Not only will the Rockets likely be without James Harden in their first game of the season because of his alleged appearance at a club while not wearing a mask, now Shams Charania is reporting that John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins aren't expected to play due to contact tracing.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the contact tracing is connected to rookie KJ Martin. The Rockets will need to lean on Eric Gordon, Christian Wood, and PJ Tucker when they face the Thunder on Wednesday night. Houston has yet to play a game and the drama is already building.
