Despite rumors to the contrary, Al Harrington will miss the Knicks' remaining five games with a shoulder injury. Harrington, who's put up 17.7 points per game off the bench this season, had been playing through the sore right shoulder until he and Donnie Walsh agreed that he ought to shut it down and get the thing fixed. Recovery time is expected to be on the order of a few months. Based on what we've seen, it's possible that the injury was aggravated when Bill Walker ran into him headfirst the other night.
With Harrington's contract expiring this summer, it's possible that we've seen the last of him as a Knick.
