Expectations for Houston Rockets  guard James Harden’s Grade 2 hamstring strain is 2-4 weeks. Insinuates at least partial muscle tear. Concerning. Non-surgical.

Partial tearing of the muscle fibers in the hamstring. Three possible locations, proximally (near the buttocks), mid-substance and distally (near the knee). The most common location for injury is proximally. There are 3 hamstring muscles, the semimembranosus, semitendinosus & biceps femoris. Although we do not know which muscle Harden Injured, the Biceps femoris (which is further divided into the long head & short head) is the most commonly injured. Harden likely underwent an MRI which showed the Grade 2 tear, but not a complete tear, which would be a Grade 3, which require surgery. RTP is realistically 2-6 weeks. He will likely get re-evaluated in 2 weeks.
