The NBA booted Danuel House Jr. out of the NBA bubble in Orlando. Also, he will no longer play in the season after he violated the basketball league’s safety and health protocols.
According to the NBA, they found out that House had an unauthorized visitor in the hotel room for several hours Tuesday. According to the league statement, House is leaving the campus. Also, he would not be part of the Rockets’ playoffs campaign.
House previously denied any wrongdoings. According to the investigation, no other staff or players had contact with the visitor. Also, only House was involved in the incident. House averaged 11 points and six rebounds during the playoffs.
NBA Booted Danuel House Jr.
House played nine games in the playoffs for the Rockets this year. However, he didn’t play during Games 3 and 4 against the Lakers. According to basketball betting Korea reports, coach Mike D’Antoni described House as one of the underrated two-way players in the NBA.
The Rockets lost the last three games against Los Angeles Lakers. Also, they are now 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. The next game will be on Saturday, based on online gambling South Korea sources.
However, the Rockets are missing another player during the fourth quarter of Game 4. James Harden might be a superstar, but was a no-show in the crucial moment of the game, according to a sports forum.
Harden had no field goal attempts in the fourth quarter. He proved that he is not a playoff hero. Also, analysts pointed out that Harden shot less than 25 percent from the three-point line in the fourth quarter and overtimes during the playoffs.
Also, the last game proved that Harden couldn’t carry a team in the playoffs. The team is just one MVP away from winning the NBA title.
