The Houston Rockets’ contact tracing is linked to rookie KJ Martin’s COVID-19 test results, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Martin is now listed on the NBA injury report as “not with the team – self-isolating.”
There was a group of players including Martin, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins who were away from the facility at an apartment getting haircuts, which has led to the contact tracing on Wall and Cousins, notes Wojnarowski.
Wall and Cousins have both tested negative.
Rockets rookie forward Jae’Sean Tate is also among the group of players sent home due to contact tracing.
Ahead of tonight’s scheduled game between the Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Thunder have not had any communication from the league about what is happening, or the status of tonight’s game, notes ESPN’s Tim Bontemps.
