Following the Houston Rockets Tuesday practice, no clarity was given on the status of James Harden for Wednesday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.
Harden continues to try to recover from a sore left foot, which has forced him to miss the last two games, both Rockets victories, and three games overall this season. He has done some shooting over the last couple of days, but could be held out in order to allow for him to completely heal.
Aaron Brooks took a knee to his right thigh in the fourth quarter Tuesday night against Memphis and was forced to leave the game. But he said he should be ready to play Wednesday night. Brooks has given the Rockets 29 points and 6 assists over the last two nights in Harden’s absence and has made 7-of-11 3-pointers.
