Houston Rockets guard James Harden is likely out of the starting lineup tonight, head coach Kevin McHale said. Harden attended Rockets' shootaround this morning but did not participate. Harden missed the Rockets last contest against the Clippers due to an ailing right ankle.
Harden said he was taking things day-to-day and is icing his ankle twice a day while receiving treatment on his ankle. Harden is having a career-year after being traded to the Rockets from the Thunder, averaging 26 points-per-game with 4.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists a game.
The Houston Rockets currently sit as the 7th seed in the Western Conference with a 40-33 record.
