It was back to business as usual for James Harden on Wednesday as he was one of the last Rockets off the floor during shootaround. He said he was readying to play against the Bulls.
James Harden gave it his shot. He tried playing, but he wasn't having his usual effect. He left at the half and did not return against the Jazz.
