On June 7, Brooklyn will play their second game in the 2021 second-round playoff series against Milwaukee without star defender James Harden.
The club from New York today announced that the 31-year-old basketball player will miss the meeting due to an injury to his right hamstring. Brooklyn has not yet provided more detailed information on the timing of Harden’s recovery.
Recall that June 5 Harden left the site in the first minute of the 1st playoff match against Milwaukee due to injury. The Nets later announced that Harden was out of action for the rest of the meeting.
Harden played only 43 seconds, but the Nets won 115-107 and took a 1-0 lead in the second round of the playoffs.
In 6 playoff games in 2021, James had the following statistics – 23.2 points, 8.8 assists (with 2.3 losses), 6.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 30.5 minutes on the court, when games 55.6% and three-pointers 47.5%.
James Harden was injured, but that did not stop Brooklyn from stepping over Milwaukee in the first leg of the East semi-final
