Rockets' star guard James Harden missed practice on Monday and is officially listed as day-to-day with a sore knee, according to Rockets.com's Jason Friedman.

Harden injured his knee late in the Rockets' loss to the Kings on Sunday night. With about 3 1/2 minutes left in the game, he went up for a layup and seemed to bang his knee with Kings' forward Jason Thompson. Harden winced in pain but stayed in and finished the game.

Harden is on a hot streak. He's scored at least 30 points in each of the Rockets last three games and has averaged 7.3 assists and 8.3 rebounds.

The Rockets have two more games -- at Golden State Tuesday and at the Clippers Wednesday -- before the All-Star break. Harden is the only Rocket who will play in the All-Star Game in Houston on Sunday.
