James Harden and Michael Carter-Williams were both out for the Houston Rockets' visit to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.

Harden was sidelined with a sore foot, the team tweeted.

Harden has averaged 24.9 points, 5.1 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game this season for a Rockets team that was playing the first game of a road back-to-back.

Carter-Williams, who was named the league's player of the week the first week of the season, is day to day with a left foot arch bruise, according to the Sixers' official Twitter feed.

The Sixers rookie has averaged 17.4 points, 7.6 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game for a Philadelphia team that has gotten off to a surprising 4-4 start.
