Harden has been suspended one game for kicking LeBron James in the groin area, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

Tensions were high between the Rockets and Cavaliers for most of Sunday's showdown, and Harden delivered a kick to James' groin in the third quarter, which earned him a flagrant foul. Whether James embellished the kick is up for debate, but Harden, who was also dealing with a bruised left shoulder, will be held out Tuesday against Atlanta. Unless the shoulder injury continues to bother him, expect Harden to return to action Wednesday when the Rockets host the Grizzlies.

Harden is dealing with a bruised left shoulder, but he is probable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harden dealt with an ankle injury last week, and he seems to have moved past that minor ailment and on to a new one. He's unlikely to miss Tuesday's marquee matchup because of a bruised shoulder, though it is worth noting that the Rockets have a more important game Wednesday, facing the Grizzlies on the second night of a back-to-back.
