(Portland Trail Blazers Moe) Harkless injured his ankle while practicing with the Puerto Rican national team, forcing him to fly back to Portland for further evaluation. Here’s what the Puerto Rican national team’s associate director Joel Katz had to say:

“However, Katz was adamant that Harkless’ trip to Portland isn’t a guarantee that Harkless won’t play in the Olympic qualifier which begins this upcoming Monday in Mexico. ‘It’s not that his participation is in doubt, but we need clearance from the Trail Blazers. Once they evaluate him, it will be determined whether he can participate in the qualifier’, said Katz.”
