James Harden is listed as probable to play in the Houston Rockets' game tonight against the Golden State Warriors after aggravating his left wrist on Sunday, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

In his report, Feigen highlighted Harden's durability over the last three years.

"It's something he's probably going to have to put up with the rest of the year. It's a tendon. He jammed it.

"Hopefully, he's good. If he needs to rest, he'll rest and make sure he gets well, but knowing him, he wants to play."

Harden has not missed a game with an injury in the past three seasons.

So how much should that durability figure into his candidacy for MVP? Harden definitely thinks it matters since, in his words that were reported by ESPN's Calvin Watkins, "'re not leaving your teammates out there to dry."

What do you think? Is Harden the clear MVP for the 2016-17 NBA season? And does his durability really matter?

Let us know in the comments while you're waiting for tonight's game to begin.
