The 2020-21 NBA season has just started, and the first game has already been postponed.
The reason was that the Houston Rockets didn’t have the mandatory eight players to begin the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
James Harden’s violation of health safety protocols (not wearing a mask at a crowded party) was not the only reason. John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, and Martin (who has tested positive) were among Rockets players gathered on Tuesday evening at a player’s apartment getting haircuts. Another player is out due to injury.
