It’s unclear if Harden will miss multiple games due to injury, as the Nets will play another straight game this week against the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday / Wednesday.
Kyrie Irving will be available for Tuesday’s away game in Chicago, but will not be available to play at home against the Thunder due to not being vaccinated.
