James Harden will remain out of action indefinitely, as he is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Harden was expected to return to action soon, but suffered a setback during his rehabilitation for his strained right hamstring.

“We’re back to square one,” coach Steve Nash said before Tuesday’s game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, via Malika Andrews of ESPN. “He will be back when he’s back. It might be the playoffs. It might be sooner.”

The nine-time All-Star averaged 25.4 points, 11.0 assists and 8.7 rebounds over his first 34 games with Brooklyn. Harden has missed eight games in April.
