Amid all the college basketball excitement late last night, and the somber news about Joe Paterno passing this morning a bit of unfortunate news slipped through the cracks, and it hits a little closer to home. Our boy Jorts broke his right wrist last night during a game against Denver.
LEX 18 reports Harrellson suffered the injury when he fell to the ground at the end of the first overtime of the Knicks’ double-overtime loss to the Nuggets. He had two points and six rebounds in 17 minutes.
Harrellson is expected to miss six weeks after surgery, which has yet to be scheduled.
All of us at KSR wish Jorts well. For a guy who not many expected to make it, he’s doing the Big Blue Nation proud representing in The Big Apple. Good luck in your recovery, big guy.
