    James Harden (sprained left ankle) may not be able to practice on Monday.

    If Harden can't practice on Monday, that will put him in jeopardy of missing Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder, and owners can expect another update tomorrow. If Harden is forced to the sidelines, Corey Brewer would likely return to the starting lineup, while Dwight Howard and Michael Beasley would likely do the heavy lifting on offense. Stay tuned. Mar 20 - 6:15 PM

    I think we take for granted how durable Harden has been as a Rocket.

    Throw this game. Sit harden and bring him back fresh the next night against the j*zz. That's your must win game.

    This will happen especially if harden sits. I can see goudelock getting some burn tonight also.

    Sit him both games, lose them both. One step closer to getting our draft pick back!

    JB's updated gameplan now is to simply get durantula all tied up in a viscous web of stickum

    He is like Scola, doesn't really jump all that much, so keeps his body a little fresher than most.

    I would start and play a 6 man rotation as below

    Goldilocks
    KJ
    Scrub Dekker
    Harrell
    Terrance Jones

    6th man: Josh SMith

    Give this game away. Shove a big middle finger to the TNT crew.

    Utah on the back to back is the big one.

    Sit harden for Utah, this game is probably a loss , but our game tomorrow vs utah is the biggest of the season and its the second of a back to back.
    We will need harden fresh for that one

    they might beat our asses by 30 now, but they still know they don't want no part of us in the playoffs

    Nah, sitting Harden just gives him an excuse to party. He'd have so much energy that he'd hit up the clubs after getting back to Houston from OKC.
