FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

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
