Bryce Harper's visit with Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., on Monday confirmed what the Washington Nationals had initially diagnosed in the outfielder's left knee: patella bursitis. Harper was given two injections, one of platelet-rich plasma and another of cortisone, in order to help combat the swelling and inflammation that has plagued him for two weeks. His knee was placed in an immobilizing brace and the 20-year-old will be reevaluated by the Nationals' doctors in one week.
