Al Harringon Has a Torn Meniscus; Could Be Done for the Season

There’s some potentially awful news out of Denver, as it was discovered that Al Harringon tore his meniscus last night, and he could be lost for the season. Reports the Denver Post: “Nuggets forward Al Harrington left Monday night’s game against Golden State at the end of the third quarter and did not return. Afterward he revealed he has a torn meniscus. His loss would be devastating to the Nuggets’ bench and locker room, as he’s been one of the team’s best players and leaders all season long. He’s also been durable, playing in all 57 games this season with averages of roughly 14 points and six rebounds, despite nagging injuries all year long. He had 10 points and one rebound before exiting the Golden State game. […] Now, he said, both he and team doctors/trainers are exploring ‘a couple of different options’ in terms of treatment. With just two weeks left until the playoffs, Harrington, who added he’s never played on a torn meniscus before, wants to continue to play. ‘I’m going to stay in the race,’ he said.”
