Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless will open up the season as the team's starter at the position.
Insight: He most likely will not be a fantasy-relevant player, but owners should keep an eye on his production nevertheless. Harkless averaged 7.4 points per game and 1.2 steals per game last season, and if he get can his scoring up, he may become a player that has some value.
3/9/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless had 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 36 minutes Saturday at San Antonio.
Insight: Harkless has received extended playing time lately due to injuries, first to Arron Afflalo and now to Victor Oladipo, and has averaged 36 minutes, 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.7 threes and 1.2 blocks in six games.
2/25/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless came up with 22 points, five rebounds and two threes in 38 minutes Tuesday versus the Wizards.
Insight: Harkless has started the last two games in place of the injured Arron Afflalo (foot) but only had two points in 28 minutes Sunday because he got in foul trouble. Afflalo is questionable for Wednesday's game at Philadelphia.
2/23/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless will start Sunday with Arron Afflalo (knee) out, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
Insight: Harkless and has played 21.3 minutes per game this season and averaged 11 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.9 steals, 1.0 threes and 0.8 blocks per 36 minutes.
1/13/2014 12:27:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Maurice Harkless injured a knee on Saturday's game.
Insight: Harkless is still inconsistent in his playing time and production, so his fantasy value is hard to predict from one game to the next. He's averaging 6.7 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 0.7 apg in 36 games this season which is down from his rookie year.
12/15/2013 10:23:00 AM
Description: Magic small forward Maurice Harkless didn't play (coach's decision) Friday.
Insight: Tobias Harris returned from an ankle sprain and pushed Harkless out of the rotation. Harkless only averaged 16 minutes and 5.2 ppg over his last nine games after starting the first 13.
11/27/2013 9:27:00 PM
Description: Magic SF Maurice Harkless played just 16 minutes and had five points, three rebounds and one block Wednesday against Philadelphia.
Insight: Harkless started the first 13 games but didn't produce fantasy-worthy numbers. He's played just 13.5 minutes off the bench over the last two games. Even with Tobias Harris (ankle) out indefinitely, fantasy owners can get rid of Harkless.
Hot4/7/2013 5:54:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless will be available for Sunday's game versus the Cavaliers. He had been a game-time decision because of a sore knee.
Insight: Prior to Friday when Harkless left after just eight minutes, he had averaged 20.3 ppg in his previous four games. If his knee holds up, Harkless should be in that same neighborhood of 15-to-20 points Sunday against Cleveland.
4/7/2013 11:19:00 AM
Description: Orlando forward Maurice Harkless (knee) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Harkless left Friday's game at Chicago after just eight minutes with knee soreness. He had played at least 41 minutes in seven straight games. Andrew Nicholson would likely start if Harkless can't go but he offers minimal fantasy value.
4/5/2013 8:44:00 PM
Description: Orlando forward Moe Harkless left Friday night's game against the Bulls after injuring his left foot.
Insight: Half the team is injured so this is the last thing head coach Jacque Vaughn needs right now. Though not a particularly usefull fantasy player, DeQuan Jones should see a heavy workload at the three if the rookie Harkless is unable to return.
Hot4/3/2013 10:42:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Maurice Harkless had 18 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 42 minutes Wednesday night versus the Spurs.
Insight: Harkless is averaging 19.8 ppg over his last five games. He has been a reliable contributor since the All-Star break and should be owned in more than 40 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
Hot3/22/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Magic small forward Moe Harkless exploded for 25 points and nine rebounds Friday in a loss to Oklahoma City.
Insight: That's a new career-high for the rookie out of St. John's. He's now scored in double figures in each of Orlando's last six contests.
3/17/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Maurice Harkless set a new career high with 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting Sunday versus the Bucks. He added nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 43 minutes of play.
Insight: Harkless has been a valuable fantasy contributor since the All-Star break. Over his last 15 games, he's averaging 12.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 0.7 blocks.
3/1/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Maurice Harkless made 5-of-7 from the field, including a career-high three 3-pointers, with four rebounds, three assists and a steal Friday against Houston.
Insight: Harkless averaged 34 mpg in February and he has upped his production since the All-Star break to 14.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks in seven games. The team seems committed to getting Harkless and Tobias Harris 30-plus minutes at the three and four.
2/20/2013 11:00:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Maurice Harkless has jumped out of the All-Star break with averages of 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last two games.
Insight: Harkless has been playing 35 minutes per game in February. He's still not a consistent game-to-game offensive option but does offer worthwhile defensive numbers.
Hot2/6/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Orlando Magic backup small forward Moe Harkless should get the start on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers with Arron Afflalo likely sidelined for another game.
Insight: With all the injuries to the Orlando lineup, Harkless has averaged 42.5 minutes on the floor over the past two games and is averaging 14.5 ppg, 9.5 rpg and 1.5 apg. The 19-year-old is starting to find his game at the NBA level.
2/3/2013 1:14:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Moe Harkless posted a career-high 19 points Saturday against Milwaukee but he also may have broken his nose.
Insight: Or at least that's what the Orlando Sentinel is speculating. Despite the injury, Harkless still played 42 minutes on Saturday. If his nose is actually broken, he'll probably just play with a mask on Monday against the 76ers.
1/30/2013 11:43:00 AM
Description: Orlando Magic SF Moe Harkless posted a career-high 16 points to go with four boards, two assists, three steals and two threes in 34 minutes with Arron Afflalo out of the lineup on Monday.
Insight: If Afflalo is out again on Wednesday, Harkless becomes a low-end fantasy option.
Cold12/13/2012 11:06:00 AM
Description: An Orlando Sentinel report suggests Moe Harkless could be in danger of losing his spot as the Magic's starting small forward.
Insight: Harkless has struggled mightily in his last six appearances, contributing just 1.7 ppg over that span. If the rookie is forced to the bench, we'd likely see J.J. Redick (13.8 ppg, 5 apg) move into the starting lineup as a second shooting guard.
11/13/2012 10:05:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Maurice Harkless had by far his best performance of the season Tuesday against the Knicks. He gave Orlando 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.
Insight: Harkless missed all of training camp while recovering from an offseason hernia operation and sat out the first three games of the season. The Magic have been searching for a starting small forward with Hedo Turkoglu out so the 19-year-old Harkless' role may continue to grow.
