The NBA Is Investigating Rockets’ Danuel House Jr. Amid Rumors That He Allegedly Tried To Sneak In An IG Model Into Bubble

Houston Rockets’ Danuel House Jr. could be out for the remainder of the Western Conference semifinals against the Lakers for violating bubble protocols and there are some rumblings that it’s because he tried to sneak in an Instagram model into the bubble.

For the past few days, House has been mysteriously unable to play for non-covid related “personal reasons.”

On Tuesday night twitter user Cuffsthelegend, who is friends with several NBA players including LeBron James, implied that House was getting suspended for attempting to bring in an Instagram model who was not his wife or girlfriend into the bubble which is a clear violation of the bubble rules.

On Wednesday night, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that House was being investigated by the NBA for potentially violating “bubble protocol” but the league wouldn’t specify the reason why he was being probed.
