    Default Article: Another Knick Down

    The Knicks open training camp in 12 days not knowing if both Antonio McDyess and Allan Houston will be unavailable for the start of preseason practice. The team is positive, however, that Othella Harrington will not be joining it then.
    Harrington, who started 64 games last season, will miss most of the preseason and could begin the season on the injured list after it was learned that the veteran forward sprained his right knee on Monday, the Knicks said last night.

    Harrington was injured while working out in his hometown of Houston. He was examined by team doctors yesterday in New York and an MRI showed that Harrington sprained his right medial collateral ligament.

    Team physician Norman Scott said surgery is not necessary. He said Harrington's rehab will include range-of-motion and strengthening exercises.

    The Knicks said Harrington will be sidelined four to six weeks. The Knicks' opener is Oct. 29 against Orlando at the Garden.

    Harrington's injury leaves coach Don Chaney with several options. During the offseason, the Knicks drafted power forwards Mike Sweetney and Maciej Lampe and got Keith Van Horn in a trade for Latrell Sprewell.

    Van Horn is expected to start at small forward and either Sweetney or veteran Clarence Weatherspoon could become the starting power forward until McDyess is healthy.

    McDyess had his third knee surgery in 19 months last April and is not expected to play during the preseason. Houston is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and may not be available for the start of camp. He is expected to be ready by Opening Day.

    Harrington, who missed the final eight games of last season with plantar fasciitis, averaged 7.7 points and 6.4rebounds last season. He is regarded as one of the Knicks' most consistent and hardest working players, but the 29-year-old has been the subject of trade rumors since the Knicks drafted the two power forwards and traded for Van Horn.
