DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall will have to wait in order to make their season debut with the Houston Rockets.

Cousins and Wall are in the NBA Health and Safety protocol (contact tracing) and have received a 7-day quarantine.

The two superstars were in contact with Ben McLemore and Kenyon Martin Jr, who tested positive for the coronavirus.

Cousins and Wall are expected to miss the games against the Portland Trail Blazers (Saturday) and the Denver Nuggets (Monday) and will be available for the game against the Sacramento Kings next Thursday.

On the other hand, James Harden will make his season debut with the Rockets against the Blazers.
