X-rays negative on Harden's wrist; will play Sunday

Share

HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden will play on Sunday night when the Houston Rockets visit the Dallas Mavericks after X-rays on his injured right wrist were negative.

Harden first injured it last Sunday in a win over Boston and aggravated it on Friday night in a fall in the first half of a victory over Philadelphia. The win extended Houston’s winning streak to a season-high seven games.

Harden leads the NBA in scoring with 36.6 points a game. He said when he fell on Friday night that he was worried the injury was worse than it was.

He says: “I was. But I’m happy it’s not.”

As for what he can do to protect his wrist, Harden says: “Just try to not fall on it. That’s the only thing I can do. Keep icing it, keep getting treatment on it. But when you keep falling on it, it keeps aggravating it and it keeps getting worse.”
