Are you saying this based on the Rotoworld update? Because if you are it seems like you're twisting his quotes a bit. Rotoworld update: "Hopefully it is not that serious, just a pull on the hammy," Ha

When you find out your playing Harden this week:  

Whoa, guys, pump the brakes. This is James Harden. If you’re selling for pennies on the dollar, you’re handicapping your championship big time. In some cases (depending on the pieces) where GMs don’t

Derozan fell into Harden's knee in the last game. It didn't look all that serious when it happened. He obviously continued to play after

Rest he's ok .Back to Back games could beat Dallas without him Spurs Monday hopefully you didn't need him today.

Anybody else a little concerned about D'antoni giving him some nights off now that the Warriors are being decimated with injuries? They have one more b2b after this one and they may rest him against ATL on the 25th.. which is a Sunday.

Harden is like RWB, he hates resting, and unlike players from Warriors, whether they admit it or not, these guys are also playing for personal glory or individual awards. He is unlikely to sit out games as long as healthy, maybe sit out during final week but not march

Not sure if I buy that tbh. Resting him 1 or 2 more games ros will not be a deal breaker at all in terms of chasing individual awards... he's already a lock for the mvp according to most. Like what Lakers_Fan2 said, they already rested him for soreness in his knee against a lottery team (even in a tight race for first seed) so what makes you think they won't do it again when they're now 2.5 games up on a team riddled with injuries? He means the world to that franchise and for them it's probably not worth the risk to run him out there against bad teams on b2b.

Any chance he sits during the Sat/Sun B2B?

 

No Harden doesn't sit unless he absolutely has to. He wants his MVP, he wants this #1 seed, and D'antoni doesn't believe in sitting stars unless they're hurt. 

 

Never say never but I would say the chances are extremely low.

Didn't he sit for rest just a little over a week ago on the first night of a back to back? ...and nothing's going to affect his bid for MVP. He's got that locked up.
