Maurice Harkless will be available when the Portland Trail Blazers take on the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday night in Game 2 of their NBA Playoffs opening round series, the Blazers announced. He was upgraded to questionable on Monday with a 50/50 chance of him being ready to play Tuesday.

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian provided comments from Terry Stotts on the return of his forward:

Harkless underwent knee surgery on Mar. 28 with an initial re-evalutaion two weeks after. News came on April 11 that Harkless was targeting a mid-week return, so his return to the lineup follows that target.

The Blazers take on the Pelicans at 7:30 PT on TNT.
