Moe Harkless is questionable for the Trail Blazers’ game against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight, according to Trail Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl:

Harkless, who has scored in double-digits for a career-best 11 straight games and is averaging 14.9 points (on 50.8 percent shooting), 6.0 rebounds, and 1.4 steals during that stretch, rolled his ankle in the waning minutes of Wednesday’s loss after stepping on the foot of Bucks forward John Henson:

Averaging 13.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.0 steals in 31 minutes per game on the season, Harkless is having a breakout year for the Trail Blazers. Contributor Dan Marang wrote about Harkless in an article published this morning:

Go back and look at nearly every NBA Championship team in recent memory, and every one of them has a guy who can do a little bit of everything. They can do without the ball on offense and they create opportunities on defense, all the while doing so on a team-friendly contract. While Portland is still a step or two away from contending for a title, it may be time to think of Harkless as that guy going forward.

The Trail Blazers and Grizzlies tip off tonight at 5:00 p.m. PST in Memphis.
