News: Harkless contributed across the board Saturday, scoring 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 FT, 0-2 3Pt) to go with seven boards, two assists, two blocks and three steals. Impact: After sitting out Wednesday and Friday to rest, Harkless was back in the starting lineup Saturday. The 21-year-old started at small forward, as coach Jacque Vaughn continues to tinker with different lineup combinations during the preseason. Harkless, who started 41 of 80 games last season, has worked at shooting guard as well and could help fill the void left by the departure of Arron Afflalo. He's showcased improved ball-handling skills in the preseason and looks to have addressed his free throw woes (59.4 percent last season).(RotoWire, )

News: Harkless started his first preseason game at shooting guard. He finished with five points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one steal, one rebound, and one assist in 24 minutes during Monday's contest against the Hornets. Impact: Harkless's move into the starting lineup displaced Evan Fournier. Things to take away from this game are Harkless' improved dribbling and his pullup jumpers, areas he vastly improved this summer. Another positive sign for Harkless is his improved free-throw stroke, converting on 5-of-6 this preseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Harkless supplied 12 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal off the bench in 24 minutes during the Magic's preseason overtime victory. Impact: Harkless looked comfortable handling the rock in spurts, an issue that has plagued him thus far in his career. Another positive takeaway are the free-throw makes for a career sub-60 percent charity stripe shooter.(RotoWire, )
