 3 against the Warriors.
Harrell was able to score, but he couldn't keep up in the pick-and-roll with Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. It's a tall task for anyone and tonight it led to a bunch of layups for Andrew Bogut and Kevon Looney as Harrell isn't a bad defender, but he's nowhere near the level you need to be to guard the Warriors.

Montrezl Harrell didn't miss a shot from the floor (9-of-9) and put up a clinical double-double with 25 points, 10 rebounds and two assists on Monday night.
Harrell continues to be a high-end energy guy for the Clippers and he has really shown a propensity for this role on this squad. He will likely continue to impress, especially with the Warriors now probably missing DeMarcus Cousins for the foreseeable future.

Montrezl Harrell scored a team high 26 points on 11-of-15 from the field, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes off the bench for the Clippers on Saturday night.
Harrell brought his A-game and was a handful for the Warriors in Game 1. His energy off the bench for the Clippers was one of the main reasons they made it into the postseason in the first place and they will need much more of that if they are to upset the Warriors in Game 2, or in the series, for that matter.

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers with 24 points on 10-of-13 from the field in 21 minutes, adding seven rebounds, five assists, a block and two turnovers in Wednesday’s 143-137 overtime win over the Jazz.
Harrell came into the season with fairly low expectations in the fantasy community as evidenced by an average ADP in the 150s, meaning he went undrafted in many leagues. The man they call Trez blew those expectations out of the water, finishing No. 73 in 9-cat and No. 77 in 8-cat in per game value. Since he only missed one game all season, his total value landed in the top-50 in 8 and 9-cat. The only knock on his game is the 64.2 percent he shot on free throws but that was a career high and he hit almost 70 percent of his freebies over the last two months of the season. Harrell’s weighted field goal percentage gave him the fourth-best field goal impact all season. He’s a bundle of raw energy off the bench and he’ll look to reprise that role next year.
