On Tuesday night James Harden was briefly forced to leave the game when Draymond Green swiped him across the face and clipped him in both eyes.

Harden was able to return to the game several minutes later but was still bothered by his eyes.

Harden was tested after game 2 and despite suffering contusions on both eyes he’s supposedly cleared to play for game 3.


After the Rockets’ flight landed in Houston on Wednesday afternoon, Harden went straight to an eye doctor. Tests revealed no damage to either of Harden’s corneas, a source said, and the Rockets expect his vision to be completely clear by Saturday’s Game 3.

Harden suffered contusions in both eyes and a laceration on the inside of his left eyelid when he was inadvertently hit in the face by Golden State’s Draymond Green a little more than five minutes into the Rockets’ Game 2 loss on Tuesday.

We now have close-up pics of James Harden’s eyes two days after the fact and they’re looking pretty jacked up.

Hopefully, Harden is good to go before game 3 on Saturday.
