Al Harrington, who at 33 has been battling knee issues since last season when he has an infection in there, issues that have kept him out since Nov. 12, is now going to be out a while longer.
Harrington had knee surgery again on Monday and will be out at least a month, the Wizards announced during their game against Denver on Monday. Officially it is a “diagnostic arthroscopy and lavage procedure.” J. Michael at CSNWashington.com has the details.
Harrington has averaged 7.9 points and 1.4 rebounds 18.6 minutes in seven games. His absence has been especially difficult for Wittman who has had trouble finding scoring from his reserves.
The Wizards signed Harrington to a veteran minimum deal off the bench hoping for some scoring punch. Randy Wittman is looking to Chris Singleton, Jan Vesely, Trevor Booker and now Otto Porter for some kind of help off the bench, but is getting it only sporadically. Which is one reason the Wizards are 9-11 on the season now (after a loss to Denver Monday night).
