A night after being diagnosed with a bruised foot, Houston Rockets swingman James Harden confirmed that he’s dealing with issues in both of his feet – not just the left foot as originally thought.
Harden confirmed the issue with his right foot as well during a morning media session:
“I got a bruise on the top of my left foot that is sticking out pretty big and then on the right side, I have been having some problems the last couple games so I am trying to get them on the same page and ready to go,” Harden said.
At shoot around Saturday morning, Harden said he wasn’t sure if he would play against the Clippers.
“I have been doing a lot of icing and treatment on my foot, both feet actually,” he said. “We will see how it goes before the game. I will try to get a good warm up and see.”
As Harden mentions, he’s going to try to play through the injury but will test everything out during warmups. He said he does want to be cautious, so it doesn’t appear he plans to push himself early in the season as he doesn’t want to deal with any lingering issues.
