The Rockets don't think James Harden will have too much of a problem with his eye in Game 3.

Harden suffered a contusion and cut in his eyelid in Game 2 when Warriors forward Draymond Green inadvertently struck him in the face when going for a rebound.

The reigning MVP went straight to the eye doctor when the Rockets got back to Houston and, according to ESPN, the team is optimistic he won't have problems with his vision in Game 3.

Harden missed nearly a quarter in Game 2 after suffering the injury but the Rockets were able to hold serve as they cut the Warriors' lead from nine to five by the time the guard came back.

The 29-year-old scored 29 points on 9 of 19 shooing in Game 2 and is averaging 32 points in the first two outings of the series.

The Rockets trail Golden State 2-0, though, as they head back to take on the Warriors on their home court.

Game 3 is scheduled to tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
