Houston Rockets guard John Wall has tested negative for the coronavirus, but he is among a group of players sent home Wednesday afternoon because of a positive test of another teammate, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Rockets’ contact tracing is connected to testing on rookie Kenyon Martin Jr., sources tell ESPN. Martin is on the team injury report now as “not with team, self isolating.”
The Rockets disclosed Tuesday that guard Ben McLemore is in self-isolation and out for Wednesday night’s regular-season opener against the Oklahoma City Thunder. McLemore tested positive for the coronavirus days ago, sources said.
The Thunder told ESPN that they have not heard anything from the league about the status of Wednesday’s game.
