    Rockets' James Harden: Commits season-high 10 turnovers in Saturday loss

    Harden scored 33 points (7-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 15-18 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 36 minutes on Saturday in a loss against the Trail Blazers. Harden had a season-high 10 turnovers on Saturday and you have to give credit to this Trail Blazers team that has revamped their defense over the last couple of weeks. The Beard usually has more than a few turnovers each game, but having this many will certainly raise some eyebrows around the league. Going forward, continue to deploy Harden in every fantasy format and understand that there will be off-nights like this one.

    Rockets' James Harden: Hand examined by training staff Saturday

    Harden had his hand tended to by the team's training staff after Saturday's game, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports. Harden did not play in the final 8:45 of Saturday's blowout loss to Portland and he was seen icing his hand on the bench towards the end of the game. Whether or not the move to keep him on the bench was precautionary or not is unclear, but it is worth noting that the Rockets were down by 26 points when he left the contest. The Rockets will be off until Tuesday when they take on the Warriors, and there's no indication at this point that Harden's hand injury will cause him to miss time.

    Rockets' James Harden: Struggles from the field in Thursday win

    Harden scored 17 points (4-19 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-7 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, six assists and two steals in 36 minutes on Thursday in a win against the Suns. Harden couldn't get it going via scoring on Thursday, but he did manage to distribute the ball well amongst his Rockets' teammates. It was an odd start, as Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled a hockey line change on the entire starting lineup just four minutes into the game and sat them for the rest of the first quarter. The trick appeared to work as the Rockets eventually won the game, but there's nothing to worry about with Harden. He's still one of the best players in the league and this was just an off-night for him shooting the ball.

    Rockets' James Harden: Drops game-high 26 points with 14 dimes Tuesday

    Harden scored a game-high 26 points (10-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and matched his season high with 14 assists while adding four rebounds and two steals during 35 minutes in Tuesday's 115-102 win against the Heat. Harden's numbers over the last five games have been ridiculous: 30.8 points, 8.4 assists, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals for the All-Star guard. He's also hitting 3.0 three-pointers a contest during that stretch and has back-to-back double-doubles. This is one of those times where Harden is well worth the price in daily formats.

    Rockets' James Harden: Erupts for 40 in Saturday's loss

    Harden scored a game-high 40 points (12-20 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 10-10 FT) while adding 11 assists, seven rebounds and four steals in 37 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Wizards. He's now scored 30 or more points in five of his last seven games, and Harden is averaging an eye-popping (even for him) 30.6 points, 9.3 boards, 8.6 assists, 3.3 threes and 1.4 steals over that stretch. Despite his heroics, however, the Rockets have dropped three straight games, and Harden will need to start getting more help from his teammates if the team is going to hang on to a playoff spot, much less make a move up the standings.

    Rockets' James Harden: Scores 33 points Friday

    Harden had 33 points (8-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 15-17 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and one block in 39 minutes during the Rockets' 116-108 loss to the Cavaliers on Friday. Harden got to the free-throw line a ton, but it wasn't enough to keep his Rockets within striking distance down the stretch. Despite three turnovers and an off shooting night, Harden has connected on his highest percentage of shots from the field in January, and he is responsible for creating offense for himself and others at extremely high usage rates.

    Rockets' James Harden: Stays hot versus Pelicans

    Harden stayed red hot in Monday's win over the Pelicans, scoring 35 points (11-20 FG, 10-10 FT, 3-5 3Pt) to go along with 11 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in 41 minuts. The Beard is undoubtedly playing some of his best ball of the season at the moment, as he came within two assists of his third triple-double in four games. Harden is averaging 30.3 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 3.5 threes over that stretch, which corresponds to Dwight Howard going down with an ankle injury, indicating that he has taken on an even greater share burden in the latter's absence. Howard could return for Wednesday's game versus the Spurs, bur Harden is clearly locked in at the moment.

    Rockets' James Harden: Triple-double versus Mavericks

    Harden registered his second triple-double in three games Sunday versus the Mavericks, scoring 23 points (7-18 FG, 6-6 FT, 3-10 3Pt) to go along with 15 rebounds, 10 assists and a pair of blocks in 36 minutes. The star guard had not registered a single triple-double this season prior to Wednesday's game against the Pistons, but he appears to be playing some of his basketball of the season over the last four days, averaging 28.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 10.7 assists in three games. Harden's shooting percentage still leaves something to be desired for his owners, but it is hard to argue with his all-around production on a nightly basis. He should continue to see an extremely heavy usage rate and is locked in as one of the top fantasy contributors out there.
