As the Philadelphia 76ers gear up for their first preseason game against the Boston Celtics, all eyes are on superstar James Harden.

The former MVP has been a focal point of trade discussions this offseason, particularly with the Los Angeles Clippers.

When asked about Harden’s potential debut against the Celtics, new 76ers head coach Nick Nurse was candid but uncertain.

“I do not know,” Nurse said, per Tim Bontemps of ESPN. He explained that the team is currently working on ramping up several players for the preseason match.

Nurse emphasized that the upcoming practice in Boston would be rigorous and physical, as it’s still training camp.

He indicated that the coaching staff would assess the players’ condition after the practice session to determine their availability for Sunday’s game.
