Al Harrington Injury: Broken Nose From Andrew Bynum Elbow Knocks Nugget Out Of Game

Al Harrington has suffered a broken nose after being elbowed in the face (apparently inadvertently) by Andrew Bynum during the fourth quarter of the Denver Nuggets' Game 3 against the L.A. Lakers on Friday, reports ESPN's sideline man Ric Bucher. Harrington bled on the court after the shot to the dome.

Bucher also reported that Harrington will likely need to wear a mask when he returns to action later in the series.

Harrington had a strong bounceback season for the Nuggets, averaging 14 points per game. George Karl has had the luxury of using bizarre, but effective frontlines this season, mixing and matching Harrington, Danilo Gallinari, JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried and Timofey Mozgov.

Harrington scored seven points before being knocked out of Game 3.
