Magic forward Al Harrington to continue knee rehab; no timetable for return

Al Harrington - Harry How

The 14-year veteran had a routine knee checkup on Tuesday, which appointment went well, but his doctor has yet to clear him for a return to the court.

The Orlando Magic will find themselves without veteran big-man Al Harrington for a while longer as Harrington's doctor has yet to clear him for on-court activities, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Harrington visited a doctor in Vail, Colorado on Tuesday for a routine checkup. The visit went well, Robbins says, but the 14-year veteran "will continue with his rehabilitation regimen."

Harrington, whom the Magic acquired from the Denver Nuggets in August as part of the Dwight Howard trade, has missed all of training camp, the preseason, and the regular season as he rehabilitates from multiple offseason knee surgeries. In his last season with the Nuggets, the New Jersey native averaged 14.2 points and 6.1 rebounds in just 27.5 minutes in 64 appearances, 63 of which came as a reserve. As a result of his strong play, he finished third in Sixth Man of the Year voting.

The Magic's crowded frontcourt, as well as Harrington's status as a veteran seeking a role on a contending team, make him an obvious candidate for a trade, but he'll need to return to action before any team considers making Orlando an offer for his services.
