James Harden dribbles vs Bucks, navy jersey

James Harden is heading to the NBA All-Star Game for the 10th time in his career.

While the starters were announced last week, the Eastern and Western conference reserves were announced Thursday evening, with Harden among the East’s seven reserves. Here’s the full list:

Harden joins teammate Kevin Durant among this year’s All-Star class, as Durant will once again be a team captain as the East’s leading vote-getter. Durant reportedly won’t be healthy enough to play, however, as he recovers from a left MCL strain.

The 32-year-old Harden has been dealing with a right hand strain of late, causing him to miss two games and playing a role in his 2-for-11 shooting performance in Wednesday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings. Still, Harden has put up solid numbers this year (22.5 points, 10.2 assists, 8.0 rebounds), even if his point total is slightly down from his career average (25.0).

With Harden a bit banged up and Durant still sidelined as well, the Nets are in the midst of a brutal six-game losing streak, dropping to sixth in the East at 29-22. While questions about Harden’s long-term future with the Nets have come up, the team’s hope is that a healthy Big Three of Durant, Harden, and Kyrie Irving will help Brooklyn achieve their goal of an NBA title.
