Houston Rockets star James Harden has been ruled out for Sunday's road game against the Denver Nuggets due to a thigh injury.
Harden sustained a left thigh contusion when he was hit by Karl-Anthony Towns' knee in the third quarter of Friday's win against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
He was limping, but returned in the fourth quarter and finished with a season-low 12 points and five assists.
Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Harden is also doubtful for Monday's road game against the Utah Jazz.
Harden, 30, is averaging a league-leading 36.1 points, 7.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds in 43 games this season.
