      Harden Expected To Play In Game 5

      Oklahoma City reserve{}James Harden{}has a bruised left hand but is expected to play Thursday in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

      Harden was hurt during the Thunder's 104-98 loss to the{}Miami Heat{}on Tuesday. A Thunder spokesman says Harden took part in some of Wednesday's practice, but also iced his hand and sat out a portion.

      The Sixth Man of the Year's struggles have helped the Heat build a 3-1 lead. Harden has shot 2 of 10 in both games in Miami, falling to 13 for 37 (35 percent) in the series. He is averaging 10.8 points, six points below his regular-season average.
