Houston Rockets wing Danuel House will not rejoin his team in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida following results of an official investigation into quarantine policy violations. The inquiry found that House hosted a non-approved visitor in his hotel room in violation of safety protocol. Shams Charania of The Athletic tweeted the news.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports followed up with the official NBA statement.

It reads:

The NBA has concluded its investigation of a recent violation of campus health and safety protocols. The findings are that: (i) Houston Rockets forward Danuel House had a guest in his hotel room over multiple hours on September 8 who was not authorized to be on campus and (ii) no evidence was found that other players or staff had contact with the guest or were involved in this incident.

The Rockets trail the Los Angeles Lakers 1-3 in their best-of-seven, second-round series. House played in the first two games, scoring 0 and 13 points respectively. He averaged 10.5 points and 4.2 rebounds in 30.4 minutes per game for the Rockets this season.
