James Harden OUT Of The All-Star Game, Sixers' Debut Pushed Back

Fans are going to have to wait just a little bit longer to see James Harden don a Philadelphia 76er jersey. He's now been ruled out until after All-Star Weekend, meaning he won't play in the midseason event either. 

Harden has missed some games recently for the Brooklyn Nets, before his trade to Philly, with a sore left hamstring. As reported by Kyle Neubeck of the Philly Voice, Harden will continue to get treatment along with on-court training while he recovers. The Sixers will provide an update on his playing status after the break, a week from now. 

Harden, however, was all smiles at his first day of practice with his new teammates. And observers think they know why...

Since the blockbuster Ben Simmons trade that brought The Beard to Philly, word has spread of his disdain for his former teammate Kyrie Irving's choice to be a part-time player. 

Let's all mark March 10th on our calendars—the Nets and Ben Simmons visit Harden's Sixers in Philadelphia.
