NEW YORK -- Forwards Jared Jeffries and Al Harrington are questionable for the New York Knicks' game at Washington on Saturday.

Jeffries missed the second half of the Knicks' 106-104 loss to Toronto on Thursday because of a hyperextended right knee. An MRI exam Friday confirmed a bone bruise, and the team said Jeffries would be listed as day-to-day.

Harrington said after the game his left knee has been hurting, but further testing revealed only soreness.

Harrington is second on the team with 17.9 points per game. Jeffries averages just 4.7 points but is the Knicks' top defensive player.
