BROOKLYN — The Brooklyn Nets say James Harden has had a setback with his hamstring injury and will be sidelined “indefinitely.”

Nets coach Steve Nash said Harden’s rehabilitation goes “back to square one.”

Harden was acquired by Brooklyn in January in a trade with Houston. He is averaging 25.2 points 10.9 assists and eight rebounds per game.

He has not played since April 5 and was ruled out for a seventh straight game on Tuesday night in New Orleans.

Nash said it’s unclear whether Harden will return before or after the playoffs begin.
