The Houston Rockets have had the Golden State Warriors' number this season. However, when the teams meet on Saturday, the Rockets may not have the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player.

Houston guard James Harden is listed as questionable for the game in Oakland, Calif., because of a cervical neck strain. Harden was bothered by soreness Thursday during the Rockets' 111-106 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. He was seen receiving treatment to the neck and right shoulder during the contest.

The Rockets have used different means to beat the two-time defending champs in their first two head-to-heads since Golden State prevailed in a seven-game conference finals last May.
