Harden a late scratch vs. Warriors with right hand injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Brooklyn Nets will be without two of their big three against the Warriors on Saturday night at Chase Center as James Harden was ruled out roughly 40 minutes before tip-off due to a right-hand strain, the team announced.

Harden missed the Nets’ last game Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets with left hamstring tightness.

Kevin Durant also won’t play Saturday as he recovers from a left MCL sprain.

With Harden and Durant out, that leaves Kyrie Irving as the lone superstar available for the Nets.

The shorthanded Nets (29-19) roll into the Bay Area having lost three straight games. They currently sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, but they only are two and a half games behind the first-place Miami Heat.

The Warriors will be without forward Nemanja Bjelica, who is dealing with back spasms. Coach Steve Kerr said they are taking it day-to-day with the 33-year-old.

Andre Iguodala also will miss his fifth straight game as he manages a hip injury. Kerr said the veteran forward won’t travel with the team to Houston and San Antonio for the upcoming road trip.
