Harden out, Lin back for Rockets against Mavs
Houston guard James Harden is out for a second straight game for
the Rockets against the Mavericks, but Jeremy Lin will play after
missing time with back spasms.
Harden, who leads the team in scoring with 23.9 points a game,
will sit out Monday night with a sprained left ankle. Lin has
missed four games recently with back spasms.
The Rockets are also without guard Patrick Beverley, who has a
right hand injury and center Omer Asik, who has missed the last
nine games with a right thigh bruise.
