Thunder season opener at Houston postponed

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s regular season opener against the Houston Rockets has been postponed.

Three Houston Rockets players have returned positive or inconclusive coronavirus tests, the NBA announced.

In addition, four Rockets players were in quarantine due to contact tracing, leaving Houston with an insufficient amount of players Wednesday evening.

Also, the NBA determined Rockets star James Harden recently violated league health protocols after a video surfaced of Harden at a crowded party without a mask.

The Thunder are set to visit the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.
