James Harden is anxious to get an MRI on a hyperextended elbow injury that could see him out of action for a significant period of time.
The Houston Rockets guard injured his elbow in an uncomfortable collision with David Lee late on in the Rockets 102-99 over-time loss to the Golden State Warriors Thursday.
Harden had scored 39 points in the game before the injury, with the 34 of those points coming in the second half.
The loss acted as Houston's first in a while after an eight-game winning streak, but rather than just the loss, Harden's health is a pressing issue.
At the time of the collision, Harden thought he had actually broken his arm but thankfully those fears seem to have dampened.
The MRI was scheduled for when Houston arrive in Phoenix for their game on Sunday.
According to Harden, his elbow was still in pain after the game as he played on through the pain.
He admitted afterwards that "hopefully it's nothing too serious."
