Denver Nuggets forward Al Harrington underwent knee surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus that had plagued him for weeks, according to Aaron J. Lopez of Nuggets.com. Harrington had played 18 games, including the seven games against the Los Angeles Lakers in the playoffs, with the injury.

During the regular season, Harrington averaged 14.2 PPG and 6.1 RPG over 27.5 MPG as one of Denver's key reserves. The knee injury clearly limited Harrington during the postseason, though, as he averaged just 9.7 PPG and 4.3 RPG while shooting an abysmal 32 percent from the field.
