HOUSTON (AP) -- James Harden and Chandler Parsons, Houston's top two scorers, will sit out Monday night against Orlando.
Harden, the NBA's fifth-leading scorer (26 points per game), will miss his second straight game with a sore right foot, an injury stemming from a sprained right ankle he sustained in a Feb. 12 game against Golden State. Harden said after getting treatment on his foot Monday morning that the injury was "getting better every single day."
Parsons is out with food poisoning. Houston coach Kevin McHale joked that Parsons, who played at Florida, was actually suffering from "Wolverine poisoning" after watching Michigan beat the Gators in the NCAA tournament on Sunday.
Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson was sitting out for the second straight game with a sprained right ankle.
