NBA Postpones Rockets-Thunder Due To COVID-19 Testing 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 23, 2020 10:56 pm

The NBA has postponed Wednesday's game between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder as the Rockets don't have the mandatory eight players to begin a game.


The Rockets had three positive/inconclusive COVID-19 tests while four other players are quarantined due to contact tracing. James Harden is also out due to a health and safety protocols violation. Another player is out due to injury.

Why are the Thunder being punished for Houston's failure to follow Covid protocols? This should definitely be a forfeit

That was my first thought, but it's hard to punish a team or a franchise for the stupidity of individuals.
