The Sports Network

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Houston Rockets guard James Harden will miss his second straight game when the team wraps up a home-and-home against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.

The Rockets' leading scorer is dealing with a bruised left thumb sustained Saturday night in a loss to the Grizzlies. He had just 16 points in that one and 10 the game before -- another setback against Memphis.

The 24-year-old out of Arizona State is averaging 23.7 points and 5.5 assists per game this season, though he is hitting just 32.1 percent of his 3- point attempts.
