Philadelphia 76ers say James Harden out through All-Star break with hamstring strain

The 76ers announced Monday that superstar guard James Harden will miss the team's final two games before the All-Star break -- Tuesday at home against the Celtics and Thursday in Milwaukee against the defending champion Bucks -- as well as the All-Star Game in Cleveland this weekend as he continues to rehab the hamstring strain that kept him out for the final few games of his Nets tenure.

"I think it's more to make sure he's right, healthy and ready to go," 76ers coach Doc Rivers told reporters following Monday's practice, when asked why the decision was made to sit Harden down for the next week.
