We’re beginning to learn the details as to why Rockets’ Danuel House has been mysteriously held out from games.

For the past few days, House has been unable to play due to non-COVID related personal issues.

On Thursday night, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that House was being investigated by the league for breaking the NBA bubble protocols.

Yahoo Sports reporter Chris B. Haynes is now reporting that House is under investigation because he allowed a female COVID-19 testing official into his room which apparently violates the bubble protocol.
