BROOKLYN — James Harden won’t play against Charlotte after leaving Brooklyn’s game a night earlier with right hamstring tightness.

He joins fellow All-Star Kevin Durant, who has missed a month and a half with his own hamstring injury, on the injured list for the Eastern Conference leaders.

Harden sat out the fourth quarter of the Nets’ 120-108 victory over Houston on Wednesday. He finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

Coach Steve Nash said after the game he didn’t believe Harden’s injury would be a long-term concern.
