News: Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody underwent surgery on his right knee Friday, and will miss at least six weeks of action while recovering.

News: The Cavaliers announced on Wednesday that they are recalling forward Luke Harangody from the Canton Charge, their D-League affiliate. Harangody was previously with the Cavaliers for a one-game stint last Saturday, when he scored 16 points and had 10 rebounds against the Wizards.
Analysis: Harangody will likely see some solid minutes down the stretch, as the Cavaliers may rest some veterans. Despite this, Harangody has never consistently shown he can be a difference maker, so leave him on waivers with so little time left in the season.
News: Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody made his return from the D-League on Saturday and was inserted immediately into the starting lineup against the Wizards. Harangody, whose previous high in scoring this season was five points, had one of the best games of his career, putting up 16 points and 10 rebounds in 37 minutes, for the second double-double of his career. He shot 6 of 11 from the field and also added three steals as the Cavaliers defeated the Wizards, 98-89. After the game, Harangody returned to his D-League team, the Canton Charge, to play in Sunday's playoff game.
Analysis: Harangody has only ever scored in double digits seven times in his career, and this was also his third career double-digit rebounding game. He has never been a particularly strong player, and while he did receive the start on Saturday, he was immediately sent back down after the game. As long as he is not with the team, he has no Fantasy value.

He appeared in three games (three starts) with the Charge this year, averaging 13.3 points and 8.7 rebounds in 34.7 minutes per game.
Analysis: Harangody has minimal Fantasy value even when he's with the Cavaliers. Now that he's been demoted he should not be owned in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody continues to be a minor option for the team, as he played just five minutes in the teams 89-84 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday. He did manage to put up five field-goal attempts in his limited minutes, however he managed to miss all of them to finish with no points. He also added four rebounds, all on the offensive glass, and an assist and a steal.
Analysis: Harangody showed good energy off the bench in the loss however thats about all he is good for. He is averaging just 7.9 minutes per game on the season and should not be owned in any Fantasy formats.

News: Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody gave his new team some quality minutes off the bench on Wednesday versus the Kings. He has missed four games since joining Cleveland as he's dealing with a hip issue. Harangody scored 15 points and grabbed eight boards in 25 minutes of action in the Cavs' 97-93 win. He shot 50 percent from the field -- 6 for 12 -- and hit both hit foul shots. The rookie added two blocks and a steal for his new team.
Analysis: Harangody hasn't played a lot this year, but he was buried in Boston and has been banged up in Cleveland. While he has potential, especially on a young team, he's averaging just under three points a game on the season. This is clearly not the year to own Harangody, but keep tabs on him heading into next season.
News: The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody will not play for the rest of the week, in order to rest his ongoing hip issue. He missed his first two games as a Cavalier with the injury, but has played in the last three. On Friday, he scored a career-high 18 points against the Knicks.
Analysis: Harangody will miss three games to rest the issue. Coach Byron Scott said he wants his injury to heal in full. The move makes sense, with the season all but lost for the Cavs. Harangody, a rookie out of Notre Dame, is averaging just under three points per game in a reserve role. He should be ignore in all Fantasy formats, although he has more of a chance to play while with Cleveland.
News: Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody scored a career-high 18 points in Friday's 119-115 win over the Knicks. Harangody, who was listed as questionable prior to the game with a hip injury, was 6 of 11 from the field in the victory, including 2 of 6 from downtown. He went a perfect 4 of 4 from the charity stripe and also chipped in with four rebounds and a pair of assists in 22 minutes off the bench.
Analysis: Harangody played very well on Friday, although these types of performances haven't come quite often for the rookie. He should be in line to see more minutes with all the injuries the Cavaliers have in the frontcourt but needs to prove he can produce consistently before he garners any real value. Until he does that, consider Harangody only viable in deeper formats.
News: NBA.com reports that Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody will play Friday against the Knicks after injuring his hip in Wednesday's game against the Spurs, his debut with the team after being traded from Boston. Well see, coach Byron Scott said. Hes pretty padded up and everything so well see if hes effective. He looked pretty good this morning, but I told him I would really prefer for him to get ready for Sunday. But he was adamant about it, that he was OK and he was ready to go."
Analysis: Even though he will play through the pain Friday, Harangody is still assimilating into a reserve role in Cleveland. He's not used to big minutes, but is sure to see more on the struggling Cavs. Still, Harangody doesn't warrant much Fantasy attention until he proves his worth on a consistent basis.
News: The News-Herald of Ohio reports that Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody was held out of practice on Thursday with a right hip pointer. Coach Byron Scott said he's listed as doubtful for Friday night's game at the Knicks.
Analysis: Keep an eye on Harangody and hope he can return soon, but he has minimal Fantasy value when healthy. Let him prove himself first before you consider using hi in the majority of leagues.
News: Cleveland forward Luke Harangody made his debut for the Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Unfortunately for him it was cut short. He played just eight minutes after sustaining a right hip pointer. He went 1 for 2 from the field finishing with two points. That is all he would contribute for Cleveland. Harangody is being considered day to day.
Analysis: Harangody was the first of the new Cavaliers to make his debut, but now he's hurt. He's expected to add some frontcourt depth with Anderson Varejao and Antawn Jamison done for the year. While the rookie could see some decent playing time with the Cavs, his Fantasy value is extremely low right now. Owners should leave him on the waiver wire at this stage of the season.
News: New Cleveland forward Luke Harangody is inactive for the Cavaliers' game against Philadelphia. Harangody, who was acquired in a deal with Boston at the trade deadline, reportedly passed his physical Sunday but has not practiced with the team. Cleveland's other acquisitions -- Baron Davis and Semih Erden -- are in town, but will also be inactive against the 76ers. Our policy is for guys to get a practice in before we let them play," Cleveland coach Byron Scott said. "They didnt get here in time to do that yesterday, so theyre not going to be out there tonight. He is likely to play Wednesday against San Antonio.
Analysis: Harangody is eager to provide the physical force that the Cavaliers have been lacking all season, especially when Anderson Varejao went down with an injury. Every time I go on the court, I go all out, the rookie from Notre Dame told NBA.com. Im not the most athletic guy, so get to work out there. If someone gets hurt, so be it. Harangody isn't much of a Fantasy option and is averaging just 2.3 points per game this season. Leave him on waivers in all Fantasy formats for the time being.
News: The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the three players the Cavaliers acquired in deadline deals are considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, because they haven't practiced yet with their new team. Baron Davis, Luke Harangody and Semih Erden all arrived in Cleveland on Saturday and took their physicals.
Analysis: Harangody is not likely to play a huge role for the Cavaliers, but with the likes of Anderson Varejao done for the year he could see more playing time in Cleveland than he ever enjoyed with Boston. He is not a player we recommend owning in Fantasy at this time, but is worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues once he gets into the fray.
News: Forward Luke Harangody and center Semih Erden were not with the Cavaliers on Friday night after getting traded to the Cleveland on Thursday. They are expected to arrive in Cleveland on Saturday and could make their debuts on Sunday. The Cavs sent a second-round pick in 2013 to Boston for the pair of big men.
Analysis: With Anderson Varejao done for the year, Harangody may see some more playing time in Cleveland. He averaged 2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 28 games when he was in Boston. Until the rookie carves out a niche in Cleveland he's not worth picking up off the waiver wire. Continue to ignore him in all Fantasy formats.
News: The Cavaliers acquired rookie forward Luke Harangody and rookie center Semih Erden in a trade with the Celtics. Shortly before Thursday's deadline, the Cavaliers sent Boston a second-round pick in 2013 to the Celtics in exchange for the players. Cleveland acquired the selection last summer from Minnesota in the deal for guard Delonte West. The Cavaliers have been interested in Erden, a 7-footer from Turkey, for some time. He's averaging 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 37 games. Harangody, who played at Notre Dame, averaged 2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 28 games. He led the Big East in scoring and rebounding last year. Semih and Luke are two young players that weve liked dating back to their respective drafts. Each has worked hard, continued to grow and proven themselves on the court this season, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant told NBA.com. Luke and Semih also understand what winning culture is about and were happy to have them as part of our team. We look forward to their continued growth with us.
Analysis: Harangody could see a boost in Cleveland with additional playing time, but let him prove it first. If he gets an increase in minutes and is able to produce then add him off the waiver wire, but for now don't run out and pick him up even after the trade.
News: Like most NBA rookies, Boston forward Luke Harangody hasn't made a big impact this season. In the 27 games he's seen action in Harangody hasn't logged much playing time. He sees just under nine minutes per contest for the Celtics and averages 2.3 points per game. His career high was a 17-point effort back on Jan. 7 against the Raptors. That's the only game the rookie has scored in double figures too.
Analysis: The former Notre Dame product plays on a deep and veteran Boston team. Harangody will buy Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins and Shaq minutes at the end of quarters, but that is about it. Fantasy owners shouldn't pay too much attention to Harngody at this time. Leave him on the waiver wire in all formats.
News: Celtics forward Luke Harangody saw his first extended minutes in a few games during Tuesday's 112-95 win over the Cavaliers. Harangody logged 21 minutes in the blowout victory and finished with eight points on 3 of 6 shooting from the field. He also chipped in with four rebounds and a pair of assists.
Analysis: Harngody saw big minutes on Tuesday night, however, that was mostly because the Celtics were up big the entire game and emptied their bench. While the rookie out of Notre Dame has shown flashes of his potential this season, he simply does not see the court enough to have any Fantasy value at this point of the season. Continue to ignore him moving forward.
News: Celtics F Luke Harangody recorded the first double-double of his young career on Friday night against the Raptors. The rookie set career highs with 17 points and 11 rebounds in the 122-102 win. He went 8 of 11 from the field, including 1 for 1 from downtown, but missed his lone attempt from the charity stripe while playing 27 minutes off the bench. Harangody also chipped in with two blocked shots and an assist in the victory. "I just thought his energy was fantastic," coach Doc Rivers said. "When he slows down, he can make shots. He's an uncanny rebounder for his size." Harangody is averaging 4.2 points with 3.8 rebounds over his last five contests.
Analysis: Harangody has seen an increase in minutes ever since Kevin Garnett (calf) went down with an injury but Friday's performance was his best by far. He made his first 3-pointer of the year and put up double-digit scoring for the first time in his career. Harangody did play well, but he is still down on the depth chart in Boston. "On this team, you have to take a look around the locker room and realize who's around," Harangody said, understanding his limited playing time. "This was just one game. Nothing has changed. My role is always defensive and get a rebound." Only pick him up in the deepest of formats while Garnett is out.
News: Boston rookie forward Luke Harangody got a bit more playing time on Wednesday against New York as Kevin Garnett was ejected after two technical fouls. Harangody made the most of his minutes as he logged a double-double. He scored 16 points and grabbed 12 boards. He was 2 for 5 from downtown and also had two steals.
Analysis: Harangody did play well, but he is a ways down on the depth chart in Boston. He'll see mop-up duty for the Celtics, which won't translate into much Fantasy value. He can be ignored on Draft Day.
News: Boston rookie forward Luke Harangody shot 1 of 6 from the field in Wednesday's preseason opener against Philadelphia. He did connect on 3 of his 4 free-three attempts and finished with five points. He also notched three rebounds in his 14 minutes of action.
Analysis: Harangody is a rookie on a veteran heavy team and isn't likely going to log many minutes. At this time he doesn't have much Fantasy value and should not be drafted this fall.
