UPDATE 10: 13 PM: Nets coach Avery Johnson said after the game that they would not know anything until Wednesday morning when an MRI is done on Harris’ knee but added that they are “concerned.” Harris said it was not that serious and that swelling was already going down after the game.
Harris is out for sure against the Thunder on Wednesday, but after that remains to be seen pending the MRI.
Avery also said that the injury was a “game changer” in what ended up being a 111-100 Knicks win.
9:53 pm: Devin Harris, the leading scorer for the New Jersey Nets, left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury after teammate Kris Humphries fell on him.
The severity of the injury is not known, but Harris did not return to the game.
The injury came at the end of a sequence of end-to-end action between the Nets and Knicks, when Humphries went up to block a Wilson Chandler layup and ended up landing on top of Harris.
After he left the Nets fell behind as they struggled to generate any consistent offense. Harris has averaged 18.2 points a game for the Nets but had just 8 in this contest at the time of the injury.
