The Brooklyn Nets have suffered from injuries to their roster all season, and that hasn't stopped in the playoffs. James Harden left earlier with a hamstring injury in the very first minute of the game. The Brooklyn Nets will hope that he is alright going forward in the series.
It has been revealed that James Harden will not be returning to Game 1. Furthermore, it seems as though he has left the arena to go get an MRI on his hamstring. Hopefully, James Harden is alright.
While the Brooklyn Nets still have a lot of good players on the roster, James Harden's absence will surely be felt in the playmaking department. He has been the de facto point guard all season and is one of the leaders on the team that runs the offense. Hopefully, the MRI shows good things for James Harden, as there is nobody that wants him to be out with a long-term injury. If Harden is injured, the Brooklyn Nets will need others to step up, and quickly.
