With Russell Westbrook posting on Twitter that he tested positive for COVID-19, it was speculated that Harden may have also contracted the virus. After all, the two Rockets stars didn’t join the team when they traveled to Orlando last week.
But it seems like Rockets fans shouldn’t need to worry anymore as the team’s official Twitter account captured Harden recently arriving at the Orlando bubble.

Harden is currently leading the league in scoring with 34.4 points per game, along with his 6.4 boards and 7.4 dimes. With the Rockets activating its “micro-ball” line-up of having a 6-foot-5 P.J. Tucker in the center position, it’s vital that they have a fully-healthy Harden to steer them to greater heights.
As for Westbrook, the former MVP himself assured everyone that he is “feeling well” and that he will be going to Orlando once he’s cleared from the virus.
