Updated: Houston guard James Harden was a game-time decision for the Monday night game at Utah with an upper-respiratory infection, reported the team's official site. Harden got the start for the Rockets but could not come out of the locker room after halftime as he was overcome with the illness. "We shut him down, gave him some medicine and tried to get him ready for Wednesday," coach Kelvin Sampson said of Harden. The guard went 1 of 6 from the field with three assists and played 17 minutes. He should be considered day to day.
