Al Harrington Injury: Nuggets Forward Plans To Play Against Timberwolves

Denver Nuggets reserve forward Al Harington says he will play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night despite having a torn meniscus in his right knee, as Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reports. Harrington did mention being limited in practice, but his plans haven't changed regardless:

You’re limited. You can’t really bend and explode. For me, the biggest thing it’s bothering me with is rebound. But I can move forward and laterally. I want to finish this thing out. And this is the best part of the season when you’re in the hunt like this, trying to get a playoff spot. So I’m not going to leave the guys hanging.

Harrington, 32, has averaged 14.5 PPG and 6.2 RPG for the Nuggets in 57 games this season. He left Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors with the knee injury, but he's expected to fight through it at this point.
