HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden doesn’t want to be a Houston Rocket. The Rockets have told him they didn’t want him at practice after his inflammatory comments about the team a night before.

Coach Stephen Silas says the team felt it was the best decision given the situation. Harden says he doesn’t think the Rockets can be “fixed.” His status for an upcoming road trip is up in the air in the wake of his remarks.
