Harden’s status for Tuesday’s game at NBA-leading Phoenix is up in the air. Nash had no clarity after Saturday’s loss. “I do not,” Nash said. “We’ll have to see how it settles, but we’re hopeful.”

Tonight’s story from San Francisco, the injuries and losses continue for the Nets as James Harden and LaMarcus Aldridge both have ailments. On the court, Kyrie Irving’s performance wasn’t enough: theathletic.com/3100865/2022/0…1:24 AM

Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
Before the Warriors hosted the Nets in prime time on Saturday, James Harden was ruled out due to a right hand strain. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/29/inj…1:00 AM

“We can’t be fragile….there’s no time to be fragile.”
Says Kyrie Irving when asked about the current four game losing streak. Says it’s not the first time he, James Harden or Steve Nash have lost a few in a row before. – 11:53 PM

Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
Incredibly frustrating to go 5-1 in NBA tonight with lone loser a 5% play on GSW/Nets total. News of no Harden came awfully late and to hear hand has been an issue he’s been dealing with but hadn’t reported because he thought it was no big deal is lame. Goes down as an L. Furious – 11:30 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Steve Nash said he’s “hopeful” that James Harden will play against Phoenix on Tuesday – 11:15 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Steve Nash has no update yet on LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) or James Harden (hand) for Tuesday at the #Suns. – 11:14 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash is “hopeful” James Harden will play in Phoenix. Isn’t sure on LaMarcus Aldridge. Said he doesn’t think James Johnson’s ankle is bad given he was able to finish the game. – 11:14 PM

Injured Nets guard James Harden was moving his injured right hand in a rotating fashion left to right as if he was trying to stretch it out as he walked into the locker room post game. – 11:13 PM

James Harden has been called for offensive fouls on plays like this one this season. But here Curry draws 2 big free throws.

Andrew Wiggins’ head was at the top of the box for that putback dunk and it punctuated a quarter where he’s got 14 points and 5 rebounds.
The Warriors are up 31-20, as expected, against a Nets team without Kevin Durant, James Harden and Joe Harris. – 9:08 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Rough first quarter for Nets without Harden. Kyrie is just 1-for-3 — and got a lot of boos after being introduced.
Patty Mills is 0-for-5. Nets just 6/20 from the field and 1-for-7 from beyond the arc. Not a lot of answers offensively. – 9:06 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
James Johnson is your backup point guard with Irving off the floor and Harden out. – 9:01 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Greetings from Chase Center. Last time I was in SF, I learned the country was shutting down upon landing. Nets-Warriors about to tip. No James Harden. What a week for him. Will see if Kyrie Irving can lead BK to a win without him. Updates to come. – 8:34 PM

More on this storyline

James Harden was a late scratch from Saturday’s loss at Golden State, sidelined by a right hand strain that hadn’t appeared on the injury report an hour earlier. “James’ hand has been bothering him for a few days at least,” coach Steve Nash said before the Nets’ 110-106 loss to the Warriors. “He thought it was nothing and then it really flared up this morning when he woke up. Obviously irritated but what he was feeling [Friday] and [Saturday] morning he woke up with some irritation so he had a scan.” -via New York Post / January 30, 2022

That scan was an MRI exam, which ruled out anything catastrophic but did reveal the strain. “[It was] clean of the bad stuff, but a strain for sure. There’s stuff on the MRI, so he’s feeling something and feeling the strain, and like I said it’s been bothering [him],” Nash said. “But he was like, ‘It’s nothing.’ And now it’s a little more than nothing. He woke up with a marked difference in the hand.” -via New York Post / January 30, 2022
