Update: Houston Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni says that James Harden left tonight's game with tightness in his hamstring. It's unclear what his status is moving forward.

Earlier: James Harden left the fourth quarter of tonight's Houston Rockets-Utah Jazz game with an apparent injury. Here is the latest on the status of the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player. Harden, who's been off to another stellar start to the 2018-19 NBA season, left the floor in the fourth quarter of tonight's game against the Jazz. The Rockets' star guard could be seen talking with trainers during a break in the action for a couple of minutes. He eventually left the floor and headed into the locker room.

Harden left the floor with a little more than 5 minutes to play in the fourth quarter. He had 29 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds so far in the game, shooting 10 of 19 from the floor and 3 for 4 from behind the 3-point line.

The specific reason for Harden's departure is unclear at this point. The Rockets are currently losing to the Jazz by double digits. Houston would fall to 1-3 on the season with a loss tonight.

Stay tuned for more updates on Harden and his apparent injury.
