James Harden exited Wednesday’s matchup against the Houston Rockets early due to tightness in his right hamstring. He left the game at the 4:48 mark in the third quarter and went back to the locker room to be examined.

“We’re gonna monitor it. We’ll see how he feels in the morning,” said Nets head coach Steve Nash I don’t have a lot to tell you, but we feel optimistic it’s not a long-term thing and we’ll just monitor it.”

Nash said Harden came over to the sidelines and told the team trainer about his hamstring in the third quarter.
