Sources: Harkless (ankle) available for Blazers

Portland Trail Blazers forward Maurice Harkless is available to play in Friday's Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Harkless tested his sprained right ankle in warm-ups and declared himself ready to go against the Denver Nuggets.

Harkless, who started 53 of the 60 games he played during the regular season and all seven of Portland's playoff games thus far, suffered the injury when he landed on the foot of teammate Zach Collins midway through the second quarter of Wednesday's Game 2.

The series is tied at one game apiece.
