ESPN - Brooklyn Nets star guard James Harden will officially be out for Game 2 against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday with what the team is calling "right hamstring tightness." The expectation is reportedly for the Nets to see how his hamstring responds over the next several days. "He has high hopes and he wants to be back ASAP," Nets coach Steve Nash said this past Sunday. "Now, I think we want to protect James, too. We want to make sure he's right... this is playoff time. This is time to take some risks, but it has to be right to take those risks -- we're not going to take any old risk. So, we hope he's back. He believes he can be back. But, we've got to see what happens and only can time can tell how he responds."
