Brooklyn Nets superstar James Harden is 100 percent healthy and ready for the playoffs.
After missing the Nets’ final regular season game against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to injury management, Harden played down concerns on his health heading to the postseason. In fact, he erased all fears that he is not at his best yet with two, simple words: “I’m back.”

Now that’s a perfect mic-drop moment right there!
It is also just the update Nets fans would want to hear after a season riddled with injuries. Brooklyn’s “Big 3” barely played games together due to various injuries and health issues.
For his part, James Harden missed 18 straight games from April to May due to a right hamstring injury. In total, he only played 36 games for Brooklyn and eight for the Houston Rockets before he was traded earlier in the campaign.
There have been questions if the Nets can stay healthy in the postseason given their recent struggles with it. When they are 100 percent, Steve Nash’s team is undoubtedly the most dangerous squad; however, they are yet to show that potency on the court.
Hopefully Brooklyn and their Big 3 of Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will be able to avoid any significant injuries in the playoffs and show everyone the deadly and entertaining attack everyone is craving for.
