Philadelphia Sixers guard James Harden could soon return to the basketball court.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Harden could be back in the Sixers roster as early as Monday.
Harden suffered a tendon sprain in his right foot and last played Nov. 2 and was expected to last about a month, which is Dec. 5 against Houston in this timeline.
This season, Harden is averaging 22.0 points, 10.0 assists and 7.0 rebounds per outing.
Despite losing their general to the ground, the Sixers played well, despite losing Tyrese Maxey on Nov. 18 in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Playmaker duties fell largely on the shoulders of Shake Milton and De’Anthony Melton with Harden absent.
In his last six games played, Milton has scored 20 or more points on five occasions, bringing his season average to 11.4 points in 22.8 minutes per game. Melton is averaging 11 points per game in 28 minutes.
The Sixers are back in action tonight and Friday in Memphis before playing Houston on Monday night at 8 p.m.
