Multiple Houston Rockets players are expected to miss the team’s season opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, a report emerged that Rockets superstar James Harden could be out for the opener after allegedly being spotted at a strip club.

However, it has been reported that Harden’s alleged trip is not behind the contract tracing concerns.

Several newcomers, including former All-Stars John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, will reportedly not make their Rockets debut.

The Rockets have been surrounded by a ton of a drama in recent weeks in the aftermath of Harden demanding a trade. While the franchise is open to trading the former MVP, it has not found a suitable deal.

The Rockets lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in five games in the second round of the 2020 postseason.
