Devin Harris injury: Hawks guard receives injection in ailing toe

USA TODAY Sports

Devin Harris traveled to New York on Wednesday and received a PRP injection in his ailing big toe for the second time this season.

Atlanta Hawks guard Devin Harris didn't play in Wednesday's loss to the New York Knicks. He was instead in New York where he was having his ailing toe examined by a specialist. According to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Harris received a PRP injection in the toe for the second time this season.

Harris received the first injection during the All-Star break. He indicated that it usually took a couple of days for the soreness and swelling to go away but then he is able to find relief and improved performance on the court.

The effects of the injection usually last about a month and the Hawks tried to time this injection with the playoffs in mind. Harris has played some of his best basketball this season during the second half of the season when paired alongside Jeff Teague in the team's backcourt.

Harris has missed 21 games this season and 20 of them have been linked to his toe. He remains day-to-day but Larry Drew may elect to play him sparingly over the final six games in an effort to have him ready for the first round of the playoffs.
