Tonight’s Rockets-Thunder Matchup Is Postponed

After the false-positive COVID test of Rockets’ forward KJ Martin that led to a contact-tracing disaster, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that tonight’s Rockets-Thunder matchup is “in jeopardy.”

Talk about a panic.

The only player who has officially tested positive for COVID is Rockets’ guard Ben McLemore, and he is self-isolating as we speak. You’d think his positive test was the cause of this ruckus, but it’s not. Wojnarowski reported earlier this evening that McLemore’s positive test hasn’t caused the contact tracing.

Common sense tells us that someone else on the Rockets has tested positive for COVID, and they won’t tell us who.

A Woj bomb is inevitable in the next 30 minutes or so. It will probably tell us why the Rockets are in such disarray. Stay tuned…

Update:

Rockets-Thunder has officially been postponed. The league cites the fact the Rockets don’t have enough players to play as the reason. Yikes.
