Harden Day-to-Day After Blow to Head
A day after taking a severe blow to the head that resulted in a concussion, Oklahoma City guard James Harden was listed as day to day by the team and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.
Harden is unlikely to play in the team’s remaining two regular season games, The Oklahoman reported Monday night.
With 1:39 left to go in the first half of the Thunder’s double-overtime loss to the Lakers, Harden was struck in the side of the head by an elbow from Los Angeles’ Metta World Peace.
Harden immediately fell to the court and stayed down while play was stopped for several minutes as referees separated Lakers and Thunder players who were arguing and a flagrant 2 determination was only made after the collision was reviewed on a video monitor at center court.
