Harden helping Rockets move on without Capela

Before Houston Rockets guard James Harden reached another level of extraordinary achievement on Monday, the mood around Toyota Center was less jovial following the somber news on Clint Capela.

Capela will be on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the visiting Brooklyn Nets after the Rockets discovered Capela could be sidelined up to six weeks with a right thumb injury sustained in a loss to the Orlando Magic on Sunday.

Capela has performed at an All-Star level this season, with averages of 17.6 points and 12.6 rebounds while serving as an interior balance to the magic Harden delivers from the perimeter on a game-by-game basis.
