Saturday in Atlanta, James Harden tweeted his ankle pretty bad from a collision with Kent Bazemore.

After the game Harden was quoted saying how tough it was the keep up with the game. Harden shot 0-4 in the fourth quarter after the injury occurred.

If Rockets lose James Harden for even a short period of time, Houston’s playoff hopes could go down the drain. Usually the more you play on this injured foot, the tougher it will be in the future.

Rockets need to let him sit now so he can be available in more important games. Let’s hope for the best as Harden is averaging 28.6 points along with 7.2 assists per game.

Multiple sources say James Harden's ability to practice tomorrow in OKC in doubt with sprained left ankle. Rockets play OKC Tuesday.

Many may recall when Harden arrived to training camp out of shape and much of that was due to a badly sprained ankle he incurred over the summer.
