Injuries might be the only thing that stops the Brooklyn Nets from winning the 2021 NBA Finals. The team’s three stars haven’t all played together in quite some time, but that should change in time for the postseason.

James Harden said Thursday he’s “very confident” that he’ll be ready to return to the court before the postseason starts. The guard told reporters that he feels really good while rehabbing from a hamstring injury.

Brooklyn only has six games left on its regular-season schedule. The team is set to play its final game May 16 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Nets have already clinched a playoff berth and will enter the postseason with a top-three seed.

The Nets have been cautious with their best players, hoping they will all be completely healthy for the playoffs. Kevin Durant dealt with a hamstring injury and has missed more than half of the team’s games. Kyrie Irving has been on the court more than Durant or Harden despite missing 17 games himself.

Since Harden was traded to the Nets in January, the three All-Stars have only shared the court as teammates in seven games. The last occurrence was in a 134-117 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Feb. 13 when Harden, Durant and Irving combined for 62 points, 18 rebounds and 26 assists.

The Nets managed to keep winning without Durant as Harden played at an MVP level. The team has struggled the most in Harden’s absence. Brooklyn is 27-7 with Harden in the lineup and 9-10 when the guard has been sidelined.

Harden is averaging 25.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 11.0 assists per game with the Nets.
