Rumors on social media swirled after Rockets forward Danuel House missed Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Lakers for "personal reasons."
The rumors ranged from sneaking a woman into the team hotel to hooking up with reporter Taylor Rooks.
Breaking: inside sources have told me Danuel House was kicked out of the bubble for having Taylor Rooks sneak into his room. Chandler tried to take the fall, but it was caught on camera.

So I’ve gathered more information and no it isn’t Taylor Rooks, but apparently Danuel House snuck in a female that wasn’t his girl, but the source this is coming from is a friend of Bron/Laker fan so I don’t know how serious to take it. Just gotta wait & see what comes out

Now that House has also been ruled out for Game 4 reports are coming out that the NBA is investigating him for a potential violation of bubble protocol.
House was a late scratch for Rockets’ Game 3 loss to the Lakers due to “personal reasons” and is listed as "out" for Thursday’s Game 4 on the official injury report. Sources say league hasn't cleared him to play in Game 4 yet, but NBPA and NBA are discussing issue. https://t.co/VFY865aLlH

All of the facts aren't out yet, but it looks like House had some sort of issue with sneaking in or inviting someone to the bubble who isn't his wife or girlfriend.
You knew someone was going to do it and I absolutely love either of those moves.
