Wall threads needle to Gortat for dunk vs. Denver

Al Harrington, who had a "setback," according to coach Randy Wittman over the weekend, had a procedure on his sore right knee and will miss at least four weeks and then be re-evaluated

Harrington hasn't played since Nov. 12. He had a staph infection in the knee last season when he was with the Orlando Magic and has struggled to recover.

According to the Wizards, he underwent a diagnostic arthroscopy "to clean out loose particles" in Vail, Colo.

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. 

In the first half against the Nuggets on Monday, the Wizards only had three points from the bench. Chris Singleton had a field goal and a made free throw.
