Brooklyn Nets star James Harden recently suffered a setback with his hamstring injury, but he’s grinding to make sure he’s ready before the playoffs. 

James Harden’s first season with the Brooklyn Nets hasn’t gone according to plan, as the nagging hamstring injury has sidelined him for a good chunk of the campaign. Harden was all set to try and get back on the hardwood recently, but a setback with his injury has delayed things.

While fans in Brooklyn may have been a bit bummed about this, Harden is ready to put a smile on their faces. The superstar met with the media on Thursday and said he’s making improvements with his injury and is planning to be all set prior to when the postseason arrives.

James Harden is ready to do whatever is necessary to be ready for the playoffs

With Harden working on his conditioning and mixing things up in his workouts, it’s obviously great to see for the Nets. He’s been able to play in 34 games for the team this year, averaging more than 25 points per contest. As soon as Brooklyn pulled off the blockbuster trade to land him, folks in the city started to dream about winning the NBA Finals.

With Kevin Durant also battling injuries this year, head coach Steve Nash is chomping at the bit to have his two superstars on the court together at full health. Don’t forget about Kyrie Irving either, as the three standouts form quite the trio.

With Harden motivated to get healthy as soon as possible, it really could turn out to be an unforgettable season for the Nets. The Barclays Center very well could be jumping once the playoffs do arrive and the team makes a push for a title.
