Shams: James Harden (hamstring) plans to play Tuesday for Nets

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

What It Means:

Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium is reporting that Harden "plans to play" as long as he doesn't suffer a setback during warmups. Harden has missed the past 10 days with a tight hamstring and he will likely still be limited in some capacity. Bruce Brown has been starting in place of Harden, and he could remain in the lineup with Kyrie Irving (ankle) now out.

Harden scored 56.2 FanDuel points FanDuel points versus the Bucks during the regular season. He has a $14,500 salary on Tuesday's one-game slate.
