Al Harrington wanted to be in town and working out with his new teammates at Verizon Center but still hasn't shown up because of a medical emergency in the family.

Harrington, who was signed to a one-year deal at the veteran minimum of $1.4 million by the Wizards earlier this month after he was waived by the Orlando Magic, was hopeful he could help organize a mini-camp at Verizon Center before the team starts training camp Sept. 28.

Instead, John Wall, Martell Webster and rookies Otto Porter and Glen Rice have been working out there this week. 

Nene, Bradley Beal and most players on the roster are expected to be training together after the Labor Day weekend.

Coach Randy Wittman told CSN earlier this month that Nene has been rehabilitating in Denver all off-season and should be healthy.

The addition of Harrington, who is coming off of playing a career-low 10 game in his only season in Orlando because of a staph infection in his right knee, should help the Wizards in easing back Nene.  

Harrington flew back to Las Vegas after signing with Washington.
