HOUSTON, United States — Houston Rockets star James Harden will be out for at least two weeks with a hamstring injury, the National Basketball Association team announced on Monday.

The Rockets said Harden suffered a grade two strain of his left hamstring in a game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.


Harden scored 40 points before leaving late in the fourth quarter of the Rockets’ double-overtime win.

He is averaging 32 points, nine assists, five rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for the Rockets (26-9), who have been struggling of late, losing five of their last six games.
