Rockets guard James Harden said he'll play in Thursday's game against the Blazers with a jammed left wrist. Harden hurt the wrist March 18 when he took a nasty spill at Denver. "It will get better but if I keep banging on it and keep falling on it then it's going to keep going back too square one," Harden said Thursday morning.

Though Rockets guard James Harden said he would need to test his sprained left ankle one more time, Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that after watching Harden at shootaround he was optimistic Harden would be able to play tonight against the Oklahoma CIty Thunder. "He looked good," Bickerstaff said. "Unless something crazy happens between now and game time, he should be ready to go."
Harden left his status as "We'll see." "Feel better than I did yesterday," Harden said. "Every day has been improving and getting better. I've been rehabbing and getting treatment every single day, icing it, just doing the things that hopefully will put me in position to play tonight. "I feel good I'll play. If I feel all right, I'll play."
