The Philadelphia 76ers are set to end their three-game journey on Monday when they take on the Houston Rockets and they get a little healthier on the floor.
After missing 14 games, James Harden will officially return to the court on Monday against the Rockets. Beard hasn’t played since Nov. 2 with a sprained tendon in his right leg, and after bringing him back together at point guard, the Sixers welcome him back into the roster.
Harden returns to Houston, where he spent a little over eight seasons and won the 2018 MVP award. He also led the league in scoring three times in his Rockets uniform.
The 6ers lost the first two games of this trip to Cleveland and Memphis, and Harden’s return will help them get back on track. Philadelphia will try to at least save the game before returning home for a 7-game home stand.
The end in Houston is scheduled for 8:00 pm EST.
In a new sham deal, the Sixers acquire Jonathan Isaac from the Magic as part of the deal.
