James Harden ‘bothered’ by sore shoulder

James Harden Rockets

James Harden’s 30-point scoring streak continued on Monday despite a sore shoulder sustained during a game over the weekend.

During Saturday’s game between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, Harden got tangled up with Steven Adams. The result was a sore shoulder that required attention from the Rockets’ training staff during the game. Later that evening, Harden downplayed the impact of the sore shoulder on his play.

Following Monday’s win over the Dallas Mavericks, in which Harden eclipsed the 30-point mark for the 30th game in a row, Mike D’Antoni said the sore shoulder bothered his star throughout the night.

Harden will likely continue to downplay the effects of the soreness on his play. However, now that D’Antoni has made it public that Harden is bothered by it, this will be something worth monitoring. Harden is as important to the Rockets as any player is to his team.
