Lin and Harden after a heart-breaking loss

James Harden banged up his left knee during Wednesday's 110-107 loss to the Bucks. Afterward, though, he said he would be alright.

The incident happened at the 5:52 mark of the second quarter when Harden banged knees with Bucks guard Monta Ellis. Harden remained down on the floor for a few minutes, but was able to walk off under his own power. He would come back with a wrap around his left knee and finished the game with 25 points, seven assists, and four steals.

When asked after the game about his knee, Harden said, "It's kind of sore, but it should get better."

The Rockets have a day of practice on Thursday before flying out to Orlando to play the Magic on Friday.
