ANALYSIS: According to MacMahon, "If the video circulating on social media is verified to be recent, it is a violation of league's COVID protocols, which would put Harden's availability for tonight's opener in jeopardy." Harden has already been the focal point of recent NBA rumors surrounding his desire to remain in Houston. Now, with COVID-19 cases rising around the country, the league and its players cannot afford to be acting carelessly with regards to safety. It remains to be seen if the alleged video is recent.
