Harden re-injured the hamstring that sidelined him for 20 games in the second half of the season during the opening minute of Game 1 on Saturday. Harden immediately went to the locker room and did not return.
Harden had an MRI, the Nets have not released any details on his condition beyond the “right hamstring tightness” of this announcement. However, the tone of postgame quotes from the Nets players and coaches appeared pessimistic about a quick return.
“I’m heartbroken for him….” Nets’ coach Steve Nash said after the game. “You never want to see that when someone gives everything they have.”
The Nets only had their big three for seven regular season games. However, they had all three in each of the five first-round games against Boston.
