Rockets' Harden to miss Wednesday's game with Clippers

Houston Rockets guard James Harden will miss Wednesday's matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers because of several injuries.

It is Houston's final game before the All-Star break.

Harden, who was already dealing with a bruised left knee, tweaked his ankle in the third quarter of Tuesday's win over the Golden State Warriors.

The All-Star guard suffered the injury after landing on the ankle of Warriors forward David Lee on a fast break layup.

Harden finished the contest, but there was reportedly swelling following the game.

Over 53 games this season, Harden is averaging career-highs with 26.1 points, 5.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.
