Al Harrington Closer to Return
The Orlando Magic might receive some help soon from a player who hasn’t played yet this season. Forwad Al Harrington said he is making progress as he attempts to return from issues in his right knee after a staph infection took hold in the joint last May.
“I feel like I’m really close now,” Harringon said. “I’m just going to keep working, keep rehabbing. I feel like there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel. I’m not sure exactly when I’ll probably get an opportunity to go out there, but I feel like it should be soon.”
Harrington would give the Magic a boost at power forward — a position depleted now that Glen Davis likely is out for the season following surgery to repair a fractured left foot.
There’s also a possibility that the Magic will attempt to trade Harrington, who at 32 years old doesn’t fit into the franchise’s long-range plans.
