Warriors vs. Rockets gamethread: Andrew Bogut out, James Harden will play

The Golden State Warriors face a banged up Houston Rockets team tonight at 7:30 p.m. PST.

Kevin Nesgoda did a rundown of the Houston Rocket's injury list over at The Dream Shake and it should leave Golden State Warriors fans feeling grateful that they will only miss out on seeing David Lee and Andrew Bogut tonight (as of the time this is being written).

Long story short, James Harden will be playing for the Rockets tonight at Oracle Arena while Dwight Howard won't be. But if you've ever dealt with the slightest back problem in your life (in which playing 82 basketball games a season is not expected), you might figure that Harden will be somewhat limited or possibly end up sitting.

In any event, the Warriors have a good shot at winning #14 against another weakened opponent but we still have to enjoy this: the fun thing about witnessing streaks that have never happened before is precisely the fact that it simply hasn't happened before.
