James Harden (hamstring) upgraded to doubtful for Nets in Game 5

Brooklyn Nets guard/forward James Harden (hamstring) has been upgraded to doubtful for Game 5 against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Harden, who had previously been ruled out, is "determined to try and find a way to get cleared to play," according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Harden is expected to test his hamstring out during shoot-around and he will presumably be re-evaluated afterward. There would be some concerns about ineffectiveness, as well as aggravation of the injury, if Harden does wind up playing. Kyrie Irving remains out with an ankle injury he suffered in Game 4, so Kevin Durant should see a spike in usage even if Harden is active.

numberFire's models currently expect Harden to sit and project Durant for 58.0 FanDuel points with his $15,500 salary. Bruce Brown Jr. has an $11,000 salary and is projected for 29.3 FanDuel points. Mike James has a $9,500 salary and is projected for 24.8 FanDuel points.
