Rockets’ House Under Investigation from Breaking Bubble Guidelines
The Houston Rockets simply cannot afford this right now.
Down 2-1 in a best of seven series against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, they may be without a key bench piece indefinitely.
Danuel House is under investigation for “allegedly allowing a female COVID-19 testing official” into his room, and his status for the rest of the conference semifinals is in question, per @ChrisBHaynes pic.twitter.com/f2dlehi9qP

According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports, swingman Danuel House is under investigation for allegedly bringing a female COVID-19 testing officially into his hotel room. As per NBA bubble guidelines, players are not permitted to bring hotel employees or testing officials into their hotel rooms. It should be noted that House, who was listed out of Game 3 for “personal reasons”, vehemently rejects these allegations.
House will not be available for Game 4 tonight and may miss the remainder of the series.
House has averaged 11.4 points per game through these playoffs.
