Top reserve James Harden was set to return to the Oklahoma City Thunder's lineup Wednesday night after missing the last six games with a strained right hamstring.
Coach Scott Brooks says there will be no restrictions on Harden's minutes as the Thunder face the Houston Rockets.
Harden is Oklahoma City's top scoring bench player with 9.9 points per game, shooting 38 percent from 3-point range. He's also among the top 10 rookies in scoring, assists and steals.
The Thunder have gone 3-3 without him.
