James Harden, who missed his second straight game Wednesday with a bruised thumb, is listed as day-to-day with the Rockets off until Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
With three days in between games, the Rockets will have plenty of time to evaluate Harden prior to Saturday's contest. Barring any setbacks, fantasy owners should expect to have Harden back in their starting lineup against the Cavaliers.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
