The Rockets said Harden suffered a grade two strain of his left hamstring in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

Harden scored 40 points before leaving late in the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ double-overtime win.

He is averaging 32 points, nine assists, five rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for the Rockets (26-9), who have been struggling of late, losing five of their last six games.

The team said doctors would re-evaluate Harden’s injury in two weeks.
