Update. Sept 25:
The Oregonian’s Joe Freeman gives the update from Day 1 of practice.
Terry Stotts says Moe Harkless went through about one-third of the Blazers' opening practice today. Harkless' availability will be monitored daily, but there is no change after Day 1.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) September 25, 2018
Trail Blazers forward Maurice Harkless had arthroscopic surgery to remove a loose body from his knee back in March, and it appears that he still hasn’t fully recovered from the operation. Harkless said he’s not 100 percent cleared yet while at Portland’s media day on Monday.
Moe said he's still not cleared 100 percent, and will be limited in practice. There's a goal in mind, but they'll see how the knee responds— Peter Sampson (@PeterSampson) September 24, 2018
Moe Harkless said he will be a limited participant when training camp opens as he continues to work back from late-season knee procedure. He has not been cleared for 5x5 play.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) September 24, 2018
The injury kept Harkless out the Blazers’ lineup for the final nine regular season games and also forced him to miss two of the four games against the Pelicans in the postseason.
Portland has not released an estimated schedule for Harkless’ recovery, but it looks like the 25-year-old forward will be on a reduced workload to start training camp.
