The Philadelphia 76ers are still waiting to see James Harden — but they might not have to wait much longer.

While Harden was not present for Philadelphia’s first practice at Moby Arena on the campus of Colorado State University Tuesday morning, he’s expected to arrive in Colorado as soon as later Tuesday to join the franchise for training camp, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It is not immediately clear how soon — or whether — Harden will participate in practice, sources told Wojnarowski.

Harden also didn’t attend media day Monday in Camden, New Jersey, where his teammates, Nurse and 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey all expressed hope and optimism that this situation could be resolved.

To that end, Harden on Friday was paid the 25% of his contract he was scheduled to receive by Sunday, sources said, after already having received the 25% payment he was scheduled to receive July 1.

And, while they wait for him to arrive, the 76ers will continue to operate on two timelines: one where Harden is back into the fold and one where he is not.

Nurse referenced having a Plan A and Plan B Monday. After conducting his first practice as Philadelphia’s head coach he said his experience taking over the Toronto Raptors at the start of the 2018-19 season — when he had to integrate Kawhi Leonard into an established team, a season that ended with Toronto winning a title — has served him well in adjusting to the 76ers.

Unlike the Ben Simmons situation two years ago, there appears to be no animus between Harden and his teammates, who continue to express optimism he’ll rejoin them.

The 76ers are scheduled to practice in Colorado until Friday, before flying to Boston to open the preseason Sunday at TD Garden against the Celtics (6 p.m. ET, ESPN).
