Multiple positive or inconclusive coronavirus tests, and a health protocol breach, left the Houston Rockets with too few players to compete in their season opener.
The N.B.A. is postponing a game on just the second day of its season because the Houston Rockets did not have enough players to compete after multiple players received positive or inconclusive coronavirus test results and their star guard James Harden violated the league’s health protocols.
The Rockets were to have faced the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
This is a developing story.
