The instance of a professional athlete faking an injury in order to force a trade.

The term originated from Al Harrington's "Back Injury" that led to him being traded from the Warriors to the Knicks for Jamal Crawford.

Can be used to describe the injury a mythical body part.
Baron Davis wasn't very happy with the Clippers, and they didn't want to trade him. When Baron pulled his harrington the Clippers quickly worked out a trade.
