James Harden injury status vs. Mavs
The Sixers initially had Harden listed as questionable for Wednesday’s showdown with left Achilles soreness, per the NBA’s official injury report. However, after testing his injury before the game, Harden has now been upgraded to available against the Mavs.
In other injury news relevant to the Sixers, star center Joel Embiid (right calf tightness) is also good to go for Philadelphia.
Harden, 33, is in his 14th year in the NBA and second as a member of the Sixers franchise. He’s averaging 21.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, 10.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game across 53 appearances this season (all starts).
The former Arizona State star is shooting the ball with great accuracy from behind the three-point arc in the 2022-23 campaign, at least by his standards — Harden’s current 38.4% three-point percentage is his highest since the 2011-12 season.
Expect the Sixers to beat the Mavericks at home on Wednesday, especially with Harden in the lineup. After all, the Sixers have been tough to beat at home all season, as they own a 26-11 home record. But with regard to the question, Is James Harden playing tonight vs. the Mavs, the answer is yes.
