James Harden goes down with head injury in Game 4
James Harden is taking a beating in the Western Conference semifinals.
Harden went down in the first five minutes of Game 4 between his Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors after taking a shot to the head. He took a pass and cut to the basket for a layup attempt but had it blocked by Kevin Durant.
Durant appeared to have caught Harden’s head, knocking the Rockets star to the floor.

Durant was holding his right elbow after catching Harden in the head with it, so both players were hurt. Durant removed his elbow sleeve after that.
When the game resumed after a commercial break, Harden was on the floor, so he did not miss any time.
The reigning NBA MVP is already playing with an eye issue that was suffered in Game 2 of the series. Golden State holds a 2-1 series lead.
