Rockets' Harden out at least two weeks with hamstring injury

Rockets' Harden out at least two weeks with hamstring injury

The Rockets had hoped to limit Paul's playing time in his second game back after missing three games with a groin injury.

The team has made a strong impression on Paul through the first few months of the season holding one of the league's best records heading in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers at 25-9. On Sunday, the Rockets might be without their best player, as James Harden is listed as questionable with a foot injury.

James Harden scored 40 points but departed in the final minute of regulation with a hamstring injury.

Fortunately for Houston, they were able to defeat the Lakers on the last day of the year in a double overtime thriller to snap the losing streak. However, Houston will need other members of their supporting cast to contribute and take the pressure off their superstar.

Packers Expected to Fire Dom Capers
Should Capers, 67, decide to retire, it would end a coaching career that began in 1972 as a graduate assistant at Kent State. He holds a 48-80 regular-season coaching record for the Carolina Panthers (1995-1998) and Houston Texans (2002-2005).

The Lakers reclaimed the lead before Paul went to work in the final minute. The veteran guard tallied 40 points with eight assists, and even more impressive than that, he came off the bench.

Harden limping badly, but smiling, shouting "Yeah, Tuck, yeah, Tuck".

Green, who had checked in for Harden, put in a corner 3 to tie the game with 17.7 seconds remaining, and moments later was isolated on Kyle Kuzma, with Kuzma settling for a long 3 that missed. He's averaging 43.5 points and nine assists in two games against the Lakers this season and should be favored to go off for another huge game. He made a statement early in the game, hitting six of his first eight shots and grabbing 10 rebounds by half-time. But they were still struggling to string together baskets, putting the game, and their pursuit of an end to the losing streak, on their ability to defend the rest of the way as they had only in spurts. The over is 6-1 in the last seven meetings and 5-0 in the last five meetings in Houston.

Timberwolves 107, Pacers 90: Jimmy Butler had 26 points as visiting Minnesota won for the ninth time in 12 games.
