James Harden’s vision issues in Game 2 appear set to be a one-off, or so the Houston Rockets hope.
According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, Harden has visited with an eye doctor, and there is optimism that he will have no further vision issues after being hit in the eyes in Game 2.

This is pretty good news for Houston if the optimism isn’t misplaced. Harden had clear issues dealing with the aftermath of the eye injury in Game 2, even if he still scored 29 points. Houston probably can’t win this series if he isn’t at full strength, but the trend looks good for Game 3.
