John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins will not be available for the match of the Houston Rockets against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.

Wall and Cousins will miss the game, due to the Health and Safety protocol of the NBA (contact tracing).

Eric Gordon and Mason Jones are also out for the same reason, while Ben McLemore and Kenyon Martin Jr. have tested positive for the coronavirus and will not play, too.

Because of this situation, the Rockets did not have the league-required eight players available on Wednesday and their season opener vs the Thunder was suspended.
