Report: James Harden could miss more games due to foot injury


The Rockets are a dangerous team when James Harden and Dwight Howard are on the floor together. Harden’s scoring ability is great, but his play-making is underrated, and they pose a lot of problems for defenses.

Harden missed Saturday’s game against the Wolves due to a foot injury, and it doesn’t seem to get better for the Rockets. According to Marc Stein of ESPN, it will be a little longer for Harden in terms of returning:

In the grand scheme of things, missing 2 games out of 82 doesn’t mean much, and they should take their time with his health. Houston is a powerful offensive team, but they need to be at full strength to be considered a top team in a loaded Western Conference. Hopefully this is nothing serious, as the NBA has lost too many stars to injury in the early going.

This is just something to watch, and you can expect Harden to miss minimum time, as this is not serious. The Rockets have bigger problems on their hands, as they look to find a rotation that works well together, and find a good trade for Omer Asik.

    Please provide facts to support that Harden’s playmaking ability is underrated. It seemed clear that ball became sticky when he was handling it.
