James Harden Injures Right Knee; Rockets’ Dynamic Duo Must Stay Healthy
The Houston Rockets stole the show this off-season when they decided to sign Dwight Howard to a max contract, despite his childish demeanor off of the field and disappointing 2012-13 campaign. Howard’s first preseason with the Rockets was par for the course, but it’s another Rockets player who has stirred up some controversy down south.
James Harden left Friday’s preseason game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a right knee injury that appeared rather serious at first. Harden went down like a sack of potatoes and was later diagnosed with a contusion in his right knee. The early reports sound optimistic, but that doesn’t change the fact that Harden will be relied upon a great amount this year.
Harden has been relatively healthy during the first four years of his career as he’s only missed 14 games since entering the NBA in 2009. At the end of the day; Houston fans should start worrying when it comes to the team’s health as the Rockets can’t win the Western Conference with their top player in street clothes.
