Houston Rockets guard James Harden will rest his sore ankle Wednesday, according to Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears. However, Harden will play in Sunday's All-Star Game. Harden led the Rockets to a 116-107 win Tuesday over the Golden State Warriors. The Beard scored 27 points (hitting 7-of-22 and all 11 of his free throws) to go with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals in 39 minutes. Harden took a nasty fall on his right ankle in the game but kept playing. The post-game report says he had his feet in a bucket of ice and knees wrapped in bandages. "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. — Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) February 13, 2013 Photo: Derral Chen.
