James Harden Shooting after Sixers Practice Thursday
Harden suffered a right foot tendon straight on November 2nd and was ruled out for at least a month. In a recent update from NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Noah Levick, everything is progressing as planned and he’s on track to rejoin the Sixers in early December.
“I feel good,” he said. “On pace. Started slowly, ramping it up a little bit. I’ve been running on a treadmill with some resistance and things like that. I’ve been doing some pool workouts. We’ve got a plan, a script that we’re trying to stick to. Overall, I feel good.”
“(The pain is) going down,” Harden said. “I started off with a boot, but the boot kind of made my ankle and my foot stiff. So I took the boot off after maybe about four or five days. I wasn’t supposed to, but it wasn’t doing good. But yeah, just shooting, trying to get my bounce back with my shot and things like that … and just keep building from there.”
The Philadelphia 76ers have gone 3-2 without Harden and are currently 7-7 on the season. Tonight, they will host Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center.
