James Harden Injury Update: Harden Cleared To Play, But Will Sit Out Against Nuggets

Great news for the Oklahoma City Thunder and Thunder fans everywhere: James Harden has been cleared to play again, though Harden will not play in Wednesday night's game against the Denver Nuggets.

With the Thunder locked into the No. 2 seed, there's absolutely no reason to rush Harden back from his concussion. Harden can count his blessings, as he is very fortunate not to be seriously injured following Ron Artest's Metta World Peace's vicious elbow to Harden's head.

Wednesday night's game is Oklahoma City's final contest before the playoffs, where the Thunder will likely take on the defending champion Dallas Mavericks in the first round. It appears that the team will indeed have Harden back for that series, which is certainly welcome news for the Thunder.
