Last week, Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash gave an update on James Harden’s injury.
“Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden experienced a setback while conducting an on-court rehab session on Monday. Following an evaluation today which included an MRI, Harden will remain out indefinitely. Updates regarding his status will be provided as appropriate,” the Nets said in a statement, according to CBS.
Coach Steve Nash was really unsure as to the timeline of his return.
“Really, I knew. I was at the workout, but we didn’t know until you have the scan. So I just found that news as well,” Nash said. “Yeah, back to square one. We’ll rehabilitate him and get him back whenever we can, and who knows when that will be.
“And we’ll support James and we’ll support our performance team in getting him back in his best condition as possible. And hopefully that comes sooner than later, but there’s no guarantee. We just keep chipping away, we keep moving forward and we hope for a speedy recovery.”
On Sunday night, former Los Angeles Lakers trainer Marco Nunez was on The ProFanity Nation Podcast in the Los Angeles Lakers Fan Club. Answering questions on LaMelo Ball’s returning from injury in four weeks, Kevin Durant’s calf, and James Harden setback.
“So, I don’t know where the location of the hamstring injury. Whenever you strain a hamstring, it depends on how close it is to the tendon area or mid-belly or lower, depending on the timeline of when the athlete will return,” said Nunez.
“Hamstrings are very tough, especially in sports diametrically as far as explosiveness and changing direction. So, you have to be very careful; he had a little of a setback. They are very tricky because of the location of the tear, and they haven’t reported where it is at. However, that is a huge component of that.”
On Sunday afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets beat the Phoenix Suns 128-119, Kyrie Irving led the Nets with 34 points, six rebounds, and 12 assists.
