"I can barely walk. Still limping," Harden told reporters.
"I kind of felt the momentum going our way in the third quarter … so I
didn't want to shut it down."
For his part, Harden was quoted in last night's gamer that he wants to play. "Why not? I'm tough," he told reporters.
Harden is a top-10 fantasy player. In 53 games, he's averaging 26.1 points, 1.96 3-pointers, 4.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 1.9 steals and .5 blocks.
Rockets James Harden will miss Wednesday's game at Clippers with ankle injury but will be ready for Sunday's All-Star Game.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT
J.J. Watt is by no means a small man. In fact he is a very large fella and clocks in at a solid 6′ 5″, 295 lbs. However, perceptual contrast is everything especially when you take a photograph of him standing next to 7′ 6″ Yao Ming. This is a great photo but it doesn’t compare to Yao’s time in Africa or him playing golf. Great lunch with @yaoming today. Have a feeling...

This video was made as a tribute to Mr. James Bucklin, whose valentine will always be Yao Ming. Many people don't understand what Yao is or what he could have been had injuries stayed far away. We miss the big fella and only hope he is doing well. This is a bitter sweet video.
PS. no one made this video for James, that was a joke.
Jeremy Lin had a block on one end of the court and then went coast to coast for a dunk on Francisco Garcia of the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. Those two impressive plays were not enough though for the Houston Rockets as the Kings won 117-111.Lin finished with 12 points but fouled out.

After tallying a huge block, Lin dribbles coast-to-coast (note at :05 seconds; Lin's merciless handles in crossing Demarcus Cousins) and slams it home in Garcia's dome.With this impressive block...
Ryan Hollins of the Los Angeles Clippers may regret this spur of the moment decision during their game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Hollins was frustrated and as Lin took a tumble in front of him, he used the moment to blatantly kick Lin. Ryan, you can expect a call from Mr. Stern’s office today.
