It looks like Houston Rocket guard Danuel House may miss the rest of the Western Conference semifinals for violating the NBA bubble with a woman.
And not just any woman. Apparently House brought a female COVID tester into his hotel room for some up-close-and-personal-testing.
House was a late scratch for Rockets’ Game 3 loss to the Lakers due to “personal reasons” and is listed as “out” for Thursday’s Game 4 on the official injury report. Sources say league hasn’t cleared him to play in Game 4 yet, but NBPA and NBA are discussing issue. https://t.co/VFY865aLlH

House is averaging 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds in the playoffs. The Rockets trail the Lakers two games to one. House maintains his innocence.
