James Harden has spent an awful amount of time out injured in the last couple of years. After an injury-riddled short stint with the Brooklyn Nets, Harden began his first season with his new franchise last month. However, after a strong start averaging 22 points per game, Harden was sidelined with a right foot tendon strain. However, it has been revealed that he will be back soon.

Speaking to Philadelphia Sports last week, the Sixers star revealed he is well on track to return from the injury that has kept him out since early November. Harden said: “I feel good.” And revealed that he is on pace to return, as he described: “On pace. Started slowly, ramping it up a little… We’ve got a plan, a script that we’re trying to stick to. Overall, I feel good.”

“(The pain is) going down,” the Sixers’ superstar forward added. “I started off with a boot, but the boot kind of made my ankle and my foot stiff. So I took the boot off after maybe about four or five days. I wasn’t supposed to, but it wasn’t doing good. But yeah, just shooting, trying to get my bounce back with my shot and things like that… and just keep building from there.”

It turns out that Harden’s recovery process was a successful one as the latest update on his return has said that he will be back sooner than ever.
