Harden in Houston for COVID Tests After Missing Camp’s Start
HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden is back in Houston after missing the start of Rockets training camp. Harden was going through the NBA’s COVID-19 testing protocols on Tuesday. Coach Stephen Silas said after practice that the disgruntled superstar had arrived in the city and was getting tested but didn’t have much information beyond that. Silas said he hadn’t spoken to Harden and had no comment on reports that the All-Star wants to be traded. The Rockets traded Russell Westbrook to Washington for John Wall and a first-round draft pick last week. The team has shown no interest in trading Harden.
