Maurice Harkless News
Miami Heat forward Maurice Harkless (thigh) went through his first full practice since suffering a thigh injury on January 23rd. Harkless was cleared to return last Thursday against the Houston Rockets, but did not play in that game or Saturday against the Utah Jazz. This was likely due to Harkless getting back to speed and the news about practice could bode well for his availability this week. However, Harkless is not on the fantasy radar with Kelly Olynyk starting and could even be a trade piece for the Heat as we near the trade deadline.
Miami Heat small/power forward Maurice Harkless (thigh) has been given the thumbs up to play in Thursday's game against the Rockets, marking a return to action for the first time since Jan. 23. Harkless has combined for just 12 points across his first nine contests, an indication of the minimal role that he has played in spite of having made three starts. While his return could cut fractionally into the minutes allotments of Andre Iguodala and Precious Achiuwa, Miami's second unit frontcourt holds marginal season-long fantasy appeal, even in deeper-sized formats.
Miami Heat forward Maurice Harkless (thigh) is questionable to play Thursday against the Houston Rockets. Harkless has not played since January 23rd with a thigh contusion, but has joined Miami on their upcoming road trip and could make a return this week. Harkless was on the fringe of the rotation when playing so there is not much fantasy value here unless there is a major injury to one of the starters.
Miami Heat forward Maurice Harkless (forearm) will not suit up Wednesday against the Boston Celtics. Harkless started the season opener, but has since be well outside the normal rotation. His injury will not impact much, but Kelly Olynyk will get his second-straight start and is looking like a speculative in add in season-long leagues. Olynyk posted 19 points on 7-for-9 shooting and eight rebounds in a start Monday and has played at least 25 minutes in four straight games. He won't shoot this well, but Olynyk is a good source of threes from the forward position.
