Steve Nash has confirmed that 2018 NBA MVP James Harden is out for Game 4 vs the Bucks. Harden is still nursing a hamstring injury.
James Harden has been arguably the most important player at times for the Brooklyn Nets this season. The player’s offensive prowess has come up huge for the franchise on multiple occasions. And after watching him meld into the team’s system so well, fans were hoping to see him dominate against the Bucks as well.
Unfortunately for the Nets, however, Harden came up limping within the first minute of game-1 and hasn’t returned to the court since. And while the franchise found themselves dominating in games 1 and 2 without the Beard, their opposition finally stepped up to the plate in game-3.
With the series now sitting at 2-1, there could be a comeback on the horizon for Milwaukee. With that being the case, Brooklyn desperately needs Harden back out on the floor. But is he ready yet?
Will James Harden play in Game-4?
The injury Harden has occurred is an aggravation of his earlier hamstring injury, which forced him to miss quite a few games. Fortunately for the star, reports have said that the injury isn’t too severe.
Unfortunately, the star won’t be able to return soon enough to play in game-4 against the Bucks. Steve Nash confirmed the news but also implied that there is a possibility that the star is reasonably close to a return.

But with the momentum now partially in Milwaukee’s favor, will he be able to return before it’s too late? Or will Brooklyn perish to their opponents in the second round?
Only time will tell, we advise you to keep your eyes peeled on this one.
