    Let's thank our lucky stars he's ok, and put him in bubble wrap until after the All-Star Game. With a healthy Harden and Howard, this team is good enough to beat anybody, regardless of seeding. We just need to get both of them HEALTHY!

    [Insert just about any teams head coach] is going to run [insert same teams highest minutes per game player] into the ground...

    Look at the minutes and minutes per game leaders in the league and this formula works for A LOT of teams. That is if you believe that ~36 per game is considered running a player into the ground. And just note that in the 22 games since Brewer got here Harden is down to 34.7 per game.

    Trainers say he can go. Player says he can go. He should go.

    I'm all for resting if there is a serious issue, including this Bulls game for Harden if he needs it, but this running players into the ground thing just doesn't feel apt for how McHale is using Harden this year.

    Really there's only 1 guy this season who I think is guilty of it and that's Thibs with Butler.

    James Harden is a tank. This dude has played through so many injuries, how refreshing is that for us Rockets fans?

    It's a shame how much of a struggle it is to get him consistent help. Dude has to morph into Jordan for us to pull out big games.

    This. Just wait till both players come back feeling at least 85%. *Dwight Knees?* We can move on with ease. Plus with TJ back.
