Harden must pass six COVID-19 tests before joining training

James Harden’s delay in arriving in Houston has had its consequences. According to Tim MacMahon, a journalist for ESPN, the fact that it took so many days to appear at the Rockets training camp has caused the NBA to force the guard to test negative in six COVID-19 tests before joining it, in instead of the three that have been necessary for the rest of the players. Given that La Barba underwent the first test last Tuesday, December 8, this means that he will not be able to exercise with his teammates until at least Monday the 14th, three days after the Texans play their first preseason game.

In recent days, Harden has been seen in Atlanta and Las Vegas at artist Lil Baby’s birthday party, an event that violates the protocols established by the league. He is shooting guard, whose interest in continuing with the Rockets is nil right now, seems determined to force the franchise to find him a transfer, and in fact during this period he has not been in contact with Stephen Silas, his new coach, who has found with a most delicate situation in his first months at the helm of an NBA bench.

In any case, this period of player rebellion seems to be over, at least for now. It remains to be seen if, once reincorporated to the Rockets’ discipline, the guard continues to tighten the rope to try to leave as soon as possible or if he agrees to continue playing normally while waiting for an agreement that seems inevitable.
