Harden was listed in the starting lineup submitted by coach Kevin McHale on Wednesday night. The Rockets face a 3-1 deficit in the first-round series against Oklahoma City, after winning Game 4 to avoid elimination.
Point guard Jeremy Lin was out for the second straight game because of a bruised chest muscle. The Rockets listed Lin as questionable, but he was not in uniform and instead wearing a suit on the bench.
