Rockets' Harden leaves with right knee contusion


Posted Oct 25, 2013 9:31 PM

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Houston Rockets guard James Harden left Friday night's preseason game with a right knee contusion and was not expected to return.

Harden, the team's leading scorer in the preseason with a 20.8 average, connected on a 3-pointer from the right wing and went down to the court in front of the Rockets bench when he was fouled by Quincy Pondexter.

Harden eventually got up, made the ensuing free throw and went straight to the locker room at the next stoppage of play.
