James Harden is off of the injury report, and according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, he will make his Philadelphia 76ers debut tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8:00 pm EST.
Harden did not appear on the official injury report Friday morning after nursing a hamstring injury that kept him out of four games in Philly and his last four games in Brooklyn. After forcing his way out of Brooklyn, Harden will have one goal in mind tonight when lacing up his sneakers to play for his new team for the first time: a championship.
“(Winning a title is) the goal, man. That’s the goal. Like Daryl (Morey) said: The opportunity to win is now. Joel is playing the best he’s ever played. So my job is to come out there and help him and help the entire team win a championship this year and in years going forward.”
Philadelphia is now at full strength, and their newly acquired superstar guard is looking to guide them to their first NBA Championship since 1983 when Dr. J was in town.
