James Harden is still listed as day-to-day and a game-time decision about playing against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. But every indication is that he will miss a second-consecutive game with his sore left foot. Harden went through a long weight-lifting session during the Rockets’ shootaround, indicating that he was not preparing to play that night. He then added shooting drills as the team headed back to the hotel. Houston Chronicle

Houston Rockets star James Harden doesn't take lightly to being told he's Kobe Bryant's bitch -- so says a Lakers fan in L.A., who just sued the NBA player after Harden allegedly punched him for the diss. According to the lawsuit, Harden was on his way out of Greystone Manor nightclub in West Hollywood November 3rd -- riding in the back seat of some SUV -- when he rolled the window down to greet fans.

“The first one, I really did get hit in the face,” Harden said. “I’m trying to appeal that right now. I really did get hit in the face, it was just a late reaction.” The NBA’s policy is to issue a warning after a first offense for flopping. A second violation will draw a $5,000 penalty, which was given to Harden for an incident during the Clippers game where he chased a loose ball to the sidelines with the Clippers Blake Griffin. “I don’t want to be known as a flopper or a guy who is looking to get calls, that type of player,” Harden said. “That type of player I’ve never been. It was a bad call.” A successful appeal would mean that Harden wouldn’t owe the NBA any money in fines and would have just one flopping violation to his name. If Harden loses the appeal, though, the next time he would be cited for flopping would be considered a third offense and he would be fined $10,000. CSN Houston

Who would make your “Dream Team” when it comes to the league’s top dressers? Baron Davis: I would say Tyson Chandler and Russell Westbrook. Those would kind of be my two fashionistas. I would go with LeBron as far as that gentleman prepster meets street culture. I like James Harden, he has an original look. And probably Dwyane Wade, because Dwyane Wade, he’s the one guy who kind of actually started the whole trend of really thinking outside the box. uptownmagazine.com
