James Harden Injury: Rockets Star Out Two-Plus Weeks With Hamstring Strain

James Harden left the Houston Rockets’ win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, and the star guard is going to miss some time.

Harden underwent an MRI on Monday, and the Rockets later announced Harden will be out for the next two weeks with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. He’ll be reevaluated after that two-week period, but will not necessarily return at that date.

Harden has led the Rockets to a 26-9 record as of Monday while leading the league in scoring with 32.1 points per game. Houston had lost five games in a row before its double-overtime win over the Lakers on Sunday.
