Steve Nash knows his Brooklyn Nets are in a difficult situation heading to their do-or-die Game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks, and he didn’t raise much confidence with an update on James Harden‘s injury.

Harden sustained a hamstring injury in Game 1 of the series, but he forced his way back in Game 5 after Kyrie Irving fell victim to an ankle sprain in the previous contest. However, the All-Star guard has been struggling since coming back, even going 1-of-10 in his return.

The Beard had a better outing in Game 6 with 16 points, five rebounds, seven assists and four steals, but it is clear he is quite not there yet when it comes to being healthy and impactful.

Now, ahead of Saturday’s critical game, Nash admitted Harden isn’t 100 percent yet.

“James (Harden) is not at 100%. He’s got to protect himself—He’s not going to be able to push the ball in transition,” Nash said of the Nets’ scoring guard, per Ajayi Browne of USA Today.

This latest update from Steve Nash is certainly not encouraging, especially since the Nets really need James Harden to be at his best in order to repel the Bucks.

While Kevin Durant proved in Game 5 he can take over games and carry the team to victory with his 49/17/10 stat line, Game 6 showed Brooklyn they also need the other players to truly step up in order to have any chance of winning.

Harden seemed to be slowly finding his touch once again, but if what Nash said is any indication, fans should not have high expectations on him.
