Rockets opening game against Thunder is postponed
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Rockets season opener against the Thunder is being postponed due to COVID contact tracing. The Rockets do not have the number of available players necessary to play, which is eight.
We'll continue to update as more information becomes available.
After the NBA declared James Harden "unavailable due to violation of health and safety protocols," it is still unclear to both Harden and the Rockets how long he'll be unavailable or whether he'll face league punishment, sources tell @ramonashelburne and me.
