Harden to play Sunday after X-rays negative

Harden has high praise for Mavs’ Doncic: ‘He does a lot of things to impact the game’ | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Chris Paul blocked Jalen Brunson's final shot Sunday night to give the Houston Rockets a 94-93 win, so the narrative becomes how the Rockets were able to win despite subpar performances from their two superstars. Doncic said after the game he felt a "pop" after securing an uncontested rebound with about four minutes left.

"We've had a lot of games where it was ugly and we lost earlier in the season", Harden said.

The Rockets' newfound and welcomed good health, however, appeared like it might be short-lived when Harden headed for precautionary X-rays on his right wrist after falling on it in the second quarter of Friday's blowout win against the Sixers.

Head coach Rick Carlisle wasn't sure exactly what Doncic did to his knee, but he is hoping that the issue isn't a serious one, and doesn't keep Doncic sidelined for Tuesday's game against the Spurs (8 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension).

"He's great", Harden said of Doncic, via the Sporting News.

The top four teams at the end of the season will earn automatic qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Fiji finished third after defeating U.S. 24-14 in the bronze medal match.

Luka Doncic had 19 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for the Mavericks, and fellow rookie Brunson finished with 18 points.

A view of the shoes of Houston Rockets guard Iman Shumpert (1) as he warms up before the game against the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center. He re-entered with 3:03 left in the third and converted a three-point play and then a 3-pointer to put the Rockets up 79-70.

"I can't be aggressive on both ends of the floor", Harden said of his foul trouble.

"I don't know if he banged his knee or he landed on it amusing, but the hope is that it's not serious", Carlisle said. "We will know more tomorrow". Perhaps the only intrigue left for this season, besides where Dallas will be positioned in the lottery, is Dirk Nowitzki's pursuit of Wilt Chamberlain on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

In four games with the USA Men's World Cup Qualifying Team, Reynolds shot 45.9 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from 3-point range.
