Houston Rockets guard James Harden is not expected to play Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers but will participate in the NBA All-Star Game this weekend in Houston, Yahoo Sports reported.
Harden tweaked an ankle in the third quarter of Tuesday night's 116-107 win over Golden State when he stepped on David Lee's foot. He returned to the game and finished with 27 points but reported swelling afterward.
"I could barely walk," Harden said after the game. "I'm still limping."
Harden also is dealing with a bruised left knee.
