House (personal) has left the NBA bubble in Orlando and won't suit up for the Rockets again this season, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports. After an NBA investigation, House was determined to have "had a guest in his hotel room over multiple hours Sept. 8 who was not authorized to be on campus." As a result, House will be leaving the bubble without the option to return. For the remainder of the Rockets' playoff run, Jeff Green, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore should all be in store for extra run.
House (personal) is out for Saturday's Game 5 against the Lakers. Due to a potential violation of campus protocol, House will need to remain sidelined while the league investigates. Jeff Green, Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore remain candidates to see extra run.
House (personal), who is listed as out for Thursday's Game 4 matchup with the Lakers, could miss the remainder of the Rockets' Western Conference semifinals series while the NBA probes his potential violation of campus protocol at the Orlando bubble, Adrian Wojnarowski and Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com report. The Rockets made House a late scratch ahead of their Game 3 loss Tuesday, attributing the sixth man's absence to "personal reasons." According to sources familiar with the situation, House never left the NBA campus, but the league is looking into his activity within the team hotel. If the league determines that House breached protocol, he could be subject to a 10-day quarantine period that would sideline him for the remainder of this series and -- if the Rockets overcome their 2-1 series deficit and advance -- a portion of the Western Conference Finals.
House (personal) is listed as out for Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers. House missed Game 3 on Tuesday due to a personal matter, and the Rockets have now ruled him out for a second straight contest. In his absence, expect Jeff Green to again pick up some of the slack, with Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore also potentially in line for increased playing time.
House's (personal) status for Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers remains undecided, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. House was scratched from Game 3 due to a personal matter, and it's not yet clear what, exactly, prompted the absence. At practice Wednesday, coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters that he's still waiting to hear whether House will be available for Game 4. After going scoreless in Game 1, House hit three three-pointers en route to 13 points in Game 2.
