Description: Wizards forward Al Harrington will miss four weeks after undergoing knee surgery, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.
Insight: Harrington has averaged 19 minutes, 7.9 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.7 threes in seven games this season.
 
11/26/2013 10:47:00 AM
Description: Wizards forward Al Harrington is questionable for Tuesday's game against the LA Lakers while recovering from a strained right knee.
Insight: Harrington is averaging just 7.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg and 1.0 apg and has little to no fantasy value.

Description: The Wizards signed forward Al Harrington on Wednesday. SOURCE: Kyle Wiedie, ESPN True Hoop Network
Insight: He passed his physical on Tuesday and now his one-year, $1.4 million contract is official. Harrington was waived by the Magic earlier this month. Fantasy owners probably won't need to keep a close watch on him.
 
8/2/2013 8:52:00 PM
Description: The Magic waived power forward Al Harrington on Friday.
Insight: Injuries limited Harrington to just ten games during the 2012-13 season. He's only 33 so his career certainly isn't over yet. Still, his fantasy stock isn't heading in the right direction.
 
3/21/2013 10:34:00 AM
Description: Magic coach Jacque Vaughn told the Orlando Sentinel that Al Harrington might watch the rest of the 2012-13 season from the sidelines.
Insight: Vaughn already knows what Harrington (5.1 ppg, 2.7 rpg) can do so he'll opt to test out some of his youngsters down the stretch. The veteran Harrington can be dropped from all fantasy leagues at this point.
 
2/26/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Orlando forward Al Harrington (knee) plans to play for the first time this season Tuesday against Philadelphia. SOURCE: Orlando Sentinel
Insight: Harrington produced solid numbers in 2012 with Denver (14.2 ppg, 6.1 rpg) but he is unlikely to play major minutes with the Magic with Moe Harkless and Andrew Nicholson in the fold.
 
1/22/2013 9:46:00 AM
Description: Orlando forward Al Harrington is still sidelined after offseason knee surgery and is targeting a mid-February return, according to an Orlando Sentinel report.
Insight: Harrington produced solid numbers in 2012 with Denver (14.2 ppg, 6.1 rpg) and but his role with the Magic is to be determined.
 
4/29/2012 11:48:00 AM
Description: Denver forward Al Harrington is questionable for Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Sunday against the LA Lakers with a knee injury.
Insight: Harrington produced solid numbers in 2012, 14.2 ppg, 6.1 rpg, and would be missed if he can't go.
 
4/26/2012 8:43:00 PM
Description: Al Harrington will not be available Thursday night against the Timberwolves. Harrington has a sore knee.
Insight: He had ten points on Wednesday so Harrington is probably sitting out merely as a precaution to keep him fresh for the playoffs. Harrington finished the season with impressive averages of 14.2 ppg and 6.1 rpg. He played in 64 of Denver's 66 regular season games this year.
 
4/10/2012 7:57:00 PM
Description: Despite tearing his meniscus in Monday night's win over Golden State, Al Harrington expects to play Wednesday night againt the Timberwolves.
Insight: Harrington claims that his meniscus was already torn and that Monday night he either aggravated the injury or tore his meniscus again. It sounds gruesome but Harrington has actually been pretty affective lately (16.8 ppg in his last five). Denver needs to play well if they want to make the postseason so expect Harrington to be at his best on Wednesday, even if he needs a lot of ice after the game.
 
3/18/2012 10:46:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Al Harrington (knee) returned to action on Saturday night playing a 28 minutes and shooting 4-for-12 for 11 points.
Insight: Fantasy owners should probably still be conservative and leave Harrington out of their lineup until he begins to produce big numbers.
 
3/16/2012 10:38:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Al Harrington (knee) left Thursday night's game in the fourth quarter and has what is being called a contusion but is expected to be further evaluated.
Insight: Harrington played 26 minutes in the last game and had his first single-digit scoring effort in three weeks. Fantasy owners should probably be conservative until an official diagnosis and leave Harrington out of their lineup.
 
3/24/2011 12:48:00 AM
Description: Al Harrington scored a surprising 27 points thanks largely to the five triples in 28 minutes.
Insight: He was 8-of-12 from the field in his best game of the season. It'll take a lot more than one out-of-the-blue monster line to be worthy of a pickup in the vast majority of leagues.
 
2/1/2011 3:00:00 PM
Description: Harrington (foot) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Blazers.
Insight: It seems like something is always bothering Harrington, and this time it's plantar fasciitis. When it comes down to it, he's mainly just a three point specialist with Carmelo Anthony in town. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/25/2011 9:52:00 PM
Description: Al Harrington was burying hitting three-balls in the corner pocket all night to finish with 21 points, five boards, two steals, and six triples in the easy win over Washington.
Insight: The Nuggets are trying to unload his four-year contract with Melo and are not getting any takers. Maybe this helps. Of course it does help that J.R. Smith was benched. Nevertheless, Harrington should be owned in standards and would gain nice value should Melo get shipped out and Al remaining in the Mile-High City
 
1/16/2011 11:41:00 PM
Description: Al Harrington had one of his better games of the season with 18 points, four boards, a steal, and four threes in the loss against San Antonio.
Insight: This isn't the type of line to get NBA teams to take the four-year 28-million dollar contract off the Nuggets' hands. On the other hand, fantasy owners should take notice and this guys could explode should Melo get shopped.
 
1/4/2011 6:01:00 PM
Description: Harrington (thumb) said he will return to the Nuggets on Wednesday when they face the Clippers.
Insight: His shot might be off because he missed four games with a dislocation of his thumb, but feel free to put him back into your lineups. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/11/2010 11:03:00 AM
Description: Harrington had a season-high 31 points and six three-pointers as the Nuggets beat the Raptors.
Insight: Harrington was able to get more minutes and shot opportunities while Carmelo Anthony sat out with knee inflammation. He scored 24 points in his previous four games combined. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/31/2010 1:00:00 AM
Description: Harrington put up 28 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal off the bench for the Nuggets in their win over the Rockets tonight.
Insight: Harrington is currently available in about 20 percent of leagues and is surely worth an add after tonight's game if he's on your league's waiver wire. (RapidDraft.com)
 
10/27/2010 12:52:00 PM
Description: Al Harrington (foot) will play tonight but is likely so not his his full allotment of minutes due to conditioning. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: He is dealing with plantar fasciitis and this injury is one of the worst to hang around for the season for NBA players. His owners might want him to accumulate some value, then think about dealing him before the wheels fall off.
