James Harden injury update: Rockets star questionable (cervical strain) vs. Timberwolves

James Harden might not play against the Timberwolves.

The Rockets star is suffering from a cervical strain and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

Harden missed a game against the Warriors on Feb. 23 due to the neck pain from the injury, and apparently it has lingered.

Although the Warriors ended the Rockets’ nine-game winning streak on Wednesday, Harden followed up with a 41-point performance against Phoenix on Friday.

Harden, 29, is the NBA’s leading scorer. He is averaging 36.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 7.6 assists in 2018-19.

The Rockets have ascended to third place in the Western Conference standings, and they are still within reach of the top spot.
