The Houston Rockets have suffered a bit of a setback for the next few weeks thanks to an injury to their best player. James Harden suffered a hamstring strain during the double overtime game against the Los Angeles Lakers and will be out at least two weeks recovering.
The team has been suffering various injuries this season, with Chris Paul and Clint Capela also being sidelined throughout the course of the year. When CP3 and The Beard are on the court together, the Rockets are 15-2.
Harden is the NBA’s leading scorer with 32.1 points and 9.1 assists per game, putting together an MVP-type performance thus far.
It’ll be a stretch that will be tough on Houston, but luckily, it’s only a few weeks.
