One of the notable matches on the morning of December 24 between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder was postponed when the Rockets did not have enough 8 players to participate.
The showdown between the Rockets and Thunder on the morning of December 24 was postponed because the Rockets team did not have enough 8 players to participate in the competition. Accordingly, 3 Houston players had positive results for COVID-19, while the other 4 players were forced to isolate because of close contact. Before that, Chris Clemons was also seriously injured and could not play.
One of the players who are positive for COVID-19 is rookie Kenyon Martin and he will need to have re-tests to see if the results are accurate. Before that, Martin and John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins got together to cut their hair so that both Wall and Cousins had to be isolated.
The Houston Rockets experienced a serious force crisis because of COVID-19. Previously, Ben McLemore was positive for SARS-CoV-2, Jae’Sean Tate and Mason Jones were also quarantined because of close contact.
James Harden was also criticized for attending a party without wearing a mask. MVP 2018 was fined $ 50,000 for this action, but he had a negative result for SARS-CoV-2 and was also not involved in the postponement of the match.
The Rockets’ next match will be against Portland Trail Blazers on the morning of December 27. If all 8 players are negative for COVID-19, this team will have to play.
The Oklahoma City Thunder players will return to OKC shortly. They will stay here for 2 days before flying again to Charlotte to encounter the Hornets. Remember back in March, Thunder featured in the first NBA game postponed because of COVID-19, against the Utah Jazz.
