Dr. Andrews Confirms No Long-Term Damage To Harper's Knee

According to reports, Bryce Harper visited Dr. James Andrews on Monday, who checked out his injured left knee and confirmed that he had not suffered any long-term significant damage.

Harper has been suffering from knee bursitis since he collided with the fence at Dodger Stadium on May 13th, but he was not placed on the DL until the 26th. The team expected the swelling to go down, but it did not do so as quickly as the team expected, although it did subside a few days ago. Nothing is yet known about when Harper could return.
