PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Forward Maurice Harkless was available to play for Portland in Game 2 of the playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.

Harkless had a minor procedure on his left knee in late March and had missed 11 games.

Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts did not say whether Harkless would start or have restricted minutes, only that he was available.

In his sixth NBA season, Harkless played in 59 games for the Blazers in the regular season, starting 37, and averaged 6.5 points and 2.7 rebounds.
