  • Rockets' James Harden: Will try to play Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harden (knee) will play Saturday against the Bucks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Harden knocked knees with a Spurs player during Friday's game, but the star won't be forced to miss any action after getting through pregame warmups with no issues Saturday. Coach Mike D'Antoni noted his knee was structurally sound, so Harden will likely see as many minutes as he's comfortable with. He finished Friday's contest with 28 points, seven rebounds and six assists across 33 minutes.

  • Rockets' James Harden: Game-time call Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Harden is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Milwaukee due to a knee issue, Rockets' play-by-play man Craig Ackerman reports. The Rockets haven't provided any details regarding the injury, though coach Mike D'Antoni did disclose that Harden was "nicked up" during Friday's win over the Spurs. Harden scored 28 points to go with seven rebounds and six assists in 33 minutes Friday, and it's quite possible that his questionable status is more maintenance-related than anything else. Regardless, a more concrete update will be available closer to game-time.

  • Harden posted 28 points (6-18 FG, 2-11 3Pt, 14-16 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and one blocked shot across 33 minutes in Friday's 124-109 win over the Spurs. While Chris Paul had a dazzling performance, Harden struggled everywhere except at the charity stripe, where he only missed two of 16 attempts. He was ice-cold from long range as he only shot 18.1 percent from beyond the arc. Without the free throws, it would have been Harden's worst night this season. While Harden owners shouldn't panic, it appears a healthy Chris Pail has created a new normal in Houston, and as long as it keeps numbers in the win column, Harden will need to shoot a lot better to catch up with Paul's production.

  • Harden had 26 points (8-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 17 assists, six steals, and one rebound in 35 minutes during Monday's 130-123 win over the Pelicans. Harden matched his career high in assists and swiped a season high in steals. Furthermore, he took over as a scorer down the stretch, canning trey after trey to help put the Pelicans away. It's probably safe to assume that the calf discomfort Harden was recently experiencing is no longer bothering him.

  • Harden (calf) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Pelicans, Rockets radio play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports. Harden was listed on Monday's injury report as a precautionary measure while dealing with some discomfort in his left calf, but was never expected to miss any time. He'll be in the starting lineup as usual and doesn't appear to be on any restrictions, though coach Mike D'Antoni could certainly keep a close eye on his minutes. Either way, fantasy owners should go ahead and activate him against the Pelicans.
