Harden has been sidelined since April 5, after initially returning from a hamstring injury against the New York Knicks, which was cut short after playing just four minutes.
"We're back to square one," coach Steve Nash said before Tuesday's game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans. "He will be back when he's back. It might be the playoffs. It might be sooner."
The 31-year-old has been enjoying a stellar season in Brooklyn, averaging 25.4 points, 11.0 assists and 8.7 rebounds over 34 games, with the Nets (38-19) currently second in the Eastern Conference.
