Maurice Harkless was smiling wide and often Thursday, and for good reason. The Trail Blazers’ small forward said he is no longer experiencing pain, which caused him to miss the Wednesday morning practice session for what the team termed as a strained left foot. He said he returned to the court for the team’s Wednesday evening session and practiced fully again on Thursday. “I don’t even know how it happened or when it happened,’’ Harkless said. “My foot just started hurting, and I thought my tape was too tight, but I cut the tape off and it just got worse. So I sat down … but it was just a mild strain. Nothing serious. I felt great today.’’
