Dec. 31 8:37 AM PT9:37 AM MT10:37 AM CT11:37 AM ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST20:37 UAE17:3711:37 ET10:37 AM CTNaN:� - Harden returned from his hamstring injury Thursday and scored 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-98.

Analysis: Clearly rusty from the seven-game, 17-day layoff, Harden failed to reach 20 points for the first time this season while on a strict minutes count.

Dec. 29 10:03 PM PT11:03 PM MT12:03 AM CT1:03 AM ET6:03 GMT14:03 11:03 PM MST1:03 AM EST10:03 UAE07:031:03 ET12:03 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 34 points Thursday on 7-of-27 shooting as the Houston Rockets lost to the Boston Celtics 99-98.

Dec. 29 5:54 PM PT6:54 PM MT7:54 PM CT8:54 PM ET1:54 GMT9:54 6:54 PM MST8:54 PM EST5:54 UAE (+1)02:5420:54 ET7:54 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 20 points Friday, going 7 of 14 from the field, as the Houston Rockets fell to the Washington Wizards 121-103.

Analysis: Harden was held out the entire fourth quarter once the Wizards started to pull away, resulting in him matching a season-low for points and seeing his fewest minutes of any game.

Dec. 25 6:57 PM PT7:57 PM MT8:57 PM CT9:57 PM ET2:57 GMT10:57 7:57 PM MST9:57 PM EST6:57 UAE (+1)03:5721:57 ET8:57 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Monday on 7-of-18 shooting as the Houston Rockets lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-107.

Analysis: Harden has shot just 36.1 percent from the floor over his last three games, yet he's still managed to put up gaudy point totals because he's the best in the business at drawing fouls. The MVP candidate is pretty good in other areas as well, as he's averaging a league-best 34.1 points along with nine assists, 5.5 rebounds and 4.4 3-pointers (also a league high) in 18 games since Nov. 5.
Dec. 16 10:00 PM PT11:00 PM MT12:00 AM CT1:00 AM ET6:00 GMT14:00 11:00 PM MST1:00 AM EST10:00 UAE07:001:00 ET12:00 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 28 points Friday, going 6 of 18 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the San Antonio Spurs 124-109.

Dec. 16 2:23 PM PT3:23 PM MT4:23 PM CT5:23 PM ET22:23 GMT6:23 3:23 PM MST5:23 PM EST2:23 UAE (+1)23:2317:23 ET4:23 PM CTNaN:� - Harden (knee) will give it a go Saturday against the Bucks despite being on the injury report.

Harden pulled down four rebounds and dished out eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -6 in his 31:15 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Harden went 3 of 10 from 3-point range.
Analysis: An added benefit to the Rockets' acquisition of G Chris Paul is the lessened workload on Harden. Entering Wednesday, Harden was averaging 35.9 minutes per game, his lowest in his six seasons with Houston. He played just 31 minutes against Charlotte. Harden led the NBA in total minutes in 2014-15 (2,981) and 2015-16 (3,125). Probably not the best news for fantasy owners.

Harden has made four 3-pointers in four straight games and has hit 29 in his past six contests.

Analysis: Harden did miss his first six 3-point tries and judging by his recent exploits, may have left a few spoiled owners a bit disappointed with these final totals. That says how high the MVP candidate has raised the bar during an incredible November he finished with averages of 34.9 points, 10.1 assists and 5.5 rebounds and shot 43.2 percent (67 of 155) from beyond the arc in 13 games.

Analysis: It would seem there's no way Harden would miss out on a chance to square off with King James and the Cavs, especially after totaling 79 points and 26 assists in last season's two meetings.
Nov. 5 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET3:04 GMT11:04 8:04 PM MST10:04 PM EST7:04 UAE (+1)04:0422:04 ET9:04 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 56 points Sunday, going 19 of 25 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the Utah Jazz 137-110.

Analysis: Harden had 22 points in both the first and third quarters, 30 at halftime and sat for the final 7:32 of the blowout. With his 29th point, all in the first half, Harden surpassed Hall of Famer Moses Malone for fifth place in franchise history with 11,120 points. Harden opened the game 10-for-10 before missing a floater in the lane late in the second quarter. The Rockets now have three days off until Thursday's matchup with the Cavs.

Analysis: Harden had another outstanding performance with his fourth double-double. He hit six 3-pointers for the second straight game and shot over 50 percent for just the second time this season. Maybe the best news was Harden matching a season low with just two turnovers after he totaled 14 in the two previous contests.
Nov. 2 8:22 AM PT9:22 AM MT10:22 AM CT11:22 AM ET15:22 GMT23:22 8:22 AM MST10:22 AM EST19:22 UAE16:2211:22 ET9:22 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 31 points Wednesday, going 9 of 23 from the field, as the Houston Rockets topped the New York Knicks 119-97.

Analysis: Harden is averaging 26.6 points, 9.1 assists and 4.8 rebounds so far. It certainly has helped his fantasy owners that Chris Paul has been out, especially in the assist category. He's also making 3.7 3-pointers per game.
Oct. 30 7:26 PM PT8:26 PM MT9:26 PM CT10:26 PM ET2:26 GMT10:26 7:26 PM MST9:26 PM EST6:26 UAE (+1)03:2622:26 ET8:26 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Monday on 8-of-21 shooting as the Houston Rockets lost to the Philadelphia 76ers 115-107. Harden pulled down four rebounds and dished out seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 38:27 on the floor. He added one block and four steals. Harden went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Harden still hasn't hit the 30-point mark this season, matching a season high with his 29 points. The Houston superstar still isn't shooting all that well, making 22 of 58 (37.9 percent) the last three games, including 9 of 26 from deep. Harden's point totals will surely rise once Chris Paul returns but his 4.8 rebound average is way off last season's career-best 8.1 mark.

Analysis: Harden notched his second double-double of the season and shot 50 percent or better for the second time in five games. He did have a season-high eight turnovers, giving him 20 in the past three contests. Harden has ye to hit the boards very hard, averaging 4.0 rebounds after he averaged a career-best 8.1 last season.
Oct. 23 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)05:2223:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 22 points Monday, going 8 of 20 from the field, as the Houston Rockets fell to the Memphis Grizzlies 98-90.

Oct. 21 8:20 PM PT9:20 PM MT10:20 PM CT11:20 PM ET3:20 GMT11:20 8:20 PM MST10:20 PM EST7:20 UAE (+1)05:2023:20 ET10:20 PM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 29 points Saturday, going 10 of 19 from the field, as the Houston Rockets defeated the Dallas Mavericks 107-91.

Analysis: Playing without Chris Paul, who is week-to-week with a left knee injury, Harden frequently bulldozed his way into the paint for layups while also keeping hot from beyond the arc. He's hit at least four 3s in each of the first three games while averaging 27.7 points and 8.7 assists.
Oct. 19 7:47 AM PT8:47 AM MT9:47 AM CT10:47 AM ET14:47 GMT22:47 7:47 AM MST9:47 AM EST18:47 UAE16:4710:47 ET9:47 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Wednesday on 8-of-21 shooting as the Houston Rockets defeated the Sacramento Kings 105-100.

Analysis: It was a heavy workload considering he played 36:24 the previous night, also scoring 27 points, but the Rockets needed his big minutes with Chris Paul sitting out.
Oct. 18 11:06 PM PT12:06 AM MT1:06 AM CT2:06 AM ET6:06 GMT14:06 11:06 PM MST1:06 AM EST10:06 UAE08:062:06 ET1:06 AM CTNaN:� - James Harden scored 27 points Tuesday on 10-of-23 shooting as the Houston Rockets topped the Golden State Warriors 122-121.

Analysis: Last season's NBA MVP runner-up put up a stat line similar to his 2016-17 averages in his first game sharing a backcourt with Chris Paul. Harden still saw quite a bit of time at the point in the season opener, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect his assist numbers to take a significant dip if at all.
July 8 1:02 PM PT2:02 PM MT3:02 PM CT4:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST0:02 UAE (+1)22:0216:02 ET3:02 PM CTNaN:� - The Houston Rockets have signed Harden to a four-year, $160 million contract extension, giving him the richest contract in NBA history at $228 million over six years. The Rockets said Saturday the extension will run through 2022-23 season but will not kick in until 2019. That means it will not affect their salary cap this season, so the Rockets are free to continue their roster upgrade. They added Chris Paul earlier this summer.
Analysis: Harden is coming off of his finest season. Moving to point guard for new coach Mike D'Antoni, Harden averaged 29.1 points, an NBA-leading 11.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds and finished second in the MVP race to former Oklahoma City teammate Russell Westbrook.
