Harrington to Play With Torn Meniscus?
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.
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.
