Rockets' Danuel House Jr. unavailable for Game 3 vs. Lakers

Houston Rockets sixth man Danuel House Jr. is not available for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Los Angeles Lakers because of personal reasons.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said House's absence is not related to COVID-19.

House has averaged 11.4 points and 5.8 rebounds during the playoffs.

House's absence creates a significant void in the Rockets' rotation. Forward Jeff Green is the only other Houston reserve who played more than seven minutes in the Rockets' Game 2 loss.
