With the second overall seed in the Western Conference secured and the NBA Playoffs just around the corner, don't expect the Oklahoma City Thunder to rush the return of key reserve James Harden from injury to play against Denver on Wednesday night. Harden suffered a concussion from Metta World Peace Sunday afternoon in a double overtime loss to the Lakers that caused national attention.
Meanwhile, Kevin Durant (28.0 points a game) holds a small lead over the Laker's Kobe Bryant (27.9) for the league scoring title. The Nuggets are battling to lock down the sixth seed in the playoffs with a win against OKC or Thursday at the Timberwolves, combined with a Dallas Mavericks loss.
