Grade 1 is the worst. We might be looking at 5 weeks

WebMD disagrees with you, grade 1 is the mildest type of strain.

If it's 5 weeks to get James fully fit, so be it. But this is far from the worst diagnosis.

Like the poster HardenGoat said, "he missed 2 weeks in 2017 for a grade 2 and in 2018 he had a grade 1 missing a week." Considering he's also older now, I'd say we're looking at 2-3 weeks.

There is 0 reason to bring him back other then 2-3 tune up games prior to the playoffs. Kyrie/KD will carry us. rest up james.

Given that the team stated that he'll be re-evaluated in 10 days, best case scenario is probably 2.5 weeks. If the 10 day re-evaluation is clear, they'll make him slowly work on increasing load before clearing him for a game. The Celtics game is probably the best case scenario. If not that game, it's probably the road trip that starts in Milwaukee.

Just saw this

So unbelievably frustrating. Who knows when we get Harden back now?

We will run Kyrie into the ground by playing him so much. And who knows when KD comes back.

This team is not good enough with only Kyrie.

Finally something approaching good news.

KD had his scan and it was the least severe of the thigh contusions the doctor explained. If you watched that video he explained the most severe, in-between, and the least severe, and the amount of rehab time normally associated with all three. Turns out KD's was the least severe and he figures to only miss the next game or two.

They just said he was out indefinitely.

Nash said he could be out till the playoffs.

Hamstring injuries are no joke. I will be surprised if we see Harden more than few games before the playoffs.

Wouldn't shock me if he wasn't ready until the 2nd round.

This just so bad for our chemistry. We have not played a single games with the Big 3 and Claxton this year.

yea this does suck and it happened at one of the worst times. Kyrie and KD should at least be able to carry us to the 2nd round. I just hope they stay healthy too

Nash didn't completely rule it out. He said, and I'm paraphrasing him here, that Harden may not make it back until the playoffs or perhaps a few games prior. It still sucks, but at least he left the door open a crack for Harden's return being slightly earlier than the playoffs, which would be awesome because he's such a great player with so much veteran savvy that it would only take him a few games to get back into a rhythm.

Anytime there is a setback with a hamstring i always assume a minimum 4-6 weeks before return. I see now way he is back before the playoffs. that would be coming back less then 4 weeks. my guess is he would miss at least the first round, maybe even into the second round.

This setback is terrible news. We need harden bad if we want to win a title.

I think despite the short time together we have the league best chemistry. its elite. these guys have known eachother forever, have insane BBIQ and have played together a ton in the olympics, pro-ams, offseason, etc. We saw Kyrie/Harden look like they played together for 20 years. big 3 in the 7 games was the best offense all time. role guys getting time now, they all stay in their role.

i think chemistry is our #1 strength along with shooting

Whenever his return date is, he better be 120% healed up before playing. Can't afford any setback during the playoffs.

Return to Brooklyn Nets
