Kelly Iko: D’Antoni on whether House will play again this series: “The investigation is going on. So when they come out with the ruling, we’ll go from there”
Spencer Dinwiddie: Obviously I wasn’t in the bubble so I don’t know the official rules and that’s my disclaimer. But from the outside looking in *no pun intended* If she’s permitted to be in the bubble, and he’s permitted to be in the bubble. Grown ppl can make safe decisions... *pun intended*
ESPN reported on Wednesday that House’s status for the remainder of the Western Conference semifinals is in jeopardy due to the investigation. Yahoo Sports! reported on Thursday morning that the league is investigating House for allegedly allowing a female testing official into his hotel room.
Here is what The Athletic has been able to confirm via multiple sources: A female entered the Rockets’ team hotel on Monday night, passing multiple security checkpoints before being flagged for her entry, sources said. She exited the hotel in the early hours of Tuesday morning, and the league cited early data points that implicated two members of the Rockets, House and Tyson Chandler, sources said. When the female was questioned by NBA security, she did not implicate House’s name and it is uncertain whether she remains on campus, sources said. She claimed to have contact with Chandler and another player, not named House, according to sources.
Chandler was cleared on Wednesday and was not listed on the team’s injury report for Thursday’s Game 4, where House was listed out. The league’s investigation cleared Chandler and focused toward House on Wednesday, sources said. “This is done out of precaution and making sure the NBA’s campus standards are upheld,” one source with knowledge told The Athletic.
House maintains his innocence, sources said, and a decision from the league is expected before Game 4 on Thursday.
Opposing teams are closely monitoring how the league handles this situation. The Rockets are the lone remaining team staying at Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort, which is where the team undergoes its daily testing.

You’re an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Are there certain things you learned from your last free-agent experience that you can use this time around? Richaun Holmes: “I think during my last free agency, I just learned how to gauge the situations that are best for me and my family. Just understanding the situations that I’m going to put myself in as far as living conditions and things of that sort, just understanding everything about choosing where you’re going to play next, understanding the impact that it’s going to have and how big of a decision it is and how much thought you really want to put into it — not just for yourself but for your family as well. I just think the seriousness of it and how you want to think [about things] and make sure you make the right decision… I feel like those are all things I learned the last time I went through it.”
Do you think your name should get mentioned more when people are discussing the best two-way centers in the NBA? Do you feel like you’re underrated? Richaun Holmes: “I feel like my name has always been one that kind of flies under the radar. It’s always kind of an afterthought and things of that sort. I just want to continue to prove and continue to show [my value] on the floor, and let my talking get done on the floor. I just want to show the type of player that I am, just show that I’m one of the best two-way players, just show that I’m deserving of the All-Defensive Team and just continue to show [what I can do]. I want to continue to get better on the floor and just let my numbers and things of that sort prove my case.”
