Denver Nuggets forward Al Harrington left Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter, and after the game he revealed to reporters that he has a torn meniscus in his knee. Harrington admitted that he injured his knee "a couple of games ago," according to Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post, but that the Western Conference playoff race has him exploring treatment options that would allow him to play for the remainder of the season.
Harrington has been an important scorer off the bench for George Karl and the Nuggets this season, and the 13-year veteran's holds the fourth-highest average in scoring (14.5 ppg) and rebounding (6.2 rpg) on the team. Denver currently owns the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket, but is just one game ahead of the Phoenix Suns and 1.5 games up on the Utah Jazz.
