Rules are rules, and no matter what the circumstances are, you can’t break them during a pandemic.
Especially not in the NBA bubble.
Houston Rockets reserve Danuel House Jr. is currently under investigation for breaking protocol, as he allegedly allowed a female COVID-19 testing official into his hotel room.
“House maintains his innocence, sources said, and a decision from the league is expected before Game 4 on Thursday.
Veteran center Tyson Chandler and House were ruled out of Game 3 on Tuesday for “personal reasons.”
Opposing teams are closely monitoring how the league handles this situation.
The Rockets are the lone remaining team staying at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort, which is where the team undergoes its daily testing.
The NBA is believed to be considering whether House could be subjected to a 10-day quarantine period for an alleged violation, sources said.
Team and league officials have declined to specify the nature of House’s violation. House has averaged 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game during the playoffs.
