James Harden is being listed as a game-time decision for tonight's Thunder-Rockets game inside Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The Rockets guard is said to be suffering from a cold, but Houston coach Kevin McHale expects his star will play.

"James will be fine tonight," McHale told reporters Wednesday morning, according to the Houston Chronicle. "At 8:30, I'm sure he'll be ready to go, like everybody else, excited to play."

Rockets starting point guard Jeremy Lin, meanwhile, is expected to miss his second straight game with a bruised chest muscle.

"They've taken away my freedom to choose whether I play or not," Lin was quoted as saying by the Houston Chronicle. "A lot of it will be up to the trainers. If it was me I was would have played Game 4 and Game 5. We want to make sure it doesn't get worse. They're kind of judges at what point it can be fully functional without having any setbacks."
