James Harden has been struggling with the same flu that has been circling through the NBA locker rooms the past two weeks. He missed the second half of the Rockets' game on Tuesday.
But Harden said Wednesday he's feeling better and is good to go against Chicago.
It's crucial for the Rockets to have Harden, who is the best thing the team has going. Jeremy Lin has struggled offensively, and with Carlos Delfino questionable, they need Harden to spread the floor. And create. And score at the rim. And draw fouls. You get the picture.
Harden is averaging 24.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists this season, shooting 43 percent from the field, as teams have started to scheme to attack him specifically. We'll see if some Vitamin C frees him up against one of the best defenses in the league in Chicago.
