Houston Rockets small forward Danuel House Jr., who missed his team's playoff game Tuesday for what the team called "personal reasons," could also sit for the remainder of the series over what sources described as a violation of protocol within the NBA bubble near Orlando. ESPN reported Wednesday night that the NBA is investigating House, the team's sixth man, for a possible violation, though neither the league nor the team gave specifics about an infraction.

House has denied violating the protocol, and sources told NBA that he did not leave the NBA campus. Game 4 of the Rockets-Los Angeles Lakers Western Conference semifinal series is set for Thursday afternoon. The Lakers defeated the Rockets 112-102 on Tuesday to take a 2-1 lead in the series.

In 63 games this season, House averaged 10.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists in just over 30 minutes. In nine postseason games this season, he is averaging 11.4 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists. The 27-year-old House went undrafted out of Texas A&M and signed with the Washington Wizards in 2016. He played in only one game with Washington before the Phoenix Suns picked him up in December 2017. He played 23 games for the Suns that season.

House has spent the past two seasons with the Rockets, drawing praise from head coach Mike D'Antoni as one of the NBA's most underrated two-way players.
