James Harden cleared to play
Harden did not play in the game Friday night against Sacramento, a 26-point romp by the Western Conference leaders in Oklahoma City. Harden tested his knee out on Saturday about an hour before tipoff and was deemed good to go.
Harden has missed only two games all season. He is third on the Thunder in scoring with 16.7 points per game. That's also the highest total of any reserve in the league this season.
For the Timberwolves, Kevin Love did not come to the arena for the second straight game because of a concussion. There is still no timetable for his return.
