Houston Rockets guard James Harden may have violated the NBA’s coronavirus protocols. In a video circulating on social media, Harden appears to be at a strip club with no mask and no social distancing.
Also, Harden appears to receive a gift in the video. He appears to be at the strip club with rookie Jae’Sean Tate.
Harden has denied being at the strip club. The NBA is investigating the matter.

“One thing after another,” Harden said in a screen shot captured by The Athletic. “I went to show love to my home girl at her event (not a strip club) because she is becoming a boss and putting her people in position of success and now it’s a problem.
“Everyday its something different. No matter how many times people try to draft my name under you can’t. The real always end on top.”
If the NBA rules that he violated their COVID-19 protocols, Harden is looking at a suspension. Since the news broke on Wednesday morning, it’s not clear if they’ll make a decision before the Rockets game with the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Following this home game with the Thunder, the Rockets are on the road for the next two games. On Saturday, they visit the Portland Trail Blazers in Portland, Oregon.
Then, on Monday, the team will play their second road game against the Denver Nuggets in Denver Nuggets. On New Year’s Eve, the Rockets host the Sacramento Kings.
The Rockets will already be short-handed on Wednesday night. They’ll be without John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins for the game against the Thunder.
Both — who were acquired in the off-season — are out due to contact tracing.
