House was a late scratch for Houston’s Game 3 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers because of what the Rockets termed “personal reasons,” and sources said there’s no indication that the league will allow him to play in Game 4 on Thursday. The Lakers lead the Rockets 2-1 in the best-of-seven playoff series.
The National Basketball Players Association has been talking to league officials on House’s behalf and trying to find a resolution on the issue, sources said.
The NBA is believed to be considering whether House could be subjected to a 10-day quarantine period for an alleged violation, sources said.
