    that's a crushing blow. they are still without garcia too as backup. 9 man rockets rotation is the word from around tonights game.

    but then again, the rockets defense should improve. and again, the spurs are missing leonard and green too.

    Thanks LT, my book hasn't adjusted yet so Spurs it is.

    Agree with Setos sentiments though it feels like a Houston win now probably big!

    Hard to replace Harden's value, big loss for the rockets. I'll take the spurs.

    Line was moving a bit in that direction long before the announcement. I wonder if there was some inkling that he was questionable even though there was no available information that I saw saying harden had any injury. Otherwise, I would expect the line to move more then from houston -1 to spurs -1.5/-2.

    I don't really bet the NBA just spot plays here and there. It's these ones that usually lose though!

    He is key to beating Spurs.

    Maybe Aaron Brooks will score 50 now.

    Rockets lost a player, so Spurs became the favourite.

    Who will be the main benefactor for Harden sitting out tonight, will it be Howard, Lin or Parsons?

    Who will the coach rely on to take on the responsibility of taking more shots.

    Personally I think it would be Parsons as the Spurs don't have a match up for him with Leonard amd Greene being out

    From rotoworld at 6:24pm:

    Updating previous reports, Rockets coach Kevin McHale suggested that James Harden (thumb) might be able to play on Tuesday.
    When asked whether Harden was sitting out, as was previously reported, McHale replied, "We'll see." He gave the same response when asked whether Jeremy Lin would start at SG in Harden's absence, and it's possible he's just being coy with reporters, but there's at least a chance that Harden will be active. Stay tuned

    Any word on if he's in or out?

    We have seen this before

    Houston wins by 15 and nobody blinks an eye

    Harden just a ball hog, has not changed Houston at all

    Lin scored 38 points against the Spurs last season when Harden was injured. Rockets lost in overtime at San Antonio.

    Pretty sure the game was in Houston. Houston was a 5 or 6 point dog and lost by 8 in OT.
