Former Kia NBA MVP James Harden won’t make his Philadelphia 76ers debut until after the All-Star break as he continues to rehabilitate his left hamstring injury, which sidelined him for his last six games with the Brooklyn Nets prior to last week’s blockbuster trade to Philadelphia.
The Sixers will be without Harden for two key games this week — home against the streaking Celtics on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, TNT) and on the road against the defending-champion Bucks on Thursday (8:30 p.m. ET, TNT).
Harden was selected by Team LeBron for the 2022 All-Star Game. His replacement will be selected by Commissioner Adam Silver this week.
The Sixers (34-22) are currently the 5th seed in the East standings.
