Marc Spears from Yahoo! Sports reports that James Harden will miss Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Harden, already battling a knee injury suffered the previous game, rolled his ankle as he stepped on David Lee's foot on the way to the hoop in the third quarter of the Rockets' 116-107 win over the Warriors.

The Rockets All-Star still managed to come back and finished with 27 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.

After the game, McHale said about Harden, "I give him a lot of credit. He sucked it up and came back."

Jeremy Lin said of Harden, "Man, he was a soldier tonight, for sure. So he played through a lot of everything. He hurt his other knee as well. He had a brace on there, so he's definitely banged up, but we're going to take advantage of this All-Star break and get some rest."

According to Spears, that rest starts with the Clippers game.
