Rockets' James Harden (thumb) out against the Spurs
The Rockets have a big one against San Antonio tonight. But they'll have to do it without James Harden.
Harden is out for tonight's game because of a bruised thumb he suffered Saturday against the Grizzlies. He's listed as day-to-day.
This will be the seventh game of the season Harden has missed, as he's battled a few other minor injuries including an ankle sprain.
Harden, 24, is averaging 24.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.9 rebounds in 40 games this season.
