James Harden 'does not think Achilles injury will completely going away'


James Harden is dealing with an Achilles injury that he does not believe is "completely going away."

"Just trying to do the proper thing and continue to maintain it, finish these last six games off and be ready to take that week of preparation," Harden said via Derek Bodner on Twitter when asked about his Achilles injury following the Sixers' win over the Mavericks on Wednesday night. "I mean, I don't think it's gonna completely go away, but, you know, I'm out there."

"I don't know where it came from," He continued. "It's been bothering me for some months, I would say. I just wanted to continue to play on it. There was one point in the last game I played it was just really unbearable. Six games left to finish the season off, finish off strong and we get another week to prepare. I felt like tonight was the game to come back."

The 33-year-old guard is having a speculator 2022-23 regular season, but we all know judgement day for Harden always comes in the postseason, a place where he has struggled throughout his career.

Harden returned to the court on Wednesday after missing four straight games. Harden had 15 points (4-14 FG) and 12 assists in the 116-108 win.
