James Harden Average stats: 25.2 points per game, 8.0 rebound per game, and 10.9 assist per game.
On Tuesday night, Nets coach Steve Nash rendered a crucial concession that Harden could be out before the start of the NBA playoffs next month. Harden experienced a loss on Tuesday, according to the Nets, and will be out temporarily.
He was out for 2 matches before returning on April 5 to face the New York Knicks. On March 31, James Harden sustained a hamstring strain in a game between the Houston Rockets. He compounded the condition at the time and will be out then, despite the fact that the original prognosis had him out for just 7-10 days.
The playoffs begin in less than a month, and with Harden out due to his injury. Brooklyn’s chances of clinching home-court advantage in the Eastern region appear to be dwindling. Seeing as Harden was purchased via Houston early in the season. The trio of Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving have combined for just seven games and 186 minutes. Harden and Durant would have had 22 matches to adapt to each other if they had returned to the stable. This number would now be greatly reduced.
The Nets said in a report that “updates on his condition will also be given as needed.” The assessment, also involved an MRI, determined that James Harden will be out indefinitely. Coach Steve Nash expressed sincere uncertainty more about timeframe. On Monday, Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden suffered a disappointment during an on-court recovery practice.
LaMarcus Aldridge, a new invitee and seven-time NBA All-Star, was however shocked by his abrupt resignation the other week. Because of an irregular heartbeat, Aldridge wanted to retire from the game right away. With only five games with the Nets in his fifteenth season.
Tough day for me but I appreciate all the love….. on social media and people who reached out personally. 🙏🏾— LaMarcus Aldridge (@aldridge_12) April 15, 2021
The Nets, with the 3 starters, are more of a crown threat than that of any team in recent memory. With fewer on-court period, they’ll be seeking first ever title in the franchise’s N.B.A. record. Since purchasing Harden through the Houston Rockets in a January 14 exchange, the Nets have only had a stable Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving on the floor for 186 minutes in 7 games so far this season.
